Hi everyone. Love a good coffee but am new to knowing what exactly goes into the making of one. I have read a lot and experimented a little in recent times. I've been roasting my own beans for a short time, progressing from a popper to a heat gun and a pot (dog bowl type method). This will then progress to a coretto type set up but without the bread maker. A story for another time.

I don't have any fancy machines, but make a coffee that I enjoy with a stovetop Mokka, sometimes French press,sometimes pour over with the latter being a rare occasion.

My main interest lies in the blending of coffee beans to create something that hits my preferred taste on the head for each individual brew method.

I am Australian but live in Northern Germany. I look forward to learning from you all and participating when I can.

Cheers

KK

Yes KK, I read that thread and have spent a deal of time thereafter youtubing. It has piqued my interest. I have a Turkish friend who lives around the corner who I'd like to surprise with a traditional coffee when he next comes over. The Cezves are easy to come by here and aren't expensive. My biggest hurdle in the process will be the grinding. I have a hand grinder but the thought of setting that to fine and grinding enough for two Turkish coffees fills me with dread, although I haven't tried yet, it may not be that bad.. I have a question on grinders which I'll post over in that part of the forum after this.
Anyway thanks for the welcome.

The grind should be like flour or talcum powere
At first I suggest purchasing a jar or a local Turkish deli to grind some Turkish coffee then if you like it go for a grinder
Turkish delicatessens will have hand grinders

Thanks for the tips KK, much appreciated.

Operation 'Türk Kahve' is well underway. 😉

Just have to duck down and pick the set of Cezve up and I should be good to go.

Got some good ratio tips as opposed to the 'one teaspoon' measurement I've seen described.
I'll play around with it and see how I go. I anticipate I'll enjoy it.

Welcome; this is the place to tell us a little about yourself... and even if you're not new, it would be great to have a bit of an update [especially for some of those recently migrated members]!

I am new . My name is Vince. I have a problem with XP 7240 machine. The grinder unable to grind the coffee beans. I believe the inside of the grinder is stuck. I managed to dismantle my machine and took out the grinder. I tried to open up the bottom but screw would not moved at all. Can anyone advis
ed?

Hey all... Was it time for a sea change? Well I took it to risk taking coffee to the next step and into what I expect my final run into retirement.... Not anything has taken my liking.

We have set up a small roasting company in the hills of Perth called The Jarrahdale Coffee Roasting Company. We are in the researching how and what direction we want to head in, either single origin beans or blended. The science is exciting me and the vast cupping techniques.

We are not that long into finilising our business plan and we are off. Kind of scary but so exciting at the same time. It has been strange seeing all what it takes to create a business and how to develop the business direction, without knowing what direction to take.

Not bad from an ex-copper eating doughnuts and coffee to roasting green beans. 16 years to retirement, hopefully I will gain enough knowledge to build a really great and exclusive business to eventually pass on the baton onto my 9 year old son. We all have to dream!!

I will take on any advice and thanks in advanced of everything you pass onto us.

Barry and  Dave

well done Barry and Dave !

who's you're target market and how does your business strategy / roast profile aggressively target them? and what's your point of difference or leading edge in the market place ?

you're not obliged to answer any of these questions of course, it's all just food for thought!

best of luck and feel free to ask away if we can be of any assistance in your venture - many of us have been working in the industry a very long time

plus I think being an ex copper will stand you in good stead when it comes to customers who are late with paeny or who diss your product!

best,

Pat

Hello! My name is Mickey, I'm a New Englander living in MI for the time being with my beautiful wife! I have many interesting hobbies including miniatures and shaving my head with old fashioned gear. Some of the not-so-unique hobbies would be coffee and tea. I enjoy collecting them, and collecting brewing methods, in addition to experimenting with different ways to brew (IE put an egg white in the grounds while you brew.) I also enjoy all types of history and I'm into spirituality and religion. That's about all there is to me, I look forward to participating in this forum!

Hey folks, somehow found a pathway back here. Not sure how I got lost, but it came to mind to drop in and say g'day. Still loving good coffee, still roast my own with the same Hottop I grabbed off AM way back in they day. Running Bezzera Galatea and Mazzer Major, and now adding my own coffee into a home brewed stout...just delicious.
