Need some cool foam to top off your iced latte? Bodum’s standalone frother is designed specifically to produce that. Gail tests out how this battery-operated gadget performs.
While not utterly elfin, the small footprint and diminutive size of Nespresso’s newest kid on the block will please anyone who has cramped countertops and wants super clean-n-easy espresso at home. The core functionality hasn’t changed, just the case design, and Gail walks us through the features, functionality and demonstrates making a shot on this tiny soldier.
If you’re going to do it, just do it, okay? No half steps! No ginger movements! No quasi-commitments! If you’re serious about making great coffee at your home or business, you seriously have to consider Mahlkonig’s K30 Vario. What? You don’t have an extra $1800 to drop on your grinder alone? That’s no excuse! Okay, maybe it is.
Nevertheless, even if you’re not willing to pick up one of these exceptional grinders because of mortgage payments or your child’s college fund, you can still enjoy watching the lovely conversion of form and function as Gail walks us through features and functionality, then demonstrates how well this baby grinds. Enjoy!
This is one of our crew faves (from !!!Bunny!!!) and we realized the only video crew review we had done on this machine covered the refurbished models we work on and carry. So we thought we’d take you through a brand spankin’ new model — which performs exactly as a refurb, it’s just a little bit shinier. Watch Gail take us through her usual lecture on the Incanto Deluxe’s features and functionality, then demonstrate making a latte.
It wouldn’t be a bit over the line to accuse us of having a deep crush on the Mahlkonig ProM. This multi-purpose stepless grinder excels in its consistency of grind. Watch as Gail grinds three different levels — espresso-fine to press pot-coarse — and demonstrates how consistent the grind remains.
We have two heat exchange, automatic espresso machines in our store so we thought we’d do a lil of the old side-by-side comparison, if you know what we mean. Gail runs through a basic overview of the features on the Nuova Simonelli Musica and Pasquini Livia 90, then pulls shots off each to see if there is any practical difference in shot quality or flavor.
