Topic: Guatemala Finca San Jos Ocaa (10 msgs / 264 lines)
1) From: Robert Flanery
The taste of this coffee at FC+ is simply amazing!  Has anyone else noticed
how great this coffee is?  The aftertastes are so good I don't want to eat
lunch today.  Just sit here and savor the finish.  I am roasting with an air
popper and it really seems to respond well to this type of roasting.
As much as I love Kenyans, I think I might have found a new favorite.  The
finish is sooooo Sweeeeet!!!
As most of you know, better equipment yields better results.  I am beginning
to want a burr grinder.  I cannot help but wonder how much difference there
is between a blade grinder and a burr.  I wonder becuase I have not had the
chance to experience it for myself.  And this particular coffee really makes
me want to soo what more is to offer.  Does anyone have a recommendation on
an ultra inexpensive burr grinder that works decently?

...Sigh...here we go. I'll be glad to give you my opinion but I already  know 
there will be many who will disagree as is the way of coffee grinder  
discussions. Anyway, the Breville BarAroma Grinder got high marks for a sub $300  
grinder. I make my brew in a FP and this grinder was worked very well for me. If  
you shop around you can pick one up for around $90. Whatever you do stay far  
away from the Braun grinder, its horrible. Coffeegeek.com doesn't sell  
anything but they have tons of reviews for coffee equipment. Enjoy your quest  for 
a grinder!

4) From: Sandy Andina
The Braun is indeed dreadful--had one before I got into espresso, and  
it ground unevenly and choked on beans roasted FC or darker. Feh.  
(Same goes for the Krups, double for the Melitta).  Better off with  
even a whirley.

Robert,
If you need something for under $100, you may wish to check into the
Capresso Infinity 560.  At one point in time it was on my "to buy"
list and Ed Needham often sings the praises of this grinder.

Robert,
Hehe ... wrong button ...

Capresso Infinity 560.  At one point in time it was on my "to buy"
list and Ed Needham often sings the praises of this grinder.  If you
can afford between $100 - $200, then certainly follow miKe's advice
and check out the Baratza line of grinders including the refurbs.
Now, that Guatemala Finca San José Ocaña is also one of my
long-standing favorites.  I just might have to roast up some more of
those precursors to exquisite elixir this coming weekend.

I would say it is like the difference between a black and white picture and
a color picture!

Being a photographer I get that...
I think I will go with the Capresso for awhile and see where it takes us.
Next on the list will be a technivorm.  or if someone has another model in
mind...
I do think I have been getting a pretty good result from using an aeropress
and a hand modified popcorn popper.  My wife wants to get a Behmor due to
the number of off roasts I get trying to pin down the different coffees.
And she is tired of finding chaffe in the darnedest places.  If she didn't
clean so much she would not find so much...
Thanks for the kind advice and input from those that have gone before me.
This is a fun group to follow along with.

More like the difference between a black & white photo and a 3D
Kodachrome slide.
