I'm not a coffee drinker, however, I have ground and made my wife's morning coffee with a French press for almost 6 years. I purchased her a Capresso Stainless Steel Burr Grinder a few years ago. Love the grinder although using it produces a crazy amount of static electricity. A couple of years ago I start experimenting and found that a 12oz bag in our ...

I have a gold reusable coffee filter I place over the drain in the sink. I pour the leftover contents of the French press into the filter. Then rinse out the press, getting the remainder of the grinds. Dump contents of gold filter into compost pile or garbage. Rinse out gold filter. Easy peasy!

Why do you stop in the middle ? Is there a drop in pressure ? does the coffee continue dripping down in the cup? Let it finish. I assume, if it is working like my machine, that the water is being re-heated for a next shot. 1st thing I would do is to clean the machine with a "descaler"; it should help with the water heating system and the pressure. If ...

So, with the addition of some whole cocoa beans, I would only assume it would be wonderful. I would only suggest this if you're aim is to a subtle flavor and not a ...

It depends on the contents of the coffee and the creamer and how they react to each other. For example some creamers are just corn syrup solids mixed with emulsifiers, and they usually mix less effectively if the coffee isn't hot enough. Or, as you mentioned, if the problem is with the brand of the coffee, then it's possible that the coffee that's giving ...

The Bean Firstly an important note, always purchase freshly roasted whole coffee beans and do your own grinding. There are roughly 800 volatile molecular components found in coffee and much of it evaporates within several days of resting and/or minutes after grinding. The Grind In coffee grinding parlance, "boulders" is used to describe chunks and "fines" ...

I agree with a lot of the previous answers, especially "try something else", but if you want to keep it Starbucks, I'll note a few things. (On the off chance it's something to do with Seattle, Caffe Vita has opened a shop in NYC. Mmmm, Theo blend.) First, I would buy direct from SB rather than from grocery stores. That stuff is more likely to sit around on ...

I did with citric based solution and it worked for while but then the machine started leaking water from inside. It works but it can degrade the hoses and valves inside the machine. It is not worth the potential damage to a $750 and up machine. Just spend the money to buy the right product for descaling. Your machine will last longer. I learned the hard way. ...
