Nothing beats that first cup of coffee in the morning, so we want to help you make sure it's the very best it can be! Here's our simple guide to the most popular ways to make coffee.
The key here is plunging patience!
Buttered toast, marmalade and birdsong make a very good accompaniment in our view.
If you have an espresso machine you'll love the steaming, extracting sounds it makes as much as the coffee!
Our tip: If the shot is flowing too fast and is tending to 'gush', your coffee is ground too coarsely. If the shot is flowing reeaaaaaalllly slowly, then the coffee is probably ground too fine. Order our ground-to-order espresso and it'll be spot on, or if you have your own grinder, adjust the settings. Grinders need pretty frequent adjusting anyway and spending time on getting the grind just right is SO worth it.
A croissant seems the right accompaniment to an espresso, don't you agree?
Lots of people love a stovetop, we do too. It's that happy hissing, steaming sound that comes before a delicious coffee that makes this way of making coffee a lovely daily ritual.
Put the radio back on and enjoy your coffee knowing you're keeping the loveliest tradition alive that started in Italy in the 1930s when Alfonso Bialetti invented the first stovetop.
Using a V60 or filter will give you a lovely clean cup of coffee with no residue in your cup.
Enjoy your coffee however you make it. And ping us an email if you have any questions at all. We love talking coffee!
