Makes more sense, thanks. I thought you referred to the measure of "one cup".

Interesting info about the moka pot. I understand it's probably not the best method, but it tastes like a step up from a French Press to me. I'll have to look into an entry level machine at some point...

No way, french press imo is the best brewed coffee, then some sort of pourover. Nothing beats a grail espresso shot though.

i like both the stovetop mokka and the french press, i don't think i'd say either is superior but both are good and distinct from one another. turkish/greek/arabic method is my favorite because of the extra flavors but it's not an every morning thing of course. more for enjoying the taste

the turkish greek arabic method I don't even think should be compared to brewing methods we are talking about. When you add spices and such to something you are changing it completely. Different drink. It is like comparing a Frapaccino to French Press. Stripped down to just the coffee portion of it, it is kind of shitty burnt grounds coffee. That is why it needs all of that extra stuff.

er...i don;t disagree they are very different, but that's why i also made the distinction that it's not an every day thing. but if you're drinking burnt grounds then i don't know who made it for you but i grind espresso beans right before use and they are subjected to boiling water for maybe 30 seconds, not really burning anything. and all that extra stuff = sugar and a few cardamom seeds , not much different than sugar + dash of milk...

To my taste buds grounds in boiling water for 30 seconds tastes burnt.

to your taste buds starbucks is acceptable and gas station coffee is some base level so i guess we should agree to disagree tongue.gif

It's not acceptable, it is just better that bodega coffee.

I think it's more the novelty of making my own espresso, as opposed to regular coffee (slightly burnt though it might be). Unfortunately, my wife doesn't share the sentiment. Espresso makes her bounce2.gif and she doesn't know how to make coffee. Oh well....

See last page. I like the Silvia a lot so far. Easy to handle. Good steam power for one (or two) cappuccos. If you're interested in preparing your own espresso (and I can tell you it's 1) more fun and 2) much tastier than nespresso), it's a good way to start. The grinder (Mahlkönig/Baratza Vario Home v2) is great. Rather mid-end than low-end (375€ as opposed to 130€ for a Graef CM80), but I got the Silvia v3 and Vario v2 in a bundle for 650€ (pretty good offer: the Silvia normally costs 475€, the Vario 350€ -> 825€). Will sell my Nespresso in the next couple of days.
