    Hi Robin, I'm a fan of syrupy, drippy pours and am happy if I don't see a single stream until the 6th to the 12th second ......... but I don't use such a small filter. But I gave it a...

    cafelazio liked post by herzog On thread : What milk is best for espresso based coffees?
    A ratio of 90% milk is getting into Starbucks territory. Regardless of which brand of milk you go with, using less of it is the best thing you can do to improve the flavour. Try for about 50...

    Well, P1 and P2 are identical at the start. At the moment I use 400 P2 B to start (just because), switch to 75% with 8 minutes to go, back off to 50% at first crack, and after a minute or so then to...

    More research on this forum tells me to go slower in the dry phase for Brazils, so I took the basic outline of my successful roasts above, and reduced the heat early on leading to the following...

    I am using the API aquariums PH and GH/KH water test kits, which are pretty cheap. They come with a 5ml volumetric graduated vial and you count the number of drops to get to a colour change - it's a...

    cafelazio liked post by knastoer On thread : Organically vs conventionally grown beans
    Exactly, and that was kind of my point. But other ideologies have failed, and capitalism seems to be successful (with plenty of inequality to keep it going), though some would argue that we are...

    I guess capitalism among equals is fine, but when someone's more or less defenseless it can turn very ugly if there's no regulation other than the market.

    Well said Andy! And non disclosure is a great strategy. Organic certification is a first world problem and a coffee grower's nightmare. I'm continually asked these (similar) questions, mostly by...

    Learning about dialing in and extraction using stale beans is a waste of time IMO. The stale beans just dont behave anything like freshly roasted coffee. Cheers
