Unreal bit of gear


k to someone in the know. Getting the right grind size and quantity and tamping pressure is the difference between an OK cup and a great cup. Reviewers on here who slag TLG are probably not getting the right inputs (crap coffee, big grinds, old and...

Great machine


I purchased an 'Otto' over 5 years ago, after my Atomic started to struggle, and it just keeps getting better. Three things stand out about the Otto/TLG. First, it is an incredibly well crafted and beautifully designed machine. Second, the coffee it...

What ever did I do before the little guy came along?


I love my little guy. It's unique look makes it a talking piece of my kitchen when visitors come over. Thereafter, it doesn't disappoint with the coffee it makes. It's straight forward to use. It's about as easy/ difficult to clean as any other coffee...
