Want/Need List

Recommended Posts

Something that Glenn mentioned in the Knock Box thread was the concept of Want and Need. If you hang around on this forum then I imagine your lists are going to be quite long.

 

So to start off this thread I would like to describe my Coffee Wants & Needs. I reserve the right to update my lists if anything good appears on yours :D.

 

Need

  • Freshly roasted quality coffee beans - A regular comodity and I am always looking for new beans to try

 

Want

  • Dual Boiler Espresso machine - It's difficult trying to keep the upgraditous beast away
  • A new steam wand - My current one is okay but I would like a better one - if I could raise a purchase order ;)
  • A nice set of cups - I would love some cups to add to the experience but my wife is very clumsy and most of our crockery is chipped. Yes I could try and guarantee I washed them each time, but that would never happen ;).
  • A portable coffee maker for work - I have a french press, but may consider something different if the result was better.
  • Milk frother - I am a sucker for lattes and it would be great if I could get somewhere close when at work
  • Mazzer Super Jolly - I don't need one at the moment but onwards and upwards ;)

Keep an eye out in the next week for a review of a machine that might just do what you're looking for....

 

Great idea for a thread. Hope to see others as well

Yes, good thread idea...

 

NEED:

 

- I need some form of mains water filtration / softening so that I can plumb my machine in...

 

WANT (where do I start?):

 

- Some good solid, thick espresso cups - I have pretty ones right now, but they're cylindrical rather than small bowls and 'just all wrong'...

- Ditto for cappuccino cups - I have some good bowls but they're thinner than I'd prefer.

- A nice stainless steel tray for my Super Jolly (at something less than the £60 that they seem to be new!) - to stop MrsShades complaining about coffee grounds on the work surface.

 

Will keep thinking and may edit this later... ;-)

 

Shades


Lots of everything: machines, grinders, roaster, beans, tampers, baskets, blah, blah

However - Too much is never enough!

I'm liking this thread...

 

Need List

 

Definitely coffee beans and my favourite are from Costa. I do, however, buy on line from time to time.

 

New cups - I'm swaying towards the ACF cappuccino cups on CoffeeHit

 

Want List

 

This list is going to change on an ongoing basis!

 

In no particular order

 

- a new machine. Either a Rancilio Silvia or a machine with a PID as standard.

- a base for the new machine and my grinder

- Alex Duetto (or something similar) - if I'm lucky


Fracino Cherub, Malhkonig Vario, Espro calibrated 58mm tamper, Espro jug, ACF cups and Costa lover.

Are they comfortable to drink from?

They certainly look different, but is it style over substance? ;)

I had a latte made with it by a friend and it was superb.....been running his cafe for over 20 years now and swears by it.......and the cups fit so good with the forefinger under the little handle.....their around £60 for 4(didn't pay that) and made to such a high standard.......:)
