Re: Breville...a bad choice?

Sorry to hear about giving up with Espresso. I'm still doing it on the cheap. The Le'Lit is about ideal for me as I like the short warmup and the long recovery times do not bother me because I'm slow in the morning anyway. I did splurge and ...

Re: Screen-bottom popper solution (Presto Poplite)

... well they never will be able to do even probably 1/2 lb at a time. 12-20 minutes to do 1/4 lb isn't gonna work if you have two drinkers, do Espresso and only want to roast 1x a week. Now someday, a 220V/20A airbed could really rock... But if it were JUST me drinking I'd still be shaking ...

Re: Zass adjustment not working

Re: I have met the beans

... she brewed me a half-caf cup (old Yemen and new decaf Sumatra) that wasn't half bad. Frankly a lot better than the K-cups she uses for "espresso" from a different machine. Being used to "espresso" style, she thought it was too weak, though she liked the flavor. Latest ...

Re: Breville...a bad choice?

... but easy and great every time. I had to figure out a solution for water hardness also, what I did was use the zero water filter. But I gave up espresso and sold the machine. I'd like to sell the Mazzer too, once I get around to it. Too many projects! Nowadays I just use the Aeropress and I'm ...

Re: Effective cleaners?

I use Cafiza which is the same cleaner that I use for the espresso maker.
I also use the Mr Clean magic eraser. Quickly cleans the window and any bright work that shows discoloration. I use the Mr Clean between soaks.

Re: Behmor 1600-2 1/2 lb roasts or 1 1lb roast?

... can get results that tone the acidity down to the point of flatness, at least for a filtered cup. I don't pull shots, myself, but I hear that espresso extraction needs a more subdued acidity in the beans because it's such an effective way of extracting all the bright into the cup. Personally, ...
