My son Jay is in Iraq serving at Al Assad Air Base and has told me the guys there are truely suffering for some espresso.
The coffee is terrible so I am beginning a drive to raise $3,000 for the purchase and delivery of a Rancilio Epoca E1 Automatic Espresso Machine with grinder and accessories for the squadron there at Al Assad.
Maybe you and the people you know can help:
Thanks a million,
It was good to talk to you today. I love you tons! Don't worry, I'm ok here in Iraq, I promise! Below is my address if you want to send anything care package wise and if you get your hands on an espresso machine. If you want to enclose some of your great coffee as well that would be great! Don't you have to have a grinder to grind the coffee for the machine? Keep in mind that we have NOTHING coffee wise here except for a Mr. Coffee drip pot. Look forward to talking with you again. Love you man!
