Well Bruce I wanted to say thanks but you beat me to the punch. You too Sean for starting the thread.NotAMog wrote:As they say in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - "Pleasure to be of service!"
The credit for finding the Mukka Express goes to someone I met on one of Tom's Badlands trips. For years I had been using a cheap stove top espresso maker for camping. It made one cup of very strong coffee and I was happy although I prefer a cappuccino or latte since they are less harsh. I thought the Mukka Express was really cool the first time I saw it. I wasn't in a hurry to find one but one day happened to be in a Crate and Barrel and saw one there. It's been my favorite camping coffee maker ever since.
It fits well into the concept of overlanding - going to out of the way places in style and comfort.
I wrote a long story about how I ended up buying this Mukka from a very attractive Italian girl who races road bikes and is seeking her PHD in bio-mechanics at UCI. She listed it on Craigslist a long time ago and never sold it. Anyways we had a long chat about Italy, cycling and cappuchinos and I went on my merry way before I could get into any trouble. Did I say she loved my FJ , camping and such? As I was saying I went on my merry way....LOL I stlll have not learned my lesson on these forums and the whole story suddemly disappeared when I touched some random key . Sh@t. Anyway that's my acquisition srory.
I'm sipping on a Cap right now as I hit send and loving the newest addition to the family camping gear.
