I wanted to tackle a tricky brewing method for this videocast, and it will probably cause some debate – people saying that I am using it wrong etc etc…
I wasn’t trying to recreate espresso with the little brewer – I just wanted to find a way to use it so it made clean, sweet and tasty coffee with no bitterness or astringency. It took a while and I ended up grinding coarser than even I expected. There aren’t a lot of good brewing guides around for stove top brewers – but credit to the Stumptown one for ideas and inspiriation.
I am aware that with these videocasts I am not reinventing the wheel – I don’t claim any great originality. I just want to present methods that are easy and repeatable that have great results.
Let me know what you think:
