    The Creme

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I am having trouble getting a good amount of creme on top of the espresso. Can you help. We have a Saeco automatic machine.

    Re: The Creme

    Wrong forum aatrev unless you are roasting your own beans. A question that needs to be ask is where are you getting your beans from? If it is a supermarket then there is your problem. Beans that have been roasted less than a month ago are the go

    Hi aatrev and welcome to CS!

    Youre in the right forum, just that you posted in the wrong section, and no doubt a Mod will move it.

    In answering your question, I am guessing that your Saeco is a recent acquisition. It might help to accept that automatic machines are designed for convenience. I think that the quality of the coffee produced is often the manufacturers secondary concern in the design. Its not to say you cant make an ok coffee with what you have, just dont expect it to be great.

    As for the crema it produces, as flynnaus said, a supply of freshly roasted beans will certainly help, not just with crema, but flavour too.

    If you could provide some more detail, eg. your experience with the Saeco, coffee currently used, etc. it will help members provide you with more specific advice.

    Cheers!
