  1. Good evening Folks, Looking to a purchase a water filter jug for my espresso machine was thinking a Zerowater pitcher (as it comes with TDS meter) can anyone offer any suggestions or advice? Thanks, Mike
  2. As mentioned in an earlier post, I decided to purchase an analogue/optical refractometer to try and analyse my brew TDS%. This is therefore a follow up to let you know how I got on. You can follow this link to see the unit I purchased for £20 (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Refractometer-synthetic-machining-low-concentrated-solutions/dp/B01NBYE6ER/ref=sr_1_1?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1488591393&sr=1-1&keywords=Brix+Refractometer+Range+0-10%25+Brix+Testing+synthetic+machining+Coolants%2C+maple+sap) It arrived within a week and was already calibrated to 0 with water. I calibrated it slightly, easily done with the supplied screwdriver, with Waitrose Essential water as that is what I primarily use for both v60 and espresso. As this refractometer is not designed to read TDS in coffee, but rather the refractive index of sugar containing solutions you have to apply a conversion to obtain TDS. Multiplying Brix% x 0.85 = TDS%. This thread from the inventor of the aeropress is worth looking through if you are interested, he uses the Atago digital refractometer which also measures Brix (http://coffeegeek.com/forums/coffee/machines/203992). I opted for the analogue/optical 0-10% range refractometer with a resolution of 0.1% as opposed to the 0-32% one (resolution of 0.2%), as for brewed coffee you would rarely be looking at values above 1.8. I also downloaded the Android VST Coffee tool app for £24 to plug in the numbers and get an EY% and cool looking graphs. So, I wasn't expecting great things obviously seeing an actual refractometer costs £600, but was curious to see whether I can get ballpark readings which I could then correlate to perceived flavour, ie get a feeling for what 1.2 %TDS vs 1.6% TDS tastes like or 18% vs 21% EY with the same beans but with minor alterations in brew conditions. I tested 6 samples, 4 of which were v60 brews and 2 espresso samples. You can find all the values and tables in the file attached (pdf version also available through dropbox link https://www.dropbox.com/s/t3l6zk46csc1tn4/Optical%20vs%20VST%20refract.%20.pdf?dl=0). The v60 samples were not filtered as the hario paper does an excellent job of retaining undisolved solids. Te espresso sample on the other hand was filtered through a 0.22um filter. You only need to place 3-4 drops of your well stirred, cooled down brew on the glass, close the lid and you're ready to go. You need to find a bright lightbulb, point the refractometer directly at it and look through. If you get the light just right you can see a clear separation and with a bit of practise you can fairly easily see 0.1% differences. It might have been my imagination or perhaps I was getting lightheaded staring through it for too long but some samples seemed to fall within the 0.05% range so I made a note that it was for example between 1.6 - 1.65 %Brix. I noted down all parameters as best as I could as well as the taste of each brew and saved test samples of each brew. Espresso results were much harder to interpret. Acknowledging the fact that a typical shot will be in the 10% TDS range (11.7% Brix) it was out of range of my refractometer, so I diluted the samples 1:2 with water using equal drops of each hoping to halve the value so that it is readable, and by doubling it I would get my true TDS.. yeah right.. But after all this messing about how do I know that the values I'm getting are even marginally close to actual TDS readings and they are not just fictional over or underestimated values? Luckily, the extremely generous Mr @Phobic agreed to run my stored samples on his 3rd gen VST refractometer!!! He took 10 reads of each and sent me the results same day, thanks again so much! And the answer is... the cheapo refractometer is not that horrendously off! I must say, I was pleasantly surprised that in some instances with the v60 samples it came so close. Although the n number is far too low to draw any serious conclusions, I'd say that with the optical refractometer I am overestimating the TDS by So although it may not be incredibly accurate and will not allow you to meaningfully compare TDS and EY values with someone using the same beans but with a digital VST-type refractometer, I think it is useful in determining a trend for your brews and help you understand solubility and extraction rate of different coffee, how that can be pushed in either direction by altering grind size or pouring/stirring technique and most importantly of all how that may improve taste. Hope I haven't bored you out of your minds! How did it end up being 3am.. Optical vs VST refract. rreduced.pdf
  3. I was hoping one of you kind gentlemen who posses a refractometer could do me a massive favour. Being a scientist, I really want to be able to assign values to my brews and work out how they correlate to flavour, but got to save up quite a bit more before I can own one myself. I got myself a cheaper alternative (Brix 0-10% sucrose refractometer) and the VST coffee tools app. Using the Brix % x 0.85 = TDS conversion I am getting what I think are reasonable values, however I have no reference point. So... would any of you be willing to test a few samples for me (5 max) on your refractometer to see if the numbers match? With my current Brix meter I can only test TDS up to about 8% so will only be samples from V60. I was thinking I could post a few samples in labelled tubes if that works :/ Being from V60 it wouldn't have to be filtered but if you would rather it was I can do that before sending as I have loads of 0.22 micron filters from the lab Thank you!! Christos
  4. I've had a search on here, HB and google but I can't seem to find any discussion about TDS targets for decaf. I can't remember where I've read it but believe that you should aim for a lower TDS for decaf because the decaf process will remove some of the solids from the beans (which makes sense). does anyone know how much typically you should adjust TDS target to hit the sweet spot roughly?
