I drink quite a lot of coffee  and like it strong and black. I am now thinking of getting a machine.

Any recommendations?

Nespresso basic machine (Inissia) plus an Aerolatte (electric mini-whisk for about £10).

Using this (with a double shot of Ristretto pods) I can make the best café con leche/meia de leite I have had outside Spain or Portugal.

Not for me thanks. Not with cow juice  or any form of sweetener.

Had one of these once but turned out to be very expensive to run.

In a small bar I used to go to often they would just shovel in a couple of heaped spoons of ground coffee in a glass, pour boiling water in and let it settle for a minute or two.

Best cup of coffee around.

:)

These days I just use a small one cup cafetiere rather than get a last mouthfull of the coffee grounds.

If you don't mind grounds in your cup, Greek/Turkish/Cypriot coffee is to die for!

A MACHINE...:angry::laugh:

I love coffee, and need a good Italian coffee to start my day off. I say Italian because my favourite mornings start with a visit to Luna Rossa at the harbour where I know them and the regulars. At home, I would never use anything except perhaps an on-the-hob Expresso coffee-maker, which my living-in-Sicily brother swears by, or a simple plunger cafetiere. In fact, BondandBigM probably has the right idea, and although I myself do use plain old Lyons coffee bags, I have no problem with just pouring hot water on the coffee and then straining out the grouts when you drink it.

As a matter of interest, has anyone heard of the cold-coffee method? I have heard that this makes lovely coffee and you can keep it for a while in the fridge, using it when needed.

Good call, jogged my increasingly dreadful memory !!!

:huh:

An old aunt of mine had an old steel coffee percolator which she used on the stove, water in the bottom half ground coffee in the top ???

I have one of these, because I like strong black coffee, not this designer poncy 'Double-decaff-extra-dicksplash-with-a-cream-cheese-float' pish.

I make standard filter coffee or standard espresso

I went for a modern min purely because I love Lavazza coffee and that is what it takes. If you are getting a coffee machine,  I'd recommend getting an ex display model.  You get them loads and loads cheaper and it's unlikely they have been switched on before,  let alone used

So Roger, I won't be round to your's then. I thought three-in-one was a sort of oil,,,:laugh:

I also like Lavazza coffee, Muddy, but surely you can buy the ground Lavazza as is where you are, or at least the beans, so that you can make your own delicioso Italian coffee.:)

Have you thought about getting one of these. Very fast, easy to use and clean.

I wanted a machine before but certainly not for only black coffee.

When I go into my kitchen I recognize my vintage coffee maker right away, because it hasn't been modified extensively over the years.

I wonder if most of these machines last more than two weeks before being consigned to 'that' cupboard that houses all the other paraphernalia that have become kitchen 'ornaments'....the 'Nutri Bullet'...(WTF?), the sandwich toaster, the blender, the electric carving knife, the water heater, the juicer...etc...etc, that you thought were a good idea, and you revert to the good old jar of Nescafé Gold Blend and a kettle?:hmmm9uh::laugh:
