I have one. Very simple and reliable. But for small batch brewing I have been happily converted to the Aeropress
That was basically my evolution also: French Press to Pour Over to AeropressTested has some good coffee content. That is where I first discovered the Aeropress. I was a pourover convert for a few years before trying the Aeropress.
I have not owned a coffee maker or used a French press for a number of years. I have a Aeropress in my tool box at work, one in my pack, and one in the pantry, to me it is the best thing since the electric kettle.
25 years ago I spent a summer traveling Italy, Spain, France, and Portugal. Italians introduced me to the Italian Bialetti (aka Moka Pot). Purchased one when I got home (still have it). Love this method of making coffee. Over the years I've dabbled in many other coffee makers but always come back to my trusty Moka Pot.I enjoy the simple Italian Bialetti system, which is good for travelling and home use. I use it for years now and I do not know anything that sustainable and reliable. A italian friend of mine uses his one for 25 years now and it still works, without maintenance.
Does someone use something of this kind ?
I have this fascination for simple, inexpensive , durable, and pleasurable devices or things. Added bonus if some type of ritual is built in to using those devices or things.Yes. This is also my favorite coffee maker. I can order exactly what kind of coffee mix I want to the coffee merchant. It is very flexible, never breaks down, and makes a perfect decoration
