Our pet cockatiel thinks he can make espresso as good as I can. He still hasn't figured out how to remove the portafilter.

(We don't encourage him to land there, but we do let him fly around the house.)

I'd be careful. He appears to have a  bottomless portafilter, if you know what I mean....

Hi Bud,

Beautiful looking cockatiel! ;)
What's his/her name & the age of your bird?

I hope he/she doesn't try to use the grouphead as a mirror, & maybe try to jump up on top of it for obvious reasons! {:-O


P.S. Added Joey here on Tues Nov 19th @ 6:25pm, my Java Hill Mynah bird. He just turned 10 years old on Nov 11th.

His name is "Muffin" and he's fairly deserving of that monicker. I believe he's around 8 years old now.

Well, unfortunately, I am waiting for that day. I think what would happen is that he'd eject his tail feathers and then fly around the house screaming for a while.

(He already flies around the house screaming when I knock out a puck.)

He's the kind of bird that has to learn his lessons the hard way. :-/

Thanks for the compliments!
