Tony's Coffee

My SB and CC order should be arriving soon. What are you all using as extraction parameters for these two? I've seen two posted, but I'm curious if anyone is deviating much from these

Pietro by Fiorenzato - vertical flat-burr manual grinders

58mm burrs with multipurpose and filter-specific options Lots of colors and finish options No info on pricing I just hope it's more practical to use than the other flat-burr manual grinder that's currently available, the OE Apex. {link}

80mm burrs experience (SSP, Ditting, EG1, Ultra, Uber...)

The Weber core is a different burr not made by ssp. Only webers ultra burr is made by ssp. It would be more fines than all the ssp 80mm burrs, ie more traditional. I was told by Hansung it's more like HU > LU = ULF. The ULF apparently produces similar fines at brew, but maybe don't work

80mm burrs experience (SSP, Ditting, EG1, Ultra, Uber...)

I don't know sorry. I admit that is not a helpful reply. I only have experience with the lab sweet and the SSP that I have which are apparently LU. The LU are cleaner than the lab sweets, but I have no idea how they compare to ode w/ SSP or the other SSP or Ditting machined burrs. I wish

Cafelat Robot day 1 issues - Help needed

That is true, you have to push either way. With the arms up, the snapping is a bit more subtle than with the arms down. So my hope was that, due to beginner unfamiliarity, I was probably pushing too aggressively causing the basket to lose alignment. However, I did a couple of tests this morning and that was not the

Does total dissolved solids determine sour/bitter balance in espresso?

There's also how the TDS is diluted. At high concentrations I believe our ability to taste character notes is distorted. I think of it like barrel concentration single malt Scotch. Have it straight and you could miss a lot of what's in there. Stretch the concentration by diluting it with a bit of water and the

Update on Fellow Ode with SSP burrs for espresso? Burnt out motors?

I have also wondered about this. That combo certainly works for espresso - but I have mostly been avoiding it because at least with dense, light roasts the Ode can shake violently while grinding for espresso, almost to the point of tipping over. There's about 0,5g of retention at such a fine setting as well (RDT, no bellows). Motor
