Since you mentioned Melbourne, would have expect you to use moka pot.

I am actually searching for Bialetti Brikka that are different from conventional moka pot but couldnt find (or at least see it) it anywhere in Msia or Melb. This Bialetti Brikka can produce crema! drool.gif

If you can't it in Melbourne, you are unlikely to find in KL.

What kind of cappuccino blasphemy is this!? Skimmed milk? Boiled? Yuck! I spot the Aeropress among your coffee toys and yet you went with the French press. Really? And I didn't see a grinder in the picture, but I sure hope you didn't use a blade grinder to go with that French press.

I'm sure you love your coffee but even Starbucks put more love into their coffee making. You have an Aeropress, use it. It has the best extraction outside of an espresso machine. And throw away that skimmed milk and get yourself REAL milk. That disgusting thing has no place in the kitchen.

I belive everyone having their own taste. My cappucino could be your latte and my defination of the taste might be different from you. Doesnt need all the bashing bro..

Here i prefer French Press as Aeropress tend to be too smooth. I prefer my coffee to be a little dirty. Btw, i do interchange French Press and Aeropress accordingly. If using Aeropress i prefer it to be inverted method as i find Aeropress coffee filters out oil. Oh yeah, i do own a Skerton grinder.

Skim milk is used as it produce nicely froth milk as it bubble rather fine. Yes, i prefer full cream Farmhouse over any skim milk. Appreciate your feedback bro but stay the bashing low. Afterall, we are here to share and learn.

Thank god, faith in humanity restored. I thought you're just just a crazy coffee bandwagoner. And I understand what you mean about Aeropress being too smooth, though I reckon it's more to do with sediments and steep time than coffee oil, but I'm not 100% on this. But whatever floats your boat....

Still, skimmed milk is EVIL. It's devil food. It should be banned forever and people who drink it should be thrown in jail.

Yes, smooth here being defined by the sendiment. Just to add up the filteration of the oil as well. The grind setting for Aeropress need to be finer comparable with French Press which is coarse grind.

Are coffee sugar crystals just a gimmick or a "real" thing?

Example:
http://www.csrsugar.com.au/Specialty/Coffe...r-Crystals.aspx

I bought a bag last time in Mauritius but I couldn't taste any difference hmm.gif ... granted I'm not a big coffee person so I don't have particularly refined taste buds anyways.

For a starter u may want to invest in a basic tools like frech press (recommend Bodum brand) and a Hario Skerton grinder. Buy freshly roasted bean and grind yourself for maximum freshness. Total cost might below rm300

Coffee bean may get from myespresso. Higlander Supremo blend.

Haven't venture into Syphon though I heard a lot of it. Would love to try it soon. Currently in love with Proud Mary House blend.
