Good stuff there... congrats everybody so far!

 

Well what can I say, I totally messed up while prepping for a couple garage roasts.

Didn't bring enough milk, so by the end jug was merely spitting. Also got the tamp wrong for some reason, go clean up after that channeling desaster now

 

Oh, wait... here it is:

As it really is that bad, you're not gonna get any closer and the image filter is to cause distraction...

 

But looking forward to the other entries!!

Keep pouring on folks!

 

 

PS: haha, didn't even put the note in the photo... so it won't even count

I'm sure it'd be better than my attempt especially since I forgot to turn the machine on! If it weren't for the fact I have LSOL in the hopper I'd try a dodgy. Sink shot but not gonna waste a bean of these beauties. Will just have to try my dosgy skills some other day.

Judging by my effort here I need the practice lol

 

At least my tea will be scrummy. This thing cooks just like an Aga (radiant heat) and I can slow cook all night in it. :cool:

2nd attempt with the super auto well after the final bell. At least the mother in law is happy! The only embarrassing thing will be if my actual attempt with a steam wand is worse! e3f146264b25fa5bfc88bb99857dacb1.jpg

So, does that now mean the participants of this round are now 'done' and can watch from the sidelines? Subsequent rounds only for those who missed this one is how I read it.

So, er, having fired an entry in within the first ten minutes, does that now mean the participants of this round are now 'done' and can watch from the sidelines, or do we get another go in the rounds yet to come? I did read the original post but was still a bit unclear.

Haha! That’s it, no more goes ;) Sit back, watch and enjoy!
