Subject: Pulling a 'shot' or making a pot?

Espresso drinkers make their beverage a shot at a time.

No manufacturer makes a 8-12 shot espresso machine. Why not?

When it comes to a great cup of coffee, why would anyone want to make
more than a single cup if they are the only one drinking it?

It takes LESS effort to brew a single cup than to pull a single shot.

Here I go again:

Keep the filter basket from your drip maker and throw away everything
else.

Heat your drinking cup full of water in a microwave (I use 1:30).
(You can also heat the water on the stove or with an immersion heater
when traveling.)

Pour the heated water into an insulated cup in which you dumped your
ground coffee.

Stir, steep a minute or 2 and then pour into your filter basket that
you placed onto your heated drinking cup.

A 4 minute process. Delicious. You will never turn back to a
'machine'.

Please try it and report back.

-snip strange ramblings-

Many manufacturers make machines capable of brewing multiple shots,
either 2/4/6/8+, and some even have bulk brewing attachments (groups)
that can brew 1/2 gallon or more at a time.

Howdy Craig,
That's a great size for caffeine freaks, but what size pitcher would you
need to steam enough milk for a latte if you used that PF? ;)

ROTFLMAO!! {;-D
I don't think it's for pulling a huge shot though, maybe Cafe Swiss?
For a double (1 1/2 - 2 oz), people steam what?, approx 6 - 8 ounces of
milk? So that'd be around 96 - 170 oz, Good grief! {:-o

That is how I've been brewing coffee in my 1 cup French press for
years. Works great. OTOH, since acquiring my SL90, I've discovered
it takes little extra effort for a couple shots of great espresso. My
ol' press pot is in the Autumn of it's life. ;)

Because the results will be more like those from a moka pot.

Depends on whether you want that much coffee from espresso beans or
not. And it will depend on whether you want that flavor or espresso.

Sounds like a messy poor mans version of either french press or stove
top coffee.

Don't stay up nights waiting for test results.

So that they don't have to repeat the process again and again and again?

It works well. So do many other methods.
