Another day, another coffee pot: or so it seems, at my house. SOMEbody keeps acquiring new & novel ways to brew a cuppa joe. Let’s see, we’re up to 8 or 9 coffee devices, including the newest, a stainless steel Bialetti Moka pot (since the Bodum Santos vaccuum pot shattered recently, I couldn’t complain too much about new coffee gear). I’m perfectly happy with the espresso from the Breville machine, but for some reason, Mr. Bouillie is still chasing the perfect cup.
(He would like me to add that he has fewer coffee pots than I have Le Creuset pots. I argue that LC aren’t single purpose devices, so it’s not a valid comparison.)
Anyway, the Moka pot makes a nice cup of coffee: it’s thick, but clean. No crema, but it produces coffee with sufficient body to stand up to condensed milk.
