Oh mY oH My *:D
So many points and all been discussed in various forms across many topics.
Depends on the been and the grind and in your case the basket.Sunbeam 5800 extraction time
Today at 10:44 * *Not sure if any of our CSrs still use a Sunbeam 5800 (Ill be upgrading soon * ), but I am just wondering how long do you find it takes to do a double shot?
Any where from 5sec to the ideal 26sec (for me)
Sounds right for stale coffeeI timed some last night and using a fairly course grind (which I know I shouldnt but it was a test), it took 12-13 seconds and then when I used a preground quality shop coffee it took 17 seconds. *
2 + 2 = 5 *where 5 is good coffee. * Every action has an equal and opposite reaction... *Newton third law was about coffee - he just did not know it. *In addition the reaction may take the form of other physical qualities...Ive just started roasting my own beans and will be picking up a Mazzer Super Jolly tonight so I wanted to start trying to figure out if it was a machine thing or a grind thing.
Further more coffee is not like paining with numbers...
In essence - a change in any of the raw components and or any bit of hardware and then what the USERS does; will cause a change in the outcome.
You have to figure it out... *No magic dial or number setting... *Rough guides at best.
The BAD and the Good *:DI am still using the pressurised basket but do have an unpressurised basket on its way...
NoAre the machines just programmed to pour 70mls and not worry about the time taken or
do I need to go back to basics and look at grind and tamp?
Pump might be rated at 15... But that is just marketing hype.Or is it the 15 bar of pressure thats doing this or the basket?
Would the average person be impressed by 9 or may be 10... NA
What is needed 9 to 10 - It is the reliability that is the real factor ...
10.100 As Sheldon has a break down from trying to stay under a 50 word responce *;D :D ;)
