New "CD tower"
Determined to not spend this summer without one, I took the plunge today.
So, (having posted my first interweb photos ever) this is a Romeo cold drip tower, which is a good compact size and fits in with our light coloured timber around the place.
On the right Romeo is at work producing a lovely strong 500ml batch of Sidamo (Small Batch Hunkute).
what I've really liked about this, aside from the coffee itself, is the involvement in the process. Once set up, I watched it, timed it, stuck a teaspoon between the middle and lower vessel and sampled it, went to IGA, made bolognese, changed the drip speed on a few occasions, etc etc.
so I can say that I'm really happy with my new addition. Just wanted to share , really.
oh , and a question. Although I was happy with my first result, a light roast is best?
plunger grind? And... About 3 1/4 hours for the 500 ml batch sound right?
Oh , it is sitting on a bench, not stuck to a wall as my now apparent sideways photos might have you think.
What operating system/version are you using "sbm"?

after putting photos on another thread today though, I think I've worked it out. I think I've got to use the device "horizontally", and with the "bottom" to the right.
Here's what remains of my first cd batch. Feels like a luxury to have it on hand!
Hooray! It worked. As I'm posting it always shows the image the right way up. It's only after I've posted that they rotate.
