I just realized I drink D&D every day. It's what we grind in the "grind n' brew o'mattic" at home.

Hey, today is Friday. That means it's almost time for another Coolatta weekend!

Ron, I figured out what I'm getting you for Christmas:

NOW THAT"S FUNNY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

IF you have a grind and brew, why not buy some good beans to put in there? They're only a couple of dollars more......

I will say...some of that stuff is about the same as a bag of D&D.

yup, granted most are 12 oz bags. They roast, then ship the next day. What you get are amazingly fresh and flavorful beans. D&D is fine coffee, but you really should try some of thier stuff. If you are making espresso, the Tuscano blend is my absolute favorite. Makes incredible FP coffee as well.

....and hernias, and ED, and colourblindness (but only Gary's).....

Ron, the grinder is awesome! Love it! Perfect shots, time after time.  As long as I don't spazz out and get the tamp all crooked and skewed, it's a dream.  I really like the doserless design, too.  Just hold the portafilter under the spout, push the button, and fill 'er up.  Level it, tap on the counter, tamp 'er down real gentle, and sweet elixir comes out every time.  Nice!  The Espro clicking tamper really helps...makes it repeatable and consistent.  I really like it, as it takes one more variable out of the equation of aiming for perfect shots.

As far as I know, it's a very similar design to your Mazzer, but not stepless.  Each step gives about a five to six second increase or decrease in shot volume, which is just fine for me.  And I can switch to french press or moka pot grind in no time.

Cheers,

Svend

PS -- I used to have the ability to post pics here, but that privilege seems to have been taken away.  Can't find a way to insert an image...clicking Additional Options doesn't show the insert image option....can anyone help with this?
