Oomph device

I met these guys at Cup North. I have tried to resist temptation ....do I really need another machine?

But I have finally given into temptation and pledged enough to get a unit when it becomes available. I use a Aeropress every day at work at the Oomph looks even easier.

I'll let you know more when I get it but so far I really like the look of it not least because there are no messy paper filters.

This is useless in my point of view, why not just enter a coffee shop when you want your coffee when you on the go?

Ok ...got my Oomph a couple of weeks ago and so far...I love it!

Take the point about going into a coffee shop but....

1. There are no good coffee shops near where I work.
2. I actually can't get out of work when I want to and usually get 40 mins for lunch meaning I need a quick way to brew on the go.
3. Gadgets are fun because and you can alter the brew to get it just the way you like it.

Worth a look IMO..

What do you do about grinding? Do you have a hand grinder to go with it or do you grind at home and take your ground coffee with me. I find the grinding to be the limiting factor in making coffee away from my kitchen.

I decided I needed a bit of a change so I roasted some Monsooned Malabar. That was a change!

Hi Bruce,

I usually grind enough at home to last me a couple of days and keep it in one of those glass jars with a springy lid to keep it fresh.

This clearly is not ideal but I find the resulting brews are OK and have noticed that there is still a good amount of crema and body to the flavour. I just then take the jar home when empty and re fill.
