1) From: Malvene Lemerick
Hi Joseph,
Our machine is a Appia and I do believe my husband is looking after the
screens and group gaskets. at least I hope so. J   With 3 or 4 coffees a day
I am hoping this machine is going to last us the rest of our life!  However,
we do seem to get a lot more company these days and they all want  and enjoy
the coffee.
We looked into getting a filter system but it seems the water in our area,
Vancouver BC, is so good that it was not really necessary.
Thanks for taking the time to share your knowledge.
Cheers
Malvene
Malvene,
Nice auction score on the commercial machine. Is is an Aurelia like mine. We
use in our coffee shop. Real nice work horse. Sept. will be three years in
service. Keep your screens and group gaskets fresh and your pours will sing.
Did you get a nice filter system in place for it? Very important on these
single boilers.
Happy shots to you,,,
Cheers,
Joseph

Back to list quietness, I kinda miss the conversations coming to me, in my inbox. At the same time, I kinda don't miss having to delete hundreds of emails if i missed a few days of reading.
I'm still roasting but on the wholesale side.  And honestly am roasting beans that are non-SW...which makes me sad but for my wholesale purposes the jute bags are what I need.If I had a retail space I would certainly be buying from Tom and the Shrub...still want to make a purchase or two in the future to try out on my website, see if there's enough interest in web orders for SPECIAL, Limited Availability Coffees...because that certainly is what Tom and the SW operation offers, very very special, GREAT coffees.  Been hard, nearly impossible to find the same customer service AND quality on the wholesale side.
I've recently fallen in love with the Aeropress.  Grind on a Baratza Virtuoso.  Don't follow the printed directions though, uses way too much coffee and melts the enamel on my teeth.  Found my own ratio/recipe that works great.  At home, if it's not the Aeropress then it's the CCD.  At the shop it's always shot of espresso or brewed pots.

Hi Mike,
Glad to hear you were spared by the twisters.  I was wondering if you had made it.  I have fond memories of Birmingham and visiting my girl friend who was a student at Auburn, too.  
I'm not on the scale of that, but a friend of mine is.  He runs Utopian Coffee and the challenge for him sounds eeriely similar to yours.
