Your coffee brewing method

Moka in the morning, when in hurry. Coffe usual what is on discount (currently Lavazza Super Crema). Grinded in tin for weekly use. Afternoon Hario v60 with fresh grinded specialty coffe (currently Peru/cattura), for pleasure. Melitta Molino grinder. Simple and effective.

Reviving an old thread, I’ve just bought a Nespresso machine and have been enjoying perfect latte every time, I love it! Previously I had a Tassimo but the coffee from the Nespresso is far, far better.
How is the nespresso machine holding up?
Ive seen they are on offer on Amazon (£49 for the Krups one with an offer of 100 capsules from nespresso. Ive been eyeing one up for a while and I currently use a Bialetti moka pot

We’ve had an Original for years and my wife refuses to make her coffee any other way. I use it to make espresso, but I make my big cup of coffee with a French press.

You guys are making me very jealous. I have a percolator that was bought in 1976, still works great, a couple of cafetierres that do the job and Mrs Vac uses those. I would like a very fancy machine that whirrs and pops and whooshes but I have so many cups of coffee each day that it would be too much of a faff, I have Kenco Americano Intense that is better than some coffees from some independant coffee shops.

However if you guys aree chasing a really good roaster can I suggest you try Dark Woods coffee, not too far from me, they also make some amazing bread on the site.

I have the Krups one, it’s working great I wouldn’t be without it.

How would you guys compare the Krups or Nespresso machines (the low end inexpensive ones) to a Bialetti Moka Pot in terms of quality of the coffee?

I dont wish this question to be like pulling the pin out of a grenade and throwing it......

Just like joining a shaving forum for some newbie advice....Can I ask - for an absolute rank coffee amateur, where do I start with a beginners grinder? Cant cost more than £50.....manual or electric? I simply want to experience a fresher filter coffee in a morning.

There are some reviews online of De'Longhi machines around £40 which are great, and also rubbish. Maybe the latter are from coffee snobs? Some folk suggest that a manual grinder is best for travelling? I had a similar dilemma when choosing between an EJ 89 and a Merkur 34c back in the day :facepalm:

Many thanks.

I only have experience of one grinder, so take this with a pinch of salt. I read some online reviews and bought a Hario Skerton Pro for 45quid, which seems pretty good. Been using it for 5 months. The reason I went for this one is that it has a clicky grind adjuster, so I don't need to have any judgement at all to get consistent results.

I find this guy pretty good at explaining and reviewing stuff though,

I’m using a Hario mini and have been for the last couple of years. I have a DeLonghi which was about £40, it’s OK but it’s messy and you can’t get a very fine grind with it. It’s OK for Aeropress but wouldn’t be fine enough for espresso. One advantage of a hand grinder is that it’s portable so when we go on holiday I can take it with me.

Thank you, sir. As a starter I have just ordered an Aeropress!

I have the De'Longhi and it is great! It will grind fine enough for espresso, but it needs a shim under the burr. Easy to do.
