    Bezzera grinder

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Well, I gave the Bezzera 004 a try and had great results at an inexpensive cost... but... after having read so much about the Mazzer mini I went back to my dealer and upgraded to the mini. *I thought that, if the upgrade to a Bezzera was that good, then, the Mazzer must be even better. *Since then I havent made a decent espresso. *Ive adjusted my grind fine and coarse from the factory setting, along with adjustment to my dose. *So far lousy results after a couple of weeks. *

    Tomorrow Ill upgrade my coffee since perhaps it is not as fresh as it could be. *Hey, it espresso was easy, everybody would be making it.

    Ok, I admit it, Im an idiot. Ive been using stale coffee. This morning I made the best ristretto ever, using freshly roasted Black Pearl coffee.

    So how is it coming along
    The fresh beans should have made a huge difference

    Yes, I thought it was my technique gone berserk but I made a terrific triple ristretto, following instructions I found on the Home-Barista site. The local roaster was on a vacation and the beans I purchased from other outlets were on the stale side so the new batch was an outstanding improvement.
