Thanks, everyone. Informative and helpful. Cheers.

In other news, kudos to Andy Murray.

I can't believe the Brits finally have a new Wimbledon champion. Fantastic!
post #34068 of 54715
Yes, stress on Finally!

Good weekend for the British: the Lions win, they win Wimbledon and they lead the TdF.

I've got some friends who use Aeropress and (despite its resemblance to a large penis pump), it makes a decent cup of coffee but, as has been said, it's definitely more of a filter coffee than an espresso. Makes a very nice iced coffee in summer.

I don't know about Bialetti stove-top makers specifically but, given that they appear pretty much identical to other stove-top espresso makers, they should produce crema. An old, Sicilian friend of mine used to make a great espresso using his stove-top espresso pot.

Then, of course, there's the Greek "briki" (also used by Turks, but probably called something different there), which is a small pot which makes very thick, syrupy, murky, tasty coffee, but you've got to be careful to avoid making it too sludgy.

As for coffee if your in Sydney I would recommend Cafe Hernandez in Potts Point.
Is that the same Cafe Hernandez that used to be off Oxford St Darlo? The coffee was good there but I'd rather be at Grind.

+100 for the stove-top. I've moved to a stainless steel in the last few years. After you see the inside of the aluminium ones fur up you do rather wonder what extras you might be getting.

I have a six cup pot that will see me through the morning, or make a nice cup of joe for 2 or 3 people. It's not an expresso and nor am I expecting one. If I wanted one of those I would walk to the cafe.

Yes, go the triple! What a great set of results over the weekend for us Brits. I had a call from Dad this morning at 1.30am. He said that the last time a Brit got this far he was 4 months old and switch on the bloody TV biggrin.gif

Nabil and Rob, your thoughts? Rancilio?

Congratulations iSurg. I, too, celebrated my first wedding anniversary this weekend with a great wee trip away to Daylesford. We are thinking of getting a piece of art for our anniversary present to ourselves (in keeping with paper for first wedding anniversary).

Not sure I will take suggestions on specific artworks here, though maybe if anyone has any galleries in Melbourne they might recommend...there seems to be some nice stuff at that big place on St Kilda Road at the moment...wonder how much one of those lily paintings would set me back...

PS Oli, if you really want to change your name, I am happy to support, though other members do make good points, so consider them first.

PPS I never got around to doing a full post but, in summary, I was extremely impressed with the packaging and presentation of my Mr Porter goods.
