Delicious espresso beans from Johnson Brothers. Wow is all I can say. This is the first time I have tried their coffee beans and I must say the beans called Twisted I recommend for sure. It is rich creamy and full of flavors. Add some frothed milk and you are in for a great ride. I am having my second cup of the afternoon and must say I am a very happy camper with this. Check out the image and see the coffee bean package. You can also see my Capresso model 560.4 This unit grinds the coffee beans just fine for me. All in all a nice compact little setup. Now for those of you into enjoying your camping and traveling experience as much […]
I pulled a nice espresso this afternoon at my campsite. This Delonghi ec155 seems to work fine in tight quarters. I like how it works. It is easy to clean. It produces nice crema on top of the espresso. The frother works fine as well. It heats up the milk in about 1.5 to 2 min. and creates a fine foam top.

It seems to be somewhere in the area of mid fine to top fine grind with this machine. All in all I am a happy camper to be able to […]
Deluxe campsite espresso that is amazing. After much research for a small quality espresso maker electric I purchased a Delonghi ec155 espresso maker. The Bialetti stove top espresso maker is great and I love it but this works so darn well on the road it blows my mind. Check out the video below to get a quick overview of the Delonghi ec155 espresso machine. Additionally I added a separate coffee bean tamper, a temperature gauge for frothing and a Capresso 560.04 Infinity Commercial Grade Conical Burr Coffee Grinder. The grinder is great.
