Grinders / Re: The Wootz 7. A new Sth Korean grinder.

Joe from Socratic has one in the workshop and it sounds like it’s his current favourite grinder. Probably a good person to touch base with if anyone is really keen.

This looks great! Shame about the 3phase option for the home-nut-bag insistent on owning equipment capable of running several cafes only to produce a sum total of two coffees/day. Ie: ME

I completely respect Korean products
And the coffee culture is highly refined from what I have seen

Since I’m helping your wife to de clutter

You have my email to send me details

Grinders / The Wootz 7. A new Sth Korean grinder.
« Last post by Lwowiak on Today at 01:15 PM »
I came across this new grinder, and it peaked my interest:


https://dailycoffeenews.com/2019/04/18/from-south-korea-the-wootz-7-grinder-makes-powerful-us-debut/


It is 220volts, and probably 60Hz (usual frequency in Sth Korea), while Australia is 50Hz. As more information comes to light, I will pursue it further as it seems to tick quite a few of my boxes. Price at $2000 USD isn't too bad when comparing to other grinders.
If it is 50/60Hz, then it becomes even more attractive. As more reviews are posted, I hope more information will come to light.

UPDATE.

Hi Everyone,
I just wanted to provide an update on the Co-op. It is still going strong, and quite a few people have sourced beans from me. I have some exciting new developments coming up in the next 2-3 months and will provide more details once everything is fully organised. I have had many discussions on how to involve more people and also to allow them to provide input. This poses challenges as everyone has different tastes and expectations. More to come....
Price is always an issue, and usually the better the bean, the higher the price. There are exceptions, and I have sampled and tested some wonderful offerings. We purchased a small quantity to evaluate the beans and the suppliers, and were very happy with the results. No spare green beans from this purchase, as I insisted on payment upfront. The beans were excellent value, so we will have more in the future. Cupping scores are highly contentious, and everyone has their opinion. I find that if your preference is pour-over etc, then high scoring coffees are great, and some people are happy to pay the premium. When it comes to espresso, there are many factors to consider, with the experience of the roaster being paramount. In the future our offerings will be varied to include beans at the low end of the price spectrum. More later.

In the meantime, she who must always be obeyed has decreed that my pile of beans is too large and taking up too much room. We have recemtly moved into smaller, but newer premises, with storage space at a premium. I am therefore happy to move some of my beans at a reduced price. If anyone is interested, please contact me  and I am willing to work something out, depending on the volume. It comes out of my pocket, as there is no profit in this co-op, but domestic harmony is paramount. The alternative was to reduce the wine collection.

So, if you want some Central and South American beans, get in touch. I may be compelled to let some African and Indo beans go as well......

well i finally finished customising the la marzocco gs3.
Moved away from timber and had some custom billet aluminium pieces made for it.

The coffee machinist machined the side panels and were anodised in electric blue, and specht design made the new group cap, but i didnt like the look of the flat standard ones, so had it made to look like the strada AV group caps.

Portafilter handles are from pesado.

The only other thing i would like to do is change the feet to some taller S/S ones

This one will now be a keeper, as cant see myself wanting or ever needing to upgrade for a long while










Wow great looking machine and nice custom modifications!

If you want the best possible coffee from a French press I suggest you watch the video tutorial by James Hoffmann on YouTube-

Basically you want to minimise agitation to avoid over extraction so don’t use the plunger at all. Results in a far superior brew to any other method I’ve tried in a plunger.
