thanks for the tip Tony. I've not looking into the cleaning part yet hehe. i did see there was a solution and tablets, you prefer the tablets?

the atlas is nice. there was a few atlus and tiguan when I went to go look at it. your family is very successor, very nice to hear :)

I like MB, they are very easy to drive. only have experience with the e-class. Which Audi does your daughter have? I'm sporting an old 2005 a4 cabriolet. very fun to drive :) but takes alot of gas. each week it's $85-$90 zzzzzz

ooh very cool. gas is like $7 in OC california, in LA it will be more. I'd probably look into a hybrid. going to UCLA?

The premium is about $90 USD for 17 gallons. We get 420 miles out of that. Since it’s basically a weekend / errands car that lasts us the whole month.

I got these from a local roaster. I've been using 18grams in and 38-40 out at 28 seconds.

sorry I didn't take a picture of the final shot and I have no more of the beans to show. the flavor wasnt anything special so I used them as trials.

I had good timing last year and picked this up to replace my Explorer Sport. Gets pretty good fuel economy and works very good in the snow.

And I'm looking at getting a superauto espresso machine for the house at the moment funny enough

i'm still checking in here and there. not much to post. currently been looking at expresso machines :P

I’ve been slacking and just saw this. I’m a major coffee nerd and am down to talk about espresso machines at any point. Currently running a Breville Dual Boiler but there are so many fantastic machines out there right now.

Ha it’s pretty decent though I normally just drink shots these days.

The oracle is nice and the guts are basically the same as the dual boiler, I really like a Ev an external grinder and going through the manual process.

nice set up. not only one, but two acaia scales? damm lol how are they? I got cheap and went timemore. and is that the 3k+ grinder? you're not going full manual unless you get a hand grinder, better add that to the tools lol

i'm struggling with the latte art, i think i'm not getting the milk right in the first place. playing with latte first at the moment because it's what I wanted to have for getting a machine. then i'll focus on shots after.

what's your favorite brand beans?

I see only one scale, the other is a warmer? I have a digital scale too, but soon it only to set up the shot with new coffee beans.
