Stellar Hob Top Espresso Maker
Good coffee, especially in the morning is essential in our house and over the years the Gillon boys have amassed a collection of different types of coffee makers. In addition to the standard coffee machines, they have a portable espresso maker, an aero press, an electric percolater, slow drip coffee maker and a bean to cup machine. Interestingly I’m told they are all essential and the Stellar espresso maker is a welcome addition.
Then there’s the essential top quality coffee and sadly as their coffee making skills improved, I was banished from ever grinding beans or making coffee.
The new Hob Top Espresso Maker from Stellar Cookware has offered hope for me.
Easy to use
The stylish polished steel pot holds 400ml and makes 6 cups. It’s suitable for use on all hobs types and the phenolic handle remains cool when in use.
It’s so easy to use and the six cup capacity makes it an ideal size for serving a crowd. The three part pot works exactly like other espresso makers. Fill the base with water, add finely ground coffee to the holder, screw the base and jug back together and its ready to make perfect coffee.
The stylish double walled espresso glasses from Judge Cookware are the perfect match for the espresso pot and will have so many other uses. I loved Serving affagato in them but they’ll also work well with other small desserts and starters. The glasses have a thermally insulated air pocket construction so no need for coasters. Hot drinks stay hot and the exterior remains cool.
One of my favourite quick desserts is affagato and the capacity of the Stellar espresso maker is ideal, especially if there’s 6 to be made
Afagatto is so quick and easy to assemble
Place a scoop of ice cream in a coffee cup and pour over a shot of espresso. Serve sprinkled with chocolate curls, chopped hazelnuts of crushed amaretto biscuits.
