Been Having A Move Round!

Recommended Posts

This is how things look now.

 

Because we often make our coffee together it has worked out quite well using the end of the dresser for whichever grinder is in use, meaning we are not standing on one another's toes!

Must be so lovely to make coffee together in a well thought out space. Hubby generally just tries his best to keep out of my way (usually ending up even more in my way!!)


Did someone say coffee?

Wow I turn away for a couple of weeks and Mildred has got more exotica in the kitchen!

 

Looks amazing.

 

Do you have different uses for each grinder Mildred? Oh my days it’s like going to pebble beach concours d’elegance!

At the moment the conical is an ornament! I think the novelty of the flat will wear off before too long though. In fact we’ve just been saying we will swap them over tomorrow morning and give the conical a run. The HG-1 is decaf at present.

We haven't tested as such, not one then the other adequately to say really. We have had some amazing tasting coffee recently, shot after shot, and some have been particularily light roasts which I think suit the flat. But I can't recall thinking the conical wasn't delivering time after time either.

 

I think it would take a better man than me to take the two grinders, compare them and then offer their opinion based on taste in the cup.

Can either grinder go coarse enough for filter?

I expect so but you know me, no filter equipment ;)

Would you be willing to have a play with the flat as coarse as it will go? You must have a cafetiere or something that you can use? The delicious lsol coffee should arrive on Friday for your experiments

I'm going to try putting an Aeropress filter in my portafilter, coursen the grind and use pre-infusion pressure to see if I can get a decent brew.

Easily. For a couple of months whilst machine-less I used the flat for kalita/v60 and aeropress with no hassle swapping between methods.

 

It’s a mightily impressive grinder.

After 25 odd years of drinking cafetière coffee I think I probably have the odd dozen hiding somewhere. Haven’t dragged one out since I got my first Rocket though :)

I tried to get a pic of the start of a shot but lack of light in a dark kitchen caused more than a little frustration (verging on a full scale tantrum)!

Hi Mildred

 

first off, what a set up I am very impressed, now the big question, how do you like your OCD distribution tool, I have a cheap knock off and I love it, my budget could not stretch to the big bucks this commands.

 

cheers

 

Big Pete
