  1. When you operate as an authority in the public domain you automatically have a responsibility to both those you write about and those who you expect to read your writing. Unless you are an autocrat. Sent from my MI 8 using Tapatalk
  2. So Dave, this is an unusual announcement, or appears to be. There is, between the lines, implication that either the roaster has a problem, or there has been disagreement between yourself and the manufacturer. I think you owe it to both the readers here and to the manufacturer to clarify. Sent from my MI 8 using Tapatalk
  3. Profile 1.5... That doesn't mean anything with the Kaffelogic. The profiles have names and the number denotes the degree. Perhaps he tried to create his own profile... I've put quite a few roasts through mine and haven't seen an uneven result like that... Oh, and the standard load is 100g to 120g,so he's quite light on that.
  4. Thanks for your reply, I will experiment further.
  5. And here is what Kaffelogic have to say... https://kaffelogic.com/index.php/home/howto/resting
  6. OK, so rested and sealed from any oxygen? Oxidation can do a lot of damage in 30 days. There is only one way to find out. I will roast a batch and seal it away for 30 days then report back.
  7. Never less than 2 weeks old? Really? I've recently purchased a Kaffelogic roaster and am enjoying learning about the subtleties of profile variation. Of note is that Kaffelogic hold that fresher is best, and that means consume within 2 or three days and roast regularly. They quote Scott Rao on this. I'm finding that at day two or three I'm getting the best results, after that things begin to flatten out. Certainly no age related effects on flow consistency.

  8. Its another world entirely. Definitely better tasting but the ability to vary the profiles and assess the result is fantastic. Example. I have a couple of kilos of a Brazil Santos bean. In the Behmor it was meh. In the kaffelogic on the default profile it was still meh. Then I found a contributed profile on the kaffelogic forum that was a light roast targeting Brazilian beans. Bingo. Fantastic results.
  9. While we wait for Dave I can report that I bought one a week ago. Oh wow. I was using a Behmor which now looks like a very blunt instrument. I have learnt more about roasting in the past 10 days than I had in the last 15 years. The webinars that Kaffelogic have been running give so much insight into what is going on... The result in the cup is very very good.
  10. You have 1g variability and a "pile" of grounds falls out in between uses? You have a fault of some sort. Even if I bump mine to get any residual to fall out it's a tiny amount, a fraction of a gram. Sent from my MI 8 using Tapatalk
  11. I have personal experience. The factories I deal with were shut down for a time by govt decree. They are now working again but with limited capability and their backlog and lead times are much longer than usual. With another supplier I had an order in at the beginning of Chinese New Year. This has just been shipped this week as all logistics services were suspended during the peak of the virus infections there. Sent from my MI 8 using Tapatalk
  12. Yep. That's what we've been drinking and enjoying. Sent from my MI 8 using Tapatalk
  13. I recently posted my experience here... https://coffeesnobs.com.au/general-coffee-related/30610-whats-wrong-lavazza-coffee.html There is also a longish thread on these beans on Home Barista forums. Sent from my MI 8 using Tapatalk
  14. Hi, no I don't have a MeCoffee. I was interested at one time, but the lack of reliability and support put me off. Good luck.
  15. It looks like a voltage regulator. Unlikely to be fixable without the manufacturer engaging.
