More on the espresso machine frustration

Popped in to Brisbane Appliance Repairs at Moorooka this morning to see about getting the espresso machine fixed up. Sadly, the beast needs a new brew head because the screw hole is buggered. That part is $90, add in labour and we’re at $150. Then adding the cost of a replacement handle (which I managed to break last night :<) at $56 and it’s all rather bleak and frustrating. While I wait for my replacement to arrive (I’ve taken the easy way out and I’m redeeming flybuys points to get a new one), I’ll just have to use a plunger, or my Moka, or get off my behind and ride in to Cup at West End instead.
