Aeropress, was just curious how other people brew with it. I like the inverted method, what do you like.?

Have you ever wondered how it should be the Perfect Espresso? 

Our new infographic will explain what type of visual, olfactive and gustatory analysis can be achieved to understand if we were served (or have served) a Perfect Espresso.

Nice grinder and espresso machine pairing,

The grind consistency and size is part of the extraction parameters that are important to espresso.

I see that you don't use a bottomless portafilter, Your analisis of extraction is less accurate.

I have a love / hate relationship with the low water power off switch in my Isomac Tea.  It always seems to run out of water when I'm running late in the morning, but I'm thankful it exists to let me know when the tank is low.

There should be two levels, one warning (you have water for two more cups) and one panic shut-off level. I really can't see why they skimp out on this on tank-equipped espresso machines in all price ranges!

Not at all. I just like understanding what accounts for the things I observe. I do have to admit that it's often easier for me to analyze what's going on in photographs than in the espressos I pull. :)

Just a quick Latte Macchiato I pulled on my Izzo Alex Duetto II - thought i would share :) feel free to give some feedback. Also please pardon my poor grammar.. I meant "ground" not "grinded".

Coffee is 3 days post roast BCT Espresso blend roasted on a Gene Cafe, ground with a Mazzer Super Jolly.

If you were to stumble upon +Johan & Nyström's Espresso Verde, do try an affogato. It turns magically into some sort of fruity caramel when it hits the cold vanilla ice cream.

Bit cheeky to say "coffee snobs" but I love the engineering that has gone into making a #coffee machine for use in space!

I might be getting the hang of this!  At least this is somewhat recognizable!  I guess I will have to keep working on it, though.....

Just a quick photo I snapped of a fresh bag of beans that I picked up from a friend who's starting out roasting... being I have a photography background I wanted to give him something to promote on his Instagram.  I'll try to get a photo of me pulling a shot in the next day or two from this bag on my Isomac Tea with a naked portafilter.  For those interested, website is http://palscoffeeroasters.com/

I've used the Hario Mini with a power tool when my Vario had belt malfunction. It worked. Dialing it in was a major pain without any kind of markings, it's customary to count the click from the very tightest but that's pretty unreliable. Once I found the setting, the grinder did just fine. Keep in mind that for +Stephen Cia it will be a huge improvement over the blade grinder.
