The coffee making kit I have to hand so far is:

DeLonghi Nesspresso 'Latissima Touch' pod coffee machine (for which I have successfully made my own pods for).

A DeLonghi burr grinder.

For £50 I then I bought a badly scaled and broken second hand Gaggia 'Classic Coffee' (cira 1999), a lucky FaceBay find which I tore down, cleaned and repaired (post coming soon).

Thus far I have managed to:

  a) Make some (espresso?) coffee using pre-ground Lavazza: lovely looking crema which looked like a pint of freshly pulled Guiness.

  b) Steamed some milk.

  Poured a) in b) - bloody lovely cup of coffee! Blew my head off though. No, I don't know what I'm doing!!!!


  Made some coffee for my wife using the nesspresso machine using my own pods which she loved. (Box ticked there then!).

  Ground some bloody awful tasting coffee beans from Aldi (Bellarom Italian Blend).
