Me neither! But yes they do sell coffee beans as well as tea. Although most of the beans are blends, not SO They also sell a range of coffee equipment, amount and type depends on the store and how big it is. The one in the Passage is quite small, and therefore limited. But the franchise owner has changed since I left Den Haag, so the shop may have changed its direction too.

Alternatively check out the Kaldi, again a franchise, but more likely to have equipment including these Bialettis. Not sure of the Den Haag shops address.

Simon Levelt .... :evil: now I will have to go wash my mouth out with soap. :wink:


Yup, that's the one... and all over sudden I remember why I forgot the name in the first place ;)

They sell this device from Bialetti, at least the one with one sprout.... the double (like in the picture) I'm not sure about.

Kaldi in The Hague is in the "Haagse Bluf", but they don't have this device as far as I know (been there last saturday to getr a milkpitcher). I made the mistake to order a ristretto.... :(

Vev make great s/s moka pots. My recipe for a good Vev experience: Keep everything clean! watch the brew closely and don't let the pot "burp"! Use absolutely fresh beans. Take the pot off the heat or lower the heat when the first drops come through. Only let half (or maximum 2/3:s) of the coffee come through, then pour it over into the cup(-s).

Yeah, but they cost about 50 euros, that's a lot of money (and I'm saving (going to save ;)) for a descent espressomaker) . . . and besides, Im pretty happy with what i got now, considering I only drink coffee for about 1,5 months now :D
