  1. Uht will be fine. It's a little bit trickier to get texture on, but it'll be fine.
  2. Just pull an espresso you like and add some hot water from a kettle, innit. Not all that difficult. I don't use the hot water tap on my machine because that water comes from a very high temp steam boiler (127°c, for high power steaming of large jugs of milk), the water that comes from it tastes hard and minerally, adding a slight powdery finish to espresso. I get around this by having a dedicated boiler running from a completely separate filter (along with my batch brewer).
  3. JAYSUS noice wan bruvvaaaaa
  4. Yeah James made me a crazy tasty coffee with water from the hot tap in the toilets using this jug. I'll still stick with a brita filter jug and recipe adjustments before spending the cash on it.
  5. Actuallyyyyyyyy one of the 5E guys at LCF said something similar to me and I asked what the reasoning was and it stumped him. I wonder if it's built into their training that they should serve espresso that way. Weird if I'm honest.
  6. Low and slow means lowest heat for the longest time you can without getting astringency. I go almost espresso fine and use boiling water in the bottom and go lowest heat possible so when you turn off it takes less than 5 seconds to stop bubbling out of the spout.
  7. Show me someone who regularly drinks 25 shots a day and I'll show you someone in dire need of a dentist.
  8. D'Ancap are heavy duty, I use them in the shop, all sizes are within about 5ml. Inker are also rated, getting harder to find though. Acme are solid but spenny, as are Loveramics. Both readily available in 6oz in loads of colours.
  9. Oh, has the forum changed?
  10. Hot water in the bottom chamber, low and slow. Dose high, yield low.
  11. Any ol' natural Panama Gesha from a reputable roaster will be at least comparable to it. The only reason that it costs $75 a cup is that you have to at least make some money back from that $800+lb auction lot.
  12. about £75/kg wholesale... And it's actually not all that. It's an experimental lot and you're paying for the unknown essentially.
  13. Coffees #284 & #285 from today...