  5. I recently got hold of an Atago Pal Coffee TDS in order to look at extraction yields of my brewed coffee. I already had a cheap conductivity meter, a £40 ish HM EC/TDS/TEMP COM-100 bought from Amazon so out of curiosity I tested 4 of my brews plus for fun, 2 espressos. As the Com-100 contacts need to be submerged in the coffee I used a shot glass to test. The sample for the Atago was taken from this glass as well, which was allowed to cool down to 20-25c so that the coffee was close to the device temperature. One brewed sample, was watered down with a known qty of water to and tested as BREW4 Also two espresso were done, one measured as is, one filtered via a dry V60 paper as I don't have the specialist filters. Below are the results ___________ATAGO. _______COM-100 _______TDS. ___EY. ______TDS. ___EY BREW1. 0.87%. 13.65%. ___0.89% 13.96% BREW2. 1.41%. 19.96%. ___1.40% 19.82% BREW3. 1.35%. 19.32%. ___1.39%. 19.89% BREW4. 0.63%. 17.37%. ___0.69% 19.03% (WATERED) ______________Atago_____________Com-100 ESPRESSO_____TDS____EY_______TDS____EY 1 UNFILTERED. 12.04% 19.22% ___6.33%. 10.11% 1 FILTERED. 12.27%. 19.59%. __6.27%. 10.01% 2 UNFILTERED. 12.51%. 22.17%. __7.30%. 12.94% 2 FILTERED. 12.10%. 21.44%. __7.05%. 12.48% I didn't expect the Com-100 to be close to the Atago in the brewed range. However, for espresso I think the numbers are so far out from what is designed for that the only way you might get reasonable measures is to do a controlled dilution to bring the TDS number more in range. I may try this later to see if it makes a difference. I will continue to measure my brews with both machines to see if this pattern continues. If it does, then it might be a cheap way to get measuring extraction yields as long as the variances are within your own personal tolerances. After a while I'm sure I can see how close the Com-100 is but probably only use it when the Atago is not around.
  6. Hi all Up until now I've been using large bottles of water, Ashbeck or similar, for my Sage (Breville) Dual Boiler 920 and a counter top Britta jug for all other cooking and consumption as we live in a hard water area. 3 weeks ago I installed a BWT BestMax Premium and a 3way tap to replace the Britta and bottles for all our cooking, drinking and for the DB. I have digital TDS meter and was measuring the results of the water, but was disappointed that it didn't drop that much. Bottled: TDS = 70ppm Water supply: TDS = 340ppm Water supply with BWT: TDS @1 = 270ppm TDS @0 = 240ppm I'm aware that the TDS is for all mineral content, not just the calcium, but still I was expecting it to filter more than it did. I spoke to BWT and after a long chat with one of their guys they were saying that there needs to be a mix and for 340ppm (19°d) tap water that would be about 1 or 2 on the BWT cap for equipment that heat water >95C On the back of the book that came with the BWT there is a chart for recommended cap/blend settings for the filter depending on water hardness. Right enough, for boil/steam water the recommended cap setting is @1 The reason being that the ion exchanger in the BestMax will take the calcium out of the water and replace it with magnesium, but if I have it at 0 then too much of the calcium is removed. He said that the magnesium will cause the coffee to over extract due to the molecular structure... the example he said was that calcium grabs the coffee with one hand, magnesium grabs it with two hands. A week or so later I got an API GH&KH water test kit for a more detailed breakdown and the results I got were: Bottled: None to test with Water supply: GH 18 drops = 320ppm, KH 12 drops = 214ppm Water supply with BWT @1: GH 12 drops = 214ppm, KH 5 drops = 89ppm Even though that's the recommended settings and the guy from BWT explained that it needs a mix for better extraction and flavour and that I should still de-scale annually, it still seems that the KH is a bit on the high side. Without having the bottled water to test, I can't compare. So - putting out to the more experienced of you, is the KH within tolerance for the long term health of my machine and for good coffee extraction or would you recommend going back to bottled?
