    Saeco Bar 2000, flow rate on shot, opinons please

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all

    Recently bought this little Saeco of CS member Aero (see link)
    http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?num=1235190429

    Aero is a top bloke and a pleasure to deal with :)

    anyway the machine works very well but want the opinon of the CS team. this is a video of someone (not me or my machine) pulling a shot on a bar 2000.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGpHIml1GeM

    My flow rate is a bit slower and i think it might be the "grind" is to fine and i need to back it off a bit. What do CSers think of the "flow rate" in the vid? I count it to be about 25 secs

    Also the basket is 53.5mm inside, flat side and about 24mm deep, would this be considered a "triple" or a "double"?

    My beans are now 3 weeks oldish and i am not getting much of a crema, might pull a few shots and take a pic and a vid :)

    Cheers

    Maheel

    Hi Leeham,

    I was wondering how you were going with the Bar 2000.

    25 - 30 seconds would be about right for a shot of coffee.
    In order to get good crema, you must have fresh beans.

    As an aside, did you buy yourself a good tamper?

    I hope you (and family) are settling in OK in Sydney.

    Kind regards,
    Ali :)

    Hi Ali

    Yep the BAR2000 is going great. I had a laugh

    And yes fresh beans are the go, I had bought some from a local supplier ( not sponsor, but have a good name??) i wont mention (not worth bad mouthing them, just wont go back) but they were as fresh as woolies beans IMO, rubbish.
    And was having a bit of trouble getting a nice coffee :(

    <<< Then i went to http://www.sibonis.com.au/ a site sponsor <<< got myself a nice new tamper :) and some very nice and fresh beans :).

    worth the drive to Pymble to check them out, GREAT SERVICE !! very nice coffee in store, and heaps of coffee gear to look (drool) at :)

    just pulled a yummy shot of *1 of their ethiopian SOs

    must say the other coffee house i went to (bad beans :() looking for a tamper had never heard of "Pullman" tampers and tried to tell me about some guy in USA .... blah blah blah........ that should have set the waring bell ringing in my head...... I had a laugh ::)

    i did not buy a Pullman (need 53mm) but once i upgrade to something in the 58mm range, it will be a must have extra :)

    happy tamping

    Hi Leeham,

    Greg can do a 53mm in the Pullman Classic.

    Coffeelab design and Rattleware also do 53mm tampers.
