  1. Brewed Coffee
    Hi All, Hope everyone is well I have a relatively newby type question. I have found this great tasting coffee that works amazingly with the V60 pour over method. I chanced the recipe and by luck found the quantities that give me a taste I like. My recipe is 10g of coffee with a yield of...

    Hey All, I usually get my Gaggia Baby Dose (its about 14 years old I think) professionally serviced, but now I am unemployed I thought I would have a crack at fixing the leak it has recently developed. I am certain this persistent leak is down to the boiler gasket (I have already swapped out...

    Hi, I'm looking to slipstream my morning routine a little. Though it's not much, I'd like to be able to pre-dose a couple 20-30g amounts (e.g. for drip) into small, airtight containers the night before so I can just throw them into the grinder without having to faff with...

    Hi, what degree of repeatability can be expected from a timed dose? I expect there are several factors relating to beans, hopper level, environment and the grinder inlet. I'm interested to hear user experience about which factors affect the dose the most. My grinder is 9 months old and has...

    Just bought a plumbed original L1 on this forum to add to my Vesuvius and Ponte Vecchio Lusso and am in the process of getting to the best basket / dose combination. On my Vesuvius, I dose 18g in an 18g VST basket. When I do the nickel test (or 5p) the dose leaves the correct impression at...

    I've been seeing a lot of soggy pucks which sometimes stick to the shower screen with my DB. I've been dosing 18g and as I've been going finer on the grind I've seen this getting worse. So been doing some reading and I think I've found that leaving too much space in the basket can cause the...

    Can anyone recommend a grind cup for the EK43 that fits the thwacker really closely? I'm currently using the bottom to a Porlex grinder... it leaves a slight gap around the side and I'd like to reduce the amount of coffee dust I get sprayed all over the kitchen

    I have been using my Sage DB for a while now and getting increasingly consistently good results. I purchased some scales and in the double basket, after tamping and using the handy razor tool supplied, I am loading between 20 and 21g in the basket, depending on the bean and grind. I am...

    Good afternoon, Hoping for some pointers re my methodology. Using Fracino Dual Fuel and getting consistent 35g/36g yield from 18g dose, extraction time is around 24/25 secs. Fracino portafilter with VST 18g ridged baskets. Beans just now are Bazilian Ipanema roasted on 10/08/17. The problem...

    I realised today that my instructions included a picture of a single basket and a double basket. Having researched the machine and read reviews as well as looking at PDF instructions that this is a relatively new thing. As previously only a double was supplied? Anyway, I tried it out. The...

    Hi, Just a question out of curiosity... I was wondering how (good quality) coffee shops get consistent doses of coffee repeatedly? Do they use scales? Or do expensive grinders have scales built in to them so that you can just programme the grinder to output 18g (for example) and it does it...

    Does anyone know what is the rated dose for the single, single-wall, 54mm Sage basket? Literally halve the double-dose to 9g, or is more needed for <gs id="873566bc-32b2-41e3-a681-8599a49f530e" ginger_software_uiphraseguid="30450f30-a31d-4f9a-8b65-f7a216f617f1"...

    Hi Everyone I'm just wondering if any of you have experimented with different dose sizes into the 54mm double basket (single wall, obviously) on the Barista Express? I have only started playing with weighing in/out and have only tried 18g in so far, 1:2 ratio pull, 30s but it's too acidic for...

    Hi all, I've got a question in regards to dosing. I've got a Gaggia classic with a double basket and naked PF. I'm weighing in and out and tasting the shots etc - it's good fun with a lot of trial and error (mainly error at the moment). One thing that I've noticed is that often I struggle to...

    I'm using a 17g marked La Marzocco basket in my Rocket Premium plus V3. The previous owner recommended 19g, so I have been weighing the coffee and hitting 19g. I have seen other techniques and videos that fill the basket, collapse, fill, collapse and then sweep off the top such that it is...
  16. All Grinders & Hand-Grinders
    I understand the differences between these 2 grinders, and at these prices, the cost difference in negligible....what I am trying to weigh up is to go for the 'simpler low tech' option, or the option with more features but more electronics....and more to go wrong? I'm not expecting to last as...

    I recently had a bag of coffee I didn't much like (the guilty shall remain nameless!), so I used it to have a bit of a play with the various baskets I have. I kept the grind exactly the same and changed the dose in order to achieve a roughly similar ratio and time across the baskets. Dose ...

    What baskets are you using for your Londinium and what doses do you use? I've been using the ridgeless EspressoParts 14G HQ baskets with a dose of 16.5 grams. This seems to be the maximum dose with that basket as I see a fairly prominent imprint of the dispersion screen when I am done with the...

    I'm interested in peoples dosing methods. I have an mc2 with a timer so i used to set the timer to output around 16g into a small plastic cup. At the time, my scales were 1g and i could normally hit "16g". I then bought some 0.1 g scales and found the dose was varying a bit. Anyway i could...

    Hi guys, I am having difficulty pulling shot with this particular beans I just bought from Pact Coffee. For the volume of the beans, I think these beans are heavier than other beans. I do single dose of 18g into 18g VST basket. (Using Mazzer SJ) Usually pull about 50-60g of shot in 27sec...
