A friend of mine and I travelled yesterday up to Cary, NC to Crema Roasters to get a couple pounds of espresso.
Kevin gladly responded by saying, “You want some espresso I am working on?” Meaning it was going to be a test.
“Sure thing. You got my attention”
- Ethiopian Guji
- Costa Rica La Pastora
- Columbian Hvila
- Brazil Pedre Grande
- Sumatra Mandilin
Well if this is a test, please let me grade this with a “Oh, my word!”
Look, I am not trying to toot my own horn, either. But, Mark said the espresso tasted better out of my machine (Faema). Kevin’s is a temp stable La Marzocco FB/80. This almost has to be a temprature issue – IMHO. I know that machine runs hot, almost 205. I am running in the 199-201 range, according to everything Shannon and I discussed. Ahh, alas I need a Scace of my own with a data logger.
