Last Week's Answer: Hand-Pump Espresso Machine

Congratulations to DanC, who correctly guessed the gadget from last week! As a most awesome prize, DanC will get a mention in the description below. Hey, at least the odds of winning are better than the Arizona Lottery.

We wants it. We needs it. Must have the Precious. The Precious comes first! We need espresso fix in morning, and Precious gives it to us -- anywhere. We must take Precious with us on adventures. Precious can perk up Gandolf's cranky, old-man ass, too, yes.

Precious needs no electricity. Pump the Precious until needle is in green. Add hot water to the Precious. Place E.S.E. pod in the filter of Precious. Precious makes beautiful cafe-quality espresso, cappuccino, Americano, and latte coffee drinks. Yes, the Precious does. And easy clean-up, too. Yes.

We wants the Precious as gift. We needs $80 to buy the Precious. We knows the Precious can save us from the evil forces of Sauron Starbucks.

Master DanC knows of the Precious. Master DanC can get us the Precious. We will go to DanC's hobbit hole tonight and stare at him until we get the Precious.

Sleep tight, DanC.
