moka pot vs. aeropress

i own both and here's what i think: - moka pot: makes strong coffee (you could almost call it espresso). grind size is all important here and if you get it right there will be just a small amount of delicious sludge in the bottom of your cup. 24g of dark roasted coffee ...

1st Post- 1st Roast (westbend air crazy)

... paying attention. i'm sure i'll add some kind of thermometer at some point, but just going by cracks has been pretty decent. unless i'm going for espresso- i usually dump the beans at the first snap of 2nd crack, but i can take it all the way thru 2nd if i desire. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-qtmI4NZkfqE/VO45fyyDp-I/AAAAAAAADo8/45aUCuS1m-w/w724-h543-no/IMG_20150225_160644.jpg ...

Re: 1600 with Plus panel upgrde - Err7??

... crack drop to P3 or P2 for the times recommended on Sweet Maria's site for times for city roast, etc. I have been getting good beans and great espresso shots and long blacks and brews. It's trickery but you do need to mess with it and experiment, experiment, experiment. Forgot to say. The ERR ...

... with my air roaster, so I threw in some beans and let er rip. http://i.imgur.com/KPKUwTcl.jpg My first pound was a Nicaraguan that came with the espresso sampler I ordered with the machine (from Sweet Marias naturally). ¼ pound I roasted on P1 (there are 5 preset profiles P1-P5 if you’ve never ...

Re: Light roasts on a SR500

... decent, but slightly darker results than I want. I'm still getting scorched spots on beans and can taste a little bit of burnt flavor in the espresso, but have been also getting some nuttiness and caramel in the cup, but am still having issues with underdevelopment/grassy flavors when shifting ...

I have roasted the coffee..... again!!!

... about 45 seconds into the 2nd crack. And now, the waiting begins...... - The IP Bourbon has turned out to be a very pleasant experience. Both SO espresso and SO press are quite nice. Likewise the do Sertao. Started blending the IP Bourbon with the coffees Connie sent me - I had run out of the ...

Re: I have met the beans

... about right for the Robusta Shot-off contestants. That may have been when I first realized just how, uhm, eccentric you could be! You and your espresso monkeys (and what's this, did they turn into squirrels or has the chorus gained a second section there?). Variety, yeah. I may be taking a ...

Forgot about that!!!

... the India Sufia Robusta winning out. It seemed less earthy, actually really bittersweet chocolaty. The robusta actually can work well in your espresso blend provided you keep the percentage quite low. Adds body, lots of crema. The Java Merapi Robusta? It was super earthy but very astringent ...

I have roasted the beans!!

... few days rest. So now I have reclaimed another part of my life back. This is very exciting!!! - Still haven't hit upon the balance for the blend, Espresso Connie. And now I am out of roasted FSDBV. But, yesterday when I was looking in the "coffee closet", I came across a bag of around ...
