What a flurry of posts!  Maybe I'll take a shot at this one.

Excuse the cluelessness, I was in the wrong thread, not sure how I ended up in this one, but good to know it's here anyway...

sorry, I'm new here, and I still can't decide whether to get a 4 cup or 2 cup. Obviously the 4 cup makes more, but It looks like the 2 cup makes a better coffee?
I've seen the picture posted up of the crema on a 2 cup, and it does look impressive. Does anybody have a picture of a 4 cup to compare? What about only using half the amount of water and or coffee in the 4 cup, will it produce a coffee of 2 cup quality. I'm so confused.
Oh, and if this has been mentioned before or anything, tell me to shut up and I will, I'm new even to the whole posting in a forum business, so I don't know the ins and outs and the rules quite just yet...

Many people like the 2 cup better than the 4 cup.  However, the 2 cup is not readily available in the U.S.  The 4 cup is (www.amazon.com).  I have the 4 cup and find it more than suits my purpose.  It makes about 4 oz. of espresso.  You cannot just put in 1/2 the amount of water (I do not believe so).  You need to make a full one each time to get the benefit of its crema producing system.

The 4 cup is fine! I LOVE it. I also prefer Moka and Brikka to espresso.

I just got a small woodstove for my shop.  In the winter I am going to try to make Brikka on it.  Should work fine.  Also this weekend I picked up a never used Coleman 9 cup Campfire Percolator for 50 cents.  (I know, Perc is yuk).  For the heck of it I tried it on my electric stove; it works great.  Coffee is so so being perc and of course used to Brikka and Aeropress.  But I figure that when working during the winter in the cold shop, it will be neat to brew my coffee on the woodstove.  Beats paying the a*shole electric company bucks to run my 220 volt electric stove!

oh, thanks for the replies and everything.
If anyone has pictures still, it'd be great and interesting to know.
I'm a student in the Uk, and need espresso after being addicted to it in Italy. And I'm not going to pay the 2($4!) for one in a cafe!
The 4 cup Brikka is a little easier to get over here, albeit, the price being equivalent to $80 at the cheapest.

Excuse my complete ignorance, but what is the difference between the Moka and the Brikka? I have Moka and love it!

 
My name is Kayes, and I'm obsessed with coffee.
