    WTS Espresso accessories

    I have acquired a few extra accessories over the past two years. Up for sale is a 58 mm tamper and 20 oz frothing pitcher. The tamper is from Rattleware and is solid stainless steel. It has a nice weight and feel in hand. I have a duplicate that I tend to favor due to the rounded handle. This...

    Columbus coffee fest

    Today I went to the Columbus coffee festival at the Ohio village. Had a great time sampling coffee from 18 local roasters/coffee shops. Also had quite a caffeine buzz by the end of it. Picked up a bag of hambela from Brioso coffee. It has a wonderful aroma and very clear fruit taste. It was...

    Mont Blanc pen

    So my father in law just got back from China on a business trip with a gift as is customary with Chinese executives. I thought someone here would have an idea of what it is.

    Grinder issue

    I purchased a setup for espresso last year including a Gaggia baby twin and MDF grinder. Everything has worked well this year and been a good investment to learn on. The grinder was from eBay with at least a year of use. I was having issues getting a normal flow for espresso, it was going way to...

    Gaggia baby twin problem

    Not sure if anyone here can help but thought it was worth a try. I bought a Gaggia baby twin about a year ago (only 6 month warranty on refurb) and was pulling a shot tonight when I noticed it was not coming through. Thinking I tamped too hard or grind was too fine I redid it with no change in...

    Coffee tour for Christmas

    I was out with my wife today and she mentioned going to a coffee shop of my choice since we were in downtown Columbus. I found Cafe Brioso was close to us and it had been on my list of places to go. When we got there she handed me one of the Columbus coffee tour cards on the counter and told me...

    Bought a new grinder!

    Picked up my first electric grinder off the bay tonight, a Gaggia MDF! I feel like I got a good deal considering it was over $100 less than they retail for. I had been looking at the Baratza Preciso but couldn't get past all the bad reviews with quality issues for almost 3 times as much. I hope...

    Weber vs RR Stealth

    I am facing a dilemma, not that I need either but I have funds available for one of them right now. I am considering both (eventually) if the slant is as good as everyone says, but in case I don't like it I know it won't be an issue for it to go on the BST. I don't want to miss out on the...

    Cleaning a tuckaway

    I have done some basic cleaning on this razor with no luck. Not sure what the black marks are or how to get rid of them. Does it need cleaned with something else, polished, or replated maybe?

    Antique store find

    I went to a local antique store today with my daughter and scoured 3 floors of antiques. I first found a floral decorated mug with a rubber set brush but the price was not right. Did not find any razors but I did pick up 2 old spice shaving mugs. The first is similar to others I have seen on b&b...

Currently I am using my first razor (DE89) and the newest one (Progress) I have tried the 37c and R41, while I liked the efficiency of those, they were not smooth or easy shavers for me. I like...
