I figured out my aeropress process problem - turn it upside down for the steep portion of the program like in this article from Serious Eats



ALSO, repurchased a french press and have been using that a lot lately. Previous versions suffered from unfortunate fates, usually involving loud noises, swearing and hazardous cleanup.

I've really been enjoying the french press a lot. Our instant hot water thing puts out "only" about 190F, so I've become convinced that controlling the steep time is more important than higher temperature. In my kitchen, anyway.

Nespresso has recently come out with a new system, the "VertuoLine".

anyone here tried it yet?
what do you think about it, compared to their "OriginalLine" machines or by itself.

i have one of their "OriginalLine" machines;
the coffee is excellent, but sometimes the same coffee grind
gives varying results.
maybe the new machines have more consistency...

Stop being so ignorant, Tom. I've been brewing coffee for decades and everything I've ever read on the subject says that your brewing water should first touch your grounds at 205 degrees F. I can provide a table with conversions for different altitudes if anyone needs it.

But, I like my coffee different than most people. I looked at the specs and everything, but they don't seem to apply to my personal situation. I live in a castle with very damp walls that greatly affect the ambient humidity of water. Can't I just enjoy my coffee the way I like it?

JB:

I've been using my Nespresso Pixie for over a year now & until it blows up, I can't see any reason to upgrade. My daughter has 1 also & we both luv the simplicity & quality of the Pixie - made in Switzerland of course.

The new model looks much more complicated with it reading bar codes on the capsules, so that seems to have a bit too much technology for me.

Just ordered 30 sleeves of capsules (Ristretto, Intensity 10, 10/sleeve) that should last me a year of nightly cappuccinos...

I drink regular coffee during the day - my own blends, freshly ground, from a variety of Costco's interesting imports.

I normally have only 1 cappuccino after supper every evening...

Funny...I was just going to mention inverting the Aeropress! When I was in Colombia that was how it was used. I never thought of using it that way before though.
