Topic: lever action (7 msgs / 80 lines)
1) From: Les
Alchemist John and I went through over a pound of espresso on 3 lever
machines this afternoon.  Talk about a caffeine buzz!  We expanded our
knowledge of lever machines in particular and basic espresso pressure
extraction.  Most of our shots were pulled on a modified Pavoni that
has a pressure gauge so you can read the pressure of the pull.   You
can follow the thread over on home-barista.  One of the major things
we learned is that you can collapse the puck at about 160 psi.  Once
it is collapsed, the shot is shot!  I hope this is a teaser for you to
check out the details.  I am not going to steal any of Alchemist
John's thunder, but I would say I learned more in our 4 hour session
than I have learned in the last few years!  It was very revealing.

I'm so jealous of everyone who gets together! It always sound like such fun.

Les, John,
Exceptional body of work.  A lot of work.
Now, how to translate it to a spring loaded La Cimbali.......would take some
really major mods.
Mike (just plain)

After 5 years I finally found a fellow roaster in Hawaii.

I guess since they have PNWGs, the rest of us are going to have to
confederate and come of with ROUG (rest of us gatherings)
