Re: Seek suggested Hottop profile for SM New Classic Espress

... temperature probe reached 300 degrees, reduced the temperature to 8 and waited until the probe reached 325, then added my 180g of the New Classic espresso beans. I turned the fan to 1 at bean temp of 250. That resulted in reaching a bean temp of 300 in 5 minutes 40 seconds. I left things like ...

Nicaragua Mystery

... a solid C+ to get my bearings. Which shouldn't be the issue, as the coffee house I got it from roasts notoriously light/light-medium. Even their espresso is, and I quote, "Avant-garde light in an over-roasted world." I know I didn't let it rest. But every time I test a coffee to check ...

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

... problem, for some reason the knurled knob ran out of threads (turning counter clockwise) when trying to make it grind for finer grind (trying for espresso fine).

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 ...
