I did that. Went through my own one week of hell to the point other people were asking me if I was okay because I looked like I was sick. After you get through it it's not to bad.

Granted I now still technically have caffeine but it's a very small amount that you find in decaf coffee. No where near the 3 or 4 cup minimum of coffee and diet soda I was downing everyday.

Re: Pimp That Product

There's nothing wrong with caffeine in moderation. Coffee has been cited as beneficial in some health areas if any of those studies can actually be trusted.

It's also a healthier alternative to pre-workout supplements that are basically chemicals with caffeine, and just as effective.

Its only avialble in the smaller sizes so its not for me, but you may want to look into it.

Also is cappuccino just espresso with milk or cream? If so that "Mukka Pot" might produce pressurized espresso if you dont put milk in the top part.

I will say this about my pot. It makes really strong coffee but its not bad tasting like strong coffee can be. Its somehow smooth tasting. That said i wouldnt mind if it was less strong.

So part of the reason i wanted a french press or something like what i got is because i heard the best part of the coffee for you is the oil. Oil will aslo supposedly turn your coffee bitter much faster so thats the major turn off. But if you drink it quick or make personally sized cup the oil is susposed to be good for you.

Unfortunately i dont think my pot allows for anymore oil than a pot that uses a paper filter. So maybe a french press is the only way to get that oil.

It's not quite espresso, but probably to the average drinker it wouldn't matter.

Moka pots are sometimes referred to as stove-top espresso makers and produce coffee with an extraction ratio similar to that of a conventional espresso machine. Depending on bean variety and grind selection, Moka pots can create a foam emulsion, known as crema. However, the maximum pressure for coffee extraction which can be achieved with a Moka pot is 1.5 bar[citation needed]. According to the Italian Espresso National Institute and the Specialty Coffee Association of America, an espresso must be made using a precise extraction pressure of 9 bar.[11][12] So, while a Moka coffee pot can produce a crema similar to espressos, different equipment is required to make a true espresso.

Re: Pimp That Product

Anyone use laptop cooling pads and if so do they work? I got a new gaming laptop and it can get a bit hot. Graphics are amazing and the prices of games are awesome. Sucks that not everything is compatible with the 360 windows controller but thats beside the point. Either way after about 20 to 30 minutes it gets relatively warm. Not blistering hot but seeing as how it's new and I freak out about everything I want the best for my baby.

Re: Pimp That Product

I use a laptop pad, it's extremely cheap, flimsy, makes loud noises when it starts and half the time the fans don't work. I did buy it at Micro Center for 10 bucks though, so that's to be expected. I honestly don't know whether the more expensive models are worth it, but when I got my laptop I felt I needed one because Toshiba's have a rep for overheating.

And you know what the funny thing is? I didn't even know who it was made by but after a quick glance at it and an online search, I found it for 28 bucks at Walmart.com.

PS don't buy this one.

Inland Notebook Cooling Pad: Computers : Walmart.com

And you know what you can't tell from the picture? The usb wire that connects to your laptop is exposed (i actually taped all the excess wire to the back of the pad) on top of the fact that the slightest jolt will cause one of the fans to stop working, or for it to make this loud noise that sounds like something's broken for like 5 minutes.
