How To Revamp Your Coffee Game | The Menzini Files

My love for coffee almost sounds like a cliché but it runs deep and we’re in it for the long run. So I thought why not share ways to revamp your coffee game at home today?! There’s just something about my personal coffee ritual and the different ways I like to enjoy my cup throughout the year, that deserves a closer observation…

WANTED: Coffee and all the creamy milk froth

I like my coffee strong. Made from a balanced mix of robusta and arabica beans but not too much acidity. That’s why usually espresso doesn’t work for me. Like Carrie Bradshaw once said: “I like my coffee like hearing the truth, with a touch of milk in it.” In my case, that milk needs to be soy milk and frothed into creamy perfection. Since I am still looking for someone who just gets it, I might need to become my very own barista.

For my new place, I finally want to get my own Dream Home Coffee Bar and a pump espresso machine, I can actually handle. Including milk frother and all. From what I know so far, the DeLonghi Dedica Style is where it’s at. I know that I need to quit the habit of pricey lattes to go asap.

My Current Coffee Ritual at Home

Back in my old apartment, I used a Bialetti Moka Express Stovetop Coffee Maker. The technique is quite simple and the result is full-bodied strong coffee that works great with or without sugar and a nice shot of milk.

As a true java junkie at heart, that should tick all the boxes, right?! Well, kind of. A cup of coffee from the Bialetti smells and tastes amazing, but I do miss the milk froth and don’t care so much for electric frothers, which would make the DeLonghi Dedica the perfect choice.

the perfect iced coffee for summer

During the hot and humid summers in Vienna, I bet I could actually live solely from chilled watermelon chunks and iced coffee. The latter works best with my Bodum French Press. As I said, I have nearly tried all the coffee tools so far. With this one, I like to use coarse ground coffee, lots of ice cubes, and a splash of soy milk or sometimes even coconut milk, when I need something more savory. Now you know the way to my heart, people: a perfect cup of coffee ♥

What is your coffee ritual at home?

    solltest Du mal nach München kommen, dann gehört ein Abstecher zur Kaffeerösterei am Viktualienmarkt zu Deinem Pflichtprogramm ;)

  2. I’m no coffee person at all, tea all the way and even tea doesn’t need to be fancy :D
