When I say romance, I’m talking more about the ritual that preparing my coffee has become. I could do it on autopilot, because I’ve made so many coffees, but to be honest it is what makes my day MY day.
Lately I have been turning more towards siphon coffee which is a cleaner and crisper version of coffee, when compared to espresso prepared as a long black. The grinding doesn’t need to be as precise and the process is a lot quieter which for some reason brings me closer to the process.
If you want to give it a try, you don’t need to invest in a Coffee siphon, you can achieve similar results using a French press or coffee plunger.
