    Modern Espresso vs traditional

    Quick update! i run steady on the minimum (finest) grind level on the bodum bistro. I tried 16-17-18 grams in. Extract is 23 seconds. 18 is difficult to fit in the basket. 16-17 is all right. While 16 is lighter, I believe that 17 is the one. I will probably need to attack the water next...

    Yes, it’s wrapped in most cases but yes.

    It’s an interesting piece of information but, it’s more like a guide than a rule. The shave stick container has holes on top…

    Little Martin De Candre help please?

    On the French forums, they only recommend MdC. It’s a really nice soap but…. To be honest… if they would sell a puck refill, it would drive the price down quite a bit. i think that if you could sample a piece, that would be best. I often look for the deal but didn’t find it yet. I would be...

    Shave Sticks Review Project

    To make any updates easier, I've created a wiki page. I also changed the ratings a bit so it's better than listing them like in post 1 https://www.badgerandblade.com/forum/wiki/Shave_Sticks_Review_Project

    Where is the Tallow?!

    I believe the next step is how does it compare with the previous formulation?

    Around 5 days in. Setting on the grinder to the minimum (finest). I do a 17 grams in and get a steady shot in 23 seconds. I might need to go a notch finest but it doesn't allow me. I will work with the grinder for now and see if I can get a better cup but so far, it's better. The taste is...

    It’s some kind of cone in the middle. I will try to take a picture later

    Grinder got here finally. I know it’s not the best out there but it will get me started. I got a good deal on that bodum bistro. A bit less than 100$ cdn. First grind went to trash. second grind on the espresso setting (minimum). The grind is uniform. I timed the extraction at 23 seconds...

    I’m probably overthinking this yes. It just doesn’t add up and by far. Anyways, when the grind is regular, it will possibly be easier

    Modern Espresso vs traditional

    I have my first situation... Let's call it like that... I either do not understand the ratios at all versus timing. In the modern espresso method, you would need to do a 1:2 ratio. So, let say that I put 18 grams of coffee in, I should get around 36 grams of coffee. Now, if I measure the...

    Sure, I got an entry level burr grinder. I will probably invest in a better one later but it should get me started. it will probably be better than my el cheapo Krupp 20$ grinder.
