    I have different beans here: One has a choclate-nuts flavour, another has a choclate-apple flavour And a friend said: That is all interesting, but can you make that kind of cappuchino which i get in 99,9% of coffees or restaurants? And yeah, he is right... the cappuchinos there have no taste...

    I noticed that an espresso where i forget a bit about variables like if it hits the perfect gram output etc. (because i have put no scale below it to control) tastes always better than one where i can control it and maybe notice that "it's not totally perfect" Anybody else knows this? I have...

    Well, to be honest, i only like beans with the flavour "like choclate". (Btw: How do they create those flavours?) I really HATE things e.g. the fruit taste some beans have.
  5. Gaggia Forum
    Hi there. I've bought a 2nd hand gaggia classic, the sticker on the bottom says 11/2001. I have noticed that water coming out the brew head has a sweet taste. I know this is subjective, but that's what it tastes to me. After searching online I now think this may be a metallic taste after all -...

    Hey there! I am pretty new in the Silvia family and I simply cannot find the correct coarseness setting for producing proper espresso Attached are three photos of the current coffee ground, of which I put 15g into the double basket. When extracting, I let the water flow though the...

    Hello, I would be very interested in a direct comparison of the Mazzer Major and Kony by means of coffee taste? Has anyone ever made a direct comparison of the two grinders? holgr

    In London there are a great deal of independent coffee shops, many served by knowledgable bearded staff. The coffee invariably tastes infinitely better than coffee served in chains. Take as espresso for instance, it is normally far richer in taste and stronger too. Why is this? Is it the beans...
  10. Barista Skills for the home enthusiast
    Hi, Ive been trying quite few things now from changing my coffees, changing temperatures etc. My coffee as a milk based drink tastes very blunt and doesn't taste rich in flavour and tastes more like watered down coffee. With no real taste at all compared to what i got from my rocket machine...
  11. Brewed Coffee
    Hi all, I am wondering how you guys adjust your brews based on taste. I am aware of Barista Hustle's Coffee Compass: https://baristahustle.com/blogs/barista-hustle/the-coffee-compass I have trouble when a coffee is tasting flat almost flavourless. Both the descriptors "dull" and "empty" are...
  12. Coffee Lounge
    Hey so me and a few friends at the store are going to have a competition where we develop and make our own signature espresso based drinks. You see we thought it would be a good idea to have a beverage that is unique to our store. And were taking it seriously, so sugary syrupy creamy dessert...

    can anyone tell me whats the strongest coffee available in the UK, in taste.
  14. Gaggia Forum
    I've been backflushing my classic every now and again, maybe not as often as i should so last night i had a good session on the machine cleaning etc... I started to do this as I am struggling to tell too much of a difference between different coffees and am starting to wonder if my machine is...

    I've paid MacIntyre Coffee a visit on Saturday and for the first time tried an EK based shot from the Modbar machine (very impressive piece of kit). It tasted more like a brewed shot rather than espresso (I think this is something quite often mentioned about the EK) and in general very different...

    I have been 'into' coffee for barely five months now, during which time a lot of water has flowed under my particular bridge, as it were. I started out with a cheapo Cookworks from Argos, very soon upgraded to a S/H Gaggia New Baby with Silvio wand, then leapt up to my 'dream machine', a QM...

    Does anyone have any thoughts on titanium nitride coated burrs versus steel ones, in the cup, as it were? I know longevity is a massive factor in favour of TiN, but how about flavour? I'm assuming that all other variables are unchanged... just the burrs. Tony.
  18. Coffee Lounge
    I have read numerous comments about grinders affecting the taste in the cup. How does this work? I have been using a Sage Pro grinder and for a 1:2 ratio pour in 30 seconds. I have just ground the same beans in my Elektra grinder to get the same ratio and pour times but th shot tastes much...

    That smokers lose the taste of coffee...is this true? G

    Hi all, a newbie here, with a little problem ! Some time ago, (this year), I bought some ground coffee from Tesco. It was phenomenal !! However I didn't keep the packaging. All I remember, is, it was not expensive.( although cost is not the issue here ) I've since bought loads of different...
