Yes, but there’s like half a shot of coffee and a fuck ton of water to the point where you can barely taste the coffee anymore Short black is a linear game.

>>590683848Espresso is made in a slightly different way than regular coffee.A latte is different from a cappuccino

Coffee snobs are every bit as pretentious as cheese and wine ones.Ordinary instant coffee is all you need to get your caffeine fix.

Is there any benefits of making espresso from a manual machine over a regular espresso machine? I was interested in a Flaire Neo, but I wanted to get feedback first before exploring more.

>>590684349I've had like 10 breweries pop up in my area over the past few years.they never have any stout or porterits all sours and ipasI fucking hate it

>>590684187As someone with an old Pavoni and a modern espresso maker, I can tell you that provided you can see how espresso is supposed to flow, manual machines will never produce a disgusting coffee. Because you regulate it while it is flowing out. If you set the machine wrong, the cofffee will be either extremely bitter or sour and undrinkable.So if you like to try a lot of different coffee beans and don't want as much trial and error, go for a manual machine. If you want exactly the same coffee everytime (consistency) and the ability to minmax, go for a modern machine.

>>590684187Cheaper smaller and less convenientIf you want to drink espresso once in a blue moon then you better off just go to Cafe near by and get one Cause you probably want to use freshly grounded beans in which case you need to also have coffee blender and among all other shits. Otherwise you might as well drink brew coffeeregular machine is just a lot more convenient with hot water built in and it also come with milk streamer

>>590685123Just get a latte

>>590685061Did you seriously just post this? I honestly can't think of anything more vile than Nescafe 3 in 1. Even nameless Tesco brand instant coffee would be preferable.

>>590685184What the hell kind of Nescafe have you been drinking, the stuff I drink is just an okay drip-brew with creamer in flavor.

>>590685156steamed milk has it's place and sometimes water content in the right espresso really opens it up, especially if it's extracted just right. more water can really highlight when the espresso was burnt. plus the higher water content helps depending on the morning

>>590685123>drip coffeeThere's your problem

>>590685280i love coffee all forms i love my percolator i love my espresso machine i even love my instant simple as

>>590684150Never used to drink coffee until I won a $500 Starbucks card and drank random hot shit from there. I started drinking instant Cofee Mate & Nescafe at the office and it's just this powdered shit and it tastes better.Never tried McDonalds, Dunkin Donuts or Tim Hortons yet.

>>590685331You'll lose your fucking mind when you start trying actual coffees that you brew yourself, if you're impressed by fast-food coffee and instant. Try a Chemex brewer or buy an electric percolator.

>>590685601Making your own cola ain't worthwhile and most of the knockoff cola syrups you can buy suck. Especially if you want flavored colas like vanilla or cherry.

You know what? It's not bad.The maker, not the pod in it. Pretty much every coffee company Keurig owns makes horrible product. Buy Peet's if you're going to buy pod coffee. And for the love of God buy a reusable pod that's compatible with your machine so you can just use ground coffee.

>>590685923they taste different but they are both still coffeeI guess if you just want a cup of coffee then it does not matterbut its like the different between coke and Pepsi

>>590685714Not the north american kind, which is either reheated stale water o a sugar bomb with a hundred things besides coffee

>>590685496do you grind your own beans? if so, which grinder do you use? if not, what preground brand do you buy?

>>590685923i think "normal coffee" is brewed while espresso is pressed with 15bar.

>>590685805>been drinking since they were 14That's pretty normal in every country except America though

>>590684349what are some good IPA then?

>>590686185Open world games don't have levels

>>590686123Yes I do!I use a CuisinArt DBM-8 burr grinder for general purpose but I've been meaning to upgrade to a Baratza or something else in that price caliber for more consistent grinds. THAT SAID, a DBM-8 is a pretty good electric grinder for the uninitiated. You will probably be setting your coffee grinds to the highest fineness setting but you're able to sorta-kinda dial it in (it's not a precise machine) and having a hopper for beans is a good touch. Do note the collection basket is not anti-static so coffee grinds and powder will stick to the inside of it like a motherfucker.Honestly I usually just buy Folger's Colombian brand coffee ("Colombian" has a pretty decent quality floor regardless of brand) if I want pre-ground, I also like Chock Full O' Nuts (seems to be a harsh coffee, has a high caffeine content) and Peet's.One of my go-to coffees for beans to grind myself is Don Pablo, they have a variety of roasts and sell coffee beans in 5 lb. or 2 lb. bags. They also have pre-ground.

>>590683848>What makes it an americano?It's espresso mixed with water.>What makes an espresso?See here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EspressoBasically: you can prepare coffee in number of ways. Sometimes difference can be noticed by coffee casuals (think gameplay of Streets of Rage and Bayonetta), sometimes you need to experience it for the first time (think Starcraft vs Starcraft: Brood War), sometimes it takes years to notice the difference.Same goes with pretty much all the food/beverages. There are several types of vodka, whisky, pasta, chocolate, tea, bread, cheese etc.

Why does coffee make me feel a little bit ill and give me small headaches? And why do I often still feel tired after drinking them despite not consuming it often?

I've never drank coffee. If it smells bad, it will taste bad. And I've never smelled any coffee-related thing thats smelt good.

Light roast or dark roast?

Fuckin love coffee. Wish it didn’t give me caffeine addiction. Decent decaf beans are hard to come by

>>590688480Coffee's one of those balancing games where you're gonna be constantly scrounging for price/performance, but don't worry too heavily about it since it only starts getting absolute retard several-hundreds/thousand dollars when you enter espresso. If what you're mainly after is a cup of coffee in the mornings from a drip-brewer or a percolator you can stay very cheap and still get a good cup.Truth be told I use a Keurig for a lot of my coffee because I have several cups throughout the day and the sheer convenience of a cup, fresh, NOW is unparalleled. It's either because I'm using a K-Supreme or people are just too snobby about an automatic machine, but I haven't noticed any strength problems with my machine. But when I've got guests or I want a GOOD cup instead of 10 to 20 ounces that I can swill without having to get up again, I bust out actual coffee makers and actual grounds.
