Sey Coffee

I tend to get that note with a lot of coffees that are super light from commercial roasters. There are a few exceptions. I did a roast vision 29 Ethiopian recently that tasted very floral and tea-like without any notes of underdevelopment. I know Sey is known for very light coffees so maybe that note comes with

La Marzocco Linea Micra owner reviews

That's perfect - thank you! I'm surprised the break-even point is only 25 minutes, but that really helps in determining how to program the machine. Since I don't have mine yet, can you confirm one more thing for me? It's my understanding that you can only program one start and stop time daily, so if I wanted

Option-O Mizen 64mm Omni burrs for Lagom P64

I loosely experimented with RPM and I came to the same conclusion as the P64 instruction's recommendations: Mizens at speed 6 for espresso tasted the best, below or above I found my shots seemed lacking in some way. Has anyone else found their recommended settings pretty much spot on? Mind you I've only had my grinder for

Experience with Weber Unibasket

I've just watched a vid on the Tube with Mr Weber and he's very convincing. I've just recently purchased an EG1 after selling some body parts that were surplus on EBay Syria...a totally ridiculous cost but it wasn't compulsory and he's in business to make money.. I LOVE it!! Here in New Zealand the Unifilter works out to be

IMS Competition Basket B582TH22 for Olympia Cremina

I have a new Cremina SL with baskets included, plus a new stock Olympia spare basket, and a basket that came with a new stock Olympia bottomless portafilter. All three appear identical to two baskets I just received with a new Strietman CT2. All perform about the same as well - tried to identify the best one with no luck

Sey Coffee

Having just tried Sey for the first time, I'm wondering if i got a bad bag, or of this is just the style. The coffee is a washed Colombian, 3 weeks off roasting. The whole beans smelled vegetal, the grounds smelled vegetal. After cooling, in the cup is a prominent citrus acidity, decent sweetness, very thin body and a

Filter system recommendation for Edmonton Alberta water

That's pretty nice tapwater. It's hard enough that some form of softening would be prudent, and the low chloride ion and 100+ mg/L alkalinity would make a decarbonizer like the BWT bestmax a reasonable choice. The water report indicates a GH of about 180 mg/L as CaCO3 and a KH of about 130 mg/L as CaCO3. In
