    Naked Pour Critique Please

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I have no idea if this is just OK, acceptable, or better?
    There are no squirts of water or worse.
    Is the slow coming together of the pour into a single flow a sign of less than ideal distribution and tamping?

    Pour is good, but the colour looks off maybe. A tad on the brown side rather than reddish.

    Great, thanks. What might cause that?

    The beading is very even, every so slightly doughnut like (outside first) but better than mine! There is a slight dead spot in the centre to begin with, but it comes together reasonably quickly. If it happens every time you could look at your distribution but as a one off its nothing to write home about. I think the colouring is due to less lighting upward on the bottom of the basket, so the shadow is causing some slightly off colour rendering. All in all no obvious flaws, it's about the trends from here out.

    Haha. So many variables including too hot. Roast profile. Bean variety.

    Thanks for the comments. Yeah the lighting is a bit off.
    Seems I'm on the right tram with my prep

    Damn, I read the thread title and thought 'this could be a bit exciting', only to have my hopes dashed on viewing the video.

    1. Grind finer.

    2. Do everything else the same.

    Roger will do extraction time is 29 sec for 36g so a finer grind wouldnt hurt

    Hmmm, maybe not by much then, depends how it’s tasting. I wouldn’t want to extraction time to be much longer. Maybe 32sec at the most.

    From what point do your start timing? I counted from first beading and it's like 15secs, dont see the end of the shot in the video though, that's just counting in my head, so no way scientifically precise.

    I always start the timer when I raise the lever, so timing includes pre-infusion +/- 8 sec. The vid has been edited to remove the "boring bits" at the start and end.
    NB a finer grind resulted in a 34 sec pour, darker colouring, and no perceptible change in taste (still excellent)

    Cool, all looks rather delicious to me, finer would be my preference too - subject to tasting of course.

    Flashpixx is spot on. Timing is from the moment you press a button, move a lever, turn on a switch --whatever sets the pump going.

    On my machine, I know I'm going to be in trouble if more than 8 seconds elapse before I see coffee dribbling out of the spout.

    Hello,
    Can someone critic my pour please. I can see some squinting 6 o'clock is it my tamping? It is a 21g basket, extraction pressure is approx 11. Machine lelit Victoria.

    More detailed information about your preparation process, coffee type, roast depth, weight of coffee in the basket, brew ratio being aimed for... would all be helpful...

    Yes, you definitely have a dose/distribution problem going on and the brew pressure is a little high. Could be adjusted down using a blind basket to a reading of 9.5-10 Bar on your brew pressure gauge before you do anything else.

    Thanks,
    I will check in again. I don't have any scale to measure the dose, just base on how high the filling level. Beans is roasted on 25th Oct. So if it still within 1 week of roasting.
    Anyone has any idea how to adjust the brew pressure on lelit Victoria?
