Manhattan Luna Bermudez

Of course I used an espresso extraction but I would imagine that 17g in and about 240-260g of water at somewhere in the vicinity of 200 degrees maybe would be great in a pour over

Manhattan Luna Bermudez

I just noticed how old this post was so I doubt you still have the same batch. Lol, that was my experience if you do wind up getting more. How did your experience work out? What dose, time and output did you find most enjoyable? Thank you

Manhattan Luna Bermudez

I had some of the Letty Bermudez last year and enjoyed it very much. I have not tried the Luna Bermudez. For what it's worth I preferred to use a 17g dose and pulled out about 2 to 1 or even a little more and it had an amazing peach flavor that I still think about. I would aim

VBM Domobar Super Digital

Isn't the steel more costly to mold and shape though? And thus in the end more costly to use in a machine. I thought this was why basically every low end machine don't use stainless steel now (including Profitecs AFAIK). And weren't there cases of the electro-plated tin in copper/brass boilers flaking?

Spong grind retention

First post on this site, happy to have found it. Based on the "Spong Coffee Mills: A Grinder for the 23rd Century" thread I found a Spong No4. Having used it for a few times I can conclude that there is a massive grind retention in my unit. 14 grams goes in, 8 comes out. I know others have posted
