Hi Went to Kaffeine Thursday....AWESOME flat white! Ordered some red brick as that's what they use. Been playing around with it but just can't seem to get any punch out of it. I have a Gaggia classic with La pavoni (obel) grinder. For the last 4-5 months I've been using The Bean shops's blend67 and had some absolutely brilliant coffees, rich dark and strong. Heard lots of good things about the red brick and loved what I tasted in the cafe. Just getting a very milky tasting drink. Any suggestions? Getting a 2oz shot in about 22 sec from 18grams of beans.
Ok so I've been reading the threads about the VST baskets and keep being asked what I want for Christmas so I've come to the conclusion that a VST basket (and some Square Mile Red Brick) would fit the bill nicely. I am currently using the standard silvia basket and dosing around 16g, my triple that came with the bottomless PF has never really been used. What I want to know is the following: 1) Is it worth going for the 18g over the 14g for the Silvia? 2) Does the 18g VST fit in the standard Silvia PF? 3) If it doesn't, what are the dimensions of the 18g VST so I can see if they will fit my (cheap) bottomless PF?
