  2. This link to the SCAA advice on cupping may help, it's a good read. http://www.scaa.org/?page=resources&d=cupping-protocols&mod=article_inline Below is a Cut and Paste of the relevant part to original question: "Acidity Acidity is often described as "brightness" when favorable or "sour" when unfavorable. At its best, acidity contributes to a coffee's liveliness, sweetness, and fresh- fruit character and is almost immediately experienced and evaluated when the coffee is first slurped into the mouth. Acidity that is overly intense or dominating may be unpleasant, how
  3. It's a tang of any flavour that stands out against the background coffee flavour.
  4. Just a germ of an idea.. If the budget allows, the Francino would be compact and give the full theatricals to attract attention. https://www.logicvending.co.uk/fracino-roastilino-coffee-bean-roaster https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fracino-Roastilino-Countertop-Coffee-Roaster/154016107058?hash=item23dc134a32:g:LkYAAOSwxvFfF34S
  5. Thanks Mildred. From the above link to D&H, is this: https://online.anyflip.com/argx/vmaq/mobile/index.html#p=1 an online version. Not quite as nice as holding a real magazine, but you do get to source the info in the 1st Edition for free!
  6. This mornings program had a piece (about 18mins in) on pregnancy and coffee and its misreporting. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000mr42
  7. That largely depends on how much coffee you are roasting. I also have a memory that davecuk mentioned something about an increase is residues if the CD was not open all the time??????? I am sure there is something in the forum threads. I do 5/7kg every 2 weeks. I clean the fan every 6 months -----and it probably could be done more often!
  8. Ps. Fuse should be obtainable from https://www.theespressoshop.co.uk/en/La-Pavoni-Lever-Safety-Thermostat-127C---436040/m-2244.aspx
  9. I had this same problem, but different models may have different situations under the bar fuse. Disconnect from mains. Remove old bar fuse. If you have a circular cavity the new reset fuse nearly goes in. I reemed mine out with a Dremmel type tool and a sanding barrel. This had a sort of rubber barrel with a screw end that you can fit new/different grade emery tubes over---ask if you need pic! There should be a thread (started by me) with pics of the job. I then used Araldite to glue the new fuse into the enlarged recess. Plan B was to use the old fuse retaining screw and
  10. Carnauba wax is used to coat coffee beans intended for direct consumption, ie chocolate covered. If it was such, I would think the roasting process would remove the wax along with the chaff? Not the definitive answer, but I have never heard of beans destined for roasting that have been coated with Carnauba wax.
