Topic: We have crema (2 msgs / 62 lines)
1) From: Yakster
So, I brought out my lowly, thrifted, de-pressurized DeLonghi Bar 140
espresso machine that I had fitted with a Elektra A Leva Double Portafilter
Basket and gave it another try with my new hand grinder.
What a difference, loads of crema and not a bad tasting espresso shot with
Yemeni beans.  I had just about given up on this piece of plastic and was
looking at pooling some birthday and maybe Christmas money together to
upgrade, but I really don't want to spend the money right now so I'm
surprised and happy that I'm able to get something usable out of this
thing.  It really proves that the grinder is critical and the Cuisinart I
picked up a while ago from Costo is just not going to cut it for espresso.
I'll be more then happy to hand-grind the beans for these kind of results.
I know I'm not going to get a "god shot" out of this, but as 99% of the
coffee I drink now is AP (Aeropress), it's not worth the expense to me to
upgrade.
I may even have to grind finer coffee powder and try Turkish Coffee now.
