    Problems with crema

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi there in the past i used pregrinded coffee for my Gaggia coffee deluxe. With the pregrinded coffee the coffee was fine, but now i got a Brasilia rr45 grinder after some trials i manage to get extraction in between 25-30 secounds. Now the coffee tastes more intense it is better, but:
    I get more crem on the top but it seems to dissapear very fast, while i brew coffee i see good amount of crema coming out of the machine but that crema dissapears quick wich was not the case with the pregrinded coffee(than the crema staied on the top). What am i doing wrong?

    How fresh are your beans?
    i.e. Do you know the date they were roasted?

    Try some freshly roasted beans from one of the roasters on your left or a coffee roaster near your location that can assure you the beans are less than 3 weeks post roast. I, and many others here would bet your current supply of beans from your importer is stale. Good luck.

    Sounds like the perfect reason to buy some greens and start roasting your own! :) :) :)
