If you like cappuccino, the Mukka does a decent job. I’ve had issues with the valve, leaking from the o-ring. That causes it to not get up to full pressure. Looking online, they’re not cheap pots/parts. I see now they discontinued making it.

East enough to get that much. 10lbs here, 30 here, etc. When you find stuff you like at a good price, you really gotta jump on it quick. I have missed sales when the offer was 150lbs and it would sell out in 25 minutes.
Blessings you all!

I found a stainless (not sure of the brand) 2 or 3 cup in a thrift store for a buck or so a couple months ago, I suppose someday I should actually try it.

Honestly though, my aeropress does a better job than any of the pots.
Please help me on the AeroPress, as I am not a fan and I Have had it for yeeeears.

I recently even got the Fellow Prismo adapter, and still have the same thoughts about it... It is a good dust collector currently.

I had a Mukka several years ago and I loved that thing. But yeah, the valve and frother ended up malfunctioning and I eventually threw it in the garbage. Too bad it was badly designed.

Sounds like I'll stick with the Moka Express I got. I rather add the milk myself after reading up on it.

For sure. I've had my 1-cupper since college and it's still producing quality brew. The rubber gasket is the only thing that needs replacing once in a while. Try making a cafe cubano. It's really easy, strong, and pairs well with a petite corona.

Maybe it's just not your thing then.

I just follow the directions as they were written and I like it. And don't grind too fine.

I will give it a go when I roast my own. Same here, followed the instructions, watched a few videos.

Grind is supposed to be on the coarse side.

Put it up for sale or donate then. Why have it collect dust.

I may just do that if I feel the same way after the home roast.
