I was given a roaster... W600

obviously software will constantly be recording but it's interesting to do your own roast profile manually collecting the data. What exactly is collected in a roast profile anyway by something like artisan? drum and bean temp plus time are a given and maybe the limits of my unit (maybe manually noting the gas level too), but what else is there...

Lagom P64 Flat (Option-O)

I'm still in touch with Hayden and I'm allowed to quote from our today's e-mail to bring some light into the shipment: "We recently read about the posts on HB and just realised what was going on and the misunderstanding that has been going on. We just reached out to the other customer to explain, but we thought we should...

Versalab M3/M4 - Do you really not need WDT or RDT?

Terra - thanks for your insight! My M3 has been modded by me with a new board and motor so I'm currently running it at 280 rpm. The knob is silver near the bean cup. I only tried nutating because regular tamping gave me the outer ring first extraction which drove me nuts. I'm determined to continue experimenting my methods...

La Pavoni - First day issue resolution

DOW111 is indeed sticky itself if too much is applied. For those who lubricate everything often, how is the resistance when you raise the lever? Do you have to hold the base down? If so, how hard do you have to pull up on the lever? Getting the piston down is no problem, it feels pressurized well. But I have...

Versalab M3/M4 - Do you really not need WDT or RDT?

In the coffee szene, there is fundamental prov that a leveling tool is counter productive regarding TDS and extraction. Reduce the speed to ~380 RPM on that brass potentiometer screw and you will see that this has a huge impact on reducing channeling. You can get a laser RPM reader from Amazon for 20 bucks.

Had an amusing observation this morning. For whatever reason (don't know what I did wrong, I was pretty sleepy) I pulled the ugliest bottomless shot I've seen in years on my Robot this morning. It had sort of a super spritzer, a really fast channel that never did heal until I ended the shot. Now I'm not a believer in...

How long do you REST your roast ?

A couple threads on this topic for your reference: "How long after coffee is roasted should I wait to brew" "Rest Period for Freshly Roasted Coffee" Seems like the best approach is to test this with your roasts by cupping to see where your personal sweet spot is. I drink pour-overs, roast light and store in canning jars. I rest...

Steam boiler sucking waste water from drip tray

[quote="Espressionado" Any suggestions to get rid of the bad smell? I fear that I will damage something if I keep on descaling it. I have considered using sodium percarbonate, which should clean it out, but again I am concerned that it will corrode some of the components[/quote] I don't think sodium percarbonate would hurt it, and it might help to...
