Huky Roast and Learn ... Prisoner exchange edition

LPG is a mix of Propane and Butane, Butane does not cope well with low temperature (needs more energy to evaporate), therefore there usually is a winter and a summer mixture for LPG. Try switching to pure Propane, that copes far better with the cold

OTOH... 140K subs in such a short amount of time is pretty impressive. People clearly seem to enjoy the approach and changing it to be something he's not could backfire. What you're seeing is the real him, and authenticity is very engaging

Londinium R24 vs. ACS Vostok

Hoping to learn more about this machine as used in the US. Clearly it's gorgeous, and can make amazing espresso. Wondering how it achieves temp stability in the group. The website says just walk up and pull a shot no temp management needed. How does that work - surely it is an HX machine? I have used an HX for

TBH, at first blush your enthusiasm in your reviews gave me pause. Your clarification that you don't post a review if you don't like the product helped clear that up somewhat. Furthermore, the way you have responded here to the critical comments seems genuine and honest. So I think you did well to respond in the way that you

Passenger Recommendations

What kind of coffee and roasts are you into? I have experience with their range and can make some recommendations. My top 3 are: - Montecarlos El Salvador - Brazil Daterra - Burundi Heza for something lighter and brighter A lot of their reserve lots are very lightly roasted and are better off for pour

Debating between 1Zpresso JX Pro and Lagom P64/Niche

I used to follow you on YouTube but I have since unsubscribed from your channel. You lost me when you started this attack on Comandante and were pushing 1Zpresso pretty hard.

ECM Synchronika owners

If you grab the joystick shaft with a narrow-jaw pliers, you can tighten the knob so that it stays put. Just tightening it without doing this, the shaft rotates before the knob is sufficiently tight. Since I did this, I've not had to tighten the knobs; before that, I got in the habit of giving them a regular clockwise twist

Seemed a bizarre review to me. It doesn't have the right burrs to do espresso... how can it be reviewed as an espresso grinder? Would make more sense to wait til those burrs are available and installed. But I guess the race to be first was paramount
