Don't beat me with your Third Wave stick!

Interesting look inside a superauto...inside a computer case.

Now THAT'S a lungo!

It is interesting how different (besides the obvious pressure issues in this example) the superauto brewing environment is to a traditional machine. The biggest difference (in my opnion) is puck diameter and the fact that the coffee does not brew top to bottom (it enters and exits through the sides). Also the pressure isn't created from puck resistance and basket residence on the bottom and water on the top. The pressure acts more evenly from all around (not exactly but you get my point). There's a lot to think about in regard to how this would effect the extraction. Also typical parameters related to dose would be different because of the smaller circumference and deeper bed-depth.
