Brewing with the Moka Coffee Pot

Today I had the idea of trying the Moka coffee pot as I have never tried it out before. Here is the pot I bought.

3-moka pot

The beans I used are moka beans, ground fine but not as fine as espresso. I use a mill to grind the beans.

2-coarse

The Moka pot looks interesting. The pot I bought is very thick – good for any heat source.

I filled the water up to the line. I used pre-heated water, and it started to brew on the stove after 2 minutes. I added some hot milk, I didn’t measure how much, and some sugar.

The coffee tastes quite smooth, not bitter with a nice acidic balance, which is perfect for people like me who don’t like thick coffee. However, I really didn’t like grinding my coffee with the mill; it is too difficult to clean.

Having said that, for a good cup of coffee it’s worth it!

K Cup Coffee Flavor Review Part 1

Let’s begin with Timothy’s k cups

Breakfast blend is the first one I tried, pretty smooth, but not highly suggest, try some other breakfast blend, seem better than this on.

Caramel Vanilla Nut is the worst coffee I have ever tried, you cannot expect to differentiate caramel flavor as well as vanilla flavor. Don’t buy it.

Columbia De-caf is a blend i want to drink sometimes, its tasting is pretty pleasant.

There are other 2 Colombian coffee I have tried, but they tasted completely different. One is Colombia La Vereda, I like this one very much, and have listed into my favorite list which is the media roast, tasted very smooth. The other one is Colombian Dorado FT, it’s a disaster, you can’t even identify the flavor. Poor Colombia coffee beans.

Emeril’s Big is also on my favorite list. Some people say it smells like burning rubber, I think the problem is on roasting, however, i just love it, the coffee is decent.

Emeril’s French Quarter Roast – pretty good although not as good as other french roast, on my occasionally ordering list.

French Roast – never forget to add cream when you drink it, the slight sweet and smooth flavor is really attracting. I like it.

Kona Blend – pretty nice choice if you are tired of your current morning blend.

Italian Blend – not special at all to me, i don’t like it, I do like Italian coffee, but not this blend.

Midnight Magic Extra Bold – you can find this on my favorite list. Not bitter at all and very rich. You will love it.

Morning Blend – although it is too light for my tasting, it is still good, you may give it a try, but not in morning.

Nicaraguan FTO EB – This coffee is medium roast. I love the sweetness left in my mouth, very slight though.

Parisian Nights Extra Bold – If smokey coffee is what you like, this bland will be your favorite. To be honest, this blend is really dark and smokey.

Private Blend – This coffee is medium roast, its fruity flavor is a surprise for me, I love it so much. Only thing i don’t like is the acidity which comes out only when i finished my drinking coffee.

Rainforest Expresso EB – disappoint me, not as good as advertised in their site, won’t buy it again. Another one i don’t want to buy again is the San Lorenzo Dark blend, bunch of better blends out there.

Spanish Sol – not a daily coffee flavor, spicy, maybe want to give it a try other day.

Sugar Bush Maple – when you brew it, the smell cannot be better, very nice. However when you drink it, you will find that the flavor some kind of being masked by the cream which is not good. You may also want to taste it when the it cools down since the thick sweetness left in your mouth is wonderful.

Sumatran Gold – I don’t suggest this one, I hate the woody taste, even the cream can’t help improving the taste.

Second one is Caribou

Caribou Blend – This is good for breakfast, you will find a litter bitterness left in your mouth when you finish drinking.

Mahogany – on my favorite list, this is a very outstanding cup of coffee. i like the chocolate and sweetness of this blend, it tasted really rich as well as smooth.

The third one is Coffee People

The best blend I love from coffee people is the Tree Hugger FTO which is perfect medium roast and not bitter at all, it is very balanced and smooth. Cream is a must for this blending as it brings the sweetness in my mouth after drinking. You will also find some chocolate note.

The worst one which i don’t suggest at all from coffee people is Jet Fuel, choose other dark roast but not this one. Third blend i tried is Organic, pretty nice and smooth, although not for daily drink, it is still a good blend.

Diedrich is not the one I usually buy, but got a sample from a friend.

Paradiso House – If you want to fully enjoy this blend, cream is suggested. Besides, i don’t like the unpleasant bite after drinking.

Gloria Jeans – only tried 2 blends, here they are.

Black Gold – do not expect cream to change the flavor, it is a very intense cup. All in all, still good coffee. Another one is Hazelnut, toooo weak, not get my notice at all.
