Please grind that would be awesome! Thank you so much, it is so sweet that you are sending this to us!! I will let you know when I receive it. I have a big move this weekend to VA myself, my husband got us set up at our place in VA which is the address you have for shipping and I will finally be a resident there. No longer a Muncie Indiana girl. So, I will not be on BX as frequently until June 16th. Then we take off on getting the build out for the bar and August is the projected opening date. dd
I actually moved back to my hometown in nov : ( and it's seriously lacking good coffee. I visit pgh alot though just for coffee. Haha. Big Dog Coffee just opened up on the south side and it's AMAZING! They brew intelligensia. Love them!
Thanks for the compliment Jesse. I'm really glad you work for Gimme. Just yesterday, I was wishing I knew someone who works there. I bought the PDF Gimme barista manual yesterday and then received an email with a code for 25% off my next coffee order. I've recently had your Rwanda Epiphanie, Panama Hartmann Honey, and Costa Rica La Unión Relationship Coffee, and was impressed by all three. I want to order something new, which Gimme coffee is your favorite?
ok well after working on the Simonelli for over a month, my milk has improved so much.The best angle honestly is to keep the vertical part of the wand at a 90 degree angle to your milk when (briefly) frothing, then when you bring your pitcher up (nice and deep) to create the vortex, i angle it a bit more toward the machine, and I'vebeen looking for a certain sound which is where the magic happens. I guess this sounds pretty common to any steaming technique, so yes it just takes getting used to, but its so damn smooth! If you're ever in the NYC area let me know, Peekskill is only 45 min. north of the city, and you'd be welcome to stop in and jam out and get some experience in!
