My interest in espresso came from a stunning espresso in a local restaurant.
What have you got?
I tried to replicate this at home, buying an Iberital MC2 grinder and Francis Francis X1.
For espresso it's now a Londinium L1 and Mythos One Clima Pro. I don't use the bean heater on the Mythos so, apart from looking a bit less ugly, its pretty much used as a standard Mythos.
For brewed it's a Made By Knock Hausgrind grinder (one of the original wooden models with a dent from where I once dropped it) and AeroPress.
Why do you love it?
Consistency! Once dialled in, every cup of coffee is a good cup.
What would you change?
I don't really have a dream setup. I'm happy with the coffee that I make so don't go window shopping to remove any temptation.
I would plumb the L1 into mains water to remove the annoying vibe pump.
