Default Show us your coffee maker

ok... lets see where you make your morning coffee. Be it a moka, home machine, or commercial machine...lets see 'em.

This is my Carimali. We own three Italian Pastry Shops/ Caffes. We also have a 4 group Astoria, and a 2 group Nuova Simonelli Aurelia.

I like the Aurelia the best for making the coffee, but the Carimali is the sexiest!

We have been serving espresso and espresso drinks since 1955. I also have 2 antique machines that we no longer use, but just put out for display.

Well, thats what I do for a living... so even though its what I make myself coffee on every morning, I have a few Bialetti moka pots for espresso and a Cuisinart grind and brew at home... although they are rarely used.

In Life as in Coffee variety is the spice of life



Some french press, some Moka and variations and a super-auto as todate I have not taking the plung to artist but rather I just love a solid (not perfect) shot of espresso first thing in the morning and with this I can do it half awake with no mess.

Baby Gaggia and Gaggia MDF grinder. I guess I'm gaga for Gaggia?

I like the results I get a lot.

Ditto that. I loves me coffee and get it when I travel all over but maybe it's time to invest in some of the grand perulators.

Nice. We gotta start a thread illustrating how to do those cool designs in the microfroth. I'd be so happy if I could learn the Christmas tree before December comes around and wow our company for the holidays.

Oscar and Mazzer Mini.

Using the naked portafilter right now. I drink, Americanos, and heat the water with the steam wand. This works quite well. The machine has ridiculous steam...
