Turkish coffee.

 

It's easy to make and I don't depend on any machine (I bring my own dzezva).

 

In my opinion, Turkish brew is really strong and bitter, enough so to wake me up from the mundane world of my job.

 

At home, I prefer drip brew but at work- Turkish coffee rules.

 

I also bring some Turkish delight an my coworkers love me for it (though I hate them);)

Its a Nanopresso 'compact espresso machine.'

Put some ground coffee in, and some hot water, and use the hand pump to build pressure and then to pour the coffee. Not perfect but neat bit of kit and gives me a hit of coffee when only instant is available.

I work in Africa for 4 weeks at a time, had planned to bring my aeropress last year and leave it here. Packed up my coffee and realised when I got on plane my aeropress was still home. Picked up a bodum French press on the way so not too bad.

 

This trip the airline lost my luggage with coffee so I'm stuck with deltea or ginga instant! Not good, but it'll make me appreciate coffee more when I get home.

I don't make coffee at work but I do get one on the way to work at :nervous cough: Caffe Nero. Not many options as I work in a small town and get to work for about 7am. Tbh it's less about the coffee and more about the ritual as I know the staff, say hello to other regulars etc. Once I've had an early morning coffee I'm happy to wait until I get home for another. Water and the occasional fruit/herbal tea during the day.

I understand the ritual point well- when I used to commute a long way down the M5 I did the same in the Starbucks at Gordano Services- got to know the staff quite well. I must admit I still go back there every few months when visiting family- just to remind myself that I can definitely make better coffee now at home!

In my last job I took my Sage BE to work as I practically lived in the place, but now I just use an Espropress.

Generally filter, as I work from home, or Aeropress for an office visit or on holiday. One particular office I don't take anything as they use a Technivorm or french press dependant on the time of day.

Personally, I have been using v60, but the Aeropress popularity around the office has grown quite surprisingly in the past two years

I mostly do Aeropress at work and grind fresh, while most lap up their Kenco instant. :yuk:


Filter coffee fan = Aeropress pre-workout / v60 for leisure :coffee::good:

Doing a French press at work...

 

Getting ground coffe from Sainsburys, very different from grinding at home.

 

I have to find a solution for this...

Lots of people at my work using aeropress with supermarket preground coffee. Not sure what's the point!

 

I have found even with grinder it makes a huge difference to the taste.

 

Personally went from french press (better for sharing) aeropresslano 1, to 2, & now moccamaster one. Looks great on my desk ....but going a bit over the top with aergrind & scales I think. ....

Aeropress with Pact pre-ground. However, just purchased a Clever Dripper, and a Eureka Mignon this coming weekend so I can at least pre-grind each morning.


Rocket Apartmento and Eureka Mignon, Aeropress and Clever Dripper for work....
