Arrarex Caravel ( tips and techniques )
« Reply #25 on: 27/10/2013, 01:28 AM »
I get the best results from mine by filling the basket to the top once tamped,and grinding fine enough the I really have to apply ALOT of pressure on the lever to get a fast drip from the group handle, I load the handle then pull down until I get a few drips coming out then I slowly lift to refill the chamber and push down to finish the shot, with the grind fine enough that I really have to push down hard gives me a sweet thick bodied shot with lots of crema,
If I grind a bit coarser so as I don't need to apply so much pressure , I find the shots are a bit thin and lacking the sweetness, but that's just me.

I am back in the routine of pulling daily shots on a Caravel, our first stop in our 'gap year' is the summer at a mates bach in Piha, on the west coast of Auckland.
I sold him a Caravel & Lido grinder a couple of years ago and now i get to use it on a daily basis! I brought a bag of my beans with me, will have to source some
good local ones soon. The Caravels really do pull a sublime shot.
