Got one of these on loan at the moment .... Firstly its once again due to the generosity of forum members. Callum came up one late Wednesday night last week from Sheffield ( after a days work no less ) and dropped this off, fixed a new steam arm to the V and we stayed and made coffee and chatted . Not had an espresso grinder for a little bit as my EK43 is out on loan , so this is very welcome ... Callum and Foundry top guys ..... Back to the grinder 83 mm flat burrs . Compak by name , compact by nature , Its not huge ( for a coffee shop grinder ) . With the small hopper it looks smaller than the Vesuvius ... It has an stepless adjustment mech thats easy to use Here is where the magic comes out.... Here is the touch screen for adjusting times I just finished using it for 4 x double shots for latte art practice . 18 g into 18g vst Here is the spray of ground left around the grinder and in the tray .... Err yep there is nothing there...and I'm wearing odd socks ( its the end of half term , its been one of those days... ) I know you wanna here about in the cup and is is better than this or that ..not had it time to really nail it 100% , its super easy to use . the mini hopper holds just over 250g ... Ill put some clips of it in action and do some testing of how accurate it doses this week....
So folks this is the first of the lighter side of life offerings and I am quieter excited that it is coming from a roaster that has a strong forum connection in Callum our very own demon barista! The principle is exactly the same as the darker side of life, four bags of 250 grams will be sent out to each participant which will be consumed, evaluated, and feedback provided here on the thread. I imagine that many brew methods will come out of the lighter side, so please put down all your findings, my focus will be on espresso but I will dabble in a little brewed to see what it does. There are 8 guest slots available in 500 gram lots each priced at £12 including delivery so get your name down if you fancy giving this great roaster a go. I am sure that Callum will pop up and tell us a bit more about foundry and their ethos. Expect the beans to be delivered around the 13th October having been rested for three days, so perfect for the brewed lovers to get tucking into.