  7. Step21

    Solubility of beans

    Or how easy they are to extract. A few questions.... Given the same brewing parameters, i notice for instance that African beans tend to produce higher TDS readings than say South American. Is this primarily a function of origin/varietal? Does the type of processing have an effect? e.g will a natural process produce a different level of solubility than say a washed (of the same bean)? Does the level of roast have an effect? For the same coffee will a darker roast produce a higher TDS than a lighter roast? I also notice that decaf beans seem to be very low (presumably due to the decaf process?) Adjust brew ratios to compensate?
  8. Just an update on relevant TDS on frequently mentioned bottled waters. VOLVIC TDS. 90. ASHBECK TDS. 53. WAITROSE ESSENTIAL . STRETTON HILLS. TDS. 75.
  9. Here's today's V60-01. Sumatra Mandheling (approx 4 weeks past roast) 13.1g grinds 211g water Water Temp 94-89C Resulting TDS 1.39% (at 64.9 degrees C ... TDS Meter accuracy limitations apply) Extraction Yield 22.4% Tasted good but next time will increase dose to reduce Ext %.
  10. Question: How do you know whether your coffee is too strong... too weak... whether you have eeked out too much from the grinds than you should have (over-extracted)... or perhaps not washed enough of the coffee particles off the grinds and into your cup (under-extracted)? Tasting it is one way... but everyone's taste buds are different. There are actually established standards to help you brew the 'ideal' coffee, based upon years of research and recording the taste preferences of many people. You can use a device called refractometer to measure your coffee and compare it with these standards. This is where coffee gets geeky - too geeky for some, but since this forum has its fair share of technically minded people on here then some of you may love the thought of being able to control coffee rather than letting it control you. Here is an abstract from the patent application for the VST Refractometer. "A coffee refractometer includes a prism that receives a brewed coffee sample, thus forming a prism-sample interface. A processor or microcontroller controls a light source to provide incident light to the prism-sample interface. The prism-sample interface refracts light toward a photodetector. A temperature sensor provides temperature information to the processor. The refractometer includes a memory store that stores a TDS formula that expresses the TDS of brewed coffee as a function of the index of refraction (n.sub.s) of brewed coffee and the temperature of brewed coffee. The processor determines the TDS of the brewed coffee sample by accessing the TDS formula in the memory store and employing the determined index of refraction (n.sub.s) of the brewed coffee sample to find the TDS from the TDS formula. The refractometer displays the resultant TDS % on a display of the refractometer and/or transmits such information to an information handling system." TDS stands for Total Dissolved Solids. It is a measure of the amount of coffee that has ended up in your cup... aka the strength of your coffee. It is the gateway to answering the question posed at the start of this post. The refractometer gives you brewing control. Like most things geeky and technical, once you learn how controlled brewing works it is actually easy... no more difficult than learning to set the timer on Sky Plus! We pay a lot of money for great coffee beans, so it makes sense to brew them correctly.
  11. I'd like to increase the TDS strength of my espresso shots. I have, however, the following constraints: - I can't grind finer because it would choke the machine - I can't go hotter - I don't want to reduce the extraction yield % What might help? I've had the following thoughts: - a better grinder - a basket with smaller holes - updosing but keep the beverage weight the same Any thoughts? I'm struggling a little.
  12. So... I thought I would start trying to accurately measure how good my coffee actually is. I thought it was good but not I have measure it I'm a little off. Good news is that as I tweak grind, volume, etc it's getting better. But now I'm obsessed with getting it perfect and it's painful at times :s
  13. For years I have made my espresso on a Pavoni Lever machine and from 14g of coffee have pulled a shot of about 52-54ml total volume. I am now using an Elektra Micro casa lever and find I am getting a shot of about 45 -50ml from the same amount of coffee. I was under the impression that from 14g of coffee it was standard to aim for 60ml but I have just read in another thread here that someone is using 18g of coffee to get a 30ml drink. As a rule, what do you aim for?
