Detailed Commentary

Although I don't rate Atomics as being easy to use, the process of making coffee with one is a special event in itself, which I have developed into a meditational process. I breathe deeply and evenly in a relaxed and yet controlled manner. I am able to focus on one, not even one, for each step in the process, honing my ability to gain control over my undisciplined mind. As such, making coffee with my Atomic is the highlight of the morning, and if I am lucky enough to have friends present, it can quite easily be the highlight of the day.

I love the experience. I imagine that if I could go back in time and sample a coffee from the fifties in Italy, this is how it would taste. There is something nostalgic drinking the espresso that this machine produces, and this contributes to the coffee drinking experience in a way that I believe cannot be replicated by a modern device, despite the benefits gained from modern technological advances. I may sound like a religious fanatic, but does my enthusiasm itself not convince you of the transcendent eminence of this wonderously eloquent and beautiful coffee maker?

Apart from the culinary and spiritual benefits I gain from using my Atomic, it is also visually pleasing. I need no other objects gracing my kitchen bench.

I found my Atomic in a garage, and had it fixed at Bon Trading in Australia. I can tell that this is one of the few devices that I will have for years to come.
