Thought I’d kick this one off as I’ve previously posted these elsewhere but now there is a Vesuvius section I’ll add it here.

Using 18g VST, 18g in 1:2 ratio , targeting 36g out.

My main profile is a lever style one

14s-2b,5s-10b,5s-9b,5s-8b,5s-7b,5s-6b,14s-4b total 52s but aim to stop it at 44s as this is when it normally hits 36g. I stop by weight.

 

re long preinfusions, I had the pressure gauge on the group, since replaced by temp sensor, but whilst the pressure shown on the gauge is the same as on the lcd, there is a period of 6 to 7 seconds where no pressure is registered on the gauge. I think this is the E61 group filling, not sure.

So not sure what effect less than 6s PI will have, that’s why I use 14s. Also, using a naked, with the right grind, this is when drips just start to appear before the pressure starts to ramp up.

 

The other profiles I have are for Light Roasts, Flat 9 bar, Flat 6 bar, both these with 7s pre infusion first.

I use the 6 bar one also to carry out the back flush with a blind basket.

I like X-Flavour profile that has been shared in the forum:

 

8sec - 2bar ->(5sec - 9bar) ->(6sec - 8bar) ->(6sec - 8bar) ->(5sec - 7bar)->(3sec - 7bar) -> 90sec - 6bar

 

and the result is sweet:

What’s your light roast profile Steve?

I’m finding x-flavour profile is working best for decaf funnily enough.

 

I usually try a new bean on lever profile first though not for decaf now

If I'm using a long pre infusion profile I adjust the length of it to when the coffee starts to become visible at the bottom of the filter which is usually about 14s.

Not a problem, there are more than enough to play with. I had a look over and then extracted the ones I knew I would like to try based on previous experience. I kind of always preferred the slow ramp up then tail off style profiles and there are quite a few variants on there for that type. But equally plenty of flatter style profiles or quick ramps etc

There is much talk of what profile to use for lighter roasts, what are people using for darker roasts or blends?

I am on a Fudge at the moment from Rave, I think it is a medium/dark roast and using profile 2 on my list (have put on download section 👍

Similar roast level to me then, 

I'm on Rave signature blend (I don't normally drink that roast level, just experimenting). So far I've tried it on X profile, and a 2-bar pre-infusion until first drips appear (15 seconds) followed by ramp up to 9 bar (a further 19 sec). I've got your download and will take a look, thanks.

Just seen the download file. Excellent work. On my profile I aim to end the shot at 44s but run the profile as 52s in case grind a bit tight and my output hasn't hit target (1:2) by then.

What's your breakdown between pre-infusion/extraction?

Is that lighter roast? I generally cut my darker bean time down to avoid bitterness.

Medium roast. 14s 2bar preinfusion. Lighter roasts I either increase PI to 3 bar or increase  time and/or pressure depending on flow.

What are people tending to use for decaf?

I find it behaves different no matter what roast level. I don’t get anything beyond medium/dark now though tend to start on x-flavour profile and go from there?

A little bit off topic - but can u tell us if the temp sensor usage has led you to change your temp offset?

My is set as default but I’m getting the impression it might be a bit high as I’m getting very slight flash boiling when left for a while

I did a bit of testing with a home made scace device as I wasn't sure either. Mine is set st 13c. At my room temp ambient turns out 13 is the right offset for my machine so I left as is.

I use the temp sensor to indicate when the machine is up to temp and to check what it shows pre and during shot. This is because I use it at Farmer's Markets where ambient can vary more than in a kitchen. If it's say 2c lower than normal I change the brew temp up by 2 rather than mess with the offset as it will only a temporary change. Once the coffee is flying out I then change it back to 93
