Swiss Water says it uses a chemical-free process to strip the beans of their stimulative nature, resulting in a brew that "tastes so good you don't miss the caffeine." But will you get a discount because something that should be there is missing?
Supposedly big in Japan, and now introduced in the US: cans of piping hot coffee. The label acts like an insulator. To heat the coffee, you need to buy a 'Hot Box' which -- after 90 minutes -- has the coffee at 140 degrees Fahrenheit. No thanks.
Restaurant Quality Coffee
If you have been looking for a coffee machine that brews restaurant quality coffee, look no further.
DeLonghi Dedica produces traditional espresso and cappuccino drinks right in your own kitchen.
You can use ground coffee, either store-bought or prepared at home -- or you can use easy-serve espresso pods. Personally, we recommend that you get a good burr grinder and so you can grind your own coffee beans. You'll love the difference, as well as the amount of money you save.
The espresso pump’s thermoblock technology heats up water to the ideal brewing temperature in just 40 second.
You can customize your favorite temperature, as well as the amount of coffee expressed.
The machine's milk frother produces barista-quality foam.
Best tip: How to quickly steam and foam milk in a Mason jar. Fill a mason jar no more than halfway, put on the lid, and shake the jar vigorously for 30 seconds. Then remove the lid and microwave the milk for 30 seconds at high power to both warm and stabilize the foam.
Bill Ristenpart’s three year-old course, The Design of Coffee, has become the most popular chemical engineering class in the country, enrolling a quarter of Davis’ freshmen. After spending the semester deconstructing coffeemakers and determining pH levels by taste, the 500-odd students compete to engineer the tastiest brew using the least amount of energy. Which isn’t easy, Ristenpart says, because “we know very little about coffee.”
