Vario vs Preciso

Will the Vario produce better tasting shots than the Preciso?

Thanks

Re: Liquid Amber Taste Question

I am not Behmor-experienced, but my general approach these days is to take roasts for espresso to FC+ for the initial tasting and adjust from there. To me, oily beans fresh out of the roaster suggest a step too far. Resting two to five days .

Re: ROK espresso maker

Here it is: http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/866680shot.jpg I find it weird that SM thinks this machine doesn't make a real ...

Re: Filipino Coffee -- Kapeng Barako

... will see good quality Liberica again that would be great. Or robusta, which I have noticed has not been around for a while either. (I use it for espresso and also as a component in an iced coffee blend that stands up to milk or cream)

As in really really good.

Roasted to 2nd crack.
Roasting in a Nesco, I did the smaller sized batch.

Agree! This is probably my all-time favorite espresso blend. Roasted in an SR500, ending the roast after about one minute of 2nd crack rolling.
