Lavazza coffee

I own a Bialitti moka express and would like to purchase Lavazza coffee to use with it.  I like strong coffee and have my own grinder.  Which would you recommend.  There's so many choices I get lost.  I don't like any flavors, just coffee.  I thought whole bean...

Fine to coarse range

Following up on the question from dalestanton-- As I tend to buy bean in large quantities, I am wondering if dialing in for espresso and resetting the screws to have that as the finest grind would open up the coarse end of the spectrum to pour overs. I have read a bit that suggests the...

Does this really work for cold extraction (over hours)?

How does it compare to the Hario cold extraction one which uses a valve to control drip rate? This seems to rely on ice melting. Not sure how well that works in practice since would be quite dependent on room temp when used.

Do you have any recommendations for a frother? I've been using the Nespresso Aeroccino for a few years, and I think it's time for something new. The machine has areas of scorched milk that I can no longer clean off, and it is very hard to clean in general. I want something that makes the...

Gaggia Titanium water not passing through

I had a problem with the error message "coffee bin empty" but found the great video telling me how to take apart the machine and clean out the tube carrying grounds.  I completed that job and it worked ... but although the beans were ground and tamped, and the coffee was being...

is it ok

is it ok to turn my profitec 700 on and off at the mains and leave the power switch on  at all times to save wear on the machines on/off switch? Would doing this this damage the computer/brain of the machine? Also is it good practise to leave the machine on all day ?

Steam wand tip

  Is this the factory steam tip on the "no burn" steam wand of the office lever?  If it's not the factory tip, is there a difference in the two?   THANKS!

My 8 year old Odea Giro Plus suddenly stopped working -- won't power on.

I've checked all the usual (cords plugged in). It worked on Monday at 7:00 am but not at 8:00 am. What do I check?
