This (which cost £5 at the local supermarket), combined with decent coffee, works for me most of the time:Consider getting one of these instead of throwing your money at Starbucks:
That's a perfectly okay entry level portafilter espresso machine. Much cheaper in the long run and you can make all kinds of coffee with it. Tastes better, too.
(If you feel like spending more money, the Rancilio Silvia or Gaggia Classic would be an upgrade to the machine from the video.)
I completely agree. It's just that I don't think that I value the taste a Gaggia Classic brings to coffee sufficiently to want to buy one when I'm quite content with what my french press or my aeropress can do.I have both, a good French press and a Gaggia Classic (I REALLY like strong, good coffee). Depending on my mood I'll use one or the other. I really do think that they bring very different tastes to the coffee.
What sort of grind are you using?I have never managed to make non-gritty coffee in a french press.
An Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737-700, registration ET-ALN performing flight ET-363 from Djibouti (Djibouti) to Dire Dawa (Ethiopia), was on final approach to Dire Dawa's runway 15 when the aircraft flew through a swarm of grasshoppers and received a huge number of insect impacts into engines, windshield and nose of the aircraft. The crew went around, attempted a second approach but again needed to go around and diverted to their ultimate destination Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), where the aircraft landed safely about 90 minutes after departure from Djibouti.
The aircraft remained on the ground for about 11.5 hours for cleaning and a thorough inspection, which found no damage.
On Jan 15th 2020 The Aviation Herald received information based on a screenshot reportedly showing the report of the captain of the flight, that the aircraft was on approach to Dire Dawa's runway 15 when the aircraft entered a swarm of locust, it was like rain. The windscreen wipers were not able to clear the windshield anymore. The crew went around, climbed to 8500 feet, depressurized the aircraft, opened the cockpit side window and cleaned the windscreen by hand. The same happened on second approach to Dire Dawa. The crew again climbed to 8500 feet, cleaned the windscreen by hand again and diverted to Addis Ababa.
I'm somewhat bemused by people spending money on fancy coffee machines. I bought a used Mr Coffee at Goodwill for $6, and buy cheap cans of coffee, but then add hazelnut flavored creamer and powdered cinnamon to it. That suits my needs.Consider getting one of these (DeLonghi Dedica EC685) instead of throwing your money at Starbucks:
