It’s no surprise that Dean Merlo starts every day with a coffee. But instead of visiting one of his cafes, or using a home espresso machine, Dean’s secret is that he uses the stovetop to make his coffee every morning.
“People often ask me why I use a stovetop when I own a coffee company,” Dean explains.
“And the truth is that everywhere I go during the day, I have espresso coffee.
“But stovetop is something different. If you make it well it can be so sweet and so strong. I really like that in the morning.”
Watch the video below to learn exactly how Dean brews his morning coffee.
It’s easy to make coffee at home just like Dean. Here’s what he is using:
- Bialetti Moka Express.
- Rancilio Rocky coffee grinder.
- Merlo’s Espresso Blend. Opt for beans to grind yourself, or we can grind them for you. We recommend a fine grind of 5.1 for stovetop brewing.
- Merlo espresso cup and saucer.
