As everyone knows to buy a VST Refractometer is a great investment and for the few times that it will be utilized it does come at great cost. However it is a great tool for diagnosing issues and fundamental problems during prep and extraction of espresso. There is a great deal of study done by Socratic Coffee and the benefits of a Refractometer especially in commercial settings. This tool is also ideal in a home setting as well where establishing routine and predictability is necessary. I would like to announce that if anyone is interested in renting the latest VST Coffee Lab III Refractometer, you can PM me. Please do not reply to this thread.
