Here's how we make our coffee:

Here is the gear we use everyday as we make strong, rich coffee at home.

Depending on the day, we make our coffee in one of three methods.

  • Espresso Maker: Breville Cafe Roma. This is a (relatively) inexpensive espresso maker that makes a quality shot. It has a small footprint, taking up little space on our counter. This was a gift from Bryan's parents.
  • Drip Coffee Maker: Ninja Coffee Bar with Stainless Steel Carafe. This unit makes good drip coffee. It also has an insulated carafe, keeping coffee hot without making it gross - like those little burner plates on most coffee makers. Dena's go-to every morning.
  • Stovepot Moka Pot: Bialetti Stovetop Moka (Espresso) Pot. This is Bryan's favorite for first coffee of the day.
  • Coffee Grinder: Cuisinart Coffee Burr Grinder. We've been using this grinder for many years and it still grinds consistently. This was a gift from our daughter.

Does anyone make an all-in-one machine that grinds coffee, makes drip coffee, espresso and frother? I find all of the above but, without the grinder. Maybe I'm asking for too much! Thank you

Thank you so much for all of the tips. I have recently became an instant coffee only drinker and have found KENCO Millicano, Americano Original to be a quite enjoyable treat whether hot or iced. Not bitter but with a robust nutty flavor. Just sharing an experience. Thank you again.

Please rectify your blog for the following: Buna is not originally an “Oromo” word and the “Oromo” tribe came to Ethiopia in the end of the 16th century. Coffee was being produced and well in consumption prior to the arrival of Oromos in Ethiopia.The Chronicle of Emperor Gelawedios in 1545 makes reference to Portuguese soldiers drinking coffee a new drink to them.Therefore Oromos couldn’t have been the originator of the word “buna” in the 7th century as you have it on your blog. If you want historical evidence to back up my claim i would be happy to provide. Thank you for your time.
