Hi everyone, I've been lurking here a bit and decided it was time to join the fray....
My first post is a question. I have a Cona D I brew my wife's coffee in. It does a great job but it's fragile and occasionally stalls out. I was wondering how you good folks would compare (mostly the quality of the coffee produced) a Brikka Moka pot to a Cona Vac pot?? Extraction? Sediment? Smooth/sweet/bitter?? Just based on the coffee, which would you choose?? I understand many brewing techniques do not compare to each other well (How would I compare my Europiccola to the Cona??? They are too different) Is that the case with the Brikka and the Cona?? I expect the strength of the coffee produced in the Brikka will be too intense for her and I will wind up adding hot water to dilute it.
Thanks for your thoughts, (I did a search looking for this and didn't find anything but if this has been discussed, my apologies and please provide the link!)
