Now, for the quality of the espresso it makes. I must admit I was disappointed with this at first - I had been used to a high pressure espresso machine which made thick creamy espresso. At first when using this maker I followed the instructions exactly - not 'tamping down' the coffee and not grinding it too fine. This made a fairly weak espresso. In fact the 6 cup amount made me two good longish coffees, still an improvement in taste over my cafetiere coffee.
To achieve a better espresso I got advice from my Italian and Greek friends. They grew up with these machines, and told me to grind the coffee slightly finer than instructed, and to tamp it down gently (not too hard or you block the holes.) This made me the rich espresso I wanted.
Lastly, about these coffee makers, take them off the heat a little before all the water in the bottom evaporates (also a knack to learn when this is!) You avoid the bitter-end-coffee, and you make sure you're not going to leave the machine to dry out over the heat and possibly get damaged.
You may be interested in quantity - everyone's idea of 'cup' is different. I imagine the 'cup' here is a very short espresso as I usually get about 4 espresso measures out, i.e. 2 double espresso. If I'm using it to make longer coffee, it make me two mugs. It'd be a perfect size if there were two coffee drinkers in your house. For one (like me) it leaves spare for the next day.Read more ›
For reasons I can't recall, it made its way to the kitchen gadget graveyard at the back of a cupboard & we used a cafetiere, but I was recently re-introduced to the machine - and I'm glad I was !
I therefore bought this new one, mostly for making one cup of "Americano" style coffee - I fill the reservoir with water, half fill the coffee compartment, then when brewed add hot water & cold milk, which makes the perfect strength for me in a medium sized mug (using Lavazza Qualita ORO Coffee). This size pot will also make enough coffee as described for three people at the same strength if the coffee compartment is full.
Excellent well made pot.
When I finally remembered and realised there was an absence of 'shoogling' I went to investigate.
I'd forgotten to put any water in the machine before putting it on the stove!
The whole machine was not only red hot, it was almost in meltdown. Fully expecting to have completely ruined my pot, after letting it cool down, I had a look. Apart from a basketful of blackened coffee grounds and a perished seal, the pot was completely undamaged. Not a warp, not a crack, not a single iota of damage.
This pot had evidently survived some serious abuse and come through unscathed.
Not something I'd recommend people to try, but it's an example of how well made and robust this coffee maker is. Shame the same thing can't be said about this writer.
The basic components are fairly simple, but the fit is perfect. There’s a thick base water reservoir, where the bottom of the pot makes contact with your heat source (I’ve tried this with both a gas and halogen electric hob), the coffee basket (slots into top of the reservoir), the ‘filter’ (which is held neatly inside the top of the pot, and finally the top of the pot (which captures the most important part… The black espresso coffee.
Yes, no moving parts, no switches (there is a simple pressure valve in the base, just in case), just a pot that should last for a very long time.
With a little bit of practice, and a few words of advice, I’m now consistently making coffee just the way that I like it.
It couldn’t be much simpler. Fill the base with water, fill the coffee basket with the desired grind, assemble (screw together the top and the base), then pop onto a steady low heat.
Using a slightly finer grind, than recommended in the instructions; I’ve been tampering down ‘two scoops’ of coffee and placing onto a low heat. The trick is not to try and heat the pot too rapidly, as this will not do the flavour of the coffee any favours.
If you’re using a gas hob, then the Bialetti diffuser’s a great little item, as this helps to prevents the lames licking the sides of the pot and creates a more even spread of heat.Read more ›
