Any machine that gives you control over the water temp with some preinfusion and allows you to steam milk and pull your shot at the same time. So avoid single boiler and go for a heat exchanger machine, or a double boiler if you can find a really good deal. You could go a step further into pressure profiling, but that's either only on a manual lever machine or an exorbitantly expensive prosumer machine.

Glad to hear it! Those little prep steps add up, and you've certainly got enough time while your water boils.

The Bialetti milk frother is really damn excellent. I pour milk about a quarter of the way, warm it up on the stove and then press. Shit triples in size within a couple of seconds.

Standalone probably a bellman steamer. Its a mokapot with a nozzle basically. Couple orings that shouldn't need to be replaced unless you fuck up and put it on the stove without water like one anon here did. I've heard people bitch about the tip, but it seems modifiable.

On that note, before today, I had been using the pressurized basket because my espresso shots kept coming out under-extracted with the non-pressured basket.

It's very difficult to underfroth your latte milk.
Just keep in mind that, the rate of your pour, height of pour and milk texture all play almost equal roles.
With your steam wand, it'll be difficult to get your milk into a vortex, breaking down those bigger bubbles. A cost effective way to practice is to use a little hand soap in water. It'll heat up faster than milk, but can achieve a surprisingly accurate substitute for milk.

>> No.16222203

Different anon here.
So what he's talking about breaks up clumps in your espresso. Many espresso grinders have clump crushers, but they aren't always 100% effective.
An ocd or chisel will not break up clumps, but rather distribute coffee around the basket evenly, however you won't be able to see any dense pockets of clumps within the puck, which can encourage channels.
Each of these things individually account for varying percentages of effects on your final brew, and serve to introduce further methods that produce consistency, and they all add up over time.
Don't be intimidated by all of these things, they are what await you further down the rabbit hole, that is espresso. It's deceptively simple.

I find bean brands are highly locality-dependent. Now I'm not a hippy that touts EAT LOCAL, it's just I find that I get fresher beans this way. For example, you live on the west coast and want some Sey beans from NYC, its gonna take a few days to get here. It may not be as fresh. There are, however, some people that say fresher doesn't mean better beans and that some beans actually benefit from letting it sit for a month or so. I personally don't think so. Fresher beans are CONSISTENTLY better for me.

>> No.16222576

>>16222514
The 2-3 days your beans take to get shipped to your house aren't going to make or break the beans unless you're ordering from a roaster who doesn't ship you freshly roasted beans, or if they're using some kind of shitty packaging that allows excessive amounts of oxygen to get in.
As for using fresh beans, I've found that letting it sit for a week to degas yields more consistent drawdown times for a pourover, and it absolutely needs to sit for a week or two if you're going to get consistent extraction for an espresso shot.

if your output has been too much liquid then the grind is too coarse and most likely under-extracted espresso.

Made my first attempt at roasting my own beans today. I used a steel sieve and just kept it moving over a medium flame on my stove for about 10 minutes.

The flavor turned out to be a bit 'greener' than I expected, and also a little bit of burnt flavor, but overall really pretty good for a first attempt and using unconventional roasting methods.

The difference in flavor also might have been because I was using Ethiopian beans when I'm used to Central/South American beans. I think I'll try Columbian next time.

Anyhow, overall it was much better than Starbucks/Peets/Grocery store bagged coffee, but still not as good as my favorites from boutique roasters.

You'll need to buy an espresso-focused grinder too. Either a $150+ hand grinder or a $400+ electric grinder.
As for the espresso machine, you can go with a manual machine like a Flair Pro or a Robot if you're just looking for something that can make good espresso and you're willing to use something like an electric milk frother to make okay-quality foamed milk.
As for semi-automatic espresso machines, the single-boiler machines in the $700 range can do decent espresso and milk steaming, but they've got a bit of a learning curve since you'll need to learn how to temperature surf, and they can't steam milk and pull a shot at the same time. The machines with a heat exchanger are in the $1300 range, and they're easier to use, with the added benefit of being able to steam milk and pull a shot at the same time. You'll need to be dilligent about cleaning these machines or you'll ruin them.

The puck resistance is determined by how fine your grind is. If you grind too coarse, your shot will run too fast and you'll get sour, weak espresso. If you grind too fine, your shot will run too slowly and you'll have a shot that's disgustingly bitter, or it might even be so fine that it chokes the flow almost completely.
Most of the cheaper grinders can't adjust finely enough, so you're stuck between a shot that runs too quickly or too slowly when your grinder is in its "espresso" range. An espresso-focused grinder either has stepless (infinitely variable) adjustment capability, or very fine steps that allow you to dial in the grind size to what you need it to be.

It’s coffee. They are whole beans, just with a hint of flavor added to them. Tastes really good actually. Think of like flavored sparkling water—it’s that level of flavoring. Not overpowering, the coffee is still the main flavor.

It was mostly just an experiment but it actually did turn out well. The cold brew has a minty aftertaste to it.

I've never bought any other caffe, than Barcaffe from our local store and it's just fine and good for serving the purpose.

However, I want to try out something new and explore different flavours, etc.. Where do I even begin:

1. Do I have to grind my own beans?
2. Where do you even buy exotic caffe/beans, other than websites?
3. Do I need a caffe machine or some other equipment, if I want to experience the true flavour?

I'm a firm believer of keeping coffee as simple as possible, not adding bells or whistles to the process, and overcomplicating things. If you're doing a step for show, cut it, as it's unnecessary.
I should hate siphons, but for some reason I don't. They are deceptively flashy in their brew method. It's actually a very complex brew process and shits all over the aeropress.
I just wish I had the time and patience to invest into them.

That was exactly my thoughts after trying it as well, better than other immersion/percolation brews like the clever dripper too. Constant temperature and a drawdown that doesn't choke with the slight vacuum. The cloth filter is a great midpoint between paper and metal filters balancing oils and clarity. My friend who made it added the coffee after the water all went up which made for a more precise brew than leaving in the grounds as the water rises. The fact that it's fascinating to look at is just a bonus.

Moka pot brews under VERY LIGHT pressure with a concentrated ratio of coffee to make poor man's espresso. Siphone is a fancy science way to make ermersion coffee(like frenchpress) where you have more total control over the brew, and the ability to pull and filter oils and debris from the coffee.

I just replaced my v60 with a chemex. This shit is incredible. I always thought it was just another pour over.

Lately I've been doing the method where you brew it directly into ice. I'm even using cheap pre-ground Columbian from Costco and it's coming out tasting like something from a nicer coffee shop.
