i just found this old and epic thread while googeling for some Brikka articles. So i decided to sign up and share my experiences.
I bought my Brikka about 6 weeks ago just for fun. And i really love to make coffee with it trying a new setup every time in order to find the "perfect" Brikka setup. It really is such a simple device but its just so much fun trying to get the best possible coffee out of that little thing!
I use a rather fine grind which i produce with my Graef mill. I use 65 gr of water and fill about 4/5 of the filter and dont really tamp the coffee but knock the filter a few times on the table. I am currently using tre forze coffee with the Brikka and gives me a pretty thick and good "crema".
Of course this is NOT espresso but the result is very tasty and the Brikka offers great reproducibility!
