bodum_redThis week we love the Bodum Brazil plunger, courtesy of Bean There:

"The BRAZIL coffee maker incorporates the BODUM® motto beautifully: good design doesn’t have to be expensive. After all, we want to give everybody a chance to brew an excellent cup of coffee in the greenest way possible: just hot water and ground coffee is all that’s needed. And that’s all that coffee lovers are left with, too – no waste, just taste".

4th_Avenue_Coffee_RoastersThis week we love 4th Avenue Coffee Roasters in Parkhurst.

It's quaint, it's intimate and it serves fantastic coffee. This tiny little shop is a gem in Parkhurst's popular 4th Avenue and the pink coffee roaster in the corner of the shop will tell you that this is not your ordinary coffeeshop. We love the fact that they roast their coffee in front of their customers, making them part of the coffee process.

Be sure to pop into 4th Avenue next time you're in the area. One thing you can be certain of is that they don't serve any stale coffee in this shop. It's about as fresh as it gets!

Shop 3, The Cobbles, Cnr 4th Ave & 11th Street, Parkhurst.

Allure Coffee Maker

Allure_Coffee_MakerThis week we love the Allure Coffee Maker from Russell Hobbs.

The Allure coffee maker is a classic example of "less is more". From a design point of view the Allure features a brushed stainless steel finish with a discreetly embossed logo running down the side. The minimalistic lines of the Allure gives it a contemporary, stylish look, fit for any modern kitchen.

From a practical point of view, the Allure is refreshingly simple and easy to use. It boasts a 1,5 litre water capacity with a removable flask for easy filling. A permanent filter also takes the hassle out of worrying about dirty filter papers. The Allure is operated with a single LED button and the "auto warm" function keeps the coffee at a consistent 98 degrees brewing temperature.

To complete the range, Russell Hobbs has also launched a matching Allure kettle and toaster for those of us who prefer a kitchen with matching appliances. This range is available from most major retailers.

Traditional Greek Frappe

This week we love traditional Greek Frappe's. This refreshing drink has its roots in Greece, but has in modern times evolved into something that is less wholesome and nutritious. Almost all restaurants nowadays serve the "instant" Frappe (i.e. flavoured powder blended with ice and water) for which they charge an absolute premium. The same goes for so-called "fruit" smoothies, made with flavoured powder, crushed ice and water. (Which means they don't use a single strawberry to make that strawberry smoothie you love so much). But more on that later...

FrappeFrappe's are perfect as a summer thirst quencher and always seem to be a hit at dinner parties. We thought we would share this step by step guide with you. It's dead easy:

What you will need:

  • Shaker or jar with a tight-fitting lid or drink mixer.
  • 1 cup cold water.
  • Double Espresso
  • Sugar (optional)
  • Milk (optional)
  • Ice cubes
  • Straw

 

 

  1. In a shaker or jar (with a tight-fitting lid), add 2-3 tablespoons of cold water, a double espresso, and sugar to taste (1 teaspoon of sugar for medium-sweet).
  2. Close tightly and shake for 10 seconds, until the mixture appears to be all foam.
  3. Pour the foam into a water glass, add 7-8 ounces of water, 3-4 ice cubes, milk to taste, and stir.
  4. Serve with a straw.

Tips:

  1. The purpose of shaking or mixing is to create a large amount of thick foam.. the more the better.
  2. If you have a soda fountain-type drink mixer or a small electric drink mixer, put the ingredients in step 1 into a glass to start, create the foamy base, and then add the water, ice cubes, milk, and straw to serve.
  3. Alternatively, this can be made without adding the ice cubes if the water is cold and the weather is, too.

    Bialetti Mini Express

    BialettiThis week we love the Bialetti Mini Express espresso maker.

    Preparing your espresso with a Mini Express is probably the most authentic way of preparing espresso on your own stovetop. It's efficient and will certainly draw attention. The coffee maker uses the heater unit of the classical Moka Express and has a special feature in its unique spout that serves the coffee directly into the cup, which is heated during preparation. You can make two espresso shots at a time. We love it!
