    Another Bezzera Galatea from Supreme Roasters

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Picked her up last Thursday but I have been so busy making coffee after coffee that I havent posted pics yet! * ;)

    Visited Roger at Supreme Roasters about 2 weeks ago and from the second I walked in I couldnt take my eyes off the Galatea. It is such a beautiful machine (so hard to photograph though) I had decided before I even got home that i had to have it.

    The first day I turned it on it took 4 shots before I dialed in rocky and pulled about 6 great shots in a row, was stocked (and looking like this -> *:D )

    Since then I have had good and not so good days - trying to keep consistency and am getting there, its a very easy machine to use.

    So a big shout out to Roger, could not be happier with his service, the man is very passionate about his coffee. Also love the beans - Mocha Java is my favorite but also love the supremo & espresso. Will be seeing you soon Roger to upgrade Rocky & pick up some more beans! *:)

    Some pics...

    I am the only male in my family and when I need a mirror due to being out-manoeuvred in the bathroom
    I use the Galatea as my mirror ;D

    Hi Carlie

    Thank you so much for the kind words. You are great fun to deal with and its great to see someone who has travelled so far in their coffee journey! Ill give you 6 months till you buy your second machine (2-1) or own a cafe. ;)

    Looking forward to catching up as your Compak K3 Elite is just calling your name!

    Hope the Domus Galatea brings you much joy, happiness and caffiene fixes!

    Will have some new Single Origins for you to try if you drop around this afternoon or the next couple of days.

    Re: Another Bezzera Galatea from Supreme Roasters

    Hi All, I picked up my new grinder (Compak K3 Elite) from Roger last Monday - geez I have drank alot of coffee this week! *:D

    Such a great grinder - very easy to use. Thankfully I have had last week and this week off work so been playing alot.

    Another big thanks to Roger - once again top service. Enjoy dropping in - you may need to start kicking me out at a decent time though! *;D

    Anyway here are some pics of my setup...

    I also have this one-it is a thing of beauty!
    When I first had it the boiler pressure sat at about 1.35 bar, but I had it lowered to 1.25 bar with slightly better results.
    I have also found the following trick works well for my palate (produces a slightly acidic style)-
    Prior to locking in the portafilter I run about 5 seconds of water through the group (more if it has been idle for a longer time).
    I then open the steam valve enough to get the pressure to sit on one bar for about 4 seconds. Then I lock and pull the shot. The pressure bounces back up so quickly it is at 1.25 as I pull the shot.
    I suspect I am merely doing a slightly more elaborate cooling flush, but the results are a touch more consistent for me. It doesnt make sense to me why this would be so, but its fun to experiment with these variables.. :)
