I just dug in to my first bag of the sample pack as well. Surprisingly, I actually don't like the Ethiopia Wote. That blueberry taste is just too strong and funky for me in my coffee.

I have loved the previous bag I bought (I don't remember the kind or roast) from WCR maybe a year ago though, and I look forward to trying the other three bags in the sampler pack.

ok so I went to the store today and ****ed up haha. Got home and saw I accidentally bought whole beans in my hurry to get out of the store. Question is, what can I use to grind my beans. I have a drip coffee pot with a grinder built in, but is there anything else I can use? i.e a magic bullet or something of the like?

If you take it to Starbucks or a coffee shop they will normally grind it for you.

Go back to the store and run the beans through their grinder.

I'm sorry, you're asking what you can use to grind your coffee beans... other than your coffee grinder?

Uncle, just be sure you don't pour boiling water. It should be 195-200. Pick up a thermometer if you need to, it makes a massive e difference.

we have to manually verify the temp of the drilling fluid they use to drill the ho's....and there are 2 or 3 instant read thermometers laying around the work trailer here that i use....i just gotta remember to wash them off before i use them or

actually...there was a brand spankin new one in the drawer of this work trailer when we got here that just might have appropriated for other than intended purposes

dont know for sure....but....

I've been lurking in this thread for a few months, and you guys finally got to me. Based on the OP, decent reviews, and a $75 off sale, I bought a Gaggia Pure on Saturday. It's currently winging its way to me as we speak. My current machine is a $50 Krups deal, so I'm expecting this one to be leaps and bounds better!

My only point of concern is a few reviews mentioned you really need a $300+ grinder to really see the Pure shine. My current burr grinder isn't anywhere near that nice, but it seems to accomplish my drip and FP needs adequately - what could possibly go wrong here?

Congrats on the pure! Espresso is a bit pickier on surface area than drip. I think you will still be very pleased with it. I love mine. Now start saving for the new grinder. It makes everything better. Better press. Better drip. Better espresso . Oh, and buy nates beans!

The Capresso Infinity works well for me so far, it can go very fine and is consistent. The only real complaint is it's slightly tedious to clean.

Like I said in a previous post, my Bodum Cafe grinder will go just barely coarse enough for FP, and can grind fine enough to choke my Gaggia. The Whole Latte Love reviews and Coffeegeek both say it's not good enough for REAL espresso, but my experience disagrees. Yes, you need a good burr grinder, but you don't have to spend $texas to get one.

It also has a glass cup, instead of a plastic one, which cuts way down on the static problems and makes it a lot easier to clean.

Just ordered two lbs. Stoked.

Got a lb of Ethiopia Yirgacheffe #1 Wote Konga and a lb of Costa Rica Hernan Solis Villa Sarchi. Both sounded really good.

I just moved my capresso espresso machine to my office... and ordered a new Gaggia for the house. I'll be using it with a modded Capresso Infinity. Hope it does OK until I'm willing to spring for a Baratza.
