Decaf Coffee Suggestions Revisited

Hi everyone, Since this thread... "Decaf Coffee Suggestions" ...has been closed I thought I would revive it with a new one. I recently had the chance to enjoy a bag of Presidio Decaf Espresso from Dune in Santa Barbara and it was remarkable. I used it for filter coffee and it's excellent. High level of sweetness, and notes that are relatively present and distinct for a Decaf. Plus no &qu...

Mazzer Mini upgrade to SSP 64mm burrs?

Your parts list is correct and would fit your machine, but I would recommend either spending your money on 58mm SSP burrs instead or just getting a different grinder... the mini manual grinders often suffer from stalling under load when trying to turn aggressive 64mm burrs. I got my used SJ for cheaper than the cost of the burr carriers you listed, and with the momentum I'm seeing in high quality ...

Keeping your brew area clean?

No, works with my brushes. I have seen different size brushes so if one is too large try another. As to the space, it's actually my preference. Everything ends up in arms reach without shuffling back and forth.

Onyx Coffee Advent Calendar 2019

Not sure if it will help, but my recipe was 19g (after sifting) with the Forte BG and 300mL water on a Stag X using a Kalita 185 filter. I don't remember what my drawdown was, but I believe it was more than 2:40. Temp on my kettle was 96C

Post a pic of your home espresso setup...

Nice water setup. Water meter is nice feature. Some day I will buy Bianca. And will copy this idea for sure :)

Faema Marte restoration

Thanks Paul! I'm going to take one of the forks of my Urania and see if they are identical, so I can take measurements from that one. Never a dull moment when working on an espresso machine :-)

New Fellow Ode 64mm flat brew grinder (Kickstarter)

If they get the alignment right and it's compatible with SSP burrs, this could be a great grinder fir not a lot of money. I like the design too, and it appears to be quite small.

Rate of acceleration depending on grinder used

Clumps is not the reason for WDT in this case, but rather to mix the grounds since the first beans not subject to popcorning will grind differently to the last beans left in the hopper. Could be something more in play because even handgrinders seem to benefit from WDT. Getting back to the original question.. I think a difference in pour characteristics was mentioned already in the Titan Grinder Pr...

New Kinu M47 Traveler

If you adjust the grind setting a few notches finer and you are prepared to grind for twice as long, you should get an espresso grind. Since the ground particle distribution changed you might also want to adjust the dose and time.
