Doesn't make capuccino as such, but we carry a 4 cup percolator in our camping gear. Even the experts reckon they're the next best thing to a coffee machine. We use a percolator at home as well and have done for 30 years.

Fantastic coffee, almost as good as the home Gaggia :)

It actually works better than the Gaggia :D

That one has a pressure gauge to tell you when to froth the milk!
All you have to it fill it with water, put the coffee in the top and wait for it to steam and build pressure. Froth the milk then switch over to coffee and then drink it :D

There are two models, one with gauge and one without, like you I like gadgets, so I took the one with the dial :D

Makes a very good espresso or capuccino and you can make it strong or weak.

If you can remember the cafe, I can probably walk the couple of hundred metres and check 'em out, pick one up, slip it into the post.

Norton Street is very close.

Hi Simon, all i can say is it was about half way along before the town hall and was a cafe/Pizzaria, but i'm sure if you asked in any of the cafes someone should know if there is a cafe in Norton St that has them, after all they are a very popular item amongst the Italian community.

I searched everywhere last night for the invoice, hoping to find the cafe name or even the importer, i do remember the importers name started with LUM.

I will have another look tonight.

I would suggest looking at an aero press for on the go coffee. It makes better coffee then my fully auto machine [not as good as my manual] and is super quick and easy to clean up. All you need is your hot water and ground beans and your away.

It is strong and has no valves or seals to break. And comes in at about $55 bucks.

everywhere it goes it gets awesome reviews.

Tony, for some reason they do work better on gas flame, especially the Mukka machine, the one you have may be different because it's stainless, but our cast one does seem to work better on a flame.

Trial and error is the best way to make a good coffee Tony:D

Tony,

I only use it on a gas flame.
When we are in a Caravan Park, I use the electric Espresso Machine :)

The Bellman works best with gas as it is far hotter than electric can dish out. The more heat the quicker you get your cuppa. Just make sure it is not too hot when you put the water through the coffee, or it will burn the brew and make it taste terrible :eek:

So far, I have not had a bad cup of coffee from it :D

Cheers,
Ron
