Poison,

Have you met any real coffee snobs that use and enjoy the Keurig with a good grinder, reusable Kcup, and good beans?

The temp settings allow the water to get up to 192 degrees, which is good, and it seems like it would be able to hold the temp for the entire brew. However, the Keurig brews a cup in 25 seconds. Is that too short?

Allawd, no eta, gotta burn through current stock.

Nonissan, a keurig should make a fine cup, as long as its good coffee fresh ground. Do it, if you feel the urge!

Moosecakes, yes. I was afraid for my safety. they were not happy.

Alright Poison, another question that you've been over a million effin times I'm sure.

I've got nothing to make a good cuppa. We have a nice Keurig, and the K-cup coffee for it sucks, obviously. However, I dont drink a ton of coffee at a time, so I like the Keurig. Therefore, I bought the My K-cup reusable filter deal, and will be buying some of your beans as well as some locally roasted. All I need is a decent grinder. I'd like it to be not an out of this world priced machine though. The Rockys are around 400. Some Gaggias around 200. Recommendations? Anything decent enough to grind up something to run through the Keurig around 100-150?

I did notice my inlaws have the reusable cups. Should I tell them to dial the temp up as high as it will go and let er rip?

Sure, as long as its around 200 degrees. I should really get my hands on one and see how it is. Regardless, if someone likes a Keurig, using the reusable pod with fresh coffee will blow away the ancient nasty stuff most people use.

It's not, Temp. I can't roast 1/2lbs. If you order with someone, I could split 1lb of coffee into 1/2lb bags. I can fit up to 4lbs in a flat rate box, or eight 1/2lb bags.

How's it going, Temp?

I'm headed over to Astra to look at their machines. I'm considering starting a high end espresso service for events, and I need a beefy machine.

I'd take it over a silvia any day. But part of me says either buy a gaggia, or spend the extra and get an hx. If you are patient, and scan the coffeegeek classifieds daily, you could get an hx for$500-$700.

I got a pretty good deal on the regular PL04($299 shipped, no tax)and it has been flawless at pulling shots. I may install a PID controller later before stepping up to another machine.

I been enjoying Tanzania Peaberry all weekend. It's some good stuff. Next round, I think I will get some Ethiopian Longberry Harrar. I love that one.

Oh, wow. Astra was cool. Very personable guy, the owner. He let me pull shots on the machine I need. The internals are absolutely gorgeous; over-built, and super-clean and tidy. Very, very well made. Greg scace tested this model and it's incredibly temperature stable.

They also have a home only model, called the astra pro. It has the same internals as the gourmet I was using. When I say 'the same', I mean the same: same boiler, same fittings, same fireproof wiring, same monstrous pressurestat...the only difference is the pump, which is vibe, not rotary. They buy a 55watt pump, and tweak it to their liking, with a pressure bypass. The machine is really pretty, much prettier than the gourmet.

So...he asked if I would be interested in selling them. The pro model goes for $1000. That's cheaper than a new Expobar Pulser or any other new E61 HX, and the workmanship and components are far, far better. It's the best deal on the market, no question.

Would anyone here be interested?

I'm just going to buy a pound or three myself. No worries on the sampler deal. I was waiting until the grinder got here, and it showed up yesterday. I bought the refurb'd Baratza. I should be ordering fairly soon. My girl wants me to wait until after Valentines Day to order as she wants to buy me some locally roasted beans as a gift. We shall see.

We just got a Keurig last night.

The default temp is 194. :giddy:

Sure, the stock coffee probably sucks, but I'm not an elitist... so am gonna try it all to see how bad. Also, need to play with the brew times and see if I should make them stronger or weaker (5 different pour settings). I'm sure that's going to make a big difference in the coffee.

Whee!
