Coffee beverages for all occasions

Piston coffee makers are the only way to prepare a café créme in the correct way. This long coffee beverage is prepared under pressure, but is not an extended espresso, and is also not made from espresso beans but from a Swiss roast (a blend of coffee beans with different roast grades).

This is a shame, as it produces an unmistakable and unique taste profile for the coffee.
