  1. 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.
  2. Thanks for your reply, I will experiment further.
  3. And here is what Kaffelogic have to say... https://kaffelogic.com/index.php/home/howto/resting
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. Yep. That's what we've been drinking and enjoying. Sent from my MI 8 using Tapatalk
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. It looks like a voltage regulator. Unlikely to be fixable without the manufacturer engaging.
  14. This product is a lost cause. The silence and poor communication is a sign that the guy knows his product is flaky and he can't handle the burden of development and support that is required. He's ducking his responsibility and hoping the whole thing will go away. No-one should be buying this product.
  15. Probably ok if the laminate isn't touching a hot surface. Get the fr4 175 degree rated material. I don't think there is much cost difference.
  16. Pcb laminate will degrade with time if it gets too hot. You can buy it in a high temperature rated version though. What about ceramic fibre blanket?
  17. Good decision on the USB. Reliability rules.

  19. Are you slip casting the ceramic?
  20. Group head cover - I see mention of black anodized aluminium... The dye used in this process has a tendency to change to a purple and fade over time... And these machines should look good for a very long time. A custom powdercoat may be a better choice.
  21. So have they updated the design with V3? Do you know when V3 was released? Their website has no information on revision history.
  22. OK, all done. Removed unnecessary parts and cleaned everything. Reassembled with the cocktail shaker top fitted. I used an M5x16mm stainless bolt to fasten the shaker. It needed the shaker's centre hole opened out with a 5mm drill first. Great mod!
  23. Here is the inside of mine ...
  24. OK, I can see differences. My Mazzer (Super Jolly) has more stuff sitting on top of the sweeper vanes showing in yours. This will mean the shaker top sits up higher. Also the screw you mention that screws into the threaded section shown, you refer to 1.6cm length, the one on mine is much shorter. I have a 16mm stainless button head screw here and even that is too short the way it is. I need to disassemble to the state you show in your photo, and then fit the shaker top...
  25. Measured it overall as 14.5 cm tall by 6.8cm Max diameter. The top section with the push on cap removed is about 5.8cm tall.
