De'Longhi machines should all be able to use the ese pods if you're interested, great job guys
Man Daylight Saving time has got me making another press of fresh ground Brekky blend.
I petition we abolish this antiquated seasonal time change.
Thanks and you are correct sir. I now have bought a 40 Pod ESE Variety Pack for $29.95. Expensive yes even for ESE but I just wanted to check this option out, regardless ESE Pods are a nice Plan B option, just too expensive to use all the time. Plan A is to do my own thing. Question: I have a pound of "Petes" coffee I just purchased pre-ground for auto-drip, do I need to grind more for use in the Delonghi Expresso Machine? Thanks.
Give it a try as-is, fill a basket and see if it extracts dark enough for your taste.
edit: Make sure you tamp it good
If anyone wants to make a truly badass pot of coffee, try one of these machines!
Anyone else using this somewhat-overpriced guy to make micro-foam?
Couldn't think of drinking anything worse, coffee and tea.
And cannot comprehend the need for a dose of caffeine to be able to function in the morning.
The only problem with this is that I am constantly looking for highly flavoured drinks.
Root beer or the black grape and cherry Kool Aid type of thing.
Had some good organic ginger beer the other day, really nice burn.
All well and good as a kid with access to a PX. Trying to find a tin of A&W in the UK now is difficult enough. Try doing it in the 90's. Oh and it's two bucks a tin.
Tins which get cut up for segmented stems waste not want not.
I know the guy who runs this place
Have you tried Stoney Ginger Beer? It’s a Coca Cola product and it is produced throughout Africa. I’ve had the South African version which is overly sweet with a strong ginger flavor. Might be worth starting another thread for interesting drinks, etc.
No, never heard of it. Had Bundaberg Root beer, proper brewed variety from Oz.
Fuk Coca Cola, fukers are willing to load venidng machines in 3rd world countries with fizzy sugar causing obesity and diabetes problems all over the place.
Horrified to see a little baby coming off the tit only to get a soft drink stuck in it's mouth.
Can't blame the locals the water isn't good enough to drink.
There is also a coffee warehouse in Lincoln which fills the town with the smell off the roasters
Well I made my first Cappuccino and it tasted real good. I packed a double into system scoop and ran it thru three times( Yes it weakens the expresso, but to who's taste, kinda like having a Jack Daniels with Coke instead of a straight shot). I already had the milk froth(Lots of foam) ready(per book info) and pored some milk slowly and then I spooned on the foam. Finally I sprinkled some 50% Cacao Coco Powder(with sugar included) and wahlah, I have a chocolate cream cappuccino, a "Triple C". Since I'm a FNG at this all I can go by is taste and visual, course I still have to work on my technique and skills, but so far I am very happy with my Delonghi Cafe Expresso Machine. I will get my ESE Pods pretty soon and I know they are single not double but I still may run them three times thru for more expresso but a weakened version. Hey it's fun to experiment. Sayonara.
Coffee also affects the endocannabinoid system.
@OldNewbie funny you just posted this I was just reading this article,
Well y'all gettin' into some deep stuff here, but you can "Bet your bottom dollar" that the "Pineal Gland"(Third Eye) has something to do with it as it controls light and dark sleep cycle and moods. Kowabunga Dudes!
Oh yeah, made my fourth cup of cappuccino today(after three previous days of B results) and it came out an A+! First a double scoop of Pete's "Uzura African Blend"(ran expresso 3 times)which I blended with 1/2 oz of Torani's "Toasted Marshmellow" Syrup and a teaspoon of sugar. Next I frothed the 2% Milk perfectly. Poured some milk maybe 2 ozs. then I spooned a whole lot of froth on top and wahlah you have a "Toasted Marshmellow Cappuccino"...mmmmmm...good. While sipping I smoked some top shelf Sativa bud with a new "BudBomb" I bought from Spain. Just a little variety as I still like those 86% THC Sativa "Sour Diesel" cartridges the best. Soon I'll top off my morning with a couple of Eggo "Buttermilk" waffles smothered in butter, and topped off with real hot "Mrs. Butterwoth's" Syrup, hot damn! Sayonara.
