           I wanted to generate some steam for a cup of tea,
           inspired by the interweb I found an old sewing machine to start with

                            
                            

 so now i can make me:  1 cup of coffee or tea.. Grin

Really nice! I hope the tea or coffee (if I'm allowed to use that word on a Steampunk forum  Wink) tastes as good as the device looks.

Yours,
Miranda.

Well done....extremely well done.
But now I have to go find me an old sewing machine and make one for myself  Tongue
 (I consume at least a liter of tea every day).

"Coffee," which IMHO is as much a Steampunk beverage as tea.

I call it the "C" word... Husband and daughter are fans. It is SO messy - grounds seem to end up all over the kitchen bench. Horrible stuff.

If your husband doesn't clean the kitchen bench- is that GROUNDS for separation or divorce?

Certainly grounds for coffee grounds 'mysteriously' winding up in his dinner.

There are one or two members of our local Steampunk group who view the consumption of coffee as a capital offence  Wink. Personally, whilst I prefer tea I do enjoy coffee too - so long as it's a good coffee, and ideally has a measure of something 'spirited' in it...

Yours,
Miranda.

Australia has been blessed in the past with immigrants to whom coffee is god, and the making of coffee is an art form! When Starbucks opened up here they were driven out of business as Starbucks, and had to refranchise themselves to make a comeback (I think they failed!) - their 'coffee' was considered slop! If the coffee is not good, the vendor will be told about it in no uncertain terms!

I was introduced to the then children's version of coffee (Coffee & Milk, in a tin or tube, like toothpaste) when I was nine - I haven't had a cup of tea since, and I am now retired! I make a mean pot of tea though, as both tea and coffee were consumed in our house, and my aunt, with whom I lived in Sydney for a few years, only drank tea!

Teein and coffein are basically the same, with one tiny difference as far as I remember...Teein works slower.
Im not a fan of coffee or tea :p so I cant really talk here. Drink coffee for 2 weeks and you believe you need
one in the morning to get going. Not a fan at all.

I agree, Anselmofanzero, my body is a temple, and I would never allow the evils of caffeine to pollute it... Beer and wine though - totally different  Grin.

As for the non-cleaning up of coffee grounds being grounds for divorce - if I actually LIKED my husband I might consider divorce, but if I did that I wouldn't be able to make his life a living hell, so where's the fun in that? Besides, I refuse to leave for less than 5 million dollars, and he says; "I wouldn't leave a woman with that kind of money!", so we are stuck with each other.

I was just picturing the decades of old gunky sewing machine oil and airborne substances that would have accumulated in that old sewing machine over the years. I mainly see those old machines as things to be cleaned and rehabilitated for sewing purposes! What did you use to clean it all out and render it capable of making a potable beverage?

I've always found that a decent coffee must contain, at minimum:

1 shot rum.

1 good spoonful hot chocolate mix.

1 good helping of sugared creamer, preferably a decently flavored one.

Coffee purists argue that my 'coffee' constitutes a war crime. I argue that their lives are bitter and dull.

the inside has been removed and cleaned. I used the inside of a drip coffee maker and the water runs through a heat-resistant hose.   
So actually nothing  comes into contact with the inside of the sewing machine

That's OK then.

Those antique machines are not so rare that it is a travesty to do that project, although some people in sewing machine groups might not see it that way! Smiley Much better than the ones who remove the treadle machine from its base and then "upcycle" the base into a trendy shabby-chic end table or something...
