Crown Jewel Roasting thread -Ecuador Pichincha Galo Morales Natural Typica & Sidra

Handmade coffeemachine

I have tested my machine for last 3 monthes and sometimes it was errors with pressure and temperature. Finally I have found the reason: the heater element insulation failure.

High end grinder update time

The Nautilus is way beyond OP's budget. Is your Major a doser model (and do you singledose) or a GOD model? The Major in itself is a pretty good grinder already and the Ceado won't be an upgrade. Only downside if you own a GOD Major is the massive retention. My main question at this point

Budget $1,000-$1,500: Upgrading manuals to electric grinder/espresso machine

I had to smile at the outcome of this thread. A budget of $1500 ended up being double. Just FYI. I'm still a newbie but have had a Niche and Sette side by side. For me the taste in the cup was really close. Too close for me to tell apart in most cases. While the Niche grinds
