A little perk





Where? Salvation Army Opshop, Station St Box Hill.
When? Several weeks ago
What? Well, that had me stumped for a moment. But I figured it out- it's a stovetop espresso-maker! It's 15 centimetres high and makes 2 standard espresso-size coffees. The tiny little Italian espresso cups I scored months before at another opshop en route to Geelong fit exactly on the little ledges. Works perfectly.

The only problem with it? Well, my designated coffee-partner and I need more of a hit... we currently use a Bialetti 24-cup espresso-maker for our morning cups of joe, and this little guy could only supply about 8% of our required caffeine. So it's sort of going to be an emergency coffee-maker I guess. I might even store it in the first-aid kit.

What a great quirky find! I've never seen one like that before. It would be great for camping.

You bet me to it: I was about to say I think it's a camping espresso machine...
