  • Ross Droplet Technique-Eliminating Grinder Static

    home-barista.com 14 May '17, 8pm

    I attempted to reply to an old thread, Reducing Grinder Static , but it's been locked due to age so I'm starting a new thread to break out a nugget posted on the The New HG One Grinder: The Home Test thread, that adding one or two droplets of water to the beans before grinding resolve...

  • Olympia vs Pavoni - taste

    home-barista.com 16 Mar '17, 11am

    I suspect that the preference is not based on taste of the product, but on the amount of effort required to get to that taste as well as the tendency of La Pavoni to "cheapen" their product in time. The Pavoni cheapening has led to an overall decline in product quality in my opinion. ...

    3 x Vintage lever find in South Africa

    home-barista.com 27 Feb '17, 11am

    I haven't posted in years. I have been busy moving my roastery and opening more shops so not much time for rebuilds and coffee geekery. But two days I managed to bag three vintage levers in South Africa, which is very rare to do because we don't have a very old coffee culture here and...

  • Junk Science finally hits coffee

    home-barista.com 12 Feb '17, 2pm

    Yeah that checks a lot of the boxes. What stands out to me is the mention of "toxicity" which has become the alt-health bugaboo. Another way the woo science is impacting coffee I've heard of is the "alkaline water" craze. I was initially curious since theoretically that might have an ...
