Barista touch sour coffee

Recommended Posts

Hi 

got my barista touch from amazon 3 weeks ago.

feels like the coffee is coming out way too sour.

i think I’m doing everything by the book

1: dose - 18 grams to 36 grams using the single wall 

2: crema: very good

3: body : feels right to me

4: I preheat the machine running one shot of water to heat to basket 

5: preheat the glass 

6: beans: fresh see below

my coffee taste sour with all the beans I’ve tried see below pictures

i did a temperature test and it seems that the water coming from the shower head wont be above 177 and dropping to 160 till the end of the shoot.

Temperature  Of  the coffee in glass is around 140-150 tops

Leading to the Result of a sour coffee.

Would like to hear your suggestions before I return the machine and get dB or oracle

When was the coffee roasted? There should be one on the bag. A roast date not a best before.


Machine - Currently a Londinium R. Grinder - Niche. Tamper/distributor - Puqpress and Pullman Distribution and Big Step Palm Tamper.

Grind finer or use a different brew ratio. 

1:3 for example.

Your hung up in one ratio.

 

Temp test like this tell us very little , as they are either just not accurate enough and we don't know what your measuring it with etc etc etc. 


I write a blog, it's nothing to do with coffee ...

I’ve tried numerous grind setting.

Tried to change to ratio as well didn’t go so well, the 1:2 gives great result body and Crema wise.

gonna return it, sadly looks like a design flaw as the water are not nearly as hot as they should be.

You're not the first to buy a BT & come to this conclusion.

Laissez les bons temps rouler
