    Donald is right! Spend some money on a good grinder (kværn, ikke "hakker"), a decent espresso machine, and you could still have enough money for a good MF camera (or a great LF camera with one lens).

    Man, now that's my kind of dilemma! Coffee and cameras, my two favorite things.

    Good luck with whatever you decide!

    Get the camera. You find a shop to sell you an espresso. Sell some of your great MF created prints, then use some of that money to buy an espresso machine.

    Or, buy a really good espresso machine, start selling shots, use that money to buy a camera. Either way, you'll get both eventually.

    Learn to love tea...

    No expensive nicknacks required (unless you insist on a 17th century silver teapot) leaving lots of space in the wallet for that camera you just KNOW you are going to buy anyway....

    I have a Krupps coffee grinder (~$20 ? - been years now, and I've forgotten) and a Bodun Coffee Press (~$30 ? who counts?).

    To hell with espresso.

    try...

    ...other types of ground coffee and get a caffetiere instead-they're EXTREMELY cheap(leaving you plenty of money for a nice MF camera),and ideal for coffee for one.
    Alternatively,buy a Mamiya tlr-6x6 negs,7 lenses(which you can still find if you look hard enough),and very reasonably priced on ebay,which leaves you plenty of money for the coffee machine.
    A common mistake people made when designing something completely foolproof was to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

    ... Just as you can tell that mny of the people here have absolutely no idea of how good a good coffee can be. Go wit hyour instincts - and your nose. If you can't tell the difference between British and Ethiopian coffee, you deserve what you get.

    And if I can put in a plug for my favorite coffee, check out--

    www.molokaicoffee.com

    I recommend the Malulani Estate coffee, the Espresso Roast if you prefer a darker roast (more of a chocolatey flavor than the Malulani Estate, but both make a good espresso), and the Island Princess with Tahitian vanilla if you like flavored coffees.

    I don't particularly recommend the "Muleskinner" or "Gold" labels over the others, and haven't tried the decaf.

    The Malulani Estate coffee has gotten to be better than 100% Kona, in my opinion, but is about half the price. I just ordered another 5 lb.
