/ Trangias and stove top espresso makers
I'm thinking of buying a Trangia 27-1 but don't want to give up my Bialetti 3 cup espresso pot. I'm assuming that the base of the coffee pot will be too small for the Trangia system.
Does anyone have any advice on how I might adapt the Trangia, or of any accessories available to do the job? I found this one on a German website but the P&P is a bit pricey:
This should do it......
..and more Trangia ideas amongst these piccies...
Alternatively, a simple cylinder of 'hardware cloth' big enough to surround the burner, but small enough to support the espresso pot. Cut it so that it's the height of the top of the burner + 24mm.
Or a food can with both ends cut out, and V-slots cut around bottom and top, to allow air in and flame out.
Or a dedicated Caldera Clone for the espresso pot...
The Unterwegs thing looks nice (and almost exactly as per my quick scribbles), but I don't see why they didn't make it so that it engaged with, and locked in to the existing 3 Trangia pan supports. So it's unnecessarily heavy, as far as I can see. Ah, maybe the extra bits are to do just this in the larger Trangia 25.
