Hi.

Sage Barista express machine arriving Wednesday.

Have been having a shufty at the advice on here and no longer feel 'totally' bemused by all the info!

Look forward to trying it out.

 

Cheers, Will.

Machine is here......

Beans sourced from a local roaster but we're only done on Tuesday so still a little bit too fresh...... Thought I would try some beans from Booths supermarket (roast date 9th Nov) and not impressed. 18g and finest possible grind gives about a 14 sec pour and only just hits the 'espresso' section on the pressure gauge. Taste is bitter/ sour (although no worse than some I've had in some supposed expert coffee shops!). 

 

Tomorrow may end up in a wee drive to another local roaster to see if they have something ready to rock.

Union beans from Waitrose or Sainsburys


SAGE IS NOT A UPGRADE

They had those on offer at Booths as well.

I'm actually a bit spoilt for choice, Roberts and co is 20mins away as are any of the Liverpool based roasters. I've also got a bag on order from Django so won't be going short of caffeine!

Why not try those locally roasted on tuesday beans? They’ll be a better place to start than any of the grocery store beans. Sure, they’re a bit fresh, maybe a bit gassy, maybe not though... while they may not have reached their optimum, 3 days off roast shouldn’t be undrinkable... and you can taste them as they age, day by day, to see which tastes best to your palate.😉
