View Full Version : Rancilio Rocky Coffee Grinder

05-03-2011, 01:02 PM
My Capresso Team GS broke, so I needed a new coffee pot and grinder. I ordered the the Rocky first and I'm now looking at what to do next. I'm probably going to buy a Bialetti Moka Express and a French Press, but my wife says I need to get another drip machine. We have 3 coffee drinkers in the house and we all get up and leave over a 2 hour period in the morning. A drip makes sense for keeping the coffee warm, but do I have any other options?

I'm sorry but it would take .........well I dont know what it would take to make me ever go back to a Drip. I bring my Press anywhere I go that I'm going to make coffee; work, motels, camping etc.
I understand the amount of coffee drinkers you have, and wanting to keep it warm, but thats one of the things I dont like either, is coffee that has been heating (burning) on the warmer for an hour (or more).
Fresh is where its at and the 10 minutes it takes from beginning to end in a press is worth it for me.

After reading the French press thread, I'm looking at the Bodum 8 and 12 cup double insulated glass presses thinking that might be the answer to keeping the coffee warm.

How about an Airpot? You could make enough coffee for everyone and toss it in there. Coffee doesn't get burned and you don't need to make coffee more than once.

We have a Zojirushi Air Pot and it usually keeps coffee warm for at least 12+ hours.

Thermas or multiple Thermas

Nothing wrong with drip coffee when it is brewed at the proper temp at the proper time frame for the grind size.
