Seen this one at a coffee shop in the Swan Valley WA:

I considered buying one as a backup just in-case the Atomic had a problem which it has never had to this stage. The Mukka Express did look a bit light on in construction but for the occasional coffee would do the job.

Hi JR do you know the cost of the Mukka Express :?: I've googled them today, looks good but finding a huge variation in price and who has them. Thanks.
Regards Cathy.

Hi JR,
Just for my info, If you look inside the pot is it all pitted or does the food grade ally not become part of the brew. If it is that old it should be a good test. Mind you they didn't even think about food grade stuff back then.

we have a Bellman Stove Top. As we tend to bush camp a fiar bit we can't use the fancy electric ones so we use the fancy stainless steel ones instead. I love the long black and the wife likes the cappucino (sp) frother.

Here's the web addy ... http://www.coffeecraft.com.au/itemdetailspage/5123

Hi Jayco Gypsy,
Trying to remember the price I think about $80 but don’t hold me to that. The shop was called Bowl of Honey. Try giving them a call!

Address: 6 Cranleigh Street, West Swan
Tel: +61 8 9250 77116

I think the shop is one of many owned by the Cape Lavender chain.

Hi Dieseltojo,
Aluminium has been linked to odltimers disease, I think there are signs there but too late now.

Can’t really see in side but over the years have rinsed some flaky stuff out even gave it a rinse with that CLR stuff once. The Atomic is a pressure vessel with a safety valve (no gauge like Scoler’s Bellman) and due to the amount of scale that I have flushed out over the years I wonder if one day it will explode.
Used it in the home for many years but now it lives in the van and now has time to dry out and that allows the scale to form.

Hello everyone, after all this coffee talk just had to let you all know some-one at work made me a coffee today with a plunger, naturally a better option than instant. When I tasted it couldn't believe it was plunger. It was great the best I have ever tasted in a plunger. Asked how he was able to produce such a good coffee he just laughed :lol: and said it was all in the brewing. :confused:
Definitely going to pay attention to detail next time, if I can get that kind of taste!!
Regards Cathy.

Hi Dieseltojo,
Being a pensioner, I can't afford to buy the Mag. so don't have access to the relevant CD.
Can some-one please explain how you use a plunger ? Do you need a specific type of Coffee ? Do you use water or milk ? And what is the plunger for, apart from making Froth ?
Hope I get an answer this time.
Failing this, I'll just have to take my own advice, and Google it. [ I'll do that anyway when I get off here.]

Cheers,
xina.

Followed my own advice, and Googled it. For anyone else who is not familiar with them, click on this link.
