Topic: A visit from the crema doctor (3 msgs / 88 lines)
1) From: alfred
This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
Just a brief report on my visit today with Les Albjerg, who in the =
future, I will affectionately call Dr.Crema.
After his visit today to help a newbie, I am completely cured and =
completely  wired from the shots we sampled thanks to the doctor
Of the four parameters I was using all were wrong.
Mazzer setting: Way too fine
Pre roasted beans from Starbucks    Terrible 
Les brought his own beans which he roasted at home
My tamping technique on a scale of ten    A two 
Needed a lighter tamp and level grinds then a 360 polish
I'll leave his opinion on the quality of the Giotto Premium to Les.
The result;
Crema, the like of which I have never seen
Taste    Molto bene!
Oh by the way he makes tampers too! 
Mine is a beauty.
