Under 25 posts Topic: Very little crema from an Elektra MicroCasa Semiautomatica
Forum: Espresso Discussions: Questions and Answers   Subject: Re: Very little crema from an Elektra MicroCasa Semiautomatica   Posted: Fri Mar 27, 2015, 8:44am

Preview: First assumption is you got plenty of crema from the La Pavoni, which would suggest it's not your beans. However, as I have never used a lever machine and don't really know much about how different they...

Forum: Coffee Discussions: Home Roasting Talk   Subject: Klatch, free shipping weekend, but not much offered anymore for greens.   Posted: Fri Mar 27, 2015, 8:34am

Preview: I used to buy greens from Klatch quite often since they used to offer a good selection.  Over the past few months, they've offered very few green coffees.  Today they have only four offered.  It's not...

Under 25 posts Topic: Floating grinds!
Forum: Coffee Discussions: Machines and Brewing Methods   Subject: Floating grinds!   Posted: Fri Mar 27, 2015, 8:31am

Preview: Even after stirring, rinds tend to float in both the Clever Dripper and/or Bonavita Immersion.  Admittedly probably less than 5%, however, is there a method to prevent that?  Thank you!

Forum: Espresso Discussions: Espresso Machines   Subject: Re: so to not "temp-surf"...only HX will do?? advice pls..   Posted: Fri Mar 27, 2015, 8:26am

Preview: On a HX machine: If you want it cooler, you flush longer. If you want it hotter, you flush shorter. Simple as that. That's not what is meant by temp surfing...but is indeed what causes the confusion in...

Forum: Coffee Discussions: Home Roasting Talk   Subject: Re: Would you french press coffee beans recommended for espresso?   Posted: Fri Mar 27, 2015, 8:13am

Preview: I've never met a properly roasted bean that I could not use on all brew methods. With this approach you need to learn how to adjust by taste though.  For example, Dark Matter's Unicorn Espresso Blend is...

Forum: Espresso Discussions: Espresso Machines   Subject: Re: Breville Dual Boiler BES900XL Owners Thread   Posted: Fri Mar 27, 2015, 8:11am

Preview: Those are pretty easy questions to answer Naic-  I think most here would call the Preciso 'adequate' and if your grinder is working then why not use it until it wears out!  As to which settings- well,...

Forum: Espresso Discussions: Questions and Answers   Subject: Re: Very little crema from an Elektra MicroCasa Semiautomatica   Posted: Fri Mar 27, 2015, 8:09am

Preview: Why do you care about crema? This completely baffles me as you say the shots taste good.  It's probably due to the lower brew pressure but I'm not a scientist.
