Of course the ground coffee that you use is crucial...I'm half Italian so maybe I'm slightly biased, I use Lavazza Rossa and always get wonderful coffee with tantalising aromas.
I used to have a Moka years ago ,I have to say that I quite like the aroma,I also liked to watch the rich brown coffee percolating through the top of the pipe.
I then bought a Krups espresso,which was a two-cup model,it was good,but,I don't really like to spend too much time on the coffee-making ritual.
I like to keep thing's simple,which is why the Moka is good on a gas stove,not so good on electric,though,come to think of it,I think you can buy an electric coffee pot type of coffee maker.
I really appreciate good coffee though,as Laura says,the coffee that you use is crucial,I also love all things Italian,hence my image of Gigliola Cinquetti,I love her to bits,just like a good coffee in the morning,Gigliola really perks me up with her songs & I think she is a la bella .
I think there is some evidence that as we get older,coffee drinking staves of the effects of diseases like Alzheimers,but then we coffee drinkers know what is good for us anyway.
Krups XN2120 Essenza Eco Nespresso Machine
Great coffee maker.
RIP OFF coffee delivery charges. Binned my machine on the strength of it, So also a very expensive cup of coffee in the end.
My advice dont buy a machine from a shop that you cannot purchase the actual coffe from as well,
you are in effect asking to get ripped off
I have the Dualit espressivo from John Lewis and am delighted with the results.
We keep trying the different kinds of coffees - there are so many
Going to try the Coffee with Whisky as placed in Ebay!! I wonder!
