I have bought an Italian percolator and cannot get the taste right, like you would find in a coffee house.


I buy beans from a proper coffee house and tried many different coffee types and origins.

The taste I am trying to achieve is basically the French coffee taste you get in brasseries.

The owner of the coffee place I buy from heavily roasts my beans but I still can’t get it right. What am I doing wrong?

  • And - second clarification question - you want the kind of coffee you would get at a brasserie in France? (Which iirc is quite different from an espresso?)

  • A correction first; this is not a percolator (see). moka tag in general may help. Following are recent discussions on how to prepare coffee with a moka pot: one, two, three.
