One thing I do appreciate about the Aeropress vs the cafetiere is that I no longer end up with a load of coffee sludge in the bottom of my mug.
I have always wondered if the sludge over-extracts and just adds some stewed coffee flavour.
irritating coffee faff
If I get a Porlex, do I want a Mini or a Tall?
I’ve got both, the big one is better if you’re grinding more than two shots. Also, not sure why but the big one is easier to turn - seems to require less effort.
I’ll go large then, I think.
I nearly did the same with my delonghi when I saw your post
I’ve asked for one for my biffday.
I’ll stick my DeLonghi electric grinder on the tat bazaar when I get it.
Might be worth keeping if you have to make coffee for a few people. Porlex is a ballache if you have to grind for more than a couple of people.
I get around this problem by only offering visitors instant coffee. And not having many visitors.
I feel the need to make an electric drill adaptor.
Make me one! I’ve looked for the right pentagon thing and never found one!
Mine isn’t a pentagon thing because it’s new.
…if you served better coffee…
Like I want to change it
I’ll buy it for work
They’ve gotten used used to a cafetiere now and I think it might be time to introduce freshly ground beans
If he served better coffee, twice a year a collection of right characters would turn up at his house and refuse to leave until they were fed, watered and pissed.
Where did you get that idea?
I’m planning a bake off in October, but don’t expect coffee unless you grind it yourself!
