I have one of those automatic espresso machines if I want to make something fancy, but for day to day a moka pot makes the best coffee.

JMHO.

I'm a pour-over guy myself.  Makes even shiatty coffee taste decent.

I'd love to find one of these made out of glass, because plastic...ew.

Another "You have been making coffee wrong all your life!" thread?

It's more likely than you think about centipedes in your vagina!

Anyway, I'm drinking coffee right now, so I'm getting a kick.

I have one, it's Chemex.  I know Amazon carries them, but it isn't rare or anything.

Threw out my espresso machine on the last move.

I'm good with sticking to the ol drip. Use good coffee and no need to get fancy.

Someday I might pick up a Moka pot, but really as long as it isn't most gas station coffee or instant coffee (yes I'll use via when I'm backpacking) I'm pretty happy.

Chemex for home, Aeropress for travelling, and a three group La Marzocco FB80 at work.

EatHam: Chemex.


The thing I like about mine is that the coffee doesn't start dripping until you actually put it on the cup or the decanter.  Some kind of spring action that gives it time to steep.

Just make sure you use coffee and not the earthly remains of the Bialetti tycoon.

I have an old 6 cup Bodom vac pot. and a moka. Don't know which is the bigger cleanup mess, uncontained coffee grounds at 6am. I'll do drip that early and lots of it.

In terms of coffee, I follow the guidance of old Uncle Joe: "Quantity has a quality all of its own"

this ain't a new idea, the guy who made the super-frisbee (Aerobie) has been selling one for years:

so the vacuum pump gets to 7psi, when atmospheric pressure is 14psi?

if the top part wasn't sealed to the carafe, wouldn't it just drip through under higher pressure and not need to be sucked through?
 
2021-04-15 12:50:08 PM  
this (which is what I use to make good coffee) gets to 15 bar, which is ~217 psi

I'm not running out and buying one.  I have no snark to offer.
If you can't take coffee advice from a review in a magazine called
'Wired', well I'm not sure where you go from there.

Coffee is so much more than just coffee.

I depend on gravity and it's always worked out for me. Pour over drip brewing is the gold standard. Easy clean up too.
Suck it Wired.

The Aeropress makes fantastic coffee. Simple, easy to clean up, fast.

I like our keurig though i dislike using disposable pods cause landfills are full enough, so i use a neat little reuseable pod each morning. Minimal cleanup and a sure fire good cup of coffee every morning...used to have a pyrex vacuum coffee maker that was mom's back in the 1940's. Idiot roomie broke it 30 years ago, never seen another one like it.

Don't know what kind of luck you'll have finding a glass valve dripper, but check out the Bonavita Porcelain Immersion Dripper.

French press.  I like the bitter oils and robust body.

Huh.  Like I like my women.

Just bought an aeropress and I'm slowly getting used to it, any tips? Also bought the prismo 'espresso' attachment...

I like strong coffee but find that I'm ok with the total time from adding the grounds and plunging is good for me around 1:30. But it's all personal taste/preference.  Also, keep the parts separate after use.  don't leave the rubber plunger compressed in the main part for longevity.

Okey dokey, I'm kind of doing the whole 1'30 brewtime thing too, and finding it great, especially with hot milk

Have lusted after one of these La Pavoni manual press espresso machines since seeing it recommended at coffeegeek.com
Just haven't had the $800+ to splurge at the "local" Philly Italian specialty store.

There are 'coke' dealers who have safety deposit boxes and withdrawl grams for their own stash to make sure they aren't getting carried away. And then there is this.

So you suspect I am a caffeine addict?
Quite guilty. 😎
