A bean-to-cup machine will make cups of espresso. All you do is put beans in one end, and compressed waste and waste water comes out the other end.

Like this: Talea Super-automatic espresso machine RI9828/47 | Saeco

Which is what I had at home.
Wow, that's impressive. Love my coffee, but don't think I could bring myself to drop $1,700 on a coffee maker.

Holy crap. I had no idea, I was also speaking of the drip machine like Belizesailor!!! Putting a device like that on a boat is out of my league!!!

Re: Bean to Cup Machines?

It's all about the beans. Just grind'em up, put a basket style filter in a mini colander with a handle. Heat clean water in the tea kettle pour it through the grounds while colander is setting on the coffee mug. Grounds will make two good good strong cups. When finished, discard grounds and filter into trash bag. Who needs expensive equipment for a simple beverage?

Re: Bean to Cup Machines?

I have the Jura C5 super automatic which I think is now out of production. But my sister recently got a https://www.wholelattelove.com/produ...7-18d1a59fe4c0 and loves it. Going for $400 now (she paid more).

Re: Bean to Cup Machines?

I am with Weavis on the value of semi-automatic machines over the superautomatic. Look at a Gaggia Classic with the PID mod, it is about $600, but requires an accurate grinder. With it you can make exquisite espressos and lattes, and even learn to do latte art. These things do require lots of power though. Another is the Rancilio Silva.

Re: Bean to Cup Machines?

We had a large DeLonghi ashore and loved it. When we moved onto the boat we found a smaller DeLonghi machine for about $300 on Amazon. It works just as well as the big machine and takes less space. Makes great coffee - worth starting your gen if you need to.

Re: Bean to Cup Machines?

Instant coffee, usually stale, no cream or sugar...just really strong coffee. My cups smell like diesel and are stained with greasy thumbprints.

If you want a fancy drink, go ashore.

Re: Bean to Cup Machines?

The English coffee machine manufacturer Fracino make a dual fuel lpg and electric for coffee trucks. About $1000-$1200 will get a super single group head which will sit there heating on gas........... Ive used them and found no problems at all and also superior to a lot of other machines on the market.

a good grinder will start at $300. Then you are setup for coffee.

Carry a sack of your favourite beans-roast on demand and ll is good.

Ah yes............. the taste of Robusta. I use a 30% Robusta mix with Arabica to make Torrefacto with the beans roasted in sugar for the continental taste.

Sounds like what we drink on passage.

However, since I mostly live aboard, waiting to "go ashore" for good coffee is not a very good option for me.
