Cooler Weather and Crema Coffee
So now that the weather is cooling off, sometimes the espresso in the morning isn’t quite doing it as far as warming things up. Let’s face it, a quick couple of ounces of warm espresso doesn’t quite warm you like a warm cup of coffee that you can wrap your hands around. Have no fear; Crema Coffee is here. With the Jura Capresso Impressa E8 (see our review), I have been dialing in a 5.5-ounce pour with a “strong” setting on the amount of coffee dropped. The result is a more dilute, but warming experience that still tastes great. The alternative is to make an Americano that has you pulling a shot into a cup, and then pumping in hot water on top of it. This may be a bit more pure as you don’t over extract the coffee getting some of the nasties out of it, but the Crema Coffee seems fine for now, and it’s a one-step process. You can do the same with most espresso machines by getting hot water out of the steam wand for the Americano, or letting the brew go long for a cream coffee.
