    2. Coffee Roaster In Birmingham

    Lately there are a LOT of Chinese knockoff coffee roasters and copy coffee grinders around on ebay so as we're into coffee roasters please don't waste your money on inferior roaster copies which are NOT up to quality standards nor will they roast as you'd expect them to.

    The ones to look for are copies of:

    Hearthware i-Roast
    Hearthware i-Roast2
    Hearthware Precision Coffee Roaster


    AVOID also, flat bottomed Stir Crazy popcorn makers which ebay Sellers are trying to list as Coffee Roasters...they are a waste of good money!!

    If you find anything on ebay which is a copy then post below to keep our users aware

    After only 15 months of use, the grinder's gearbox has failed, and making an awful noise as it attempts to turn the burrs; this also happened to the older model I had, the 270W, so I've contacted Baratza, in the US, and they confirmed that it was a KNOWN issue in the 270W and 270Wi gearboxes, so I'm now hoping that they will replace this part for FREE even though the Warranty lapsed in January 2020.

    Will update soon!

    I'm getting into the habit of making a good siphon/syphon brew with my Cona 'science' tubes and all I can say is that it's a learning curve and getting it to the right strength and temperature is an art but an interesting method of brewing. Have you tried it [you]?
    What Syphon equipment do you have? ...

    After some years in the making (2012), and a Kickstarter event, UniTerra have finally launched the UniTerra Nomad Espresso Machine to the masses. It features a double action pump, 9 bars of pressure ( no pressurized filter basket involved!), and takes 17 grams of freshly roasted 'fine' ground coffee.

    On my recent trip to Hong Kong at the beginning of December 2017, I met up with the former World Barista Champion, Chan Chak Sum, who truly impressed me with 3 versions of his intricate works of Latte Art I've seen to date; it took around a minute or so to produce, but well worth the wait, with such smooth micro foam to savour gently down; enjoy:

    Just arrived back from Chicago, and was thrilled to find a decent café and coffee roaster: Intelligentsia Coffeebar

    I made it a regular stop during my 10 days there, and the Black Cat Organic Espresso served was bright, sweet, and dark, and cut through milk perfectly!

    Flavor Notes: Caramel, Honeydew Melon, Dark Chocolate.

    On my last day there, it was either my good looks , or just good luck, but the chap who was serving, ...
