Topic: Krups Moka Brew vs Aeropress - was Re: +Technivorm (10 msgs / 140 lines)

Thanks for posting this source, Vicki. Now I'm interested.
Given the similarities between brewing with an Aeropress and a KMB 
(pressure through a paper filter), has anyone compared the drink 
produced with these two methods? Currently coffee made with the 
AeroPress is my favorite. I would like to make more at once, though, so 
I can share the pleasure.

I found the KBM to be simpler and more repeatable.  I thought the
coffee is richer and using a KBM is much less messy.

To further the comparisons...can anyone comment on how the Aeropress or 
KMB compare to a stove top espresso maker (moka pot)?  I've never tried 
the Aeropress or KMB.

I'm hard pressed to tell much difference. Maybe the KMB is a bit
richer, but both are intense and flavorful. I use 60gm of beans for a
40oz pot of KMB and 2 heaping blue scoops per 14 oz mug of Aeropress.
So it looks like I use a bit less in the Aeropress, but I'm cheap and
it taste good at that level. Convenience and desired quantity of
coffee needed is the key.  There are now 3 coffee drinkers at home and
only me at work.
I'm taking my Aeropress to a training tomorrow, so I don't have to
drink water.  I just can't drink any other coffee besides mine.

Odd isn't it, my standard pot is the KMB, which, despite its name 
doesn't make coffee that tastes like moka, and, for single serve, a 
stove pot espresso, which  despite it's name, doesn't taste like espresso.
I think the difference between the two has to do with the paper filters 
on the KMB, which do keep some of the oils from entering the brew. I was 
actually wondering about getting some of the polyester felt shtuff and 
making filters for the KMB out of it. Currently, I use the Melitta paper 
filters designed for percolators, I just don't punch out the piece one 
removes to accommodate the stem.
I also make French press and use a pour over. All four make great 
coffee, but I bet I could tell them apart in a blind taste test, even 
though I can't really describe the difference. I know that I often 
decide to make one kind, rather than another, because I want that 
particular coffee experience.

The Aeropress cup I made today using the BW filter was very similar 
to a Moka pot brew...it was a bit smoother, though.

"BW" ?
