  • Naturally sweet coffee

    Is there such thing as a naturally sweet coffee?
    Reading various cupping notes, some cuppers say that the coffee
    taste sweet, but Ive never drunk coffee that taste sweet except if I add sugar.

    Most people that drink my coffee take it without sugar.

    If coffee is roasted to and prepared well it can be naturally sweet.

        Afton, tell your fellow C/Sers your method when using your Brikka and someone will see if they can help you.

          This is my method:
          1) Use cold filtered water (using Brita jug), fill until the designated mark
          2) Fill the filter basket with 3 teaspoons of coffee, or until its full
          3) Wait until the gurgling sound, and pour to my ACF demitasse cup.

          Ive also tried to preboil the water in the electric water kettle, but taste the same as in using cold water.
          Some people say that _light_ tamping is good, is this true?

            Heres how I use my Moka Pot different to the Brikka I know.
            I use hot water
            fill the filter basket so that it is domed slightly overfilled
            light tamp
            turn on stove smallest burner, as soon as the gurgling  coffee comes out, remove from heat and cover with tea towel. Allow coffee pot to sit and finish bewing.

            If this doesnt give you enough espresso leave the burner on but raise the pot way above the burner just to keep the coffee coming out a little longer.

            The trick is not to burn your coffee and if you just heat the crap out of your pot is gonna taste bitter and sour and bad
