    New "CD tower"

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    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"?

    I'm not sure if this answers it, but I'm using an iPod.

    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.

    let's see...image.jpg


    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.
