From: "John Blumel" <Snip> The Moka Brew is by Krups. I love mine! (Since it isn't offered at SM, best price I found, for anyone who is looking, is www.cooking.com .) Go to www.jumpondeals.com first to check what coupons they have. Enjoy! Jean :~)
How is this different, except in styling, than a steam toy?? Angelo <Snip>
This is a multi-part message in MIME format. I finally found one that was still in the factory sealed box. Even = including shipping it was cheaper than at Krupp's online store. I received it a couple of days ago and have made several pots of coffee = with it. It sure does seems to bring out more flavors than the = technivorm does. Those of you that remember about the homemade cloth filters, I have two = different thicknesses and fineness. I use the thicker and slightly = looser woven one for French Press and it does filter out more than even = the secondary fine filter I got from SM's a year ago or so. Then I have = a thinner cloth that is more tightly woven and works better than the = Kreps and the AeroPress paper filters as it lets more oils come thru but = keeps almost all of the "mud" out of the final brew. I'm curious about what grind is the best for the Krupp's moka pot so far = I'm using a grind that is smaller than what I would use with a paper = filter but not as fine as the espresso grind I use in the AeroPress. = Also when any buildup starts in the boiling chamber, what can be used = to clean it up? Would I use the same cleaning agents (like the powder = or granular from Wal-Mart's or other stores) or something else? Do you = use the same amount of coffee as with the technivorm for the same amount = of water? Any help would be appreciated. I know some of this may be in the old = archives, but with a few people finding them last year and early this = year, I thought I'd get a "fresh" view on these questions. George the MadHemi roaster.
So, I peek in while on holiday and what do I see--an unanswered KMB question--ha. Eddie, where ya be? I use the cloth filters meant for the yama that SM sells. They work really well. I use a grind that is finer than for drip, coarser than for espresso. On my Rocky, I am 8 over from the zero point. The coffee is good in the KMB using various grinds, and I do tend to adjust for the bean a bit. You want something granular, rather than powder. The KMB makes 40 ounces, and I use about 60 grams of coffee. Ihave a KMB page on my website that might be helpful:http://coffeecrone.com/brewing/kmb.htmVicki (on a blackberry in the wilds of BC) On 9/29/07, George wrote: <Snip>
This is a multi-part message in MIME format. Thanks Vicki for your reply. I kinda thought that the grind would be coarser than that for espresso = and finer than drip. I have also been playing with the grind size on my = rather new Bodum glass vacuum pot also. I'm going to your KMB page and get some help from a KMB pro. Thanks again. George M.
Fortunately, it doesn't take much to become a KMB pro. I'm leaving mine here on Hornby Island with friends. I'll pick up a new one in Spokane tomorrow. I ordered it on-line when my friend became a convert, so the new one will be waiting for me at the hotel. This same friend is getting a few pounds of greens as I leave. She already had an Oster bread machine and a heat gun. Just call me Vicki Coffee-Seed. :) On 10/4/07, George wrote: <Snip>
