Isn't the Bodum one made in Portugal? Are you wanting a different brand?

Sono Americano, per favore scusare il mio Italiano ma questo tema e vicino al mio cuore.

Non hai detto dove lei abita. C'è buon caffè a San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, e New York (forse Chicago, ma non so personalmente). In altre parti del paese, sia un disastro veramente. Dopo Starbucks c'è più o meno da niente. Non abbiamo la cultura di caffè al fuori delle città. È una vergogna. (Tra parentesi Starbucks hanno sempre espresso, anche se non lo elenchino nel loro menu.)

Due marche che mi piacono sono Blue Bottle e Stumptown Roasters entrambe di quale è possibile ordinare sul Internet. Naturalmente senza assagiarli ciò è una problema diversa. Però comincerei con Blue Bottle - Giant Steps. Stumptown hanno forse troppe scelte.

Per fare il caffè, mi piace una Melitta con filtro #2 o una pressa francese (Bodum). Qui è possibile trovare una Melitta nel tanti supermercati. Secondo me, il metodo e la macchina di caffè americano di base entrambe fanno schifo. Lei potrebbe anche ordinare una Bialetti da Amazon.com.

Detto questo, ho una macchina espresso da Illy a casa e anche una disposizione permanente con loro a spedirmi nuovi caffè ogni mese. Si funziona bene per me ma non è specialmente economico.

I honestly don't see a better alternative than a french press. It might be a tad bit more clunky but this is at the cost of being able to brew more than one cup at a time.

A clever could work as well, if you're into pourovers.

u/tacosarentgreen · 5 pointsr/Coffee

Simple enough. A french press and any ol' electric kettle from Amazon should do just fine. I'd get this french press. You can also get a Hario mini mill grinder if you're willing to hand grind your own coffee. Follow this guide to brew coffee in it. You can make 32oz of coffee in 4-5 minutes.

u/cjeby3 · 4 pointsr/santashelpers

You could definitely go the keurig or mr. Coffee route, there should be some decent sales coming up on those soon.

Be aware that the keurig systems have caught some flack for the amount of waste that they produce. Each individual serving cup can't be recycled, and if you get one of the newest keurigs, they have a special chip in the cup that has to be used for the system to actually brew. So no more knock off K-cups.

My girlfriend also loves coffee and tea. In the past I have given her a french press to make coffee, which is going to be cheaper than a keurig and makes a much better tasting cup of coffee. It's much more hands on than just hitting a button too. This is the one I got her. http://www.amazon.com/Bodum-Chambord-Coffee-Press-demitasse/dp/B00008XEWG. You can probably find a cheaper one if you do some digging online. This and a fresh bag of coffee would make a great gift. Extra points if you go whole bean coffee and get her a grinder too.

As for tea, if you are around a Teavana, this little guy is awesome. http://www.teavana.com/tea-products/tea-makers-infusers/p/teavana-red-perfectea-maker. You pour water and your tea into it, let it infuse, and then you put that on top of your mug and a pressure switch allows the tea to filter out the bottom without mess or tea fibers floating through. This is on sale right now and paired with a nice bag of loose tea would be a good route to go! Hope this is helpful! r/coffee and r/tea are great places to learn more!

Bodum French Press and a Hario Buono kettle are probably enough to get you started. French press will be a bit more forgiving when it comes to brewing and you can probably keep your current grinder until you decide if you like it. Just make sure to try and keep the grind fairly coarse. Might take some playing around with. Cheers!

u/himynamesjeremy · 3 pointsr/Coffee

I have the Bodum 8 Cup French Press here

u/PabloSanchez_WARking · 3 pointsr/barstoolsports

Get a French press or a moka pot if you want espresso. Both super easy and take minimal counter/cupboard space and they make coffee as good if not better than a machine.


Keurigs are BAD and anyone who says otherwise is a poor.

u/Bahamut966 · 3 pointsr/Authentic_Vaping

No problem! A lot of places like Teavana tend to take people for a ride for "meh" tea hardware, the gear I use for brewing at home is just these things:

  • Electric Kettle

  • French Press

  • Tea Tins

  • A metal tea spoon (harder to find on Amazon, a lot of brick and mortar places probably have them for a buck or two).

    That's all you really need to get started making damn good cups of tea! I don't go for anything fancy like PID controlled kettles or anything, if it tastes too bitter, take the water off the kettle earlier or let it sit after it shuts itself off for a few seconds, but most everything can handle boiling fine.
u/exmo_therapy · 3 pointsr/exmormon

Resources I used: /r/coffee and youtube (I particularly like the sumpcoffee channel).

Conclusions and setup I arrived at:

  • Bodum french press - 8 cups is misleading because each cup is actually measured at 4oz, not 8. This is pretty good for one person. I found mine on CL for $15, you can probably find an equally good deal in your area. Especially now, post gift season.

  • Hario Mini Mill - freshly ground coffee is amazing. I answered your post about using pre-ground coffee, so I won't repeat myself. Also consider the fact that as coffee is exposed to air it deteriorates. That's why pre-ground coffee is so derided by coffee community (more surface area exposed -> faster deterioration), and why people recommend you look at "roasted on" dates.

