I never get why people ask for a white Americano?
Surely an Americano is just espresso and water, the point you add milk it is no longer an Americano, it is just a Flat White?


No Darling, I've had it months!

You assume the person placing the order knows what they are ordering actually is?


Always learn from the mistakes of others. You can never live long enough to make them all yourself.

Ooh a coffee thread, how did I miss this?

I like espresso based drinks, so I started off down the Gaggia route but never got satisfying results. In the end I bought an Izzo Alex Duetto dual boiler machine, and a Mazzer Mini grinder.

What I found was that fresh beans and a good quality grinder make more difference that anything else.

Actually my Gaggia (modified with a PID controller) is still in my loft. Anyone interested? Suggest you buy a good grinder to go with it
