Topic: KMB? (11 msgs / 172 lines)
1) From: Kevin
I was under the impression that Krups wasn't selling the KMB in the US
anymore.  I found the following link where it seems they're available for
purchase.  Have I been living in a cave and missed this or am I crazy?http://www.krupsonlinestore.com/category.asp?MENU=coffeemachines--

They  brought them back sometime last year - they must have gotten
enough inquiries about them or something, who knows.  But yes, they
are apparently now available once more.

I wonder if it's worth moving from the Technovorm (moccamaster CD) to  
the KMB...  The TV is a great drip brewer.  So many options in the  
world of coffee, there is definitely an artistic element to this  
hobby...

You haven't explored all the "art" until you've crushed your own beans using
the bottom of a cup into a pan, and then poured in boiling water....  What
happens when all your gadgets are missing....

You haven't explored all the "art" until you have determined  which "chicco 
di caffe," and that one at which roast level, you like to hold between your 
teeth while sucking in a half ounce of Sambuca after a good dinner to 
sweeten your mouth before greeting your dinner partner.  The joys of coffee 
are many.

Hard to know, Kevin. I came to the KMB from the world of French 
press/moka pot. If you enjoy that sort of coffee, then the KMB might be 
up your alley.
Some folks find it less than wonderful, and my suspicion is that it is 
just the wrong *style* coffee for them.
I have a KMB guide on my site. Seehttp://coffeecrone.com/brewing/kmb.htmSeveral people who couldn't get the hang of the KMB have said it was 
helpful to them.

Vicki,
I love my bialatti moka pot with coffees that have body and the TV with
bright, snappy coffees.  That's my typical MO.  Rarely ever use the French
Press anymore.

This is how a friend does it:>

For the roasting of larger ammounts of coffee: you need the services of the
local welder, and a thieved ( has to be thieved, or it won't work proper!! )
empty 15Kg cooking gas cylinder: weld it up with a central "axle,", and
handle: two supporting poles: and a hinged door: put it over the camp fire,
and slowly turn: when done, the hinged door lets you extract the roasted
beans ( does up to 20lbs at a time ).
For the real smokey flavour: make the drum out of a sheet of perforated zinc
( with very small holes!! ) and roast over a slow, smokey wood, camp fire.
