Kaffelogic for the USA is on Indiegogo

Just speculation here but a 5min roast with 125g batch, stated max capacity, and within that length reaching say second crack is probably beyond the power limits but many variables. Lower fan means you can send more power to the heater, but too low of a fan and you get uneven roasts. It's a balance and different people want different

Thanks, that's what I was looking for. I'll see what I can do. Are those few friends active on any forum?

Not as noisy would make me feel better as well. Any final thoughts on power profiling? Did you try it after the firmware came out that allowed zone 3 to be functional?

Lightsaber portafilter mod

Hi guys: so I've an ultrasaber that I don't use too much for fencing and I feel like the nice soundboard is going to waste, so I want to connect it to my portafilter. It seems that for expobars at least they use a 7/16" UNC thread, and I need to connect it to the lightsaber, nominally

Kaffelogic for the USA is on Indiegogo

For those interested there is fairly active unofficial group on Discord. Here are a few images of experiments I've made with using different probes. It's a bit crude, but did the job. I think it would be fairly straight forward to locate a 2/3mm sheathed probe through the top casing bolt/hole and drill into the bean chamber. Will look

I got the "asian" brand of SPTK 38G grinder

I wrote to 58espresso, and they already replied to me, on Sunday, wow, chapeau. The project is made in S.Korea, and it's produced in China

Newbie Question

Hi, I have a Phillips Lattego 5400. It has functionality to use ground coffee as well as beans. I tried using ground coffee simular to the attached photo (not sainsburys) which says perfect for cafetiere. I tried using this but for some reason it didn't work. I just wanted to check if this is the

I have a question because it's not clear to me, this grinder is made in South Korea or China? The 58espresso website claim to have got a patented for another product in Korea, but their story began in Italy, so quite confusing. Thank you

Arco by goat story

The sound is of a typical planetary gearbox that is fitted on the 200W motor, similar to what can be found in any kitchen mixer. There is no high pressure airflow sound, as in a cleaner, Kyle should pay some acoustics lessons. Check Goat story own video, I posted prev page, #357, at 3:24 for the sound, it is very

Curious about Roasting

See that you went with a Bullet R1. An excellent choice, probably the best there is for home roasting. I found the Bullet slightly too expensive and went with the Kaleido M10 (there's a topic running with my experiences in it). It's probably in the same league as the Bullet but maybe 25% cheaper and far more unknown. Still no
