Wanted: Espresso Machine Handle
Q: I have the Starbucks Basic Black, Barista espresso machine. i broke the handle while tightening it - I must of had one too many shots at that point. Does anyone have a similar machine that my be out of service and could part with the handle? Starbucks has them back ordered until September and I'm Jonesing for my morning espressos! Or, can any one reccomend a reasonably priced machine that makes good espresso and foam? The above descibed machine has inconsistent results.
A: Yes, handles are easy! I had a older starbuck machine with a broken handle that my brother welded a handle from a potbelly stove lid to the broken basket. It is far better than the original. I also have another Brugnetti machine with a similar tacked on a handle and it is fine too. Both make good crema. Gave a late model handle to goodwill that I could now be using, but oh well. Be creative, it beats giving money to Starmucks. Oh and ebay is always a source of nearly anything.
