Understood... just having some fun at your expense.

Seriously, will let others chime in... but if buying pre-ground you will have to work with dose amount, tamping, etc. to account for being unable to dial-in the grind for the machine.

Offer was real... if you get your machine, I can let you borrow a manual grinder... grinding just before is the way to go...

Well... so much for ordering a small bag of Rescue Freedom... I liked it a lot... 1 kilo it is...

Down to my last 1lb of Lionshare... so ordering some more of that as well...

I need to let my father-in-law make his own coffee... this situation of me making all the espresso at home is depleting my stash wayyyyy too fast. :lol:

SO saw me wearing the t-shirt and commented on how nice it looks........ so I ordered a bag of Ethiopia Yirgacheffe and requested a XS for her. What a score! Thank you very much for offering them, they look great, and they are VERY soft compared to other t-shirts.

Back to the Yirgacheffe.... anyone tried pulling it for espresso? If so, what parameters did you finally arrive at? At least 5 days rest, I'd imagine too?
