Welcome to Srid's public journal of coffee making!
  • Decided to redial the Comandante, and found that it was dialed in at 15 when I thought it was at 12. Which is pretty strange … and maybe a Fault (either in the grinder or in my memory). At least, so far I’ve not been making 1850 Midnight Gold at the intended grind size. Redialled to grind 13 (rest the same - 15g; 150g) today. Less Lemony (about same as 16th, however), some new crema, still Meh.

    Trying Inverted Method for Yirgacheffe and increased Comandante grind dial to 18 (from 15*), which lead to a more pronounced Aroma during grind incidentally – as well as increased the Brew Time from the usual 1:25 to 2:25 minutes (as well as used a Thermometer to measure Water Temperature at 185f) – and the taste is much more full flavoured than previous cups. This is an Improv, and I’ll try the inverted only going forward. Very Good taste, and and very close to Excellent cup … definitely in comparison to the last few days.

    assuming I remember the last one correctly; see the 2021-09-18 misdial note
