Loring vs other roasters energy usage

https://patents.google.com/patent/US5681607A/en There was quite a comprehensive patent filed with regards to this using super heated steam injected during roasting.

Dating vintage espresso machines [ANCC, Serial]

Not knowing, but it matches the dataplate as well... no date on the pressure gauge. Maybe they stamped a 57 by accident instead of a 56?! {image}

How long are coffee beans REALLY fresh?

I am in agreement with the statement above. From my experience, the lighter the roast the longer you have to let them rest before their full extraction potential can be achieved. This is the same for both espresso and filter methods. Generally, i would consider medium to light roasts fresh up to about 2 months or so.

Loring vs other roasters energy usage

Well, water has a rather high energy content. Letting steam out will let a lot of energy out and RoR would be low(er). If you kept the roaster covered and allowed some steam to be kept (somewhat higher millibar than the atmospheric pressure - like a combisteamer is designed to do) ROR would increase not due to steam conduction/convection but due to the fact that higher RH reduces evaporative cooli...

E61 Single Boiler PID Espresso Machine - Wiring How To

Thank you for pointing that out to me. The W switch has a light built in, but I guess I probably wired it wrong so it shorted. Or does the light have to be before the switch, in the red dot line segment?

I've never seen vertical kitchen counter top - everything must be held by magnets or bolted, right?

Loring vs other roasters energy usage

Another way of looking at Low ROR during drying is water vapour, drum roaster have the advantage of determining the rate by which moisture is lost during roasting. Low airflow causes low ROR because water vapour is not efficiently removed, as we know water limits the temperature rise, heated water becomes steam, trapped heated water becomes pressurized steam, until the water is removed the pressur...

What's going to happen when the C market goes up?

I wonder how roasters like Graffeo survive. It used to be the bees knees back 20 years ago and has since fallen off most lists. The LA location (oddly located near Rodeo drive) closed down but the North Beach location has been there forever. Is there a market segment we are oblivious to?
