Either way, always good to find other coffee people.

Speaking of coffee, I had my Breville dual boiler in for repairs and for a replacement back but the replacement had some issues. Sending that one back in and getting a new one sent out. Regular dual boilers were out of stock so they’re sending me their dual boiler / smart grinder pro combo. But that I have any use for the grinder but their customer service is excellent.

is it bad to complain about an upgrade? lol I would think I wouldnt want the extra grinder, taking up space and not wanting to see it. Is it the one that auto tamps too?

Ha yeah I wasn’t going to complain. I have zero use for it though, it seems to be a decent entry level grinder. I’ll see if I can find someone who could use an upgrade or just sell it for cheap.

i mean.. i would complain if i was in that situation. i just want the one thing I want. Unless you give me something like a 4080 instead of the 4070. i wont complain haha. guess you can use it as a backup grinder though.

Oh well, I was just getting a replacement espresso machine and they were out of stock so they sent me the combo with the machine and grinder, so it’s like ordering a 4080 and getting a 4080 and some meh ram. I have no need for the ram but not going to complain lol.

This new machine has some issues though, same as the old replacement. I feel like they modified the internals so it’s can’t handle the really long pre-infusions. Ended up doing the slayer mod on it as a result, so I actually have more control now, it’s just more manual.

totally, that's why i suck for taking things for granted haha. it should be a welcoming extra. enjoying the full manual work? find your preferred taste?

I'm still playing with latte art while trying local beans. little too foamy and not a smooth steaming, but my best pour so far.

Yeah it’s fun to have on the fly flow profiling. I have a few really light roasts right now so having the control for that is really nice.

That’s a great looking pour!

Took the 1dx and 70-200 to the camera shop for cleaning and calibration. Seems to have helped. Need to do some more real-world testing but this is the first time I've got anything sharp at 2.8. The shop mentioned there was a few screws loose internally in the lens which could have caused some movement or weird alignment with the glass.

thanks! havnt been doing much coffee. got really sick and didnt bother, i finally got to try out the beans I got when I went to georgia. pretty good :) fox coffee and savannah roastery. I think I like the fox more, but the savannah has a unique taste that isn't generic. still working on dialing it in.

been playing alot of diablo 4 and am being burnt out from it haha. also made a change to my computer, changed out the mb and... it's working great! the asus mb I had was the actual fault. changing the voltage of the rams helped and was good for weeks, then the restarts kept happening again and again and I got fed up. now happy with a gigabyte mb. will take some pictures when I am less addicted to diablo4 hehe.
