Transcontinental Coffee Maker Tutorial

I was curious this morning about this coffee maker, one, it turns out, that belongs to Olle’s inlaws. As Catherine is a connoisseur of all things coffee, it’s in my best interests to keep up in the field.

So I called Olle in Copenhagen using Skype, and he walked me through how it works. He added some annotations to the photo, and I added some more of my own. If we’d been set up for it, we should have recorded the call and turned it into a podcast.

I think this was “e-learning” in action.

I asked the owner of the machine a few questions about it, and he gave me the grand historical tour (via text chat) of the machine’s existence, its cult, and its pricing.

I added some of that to the photo.

Indeed, the espresso I brewed for you, Doc and Ben in Copenhagen was on a Europiccola, also known as the Chrome Peacock. :)

Hope to see you back here (for a full demo).