  • A medium roast. For me, these have the perfect combination of fruity and chocolatey. I love the complexity, and I think that Private Selection whole beans (Kroger brand) are a good balance of affordable and tasty. The yirgacheffe beans are a good place to start.

  • Next on the list of things to get (for me) is a scale. It's not a neccessity, but it makes certain things easier (measuring out can be tedious).

  • This is a good article that will teach you a few things

    Also, in regards to cleaning the french press. You don't want to dump the grounds into the sink because it can cause clogging. This is what I do - rinse off the metal filter immediately after brewing. Some grounds will be stuck to it, but this shouldn't be a problem. Then, I just leave the glass beaker out on the counter to dry out. That night or next morning the grounds are mostly dry, I dump them into the trash and rinse out the glass beaker with hot water.

u/BralonMando · 3 pointsr/Coffee

Congratulations on becoming a free thinker and embracing everything that life has to offer! Never stop questioning everything! It's all about the beans, it's basically impossible to make good coffee without using freshly ground and good quality beans that have been recently roasted (i.e. not sat on a shelf for months).

You will need 3 things to start making good coffee.

  1. A decent grinder, nothing fancy needed if you're just going to use a french press, but try and avoid ones that use blades, and go for a nice burr grinder, like this one.
  2. a French press
  3. Some nice beans, have a look online for a local roaster in your area and give them your support/love/money!.

    That's pretty much it, just coarsely grind the coffee, put it in the press with water just slightly off the boil, wait a few mins depending on how strong you like it, press down and serve delicious coffee!
u/MechAegis · 2 pointsr/comics

I have a Bodum French Press. I don't think I know how to make coffee. It all seems to taste the same to me. Is there like water to coffee quantity measurement guide I can follow?

u/6h0zt · 2 pointsr/amazone

Does it populate for specific products or comparable products? For instance, let's say I'm searching for a french press. Will I only be priced matched for this specific product, or will I be alerted for other deals?

u/Tyzan · 2 pointsr/Coffee

I don't know if this would work in Brazil, but where I live I frequently see french presses in thrift shops. I think people get them as gifts and don't know how to use them or something. I've always had good luck with the basic bodum french press. Or if you want to get fancier, the bodum chambord is the same but looks a little nicer. I've had some no name ones too but there's really no difference in taste

u/UrdnotChivay · 2 pointsr/Coffee

I bought this one and it definitely costs more, but it's pretty big and I like it quite a bit

Boil water on the stove and switch to a French press. You'll never want go back to drip coffee.

Hey, could you edit those Amazon links down? For example, the first one could simply be:

At least one of the links up there contains an affiliate tag as well.

u/That_Mad_Hatter · 1 pointr/Coffee

Hey so I'm new and have been lurking around for a few days. I've been looking for something to get for my dad's birthday and after reading the wikis and guides, can someone please tell me if this would be considered a good set?

Links: Beans

French Press

Grinder

Any help would be really great.

edit: I'm also thinking of just getting an aeropress instead of the cafetiere, would that be a good idea?

u/woflmao · 1 pointr/Coffee

Even though I am a pretentious asshole, I'll try not to be one. If you're on a tight budget I would suggest a hand blender like the kyocera http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B003S9XF7K?pc_redir=1407223857&robot_redir=1 (I'm on alien blue or else I'd link that shit to words) and if you want to try a press pot, bodum makes great cheap ones http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00008XEWG?pc_redir=1407268458&robot_redir=1. Hope that helps :D

u/RelativityCoffee · 1 pointr/Coffee

I think the two most important questions are: what are some coffees that you've had and like? What sort of work are you willing to put into it?

My personal recommendation would be to get a Baratza Encore grinder, a digital scale, a gooseneck kettle of some sort, a Chemex, and a French Press. All that should easily fit within your budget. And of all the accessories I have, on 90% of the days I don't use anything other than those. Well, and some coffee beans.

But that will take some work -- measuring, grinding, pouring, waiting, more pouring. It will make much better coffee than any automated machine, but maybe you don't care that much and it sounds like too much work. In that case, the Technivorm Moccamaster and Bonvavita 1900 TS are good options for automatic drip machines.

EDTIT: Sorry, I missed "automatic" in the text. I still don't think that will give you the best coffee, but if you're set on it, ignore everything I said except the Technivorm and Bonavita.

u/j1mdan1els · 1 pointr/Coffee

When it comes to this type of machine there is good, cheap and convenient. You can only pick two of those adjectives.

Keurigs definitely fall into the category of cheap and convenient. I don't mean to sound derogatory or mean, but there's no respect for them here at all.

That said, it does sound like something is off with your machine. Looking at the review, on switching on you should hear a pump activate; the heating light should come on; the water should heat prior to the selection buttons turning blue. There seems to be no control for the water temperature, if it's not heating, then you have a fault.

