So i picked up the MC2 at the weekend. It was second hand and already set to grind fine for espresso. I used it as it arrived and the machine almost choked. So i kept adjusting the grind a little coarser each time i used the machine. Eventually i got to the stage where i was getting a nice slow pour. I didnt time it or weigh it but i would estimate i was getting a double shot of espresso, from a basket full (pre tamp) of coffee in around 25 secs. The problem was that the crema was very dark and the coffee was very bitter. Not to my taste. So i kept adjusting the grind. Im now at a stage where im getting more than a double shot in 25 secs, but the crema is a nice golden brown colour and the coffee is less strong. I mainly drink espressos and this setting seems to be really good for me. Im topping up with hot water so the volume isn't really important. So for the time being i'm loving the set up and drinking way too much coffee!!
Well I received four 250g bags yesterday from Rave and decided to try out the 'Signature Blend' even though it had only been roasted on 11th. I have been hooked on Fudge for a while but wanted to go for something else. Last time I did this was the Suarez - wasn't for me. I didn't really know how it would come out as not rested but surprised how tasty Excuse the art...not one of my best! Definately a tasty one for me, and 1st shot too 👍
