Topic: Nice brew method (3 msgs / 56 lines)
1) From: Jeff Kalikstein
I Just thought I'd share the results of a nice experiment I had with my
SL-90.  In the spirit of the 6oz./coffee suisse thread I started a few days
ago, I started playing with my new SL-90 (I love it).  I warn you, the
ristretto fans of the group might be offended, but bear with me.
I use a light roasted, mild coffee, ground to about 5 clicks coarser than
espresso (sorry, I didn't roast the coffee I tried this with, so I can't
give you exact details about the blend and roast).  I pack it into the
single, pressurized portafilter, and select the "6" size double on the
Solis.  The result is a coffee stronger than regular brew, but incredibly
smooth.  I think this is great.  I'm going to try it on a batch of kona that
should be here soon.
Just thought I'd share,
jeff

What grinder are you using?  Obviously, 5 clicks on a Rocky is less
variance than 5 clicks on a Solis.

How hard did you tamp?

I'm using an MDF.  On a Rocky, it might be closer to 10 clicks coarser.  I
don't measure my tamping pressure, but with such a coarse grind, i don't
know that it's as important as for espresso.
