Bialetti ME-3  Coffee Maker by Bialetti
5.0 out of 5 stars Love my coffee, 19 July 2013
If you are addicted to a daily fix of strong coffee you can't do better than this little coffee maker, I bought another make which was identical in every way except for the results, cannot understand why but the Bialetti delivers other makes do not. Going to experiment with iced coffee now! Oh incidentally I bought a 1 cup model but it is not big enough, for one person you need at least a 3 cup model, larger if you are making for more than one person and I use coffee which I buy from my favourite coffee shop

Will try again, but I have made better bread in the bread machine and my own recipe scones are usually beautiful to look at… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars not a pig in sight, 5 May 2013
This is the third of the Terry Rankin books I've read and I really like the way the end of one leads you into the beginning of the next. The stories are easy to read (even late at night) and although lively don't have the blood and guts content to keep you from sleeping. Haven't finished this one yet but I am looking forward to the next one already
