Re: Hi From Costa Rica

... gamut over the decades. Everyone says that the grinder is very important in your selection, and there is an excellent discussion on the whole espresso thing on the CoffeeGeek website, among many others. Considerable homework is worthwhile before going much further. For example http://coffeegeek.com/guides/howtobuyanespressomachine/semiautomachines

Re: Hi From Costa Rica

... for it and am SURE it does not grind coffee. :D I have recently upgraded to a Rocky Rancillo grinder (doserless) and love it too. As for espresso machines, I have a mid-range Breville espresso machine now, and it works nicely, letting us enjoy a delicious macchiato every afternoon after ...

Re: Espresso Grind Variance

Makes sense. There's no reason why beans from different sources should behave exactly the same way. I am aware of the humidity, but I was amazed how much this affected the grind. In fact, having calibrated the grinder for the Illy beans, and leaving it overnight to sample the humidity, I find the se...

Re: Espresso Grind Variance

That was a difference in the beans themselves. As the SAME coffee grows more stale, either you need to grind finer or you need to overdose a little. I roast a week to a week and a halfs worth (1+ lbs) at a time and it definitely is that way. Consistently? No some varieties last longer than others. S...

Re: Espresso Grind Variance

I've had just the opposite experience. After numerous modifications to my espresso machine (rancilio silvia) and grinder (Baratza Vario), I just got the grinder calibrated so that I can pull a double shot (60 ml) in 25 seconds with 14 grams coffee. Unfortunately, ...

Re: Espresso Grind Variance

... machines and better than $800 ones if you know how to use it and can tolerate its many faults. The Infinity grinder is reported to be useable for Espresso but arguably is at the very bottom of the scale for usability. Going up to a proper Espresso grinder would make your life that much easier. ...

Espresso Grind Variance

Hopefully this isn't terribly noob of me, but if it is, I apologize. I have a Mypressi Twist espresso machine and a Capresso Infinity grinder (I am aware of the disagreement when it comes to both of these machines. I don't want to hear it). First of all, I will admit ...

Re: Sweet Maria's Espresso Workshop Editions #31 Level Three

We used a Guatemalan coffee, a dry-processed Brazil, and an Ethiopian Yirga Cheffe. The Guatemalan will add sweetness and some body. The Dry Process Brazil will improve that body and add a nutty flavor. The Ethiopian steps in to add the high notes, such as florals and fruit notes. You can experiment...
