Subject: Alton Brown's Espresso show 16 Aug 07
Alton Brown talked about machines and showed a number of them, but he worked
the entire show with one particular brand. I'm wondering if anyone saw the
show and could let me know what he was using.


Thanks.
Dee Dee

He was using a Saeco Classico I believe. I know it was a Saeco.

Brown's proposal of plunger pot-produced coffee as a substitute for
espresso struck me as a bit funny, and I'm a fan of both brewing
methods.

A different perspective on this episodic moment of the plunger:

First, I am definitely not a fan of the plunger pot, but I saw this
demonstration not as a substitute for espresso, but him describing a
different use for the espresso bean when ground differently.

Dee, are you lost? Don't tell me you're going to put an espresso machine in that
new kitchen...!

I read your information about your machine and it was the clincher after
seeing Alton Brown's program ;-). I intended to search your counter
appliances to see your recommended model, but I got way-laid.

** Countertops talk: I've been thinking about all the stuff that is on my
counters now and what to do with some things I don't use that often.
I guess that I'll have a little time to think before they come back to
install.

** Countertops talk: The counters were to be installed the 15th. The
longest piece (where I had the 11" overhang for the laptop) didn't match
the color of the other 3 pieces. So much for 'engineered quartz' all being
the same color. I really liked the color of the other 3 pieces that were
the the same as I ordered. They assured me that when they will re-install
that they will not use this long piece and match the others to it. I told
them that if they did, I would KNOW!

Coffee talk: As for coffee, I'm always interested in coffee, but all the
coffee makers have gone out of my kitchen in favor of tea. My biggest
concern is beans. I definitely would be buying organic beans. I love good
coffee, good espresso coffee, and would only want it if it was better in my
home than any I could buy within my small world. Borders is about the only
place I will order espresso any more, out of necessity -- and I don't really
care for it; it's inconsistent.

The next time I'm at Whole Foods, and when I have the time, I will start
checking on available beans, and read up on it during the wee hours. Alton
sure peeked my interest, and salivary glands, again.

Espresso is another enjoyment in life.
Thanks, Larry.
