I was always a traditional coffee pot kinda of person. A few years back, I moved to the Coffee pod style maker. It wasn’t too bad since there was an option to put in an attachment for my own coffee grounds if I wanted. The pods got to be a bit expensive and it seemed that no matter how hard I tried, the machine was never cleaned enough. So, I reluctantly went back to my old coffee maker. It did the job for awhile until I started ordering pour over style coffee and fresh roasted beans of all types at my local coffee shops. I definitely noticed the difference and I tried Cuban style coffee and other types that were far better than my coffee maker could ever make. I ruined myself for anything but rich,delicious, full bodied goodness. After doing a ton of research, I came across the Bialetti company. Stove top coffee seemed like the best option if I wanted to try and recreate anything close to what I could get at the local coffee roasters. I decided on the Bialetti six cup Venus. Reviews stated that the original pot they offered would leach into the coffee and I didn’t want that. I opted for the stainless steel induction model, Venus. I have never looked back. The coffee is so amazing in this maker. You will want to get whole bean coffee and grind it fresh each time you make your coffee to get the best flavor. That, in my opinion, is the best. I still get coffee at my local coffee roasters, however, not nearly as often. It is a smaller amount of coffee than you are used to making in a traditional pot but the flavor is so much better. I have the six cup and it is enough for about one regular cup. If you are used to a big mug than it may take you a few cups to appreciate the smaller volume. If you are sharing ,than you may end up making two pots. They did have a ten cup but the reviews stated that it wasn’t as rich of a flavor as the more concentrated 6, 4,or 2 cup. If you enjoy freshly ground beans and rich, full bodied coffee,than this is worth looking into. If you know someone who is a coffee lover, this would be an awesome gift.
