    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    My immersion Brew method involves a 5lt food grade container (Bunnings) 500g Ethiopian natural single origin. 2+lt of water to make 2lt of concentrate which I then dilute with 2lt if water in my keg.
    I strain this using a strainer plus mesh (I am looking at picking up the bag from this https://ikegger.com/collections/sale...w-coffee-maker to make the process easier)
    I normally squeeze out extra fluid from the, however today I let it sit and slowly drip out over 3 + hours (agitating every so often to increase drip/flow rate. I wonder if this is going to produce some cold Brew, cold drip hybrid ��

    Just saw this on Brooklyn Nine Nine and it reminded me of when I made my first batch of cold brew (except the room temperature thing!)

    giggled like a schoolgirl! That’s classic. My boss at the cafe could relate as he had a couple of moments when we were developing our cold brew last year where he thought to himself- “s@#t I’ve just drunk a lot of coffee!”

    HAHAHAHA...Ask Andy about his first experience with cold brew/press. I'd brought some with me not only for the journey but for him to taste as well. I pulled out the container of it and handed it to him and turned back to get more makings for it and by the time I turned around he'd already poured a hefty cup of it, sipped for a taste, liked it, and polished off the rest of the cup, finishing the 150ml or so of it as I turned back to him. As he started commenting on the nice acidity level and flavors etc I just stood there with a dumbfounded look on my face and as he noticed I started laughing. "Dude! Do you realize how much coffee you just drank!?!" "What do you mean?" "That was my concentrate!!! You just swigged down the equivalent of somewhere around 10 shots of espresso!!!" Great hilarity ensued! HAHAHAHAHA

    So, anyone used a Mazzer Mini to grind for cold brew? I know it's an espresso grinder, but figure if set coarse enough, should do a reasonable job for large volumes. Our poor little Baratza Encore can only last so long grinding 2kg of beans at a time..

    Grinders like the Mazzer you refer to above can grind to what ever size you want. It is at the espresso end of the scale that tests the mettle of what a grinder is capable of, not the coarser end of the scale...

    Few grinders will be capable of grinding 2Kg of beans in a single session though. The "Duty Cycle" on the nameplate will tell you what is possible otherwise you will risk overheating and burning out the motor.

    Good point, probably smarter to grind in multiple smaller batches, but will look i ti that. Though I suspect the Mazzer Mini is far more capable of larger batches than a Baratza Encore. Thanks for the tip, though, eill help with keeping the grinder in good shape, and certainly whilst I did consider the afffect of it overheating on the beans, I did not think of the motor.

    Ah, no...

    No typical commercial or prosumer grinder can be used in the way you are describing.
    If you think you're going to be grinding these sorts of quantities, then you need to look at industrial rated grinders such as a Mahlkonig or Ditting grinder. These will do what you want very comfortably...

    Ditting and Mahlkonig are well and truly out of our budget right now, sadly. I do agree with your point, though.

    THE ULTIMATE cold brew / cold drip thread

    Get a Bunn or Mahlkönig shop grinder. They start at around $1000 which is money well spent to be able to do what you want to do. Nothing else is really worth considering, including the Mazzer Mini.

    Been searching for Bunns forever, they simply seem impossible to find with 220v/60Hz. Malkönig shop grinder is one I've not even heard of. Google time...

    Grindmaster is another good brand for a shop/bulk grinder. A bit over 13 years ago I managed to score a very lightly used Grindmaster 875 demo unit which has been in regular use ever since grinding 2.5kg Cold Press batches as well as all my non-espresso (Siphon, Aeropress, Pourover, Filter, French Press, etc.) grinding needs. Its' burrs are guarranteed for over 13,600kg so it's unlikely I'll ever need to replace them.

    Been doing a bit of searching, but not sure I know which model you are referring to re the Mahlkonig -do you mean like a Guatemala, or Kenya

    Mahlkönig is a brand of grinder, not coffee beans.
