"Turpresso"? Turkish coffee with an espresso machine.

I don't know if she watched it being made. She doesn't drink coffee so when it was offered she took tea instead. I've thought about decanting the Turkish coffee I make but it's less than two ounces so I've never bothered. I was originally thinking of buying a larger cezve but I read that the smaller ones work better

Which side is the top on this heating element?

The only problem is that the element on the left side is upside down. You can't install it that way. Spin it around so that the writing is on the bottom and then you will be ok

Salvatore Compact basics

FWIW, I have a plumbed version of the SCL built in 2017. I don't believe mine has a vacuum breaker valve. The instructions I received from Salvatore for starting up the machine were: 1) open the steam valve when the machine is turned on, 2) when water begins to sputter out of the steam wand, close the steam

User Experience with the Strietman CT2

As Jay said, I really like this thin screen and I got the 58.5 for my other machine. I might buy the 49.5 soon to replace my lost screen

Lelit MaraX

I've only done 3, but I use coffee priority mode and would just pull 3 shots in a row, then steam a large pitcher of milk for all of them. In the case of 4-6, I would do the same but split the shots so I wouldn't have to pull as many

Easiest way to make rpavlis water?

I can't speak to majority/minority, but I find it ridiculously simple to keep a small quantity of concentrate in the fridge. Then when preparing a gallon of water, a 1 ml eyedropper makes fast, simple work of it

Convince me NOT to buy a La Marzocco Linea Mini

The Linea Mini comes in very robust packaging. I think it would have to be grossly manhandled for anything bad to happen. Having said that, mine arrived with one of the drip tray rails slightly bent. Although, this could have happened when I was carrying it to its appointed space on the kitchen counter. Anyway, LM offered to send

"Turpresso"? Turkish coffee with an espresso machine.

Did she see the coffee being brewed? It might've been a different method in Syria and Jordan. For example this: {link} where the grounds are allowed to settle before straining through some kind of straw. I have also read about a style supposedly popular in Syria where the coffee is prepared for hours into a extremely bitter concentrate
