    I find the hangover the next day is the measure of any beer. Anyone that's downed a dozen or more silver bullets back in the day will understand what I mean. They made you crook as a dog the next day.

    Also, Swell on Llewelyn St is pretty solid. And Bolton Street Pantry.

    If only they knew how to make coffee in western Sydney. Can't find anything better than a 7/10 around here, other than a few places in Parra.
    haha I used to be head barista at both of those joints owned by the same people, so I will take that as a compliment.

    I just drink cold brew now, the guy at the markets that sells it does a great job if I can't be ****ed making my own.

    All I drink is double shots of espresso in a 90ml espresso cup. I can't bring myself to put sugar or milk into it as it destroys the flavour and aroma.
    I'm currently on the hunt for a coffee machine to save a few bucks - but doing the maths it will take about 5 years before I break even - if I'm lucky.

    And can I get a machine that fills a cup. This 60ml of supposed "good" coffee is for mice (& roaches).

    Your Gulfstream G550 should have come with a coffee machine Hawk.

    If I was going to get a home coffee machine and had Hawk like cash the only machine to purchase is a La marzocco GS3 about the $8k mark, something a bit more reasonable is the La marzocco Linea Mini aorund the $5k mark, but just as importantly as the machine is the grinder and a mazzer mini about $1k is the go.

    A good grinder is as important if not more important than the machine so factor that into your costs.

    As for my home coffee, I run a hario skerton hand grinder, bonavita electric kettle which allows temp control and precise pouring and a chemex as the pour over device, either that or buy a bottle of cold brew from the guy at the farmers markets and have it on ice.
