Hi All - new here thought I'd better introduce myself.
From Brisbane but currently living in Vienna the last four years (you would be surprised how terrible the coffee skills in cafes are here, grind, tamp pressure, pour time, it's a complete mystery. Forget coffee art, too).
Long time amateur barista, have had a low level DeLonghi grinder and machine for several years, finally thought I better up my game and buy a decent set of kit. (Still deciding on machine, but have bought a Ceado E6P grinder). As a mechanical engineer, it got my tick of approval for the insides.
Proud to say I have taught myself over the years how to do a little bit of coffee art.
My favorite bean is Campos, the superior blend mix. I know some hate this bean, but I really enjoy the syrupy smooth after taste of this bean in the mouth. Problem is they won't post to Vienna, so I have to rely on visiting friends and bringing some back myself.
Drink of choice is a flat white or a cap (no chocolate, no sugar).
