    Pre-Infusion on a Saeco Via Venezia :)

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hello again everyone :)

    So Ive been playing around with my machine every night after uni/work, to avoid study, and I read somewhere about pre-infusion techniques on a Silvia, and thought I could apply such methods with my Via Venezia...

    It only took one go, and Ive been completely converted to only pulling shots like this now ;D Its amazing how much more body each shot has!

    Anyway... Enough text, heres a video of a shot I pulled tonight. The bottomless handle helps show whats happening, and how much youre pre-infusing, as different methods result in a varying amount of dripping from the basket before pulling the rest of the shot at full pressure.

    Some more detail on technique is on the Youtube page.

    Vid looks good nader, watch ya distribution though, little bit of channelling there, this is a recently discussed topic raised by Greg Wormald, its a technique thats been around for a while but its improved my shots and those of many other forum members drastically ....have a read (original article link below)
