    Mara X

    Impressive improvement over the old Mara. I'm glad I went for the Gaggia for my first machine over the Mara, this new one is definitely gonna be the upgrade I go for in the future.
  2. Sorry maybe you misread but these are the first decaf beans I've tried. I'm just comparing to non-decaf beans I've tried so far.
  3. I bought the CC Jalapa community lot too. I'm only just starting off on this espresso thing so my opinion should be taken with a grain of salt, but I find it quite uninteresting in flavour compared to the other non decaff beans I have. It's definitely smooth though, easy to drink.
  4. I think regardless of pollution and all the rest of the main reasons for the push to EVs, the biggest issue remaining is lack of infrastructure, the industry is far exceeding the level of infrastructure the country currently has. For example the Tesla Model 3 can take up to 200kW of charge, Porsche's new Taycan can take up to 270kW and even the modest VW ID can take 100kW, yet there are hardly any publicly available chargers that provide that capacity. Yet apparently we are going to ban all sales of combustion engine vehicles in 15 years.
  5. Their update from yesterday says early next month. Guess they're building and preparing stock or something.
  6. I'm definitely finding the steaming technique for a flat white the hardest thing since I got my machine. I think my difficulty is mainly getting that swirl which textures the milk nicely. But I'm hoping it'll come to me with everyday of practice and in the meantime I drink whatever mess I come up with

    I have tried searching but couldn't really find any answer so apologies in advance, but I am wondering what the reason is for people transfering beans from the retail bag to a container like the Airscape? The retail bag has a one-way valve and I would have imagined transferring the beans from the bag to the empty Airscape is just introducing them to more oxygen compared to just leaving them in the bag they came in?

  9. It does look deceptively tasty. I would have thought layers in the puck like that have something to do with grind consistency, but not 100% sure Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk
  10. Yeah that's an issue for the idea of getting the autonomous car you bought to act as a taxi for others but I was more thinking for a group of people who know each other. For example a family who normally have 3 cars sitting on the drive could reduce to one with this idea. Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk
  11. I disagree that shared cars are a good solution. I've tried it before when I lived with family and it's constantly a nightmare. It is a problem, and investing in public transport is the only way to solve it. If we want less cars on the road we have to make it easier, more reliable, and cheaper to get public transport instead of driving everywhere. Or we can wait a decade or two until we have autonomous cars that don't need to sit in a parking space for the whole day and can just pickup & dropoff car sharers.

  12. And I'll expect your essay on why all new members must study the rules immediately before saying a word, latest by Wednesday. [emoji6] Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk
  13. This thread is amazing. Never fails to make me hungry when I see it pop up [emoji16] Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk
  14. On one hand I think it'd be ridiculous to limit the forum to only coffee related topics. On the other hand I agree with people who dislike political threads. This forum obviously brings people together for their love of all things coffee, and while there is nothing wrong with debate, political topics create division and many people don't seem to be able to discuss politics these days without acting like a hooligan at a football game. Perhaps a solution is a sub-forum named politics. If people want to discuss that stuff they can go there, while others can ignore it.
