A couple of years ago, I started my own coffee shop in the city of Taunton, Massachusetts, which is roughly 20 miles south of Boston.

The shop was a small, three-story shop with a narrow barista-turned-barista booth in front, and there were only a few customers, so I made the coffee from scratch. 

After that, I took a few trips to Europe to see how my coffee was doing, and I’ve been really happy with the results. 

This is the coffee I use at the Taunson coffee shop.

I prefer a low-acid, roast-heavy brew that doesn’t require a lot of boiling, so my T Shirt press machine is perfect for that. 

The T Shirt machine also makes a lot more money than most of the other machines in my coffee shop because it’s not a lot pricier than most machines. 

Here’s the difference between my T shirt press machine and other coffee machines.

It’s not cheap, but I like the quality of the product, and it’s the only machine I use on a daily basis that I actually enjoy using. 

T shirt presses are great for making a coffee that’s more than just a simple cup of coffee.

They’re great for getting a fresh, flavorful cup of espresso, as well as a quick espresso shot in the morning. 

If you’re a coffee aficionado like me, you might find a T Shirt coffee machine to be your first choice for a good cup of joe.
