Choosing the Best Coffee Maker to Suit Your Needs

1. Consider the space in your kitchen Choose coffee maker, go for a size that fit in the space that you have available. If you plan to leave it on the counter top, then ensure that the coffee maker fits on the available space. Avoid going for a large sized coffee maker if you have a small kitchen with little counter space because such a big appliance will take up so much space.   2. Think of storage If you plan to store the coffee maker in a kitchen cabinet, then you are better

Freshly roasted coffee beans

I don't know why I have to set my*grinder so much finer when I buy freshly roasted coffee beans from micro roasters ? When I open a bag of Lavazza beans where the beans were roasted 1 year ago, I can set my grinder much coarser. I wonder if the green beans from this micro roasters are too old? Freshly roasted yes, but fresh beans?

Eureka Mignon driving me crazy

I bought the Eureka Mignon grinder about 4 weeks ago, after being told by a sales man, that I need to replace my Rancilio Rocky grinder with a Eureka mignon. Well, my Rancilio Rocky never left mountains of ground coffee on my worktop and no, also not on his tray. I still have not managed to set my wanted grams of coffee with this stupid manual dial. And I can only set it for one cup. There are no two settings. How do I change the ground setting when there is no number, nothing to remind you ho

Anybody using PuqPress ?

Please don't laugh all you healthy strong home baristas. I was once healthy and managed to tamp hard enough. I don't know how many home baristas are out there who do have RSI, don't have enough strengths because of age or arthritis...but I am having serious problems to tamp. Any pressure on my wrists or fingers...is making my condition worse. The price of the PuqPress is shocking for a home barista, but what's the solution apart from a bean to cup fully automatic machine. Is anybody on thi

Rancilio Rocky doserless for sale

3.5 years old and hardly used. I didn't use the grinder for 6 months because I had a Tassimo machine. After that I only ground coffee for 2 shots per day. Very well looked after. However I had a magnetic timer attached to one side which left that area slightly scratched. Beautifully clean burrs. Regularly cleaned. In perfect working order. Due to disability I have to upgrade. Price : £150

BARistaBARBAR Barista Course Review

Hi Everyone,   I did this course on the weekend and honestly, I loved it!   Straight off the bat it was obvious Georgina (who was running the course) knew a lot about coffee and as a new coffee lover, she was easy to learn from without feeling over whelmed or feeling like I had no idea what was going on. She was able to cater to all the abilities in the class, from me (a newbie) to a cafe owner without making it feeling awkward or that she was trying to run two classes in one. Also she wa

Good Machine

HI, I'm new to the site and came across it as part of my research for a coffee machine. Having recently returned from a holiday in Australia where every cafe sold wonderful coffee i'm fed up with mediocre coffee sold in the UK. So i wish to buy a good machine. h Having tried many machines costing around £300 i've not yet found a machine that gives me the great coffee shop experience. I'm thinking of buying the Sage machine at c£500. Is this a good machine? would i be better investing in anot
