Roaster, grinder and machine

Recommended Posts

Still on a Roaster learning curve and an ECM Synchronika acclimitisation. The Eureka is now a known quantity.

 

The step up in roast quality from a Gene Cafe is significant and the new ECM is getting more out of the beans as well.

 

All this just to get me feeling about 1/4 human in the morning.

Great setup.

 

Seeing that roaster on a kitchen top is just surreal - even by the standards of this forum I’ve never seen such sacrifices made in the name of good coffee! Bravo

In fairness, it is our utility room, not the kitchen. I am not even allowed to have the espresso m/c in the kitchen, where (almost) nothing is allowed to disturb the clean lines of the worktops

Ha - that makes sense, cool kitchen.

 

Oh my - a synchronika would make it look even better!?

Impressive stuff. Even down to the Mieles! Clearly a man of taste and quality!


ECM Synchronika, Olympus 75E, and, er..... stuff.

well that is a non-compromise setup :)

just one question, doesn't the smell of the washing machine detergent interfere?


The peculiarity of espresso beverage is the simultaneous presence of three dispersed phases coexisting within a matrix, namely a concentrated solution of salts, acids, sugars, caffeine and many other hydrophilic substances. These phases are: an emulsion of oil droplets, a suspension of solid particles and an effervescence of gas bubbles, which evolves into a foam.

Nearly 50kg of roasting to date. I am not sure I am getting the best out of this machine, but am trying to get a session with DaveC organised, or rather I need to get organised, as DaveC has offered me a session!

 

I can easily better any roast I did on the GC (and I did over 400 on that), so I must be doing something correctly; DaveC's manuals were/are invaluable.
