Using washers on portafilter spouts

Started this discussion. Last reply by Steven Svoboda Nov 2, 2011. 4 Replies

At our shop, we use an old La San Marco and the portafilter spouts have developed the ol' "don't tighten to the center anymore" syndrome.  A guy from our roaster was recently here and mentioned that…Continue

Dead shots

Started this discussion. Last reply by Phil Roberts Aug 16, 2011. 3 Replies

I thought this might make for a fun conversation piece:  does letting a shot sit and cool affect it's taste in a negative way? I don't think anybody's arguing that the taste doesn't change but it's…Continue

Small Note to BXers

Posted on October 27, 2011 at 8:40am 0 Comments

Just posting a small blog to say that the posts you've found (and hopefully read) here on BX are a sampling of the posts on my blog site.  If you desire to read more words that have spewed forth from the fountain that is my keyboard, then you should head over there.

Coffee Kills Kittens

Posted on October 27, 2011 at 8:32am 0 Comments

When I was a kid, I was afraid of anything that might be the slightest bit good for my health.  I avoided eating anything green, soy, or low-fat like it was poison, which was very difficult given my mother's persistence in buying food rich in vitamins and hiding it in my sugar.  She would cook broccoli into my brownies and carrots into my cake!  The nerve!  In retaliation, I decided I would mask everything even remotely good for me in sugar.  Every morning when I got a bowl of Chex, it was… Continue

OMG! They're Dead!

Posted on October 27, 2011 at 8:31am 0 Comments

A few days ago, I made a latte with dead shots.  They weren't even old shots.  They weren't on their last legs, in need of a transfusion, or on life support in critical condition.  They were dead.  For those of you who aren't cued into coffee lingo, a dead shot has supposedly become gross and decomposition-y after having been made and let to sit.  Some people say they go dead after 30 seconds and some say a minute.  The point is that apparently shots of espresso have the life span of a mayfly,… Continue

Quality on Vinyl

Posted on October 27, 2011 at 8:30am 0 Comments

Okay, so I'm at Stumptown in Portland right now and I order an espresso, latte, and scone.  Am I a worse person for the fact that I, one, see a man behind the bar with about a day's worth of growth and think "he must be new" and, two, hope that the person pulling my shots has a proper "barista" level beard?  There was, however, a person working behind the bar with no facial hair whose gender was in question (turned out it was a girl) so I automatically felt that he or she was more… Continue
