Santa brought me an Aeropress. I have it at work, because the choice there is either instant Gold Blend or manky espresso from the machine. |
What it makes isn't truly espresso - no crema for starters - but it's definitely drinkable as a short shot. Lovely strong coffee, it seems to wring all the flavour out of the grounds but with absolutely no bitterness. And topped up with hot water and a dash of milk it makes a lovely Americano. It's also very quick and faff-less to use and easy to clean.
I have a stovetop pot, cafetieres, filter machine and Nespresso machine. I love the espresso from the Nespresso machine, but it beats all the rest of them hands down. I'm thinking about buying another one for home and getting rid of the filter machine and cafetieres. Would recommend it very highly indeed.
