Mod/Upgraded Breville Bambino Experience

Thank you for more feedback, by "nothing made much of a difference" do you mean you couldn't get the Breville to succeed, or are you saying the Breville didn't taste a ton different than other options? As for standard baskets, I'd be using IMS basket and shower screen. So that may help a smidge. I'm not just trying to be...

The Londinium R24

Compressa can. Can't speak for LR24, since I don't own one. You can accelerate the warm up a little by flushing the group a couple of times. Putting the machine on a smart plug or other timer would allow you to turn it on (manually or automatically) in advance so it can warm up.

Grinding coffee beans stored in a frozen bean cellar without defrosting?

I plan to move the beans to storage 9 days after roasting, which is close to optimal in my experience. I use a Gene Cafe roaster, and ~9 days after roasting usually works well for both darker roasts (where it's the end of their "prime") and lighter ones (where it's the beginning). I normally roast to medium level, so it...

Lever Wanted

I'm not sure "over pay" is accurate for the used market. If you're looking at Kafatek grinders, which essentially sell for the price of a new one, the price is still fair. You're eliminating the difficult process of acquiring a new one, the very long wait, and the need to season the burrs. Those things are worth a premium. The...

Building a better Phin

I am a fan of the Vietnamese phin and I believe you can make a stellar cup if you know how to use it correctly. In fact all old school dripolators, German Walkure's use the same concept. Thang long brand in Amazon carries all sizes in one place and I believe it's called Fitzy shop. I bought all models 6cm(...

Grinding coffee beans stored in a frozen bean cellar without defrosting?

Perhaps the biggest factor in grinding frozen beans might be if frozen too soon post roast that they might not have had sufficient time to degas and properly age to optimal taste.

1953 Gaggia Classica 1 Group

I forgot to note two additional things from yesterday. as I was cleaning the piston I noted there was a decent amount of play between the rack piece screwing into the piston and the rack itself. The rack is a three piece assembly involving a pin that secures two pieces together. By design there is a little play where the...
