Quality Blended Beverages?

Started by Taylor E. Sullivan in Retail Coffee Business. Last reply by Jim McKenzie on Thursday. 12 Replies

Does anyone have any suggestions for quality blended drink bases? I don't have experience with creating blended drinks, and am not exactly sure where to start. There are a lot of products out there, but we're getting ready to open a shop up in an expensive area in Northern California and I'm looking for something very high quality. Any thoughts?THANKS!Continue

1L Chemex Pourover Issues - Help

Started by Eric Spivack in Coffee & Roasting on Wednesday. 0 Replies

I just got a Vario-W grinder and tried a 1L Chemex with it which came out underextracted with a low TDS (17.15% & 1.11). I used the 9K setting for the grind and a Bonavita gooseneck at 205deg.The issue I have is that I would go finer with the grind, but the brew time was already ~10mins to pass 1L through the grounds.Thoughts?Continue

Coffee Shop Manager Problems

Started by Molly Arnold in Retail Coffee Business. Last reply by Molly Arnold Jul 18. 13 Replies

I am having a helluva time getting anyone at CSM to respond to my queries on the status of an updated machine I paid for 5 weeks ago. Seems like once the cash is in hand, the service and communication disappear. I have tried emailing T. Bronson, Fred Dilkes, Andrew Valdez, Guy Talluto. Their Facebook page doesn't allow posting. Any one have some contact info? Thanks.Continue

I'm curious if anyone has tried this. I tried to make it at the shop, but it didn't turn out so well. BUT, it was interesting enough to want to keep trying. I was wondering if anyone has tried this with good results. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Continue
