Internal scorching is kicking my behind. Ideas?

Oh yea when I dropped these beans first crack is well under way but not quite done. Some beans were still cracking as I dumped them into the cooling box.

Bottomless portafilter for La Specialista?

Portafilters are usually specific to brands which is frustrating. You should be able to get a single wall basket that will fit your existing portafilter. That is where I would start. A lot of portafilters that are designed for double walled baskets also have a plastic distribution plate that you can remove to fit a deeper basket. Once you understand...

Lagom P64 Flat (Option-O)

It might depend on the roast level, dose, basket size (diameter, number of holes), I don't know. I use 20g, IMS H32 (32mm height) basket for DC (nominal 54mm diameter), omni-roast (light). Yesterday afternoon I swapped the burrs back to unimodal (taste suits me better). Actuall espresso setting with unimodal burrs (1st extraction after burrs swapping, have to fine tune...

Alternative to Niche Zero with DE1+

Wow, so much great input. Thank you, I appreciate it. Okay, I have no price reservations against other grinders like Lagom but as dreuben mentioned - I also doubt it is 2-2,5 times better than NZ and hence I also do not need to burn the money unnecessarily. My perfect grinder would be grinding like NZ, but directly into a...

"Best" Flat Bottom Dripper Showdown

Exactly - even "common" filters like V60, Kalita, Chemex and Aeropress are not generally available in regular grocery stores. My guess is Espro just wanted a different shape and were committed enough to make their own. Seems like the easier route would be to rely on someone else to supply filters. If they eventually stop producing filters at least you...

"Best" Flat Bottom Dripper Showdown

Isn't the Espro just a Kalita with more holes? Maybe different diameter? And didn't all filters start out as custom size? I have no clue who was first, but there was surely a point in time in which there was only one cone filter and only one cone filter type, same for v60 and Kalita. I appreciate company's innovating and...

[PROMO] LeverCraft Ultra Grinder

I'm also looking forward to seeing non-coated included in the comparison, since I can't see a good reason to have any coating at all in burrs for home use. I've got a modified MK burr set from Hansung that I might get him to re-grind, and he can strip the coating off it, too, so I might ask him to...

Internal scorching is kicking my behind. Ideas?

I tried to achieve the same yesterday and was a bit uncomfortable as some FC pops were still occurring when I dropped the coffee. I'll see tomorrow how it tastes. Was your first crack over when you dropped the beans and is it in general ok and a good idea to drop when first crack is not completely over yet?

[PROMO] LeverCraft Ultra Grinder

Seems real easy! How about the moving burr? I know how one could do it, but do you just leave it as is from factory or align that too? I have found that whilw SSP burrs are very precisely made the small errors when mounted stack up with the small errors of grinder parts so I can usually get a...

Australian Bo-Ema 2 Group Lever

Hi Ryan Congratulations, BOEMA piston levers aren't found that often and information and parts are a bit tricky. Boema in Sydney aren't interested in helping. They hold no information or parts. I have had mine over 20 years. BOEMA piston levers are a bit of an ugly duckling but are in the powerhouse museum as Australia's first ever build espresso...
