    This morning's shot

    Tend to agree with you sir !
  3. Guy problem sorted... Combination of quickly aged beans and incorrect setting during the build of my "coffee corner".... (basically reset the entire system)
  4. I get my beans from a local roaster in Amsterdam, i have the feeling he dumped an old batch on me... (the problem has only occurred with these beans after about 1,5 weeks)
  5. Spend the last 30 minutes trying to make an video, but i really need an extra arm or so... I've been using WDT for a while, I still have the feeling it's this batch of beans
  6. Hi all, I've been making decent espresso shot for a while however lately it gets kind of messy. During the initial extraction all is well but about 5 seconds in it gets really messy and coffee spats everywhere. No indication of channeling !! Level tamping with WDT. Equipment: Vibiemme domobar (9bar) VST 18gr (18gram dosed) 58,5mm motta tamper Mazzer sj (doserless mod) with 25kg old burrs. The beans have been frozen 5 days after roasting and been defrosted (for about 7 to 9 days and kept in an airsealed container) It really grinds my gears, I've been doing nice shots for a while and this is the first time it happens without changing anything.
  7. Hi guys, How much are the 58mm motta tampers going for ? Black/wood comes with the box, perfect condition. Cheers !
  8. Fair enough, but most people here treat the number as the golden standard.... It's a guideline a point to start... I wish it was as simple as 18G in 36G out in 30 seconds, would make life so much easier!
  9. About 2 hours! Been on many of these fora in holland, this is exactly what I've been looking for.
