It's been an essential item in my travel kit for years now but I'd say if you're going to get one, you really need to get a Rhinowares hand grinder to go with it. They're a match made in heaven!
An Aeropress is about the only coffee 'gadget' I should add to my arsenal.
I have:
  • SAB Nobel single group espresso machine
  • SAB Mignon burr grinder
  • Breville Smart burr grinder (for the wifes decaf or bulk grinding)
  • Bruer cold drip
  • Espro P6 coffee press
One of the guys at work also has a MoccaMaster thats always got a brew on too
 

PINT of Stella. mate!

One of last years lockdowns I perfected the moka to my satisfaction whist the espresso machine was busted.

Grind is hyper critical.

Boil the water before you put it in the Moka.

Adjust the heat so it gently boils so the brew gently emerges from the spout. If it’s a blue whale spout, you’re doing it wrong Fred.

As soon as it’s boiling and you get your shots worth, off the heat and pour cold water over the base to instantly stop the boil. Otherwise you’ve over heated the brew and it’s blah.


If buying, find a stainless version.

Why the end of the show? So much good material is coming in the books.

I think the 30yr time jump between books 6+7 were going to be too hard to overcome with the current cast and it probably wouldn’t work with recasting a la ‘The Crown‘ so they’re ending it at Book 6 but it sounds like they’re bringing one or two characters forward so it will end up being a fairly different story I hope
(not that the existing one is bad but it’s always nice to be surprised!)

Done most of that! Found a good youtube video on the brewing, experimenting tomorrow.

It’s where I learnt too.


First few cups I stuffed up badly, was like instant coffee made from used pod grinds.
James Hoffman did a piece on the moka and aeropress plus frothing appliances including the little boiler thing I have. His didn't have a pressure gauge and that seemed his only real criticism as he wasn't sure when it was about to blow. Someone in the comments said they heat until it makes a hissing noise then start frothing. Oh dear.
