Take it from an expert, it is an utter waste of time. A complete load of Gargar actually.

aargh, now my (solid stainless steel) moka pot has sprung a leak :( Hope the aeropress arrives soon, or I might have to go cold turkey...

Is that some special elevator for lfting Kiwi fruit, or merely one badged "Made in NZ" ?
My favourite lift is one that's quite common in posh Irish hotels. It's made by a company called Schindler - Shindler's Lifts, ho, ho!
Mind you, I once knew a milkman named Underwood (think about it)

This is terrible. Maybe someone can loan you a pour-over funnel or similar.

Breako, watch out. It sounds like you have some BIG competition!

Jon, you never need to go cold turkey. Go cold coffee! Or do like many east europeans - just pour coffee into a glass of hot water, stir, wait until the grounds settle and drink.

To be fair, I don't think I broke the moka - have had it for a year or so, and I'm guessing the filter's worn down too much. Anyway, it still works for now, and I'm sure in desparation I could find another solution :)
