  1. Stopped as it hissed As soon as the water goes in I stir and flip onto the cup to allow it to settle
  2. Lots of sediment in todays cup. Am I grinding too fine? Went with 10 minute steep instead and it's better
  3. So I'm mainly an aeropress user, I'm trying to get my cup sweeter and cleaner, it always seems to have a woody/bitter taste which i never get when I get coffee from a shop (proper shop obviously not Starbucks etc) My standard recipe is: Grind setting at 50 on my smart grinder pro 12g coffee to 200g water 5 minute brew with 30 second press Any tips for me to help me improve my cups?
  4. Hey guys, so I am currently still working with my Sage Smart Grinder Pro, but I feel I could use a better grinder. My coffee just doesn't feel very consistent and when looking at the grind I think that may be why. Please bare in mind 90% of my coffee is brewed, either aeropress or clever. I'm thinking of getting a commandante hand grinder. Does everyone think this is a worthwhile upgrade?
  5. Hey everyone I hope you're well. Long term member here but haven't been on for a couple of years. Lots has happened here, I quit my job offshore when my wife found out she was pregnant last March, and have started my own window cleaning company, and all has gone well. My little boy was born on the 1st of January this year and is doing really well. I decided to re join after playing around with my aeropress recipes a lot lately. So, hi, again

    Thanks, he assumed as much. Other than a genecafe are there any other roasters readily available in the UK with a good reputation?

    Hey guys. A mate of mine is looking for a behmor roaster stockist, can anyone help please?
  8. Does anyone use a really high dose for their brew? I just made an aeropress using 10g of coffee to 100g of water with a 1 minute to see what it was like and I was surprised to find it was pretty damn nice!
  9. Yea sure. The roast was a nice light-medium but the beans had a lovely satin feel to them. The smell on opening the bag was an experience I've never had before, I've had fruity beans before but this was something else. I ran it on my machine, 10g in for 100g out in 35 seconds which is my go to long espresso based drink, it was thick, juicy, sweet and fruity. I then had an aeropress just after posting this, 12g coffee to 200g water for 4 minutes and it was a little watery, I'd probably dose 14 next time and leave everything else the same, or dose 160g water to 12g and see how that is.

  10. So yesterday my wife and I went to a festive food market at a place near us, they had everything there and as we were leaving I noticed a coffee place, me being me I had to go and look and was assuming it to be another bulk re bag job. To my surprise I saw a nice EK43 grinder and a selection of different beans. I got a bag to try as a matter of course. Now, I've been ordering coffee from rave, has bean etc etc for years. Now this was the best coffee I have ever had by quite some way. I urge you all to have a look, it's the Ethiopian I got, thank me later www.norfolk.coffee
  11. @Fez I got it 2 months ago, got it home, the next day it wouldn't start, it's been gone for 7 weeks and had a new ECU, new wiring loom, new wiring, new ignition system, and more, I'm so glad it's back now
  12. Not the postman exactly but this got delivered to me this morning

  14. Hey guys. Do any of you make drinks similar to these? I love the espresso drinks but don't like how strong a 2:1 ratio is. I've recently been experimenting with longer ratios and Americanos. I found an article promoting a 10:1 brew ratio so 12g coffee for 120g out in 35 seconds. I've tried it but I'm not sure and think it could definitely be better. Any help would be appreciated
  15. Both, it was sweeter and thicker. I'll try a longer steep but I thought 5 minutes was really long. I used 60 on my sage
