"Iconic" as applied to the Bialetti means highly original, influential, unique. Oh and yes, classic.
Not to mention instantly recognizable.
But! does it make great coffee??
No surprise, the Bialetti makes delicious, authentic Italian espresso. Of course it does.
If you feel at all intimidated by the Bialetti, read on.
You'll be surprised at how easy it is to make stove-top espresso!
For amazing results, try Cupper's BAD COFFEE or San Francisco Espresso.
Last but not least, make sure your coffee is ground right (should be slightly finer than drip grind.)
(Start at the bottom. At #1. Just sayin'.)
(You can congratulate yourself afterwords while enjoying your espresso. You are a coffee god, for you have conquered the Bialetti. Sip like an auteur, or shoot it back like a boss.)
The Aeropress was invented by an engineer, because coffee geeks can be found in every profession.
The Aeropress brewing method is fast and forgiving - you can't go wrong.
It's so easy to brew an amazing cup of coffee.
So many benefits! It's small and very light, which makes it great for traveling and camping.
Not to mention, versatile.
It's up to you how strong you brew your coffee.
You can make your coffee the same strength as a typical drip brew, or you can make it as intense and flavourful as an espresso.
So many attachments, so little time!
The Prismo is a must-have for the Aeropress aficionado.
Come into Cupper's and we'll show you everything you need to know!
If you can't make it into Cupper's for a live, in-person Aeropress demo, check out the details in the video below.
RED ESPRESSO is a great caffeine-free alternative to espresso, because it's made from rooibos tea.
And not just any rooibos: we buy the organic, high-grown, specially ground rooibos tea that we prepare just like coffee.
In fact, Red Espresso produced in our La Marzocco has a beautiful golden crema (just like espresso does) because of the natural-occurring oils in the tea.
WHAT IT TASTES LIKE
Our high-grown rooibos is a bolder, sweeter, richer-tasting rooibos than you've ever had before.
It delivers a strong, full-bodied TEA flavour. It doesn't taste like coffee.
If you're wanting a freshly roasted coffee flavour, best stick to traditional espresso.
If you're a tea drinker and want to try something different and crazy-healthy, Red Espresso will do it for you!
Red Rooibos is loaded with antioxidants.
10 times more than regular brewed rooibos tea, and 50 times more than brewed green tea.
Bringing a Zen-Like attention and focus to your espresso can change your experience. Which is true of anything, isn't it?
There's no one right way to do this. At Cupper's, we keep the espresso tasting methods simple - while giving our excellent espressos the time and attention they deserve:
Here we're cold-brewing up some strong Summer Berry tea, to use in our Shaken Summer Berry Lemonade.
A London Smog is a London Fog, only with Chocolate Pu-erh Tea instead of Earl Grey. It's amazing.
Gotta a love a little latte art with creamy milk foam.
Ha! This is the most indulgent slo-mo EVER. Whipping cream heaven.
There's something mesmerizing about the gentle fall of roasted coffee beans.
The simple, straightforward pour of an excellent, fresh cup of coffee. The video you didn't know you needed.
Our Custom Built Coffee Roaster takes the fine art of Coffee Roasting to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL.
At Cupper's, we "cup" (taste-test) coffee from roasters all over
Canada and the U.S. just to make sure we stay at the top
of our game. With pride, we can say our coffee is CONSISTENTLY
more flavorful, balanced, and rich than others.
Our roasting equipment is top-notch,
and so are our master roasters.
Our custom-built coffee roaster was "tricked out" to meet
our super-high standards and unique specifications.
So. The answer was to build a custom coffee roaster. With the help of a friend with a PhD in thermal dynamics and a local fabricator, our roaster was born.
It was all very complicated, and got a little crazy there for a while, but our guys knew what they were doing. We even asked them to do things like slow down the rpm of the drum to increase the sweat-time of the coffee.
These small improve improvements in our roaster translate into BIG improvements in our roasted coffee. We can refine our roast in ways that other roasters just can't match.
We roast almost every day... if you're in the store and you're interested, watch our master roaster create some magic.
How are you grinding your coffee? The right grinder and grind setting can make your home-brewed coffee AMAZING.
Let's assume you're buying Cupper's freshly roasted coffee, which means you're getting the best beans at the best roast... then the next most important thing is THE GRIND:
KEEP YOUR GRINDER CLEAN.
Coffee is a food product, and like any other food-processing equipment, your coffee grinder should be regularly cleaned. The Bodum Bistro grinders are easy to clean: take the top off, brush/vacuum out the inside, and run the top through the dishwasher. Done.
The Aeropress uses a combination of pressure and heat to extract the coffee. Any of Cupper's coffees are excellent made in the Aeropress. We suggest the Ethiopian Yrgecheffe, our Mexican Chiapas Dark Roast, or for a more mellow flavour, our Old World Blend Café Barcelona.
Many coffee drinkers think that these stove-top brewers only make espresso. Not true!! It all depends on how much coffee you use and how tightly you pack the coffee. In Europe, this is THE most common way to brew your daily coffee.
There's a good reason for that: they're easy to use and clean, and they make excellent coffee.
