  1. Certainly helpful although when some grinders say one thing I don't necessarily agree. Would probably be useful if you were using one grinder for two methods and for sharing grind settings as a start point.
  2. Wish I'd said something like that back
  3. ...I'm a coffee snob. I've got a bean to cup machine which cost £400.
  4. So last weekend roasted the £4 per kilo beans. They were Brazilian Santos and aimed for medium roast. Using a pretty basic method and have been resting for the week. Smell of beans is good and just had it in a pour over. I think it's got good mouth feel with a little acidity. I'm new to it all so some will not go down this route of cheap beans but I'm happy with them and will order more from coffeeroger on eBay.
  5. No expert but I ran the machine (as if it was going to grind beans) with the dregs of a dose and took it back (finer) to just hear the burrs 'chirp' so they are just touching and then turned it to coarser so they weren't touching. This kind of gave me a 0 or start point. This was way too fine for my gaggia and choked it. I can't remember how much I turned it back from there. I have it running with and without beans when adjusting finer. Coarser doesn't matter as you are giving the beans more room!

  6. Ah that's beginning to make more sense. Think I'll pass on that little add on then.
  7. Keep it clean or not. Came in some stuff I bought for gaggia. Friday evening during lockdown sounded like the perfect time to start modding.
  8. Yet to roast. I'll have a bash tomorrow now you come to mention it.
  9. I'd like to purchase this please.
  10. I think a moisture meter is about the only thing we haven't got! I'll let you know and take some pics.
  11. Very fair and would agree with their marketing strategy being a little less than welcoming. Thought it was worth a punt. Be interesting to see if it passes as drinkable. Novice roaster and these beans could hurt...
  12. I'm getting back into roasting after having got fed up with not quite achieving something tasty. I was searching for a gene roaster and in the process came across some relatively cheap beans...Brazilian Santos for £4 per kilo. The seller name is coffeecoffeeroger based in Maidstone.
  13. You might have beat me to it @Jony, I was going to offer £20 inc. delivery if I interested.
