  • Quotable Quote:
    "I guess 99.9% of the world population who drinks their coffee without [this mod] is perfectly happy. So in HB, the answer should be yes, [this mod] is absolutely necessary and life-changing." --Ype, Is FOMO on pressure profiling justified?
  • Quotable Quote:
    "Even if that task is mundane and only seen as an obstacle to something else - such as washing dishes [ed: or making espresso] - focus on what you are doing right now and there will almost always be something to enjoy." --Henry (HH), How to find zen in espresso?
  • Quotable Quote:
    "This reminds me of the precision basket discussion. If your aim is to chase diminishing returns to the ends of the earth, I applaud you and wish you success, but I highly suspect many folks would enjoy their coffee more if the process were placed on a lower tier than the product." --Jake Groseclos, Why WDT this?
  • HB: Please welcome Espresso Forge to the HB sponsors! Rumor has it that they have a planned giveaway. If so, it would be in the Marketplace (hint, hint).
  • Quotable Quote:
    "If you drink sodas or eat many prepackaged foods, your perception of sweetness is screwed. You will never taste the sweetness in anything natural [like coffee] since you've been doing the equivalent to your taste to what standing next to jackhammer would do to your ears." --Jim Schulman, Can espresso actually taste sweet?
  • Quotable Quote:

  • Quotable Quote:
    "I think it is up to all viewers to recognize no one person can be expert in all areas and to appreciate their particular strengths. I look to people on HB who have lived with a certain product for several years for advice. They are some of the best sources for advice." --Dave (Bluenoser), James Hoffmann: Room For Dissent?

  • Quotable Quote:
    "There's a difference between reading that a machine weighs 70 pounds and picking up a machine that weighs 70 pounds." --Chris (Chrikelne), The worst feeling
  • Quotable Quote:
    "I keep thinking, maybe it's me. Clearly it is. I just don't like them. But I'm also not serving the fashionable lemon juice espresso that is all the rage these days." --Alan (Almico), Tried and failed to love VST baskets
  • Quotable Quote:
    "I remember buying bikes for my kids and I would tell them the most important thing is the color. If you want to get on it, you will ride it." --Michael (CarefreeBuzzBuzz), Why would you not buy a DE1?
  • HB: Welcome sponsor Urnex to HB! I've used their espresso cleaners for years. They've also introduced a new bio-friendly version of their popular Cafiza that's phosphate free. Clean equipment => better espresso.