There is a keurig sub on here that might give you some more advice.

Edit to add: if you really want to treat your mother, get her one of these: http://www.amazon.com/Baratza-Encore-Conical-Coffee-Grinder/dp/B007F183LK/ref=sr_1_20?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1425737494&sr=1-20&keywords=coffee+grinder
and one of these: http://www.amazon.com/Bodum-Chambord-French-Coffee-Chrome/dp/B00008XEWG/ref=sr_1_5?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1425737583&sr=1-5&keywords=french+press

u/thecal714 · 1 pointr/sysadmin

I'm currently a fan of Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf's French Roast. I picked up a small bag at the grocery store, enjoyed it, then stumbled across the much larger bag at Costco.

It seems to be a hit with others, as well, as it's the only coffee I've made for people that they asked about what it was.

I've made it in both drip and french press. I'm still getting the hang of my french press, so the drip is more consistent, but both are good.

u/Picrophile · 1 pointr/cigars

Well this is gonna get kinda long and will only scratch the surface but I'll break down the pros and cons of some of the most popular entry-level gear in as un-confusing of a way as I can. First up, let's look at grinders.

First off, you want a burr grinder, particularly a conical burr grinder because those blender-y blade grinders they sell at wal-mart for $5 don't get any kind of a consistent grind. Varying sizes in a grind means varying levels of extraction in the cup and that means off flavors. Because burr grinders are more expensive, hand crank conical burr grinders are commonly recommended to beginners because of their lower price point compared to similar quality electrics. They're cheap and work well but do have some drawbacks beyond the extra effort involved in grinding. First, most of them don't have actual grind settings and you adjust the grind size by twisting a wheel until it looks as fine/coarse as you want it to. If you use different brew methods and switch grind size a lot, this can be a bit of a pain. Second, most hand grinders aren't ideal for french press because of the way the burrs are stabilized; they'll give fantastic fine/medium grinds but the coarse grind is a tad inconsistent. That said, I use a hand grinder for french press all the time and am relatively happy with the results. A few common ones are:

The Hario Skerton. I personally have one and love it. As I said, not perfect for french press but it's a durable daily driver that never lets me down and can do an espresso grind damn near as well as a $300 baratza

The hario mini is essentially the same grinder in a different, smaller package. Perfect for travel

The porlex JP-30 is a tad more expensive but has grind settings that, while unmarked, do "click" into place making adjusting grind coarseness a bit easier


If you wanted to go the electric route, I've seen refurbished Baratza encore grinders for around $100. This will give you a mediocre espresso grind but a perfect and much easier drip and french press grind


Next up: preparation methods

French presses use a metal mesh filter, which gives you all of the oils in the cup and lets a tiny bit of really fine coffee solids through, which gives the cup a rich, full-bodied, velvety character They're also very easy to use as there's pretty much one accepted way to brew in them. And here's Philly's own Todd Carmichael demonstrating it. As far as which one to buy, they're all pretty much the same: a glass tube with a stick in it and some mesh on the end of the stick. I like my sterlingpro a lot but the bodum chambord is hugely popular and looks just as nice. Even a cheapo will do the job just as well, though, even if it doesn't look as nice.

pourovers do essentially the same thing as a drip coffee machine just with a lot more input from you, which is good because all but the most ludicrously expensive drip machines are very inconsistent and don't work as well as just doing it your own damn self. With a pourover, you're going to use a kettle or measuring cup with a spout to pour the water over the grounds in a set amount of time (3-4 minutes depending on the grind size) and usually in a very specific manner. Because these use a paper filter, there are no oils or insoluble solids in the cup so the coffee is clearer, tastes cleaner and usually a bit brighter than french press coffee. Popular models include the Hario v60 which is one of the more finicky models. If you decide on one of these, be sure to use a gooseneck kettle like Mr. Carmichael was using in the french press video above. Slightly more forgiving are the kalita wave and the melitta both of which would work fine with a normal kettle so long as it has some type of pour spout. If you want something with very thick filters, so as to produce a very clear cup, and also looks very nice, the chemex is a beautiful thing that produces great coffee, has a built-in carafe, and can make more than one cup at a time. Really more of a replacement for a large-volume drip machine than most pourovers.

The Aeropress is an absurdly popular, extremely versatile, and very well priced coffee brewer which is essentially a huge syringe with a paper filter instead of a needle. There's a thousand recipes online with different ways to use it, all of which produce a different cup.



Also worth noting is that you may want a kettle with temperature control, coffee should be brewed at 195-205F, so knowing what temp your water is helps reduce a lot of the headaches of cooling off boiled water for a vague amount of time. This bonavita is a little on the pricey side but has temp control and a gooseneck, which is always useful

I'm glad this one's here, it helps me feel less like everyone is insane.

How to have the best heart attack:

1.) Start using a french press.

2.) Screw the process, just carry it to you desk and drink the whole thing right out of it.

But, it was much less expensive when I bought it. At the end of the day, most of them are just a carafe with some sort of movable filter/press. The cheap ones probably work just as well.
