I make a batch every few days with my Bialetti 6 cup. I put it in a flask in the fridge and my daughter then uses it to make herself iced coffees.

I have a couple of Bialetti Express's that I use every now and then, makes a nice change from espresso.

Thanks for your replies ChilledMatt and hubcap!

The stove top / moka method is currently the only way I use to make coffee. 

I can get a few lovely and strong small cups cups of coffee this way. I stop the flow (by dipping the bottom of the pot in cold water) before all the steam / water goes through, so the result is nice and syrupy. A brilliant way to start each day, especially during lockdown.

I've no idea whether getting a proper expresso machine would give me a better result, to my taste. I've tried expresso at trendy places in Hackney which tasted interesting, but TBH not as intense and deep tasting as what I make at home. Dunno if that's because I'm an ingenu coffee-wise and can't (yet?) appreciate the subtleties of what these hipster types are creating.

Currently I use a Barista Encore for grinding, which seems to grind the beans fine enough for the stove top method. 

My envisaged further stage in my coffee journey is starting to roast beans at home. Trawling through the web looking for ideas and machines for this, I came across this forum.

Any thoughts on what I should think about or look at next? Views or suggestions would be most appreciated.

 

Noah
