    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hello all and HNY.

    Some of you might remember my paranoid rants before Xmas about getting my coffee right. Well, the good news is that while Im a long, long way from getting great consistent results, Ive managed with the help of you lot to get a decent cup MOST of the time.

    The clue to my success is that my wife now hassles me to make her a coffee whenever the machines on and that has never happened before.

    Im hoping to iron out some of my consistency problems with a 1 on 1 session with Tim Adams from Pioneer in February. Im sure my problem is in the grind and dosing.

    Cheers all and thanks,

    Yeah, we remember ;) ;D

    Sounds like you are being hard on yourself Tony:decent cup MOST of the time, SWMBO demanding coffee. That tickes two boxes. The rest is experience and refinement. The training wont hurt - try to do it on your machine if you havent already planned that but I think even professional baristi dont get 100% consistency.

    That actually sounds pretty good so far, and Im sure some training will help even more.

    Ive had my new machine for a while now, and Im still improving my shots as I find ways. I nakeded a group handle a couple of weeks ago, and the resulting extra information about the pour has led to some tamping changes that are improving whats in the cup.

    Enjoy the trip.
