like its going to another favorite at work (i have a donation jar next to
the grinder and its full of money :)not bad for a bunch of Folg**s
converts) HAPPY ROASTING  Regards   Ray Tolar P.S HAPPY BIRTHDAY LES !!! I
really enjoy your posts, advice on coffee and roasting not to mention the
awesome wood work you do (I'm going to get one of your tampers just to
have it setting on my desk)Hope you had a great birthday and MANY! MANY!

straight double of C+ Costa Rica NCP stuff. Whee- a 15 sec ristretto seemed
wasteful until the first sip!
The bottom line is the experience of the cup, not the partially spent
grounds. The grind, pressure and temperature of the brew may need some
tinkering as well.

Ray,
It's fun to hear of your adventures with your little Crapesso. Glad to
hear that you are having so much fun with it, and that you are
enjoying the product.

The Capresso has become my test bed. As long as you have the temperature and
pressure, you can do an espresso brew. Weakfish heater can be boosted by
filling reservoir with warm water instead of ice water right out of the tap
or filter. Ultimate temperature regulation would remain internal to the
machine, but the heater would have less work to do.
Direct plumbed machine could use a small pre heater. As the hot brewing
water hits the top of the coffee in the filter, it will be any temperature
you set. As it passes through the coffee bed, the temperature and pressure
of the water decrease.
So much for constant temperature and pressure. They can't exist in a
hydrodynamic system. Oh, Jeez- I just did it again! Costa Rica at C+. What a
shot.
The closest you could get to constant temperature and pressure would be to
regulate the pressure at the bottom of the filter for closer to constant
hydrostatic pressure in the bed. I know- the machines that do it are
referred to as "toys." Why? Think it out and disabuse my plan.
Increasing the diameter of the coffee bed would have two advantages. With
the increased area, the unit flow rate through the bed would be reduced, so
maintaining the pressure through the coffee bed.
Shorter path through the pancake shaped bed; slower travel = pressure
maintained. What happens to the temperature and the ultimate extraction
considering the short path and conservation of energy? DIY espresso machine-
designs pending...
First, don't want the grinder to destroy the coffee flavor with heat, but
pre-heat the pf. Good call.

Gentlemen, Start your grinders!
