-** Every house we visited in Sicily (wife's relatives) had a tiny burner on the range top specifically for this use. Remember, Fiamma Bassa (low flame) gives the best results and keeps the coffee from shooting out all over te stove, floor and you! If you like Latte, simply heat a bit of milk in another pan on the stove. This, and a little briochini, was breakfast, everyday for 2 weeks on our last trip.

Purer, flavorful, and quality coffee. * Coffee: Working at a coffeehouse, I know a little. And to me, the best way to prevent burnt coffee, cold coffee, etc, is to brew it one cup at a time.

  • If your coffee pot tends to burn the coffee within an hour or two, place three pennies on the hotplate. It will keep the coffee warm and not scorch.
    • Even better, get a thermal carafe pot. My wife regularly wakes up with my son at 6 AM, but I don't get up until 8 or so. Coffee is still hot and no burned taste. -- Douglas Welch 8:33, 24 Mar 2005 (EST)
    • I agree, I love my thermal carafe!! Keeps coffee hot all day without turning it into toast scrapings AND when I am running late I can just grab the whole pot and haul it into work with me. --Mose 10:55, 24 Mar 2005 (CST)
