Our friend Jake has another insight into the pleasures of owning a Presso Espresso maker.
A few mornings ago, I discovered yet another reason why my Presso is superior to a coffee maker--one that seems obvious to me now, but that I hadn't thought of before. The discovery came about when my roommate, bleary-eyed, told me that we were out of coffee filters. What good is all this coffee, she said, if we can't make anything with it? I briefly entertained the idea of using a sock, before remembering that we could easily make Americanos for ourselves in the Presso and--because the Presso doesn't need them--having no coffee filters wouldn't present a challenge. I mean, people go out of their way to pay up to $20 for reusable metal filters for their drip machines, so obviously I'm not the one who is annoyed with paper filters that end up in the trash afterward. Five minutes later we were both sipping Americanos and I had another reason to appreciate the non-disposible nature of my Presso espresso maker.
