New macchinetta after I ruined last one by leaving on ring.
@johnjohnston I love those little pots. I should go back to using one instead of the Nespresso…
@johnjohnston and a real Bialetti too. this is always my favorite way to make coffee. but i admit i’ve become lazy recently and given in to a drip machine. i really should up my game.
@johnjohnston I had a 6 cup, but seeing as how it’s really only me that drinks coffee post-morning, I bought the wee one cup. It’s the one I use the most – mentioned it recently Cassinato.micro.blog/2018/06/1… What’s your coffee of choice?
@Cassinato I use a 3 cup for coffee for my wife and myself add a tiny bit of boiling water and drop of cold milk. Not fussy buy illy or Taylor Italian beans most of the time. Need to get a 1 cup for solo, use aeropress for that at the moment.
@isaiah Bialetti seem to have the best seals less splutter from the waist. @macgenie I like the ritual. Stovetop is the micro.blog of coffee makers perhaps?
@johnjohnston agreed. i always bought the cheap stuff when i was in college. i thought lasting a year and failing seals was the norm.
i have a Bialetti too. it’s only a few bucks more. totally worth buying name brand in this case.
@johnjohnston I like the simplicity of it: 🔥💧☕️
@johnjohnston I’ve had an Aeropress for about 6 years – good, but a bit fiddly. Don’t really use it now. Moka pot is king, wouldn’t use anything else now. Haven’t tried grinding beans yet – probably get to it at some point.
@Cassinato not sure if my taste buds notice much difference but adds to the process
@johnjohnston Ha! Think my equivalent is standing in Tesco deciding which type of Lavazza to buy. Crema e Gusto is my current favourite… I’d be lying if I said the offers never had an effect. Haven’t tried Illy yet, bit pricey. Not that much of a connoisseur.
@Cassinato every so often illy gets discounted;-) And the tins are nice. No connoisseur myself. Like Italian rather than the more modern espresso but that is about it.
@johnjohnston I can only afford one costly pastime (all things music) so will keep an eye out for offers on Illy. One day…
