Topic: Neopolitano - flip drip was:+But A Sip Is Still A Sip (5 msgs / 95 lines)
1) From: John David Huddle
Angelo and Jerry,
I have a Neopolitano.   Perhaps you guys could give a more detailed 
description of its use.
Whenever I've tried to use it, I encountered a bit of a problem.   I'd put 
the water & coffee grounds in it, heat it on the stove BUT  when it was hot 
(water boiling) and I turned it over, the increased pressure inside would 
cause water to squirt out the little hole in the side of the bottom part.
Any suggestions from experienced Neopolitano users?
Dave

1. Don't put it on stove. Pour hot water from another source into pot. 2.
Wrap a napkin around pot before turning it. Just like a bottle of Champaign

Dave,
I have a few of those pots, but i don't use them much. I prefer my 
Americanos from Ms. Silvia. :-)
I would suggest, however, that the water should not be allowed to boil. You 
may have to experiment as to when to turn the pot over. I would watch the 
vapor stream coming from the hole, and use that to determine when the 
proper time to invert the pot arises...You could also just heat up the 
water in the bottom pot, and when it starts to come to a boil, carefully 
place the section with the coffee on top.
The squirting comes from the bit of water that is trapped in the space 
between the coffee holder and the bottom pot. You may be putting too much 
water in it. Experiment!
Ciao,
Angelo

Dave,
I have to defer to Angelo on this one.  I've never actually used the 
Neopolotano myself.  It was something that I remembered from my 
childhood - waaaay too many years ago.
