Latte Heart Size

I believe the county ordinance specifies a minimum lot size of 40,000 square feet, which comes to a bit under 1 acre.

Display Digital Tamper

I love it! While I agree with the others who said the "automatic" leveling and spring-loaded tampers make it easy for motorically challenged baristas to tamp properly, your gadget, which does look a bit challenging to use at first will actually help train and improve the barista's tamping skills, skills that will transfer to his or her use of the

I'm stumped! Hopefully it doesn't sour you on B&W altogether, they're probably my favorite specialty roaster

La Marzocco Linea Micra

Hi, My micra arrived this afternoon ! I love it ! No plastic smell. I tried a couple of shots, the first was not good, the second was great after dialling the grinder. I'll try the latte tomorrow. [img] {link}[/img]
