Hi folks,My husband and I are in the process of opening a coffee bar. We have a detailed business plan but neither one of us has ever worked in a cafe so we're both a little clueless when it comes to typical start of day/end of day procedures in a cafe. Does anyone have a checklist they'd mind sharing?Cheers,LuceContinue

Coffee facing on new diedricht IR-12

Started by ryan orth in Coffee & Roasting on Friday. 0 Replies

Hello all,I recently purchased a brand new IR-12 after using an older Toper for 7 years. I have a problem with widespread facing on most Coffees regardless of origin when roasting 20# or more(20# is a standard run for me). Thing is when I drop to say 15# runs, I get beautiful Coffee. This leads me to believe either the cadence on the drum is not fast enough for larger loads OR the drum is just too new(yes, I followed seasoning protocol). Anyone else have any experience with this? Visually, you…Continue

La Marzocco 4 Head Espresso Machine $4,250

Started by Michael LeDonna in Classifieds. Last reply by Michael LeDonna May 11. 2 Replies

       We have drastically reduced the price on this machine as we need to sell it!         This is a La Marzocco Special Edition, with the red wraparound fiberglass body built on the Linea frame. It is a fully automatic machine, although it can be used easily solely as a semi (as we do in our cafe with our other La Marzocco). It was just reconditioned, as can be seen from the pictures....The only thing we didn't do was recondition the boiler, whoch didn't have any signs of lime or distress.  …Continue

Production Roaster Upgrade

Started by Sarah Leanne Barnett in Coffee & Roasting. Last reply by Mike McGinness May 11. 1 Reply

I'm about to upgrade in the next month by installing a new US Roaster Corp 12 kilo. I've roasted (COUNTLESS BATCHES) in the past five years on a US Roaster Corp 3 kilo. Has anyone ever taken this journey in upgrading? Were there any learning curves or helpful adjustments that made your life easier? I'm excited, but I'm also looking for any wisdom offered to me by folks who have done this before.xoxoContinue
