My humble home setup. Nice to have a corner space.

Welcome to HB.

That's a fine looking coffee corner and setup!
How's the coffee?

Thanks! The coffee is getting better, or at least more consistent, as I learn more. I certainly do enjoy my morning routine a lot!

What roasting during an AZ sunrise looks like running Artisan 2.1. Espresso fueling the fire:

I found this well preserved Astoria SAE-1 Jun and spruced it up a bit. Thus a change in the home setup.

Grinder upgrade. I was thinking about getting the Eureka Mignon Speclialita which certainly would have fit better on the counter, but I came across a deal I couldn't pass up on a lightly used Zenith 65e and it fits under the cabinet with at least half a mm to spare.

Now that it's nearly dialed in I'm getting a 16gram dose for the Bezzera Family Lever in about 4.75 seconds. I'm hoping I can use the other setting to get the 18 gram dose for the Brewtus. It wants a finer grind, but I'm hoping once I get to know this grinder I'll have enough sense of the offset between the two espresso machines to be able to switch between them fairly quickly.

Sweet setup! I see you have the roaster vented out of you sliding door. Does it still smell up the house?

Thinking about getting into roasting in an apt. Just curious.

All I can say is that everyone loves the smell when they walk in, whether it's during roasting or after. One issue for you is that I would not use propane with the tank inside an apartment. My tank is outside. In the sliding door is a 2 x 6 with three holes, two for the venting and one for the gas

New grinder - new arrangement.

William is for my favorite light roasted beans. Breville is for dark Italian blends and alternatives.
