FYI the unit I received is brownish as all 3 others I purchased were, not gray as stated in the description. I've sen the gray ones before at a coffee stand at a local farmers market so I know the difference.
This device makes great coffee. I does use a bit more coffee than an espresso, but the money saved on the purchase makes up for it. Of course, it's much better if you use high quality, fresh coffee.
Here are a few tips I can share:
- You may use a paper filter for more than one cup. I typically make 2 cups with each.
- When you pour the water, it may start to drip a bit in the cup, something you want to avoid if you want the water to remain in contact with the coffee to get some taste. To avoid it, place the "press" cylinder on top right away. The air chamber on top will prevent the water going down, because of a succion effect.
- Press your coffee until your start hearing bubbles or seing pitting in the coffee grounds.
- To clean, remove the bottom and press directly in the garbage bin.
- If you have a boiler on which you can select temperature, I find 85 C to be a great temperature.
You'll use about twice as much ground coffee as you're used to for either espresso or drip, but you won't care. The quality of the coffee it produces really is that good. It's smooth, full and rich, but almost entirely without bitterness.
The secret, as far as I can tell, is that by using a very fine grind (same as for an espresso machine) and only soaking the grounds for 30 seconds, you pull out all the 'good stuff' before the bitter parts of the coffee get as chance to dissolve. Personally, I like a touch of bitterness in my coffee, so i'll sometimes wait up to a minute to push the water through. You can experiment until you find the best brew for you.
The instructions recommend filling with about two ounces of water, then plunging that through and topping up your cup with hot water. Personally, I fill the cylinder up to the top with hot (not quite boiling) water, and push the whole lot through. I think it tastes better that way, but mostly it's just one less step.
There won't be crema. If you're an espresso geek like me you might have a hard time with that - at first. I stopped caring pretty quickly.
Use fresh ground coffee. You really get the most out of the grounds, so the difference between fresh ground and pre-ground is more noticeable than if you'd used a traditional method.
Another tip: the filters last forever! Ok, that's an exaggeration, but not by much. Feeling experimental, I decided to keep washing and reusing the same filters over and over.Read more ›
