Your coffee brewing method

Had an email through from Pact (no affiliation) with info about their Black Friday deals. They've got 20% off equipment , which means you can get an Aerooress for £22.40 or money off V60s if anyone was considering getting one of those. There's money off some coffee too

Thanks for sharing. I’m probably going to grab an aeropress and a manual grinder.
Looks like it’s another rabbit hole I’m heading down.

I considered getting a plastic V60, collecting coffee brewing equipment now that I have enough razors. In the end I only bought a bag of house coffee

If you want 90% of the taste with less than 10% of the faff then Nespresso are perfect.
We were discussing the Black Friday deals on Nespresso.com, lass I work with got the Virtuo+ with the frother thingy and 100 capsules for £89! Its not £159 and sold out. SO I've then started looking at Delonghis, that steam milk, specifically the De'Longhi Lattissima Touch.

Been keeping an eye on this (and the other) thread.
I already have an Aeropress and have been using it with various ground coffees. But I took the plunge and just got a Hario Mini Slim + grinder. Tried it today with some Arabica beans I picked up from Aldi.
Some of you may scoff, but my recent mug was probably the best I've had for a while. Thanks for the tips.

If you got for a Nespresso I’d recommend one of the ones that uses the older capsule type rather than the Vertuo as the patent has expired and you can get a wide range of third party capsules. I’m very partial to the Supercharger espresso from Cafepod.

I bought an original Nespresso machine and a Lavazza A Modo Mio one. Gave the Nespresso to my ex and kept the Lavazza. Bigger and cheaper capsules. It was the inventor's second design, so I'd assume he learned something from the Nespresso. Mine is below - on eBay they sell for as low as £35 used. Excellent machine and good coffee.

My father in law has a lavazza similar to yours. It makes a lovely brew with little to no faff.
For £35 it'd be hard to argue

Yeah I've already ruled out the vertuo, I'm thinking the Lattisimo Touch. It was on offer at Amazon for £155, but now back up to over £200 so I'll wait until it drops again.

I got the Essenza, warm the milk in the microwave and use a battery whisk for the froth.
