Decent Espresso news

Thanks for the explanation. Good to know it all. What do you mean Countersink as I'm not familiar with it, but I prefer taking precautions as well, esp. with possible water leaks. My line currently in use and connected direct to my La Spaz is a t-valve off a refrigerator water line so relatively low pressure. I've experience no issues....

Looking for a very flavorful medium to medium-dark roasted coffee

I think the grapefruit and other citrus notes will mellow with age, if they haven't already. I would experiment with a slightly lower pressure shot over a longer period of time and higher than usual extraction yield, too. This usually makes base notes pop for me.

Replicating cafe quality drinks - impossible??

Another great point; you sell the sizzle not the steak. My wife and I are definitely coming to your place for steak! But regarding the 'sizzle', I have found that over the years my latté art has definitely improved substantially and that when that art just pops right out there and has a big presence the coffee always tastes great...

Weber Workshop HG-2 teaser

Sure, happy to. The incident happened on July 21'st. I immediately contacted LWW via Instagram DM and followed up with an email. They responded within an hour on Instagram stating that it's a known issue on some of the first units, and said they could have it fixed very quickly as they have an improved gear. They followed up by...

Hands on experience with the Eagle One Prima

Hi there, just wanted to be sure, the Prima does not have the embedded scale feature that the regular Eagle One have right? Other than that is there any other missing feature?

Does your machine have a "stem" boiler?

That is odd, particularly since his speech seems otherwise normal. If I were doctor, just to be on the safe side, I'd requisition a CAT Scan of his brain 'Stem'.

Anyone tried a glass Kalita Wave dripper as a Melodrip/Gabi/Hario drip assist type tool?

something cheaper would be a phin filter or Vietnamese dripper. I've only seen metal ones so it might not work as well as you desire but they are a lot cheaper than stuff like an espro bloom or kalita wave

Would you replace these burrs?

Are you referring to the screw threads or just the screw heads being stripped? The burrs don't look like they're in ruff shape from what I'm seeing, unless I'm missing something. How does your espresso tastes with this grinder & burrs; is it slow to grind?
