Have your say / Re: Timing with Bodum

Sounds good! I use an insulated (double walled) plunger that I pre-warm. I’ll try the second part nonetheless!! Sounds like a very saturated brew!

Unfortunately it isn't Brett.

When the machine went in for a service a descaling wasn't necessary but the tech said it was a bit "sludgy" in the bottom of the tank.

They told us to go to bottled water which is what we have done.

Thanks Bret.  I looked it up and researched the units.  Upper Management (wife) is now complaining about all of the equipment I have.  Nevertheless, I'll eventually get one of these units.  Ij the meantime and talking about "never stop learning", I experimented with a new twist to the Bodum.  Give this a try and please let me know what you think.:::: I have an electric kettle that heats the water precisely for the Bodum (less than 100C).  I pour hot tap water in the Bodum and then apply a T towel around it to preserve heat. I pour in the coffee and then I pour the water in to only 1/4 of the Bodum depth and then stir to soak. I put the plunger just at the top to keep the heat in and time for 4 minutes.  After 4 minutes, I pour in the remaining heated water, put the plunger just at the top and time for another 3.5 - 4 minutes.  I then slowly plunge.  I'm getting a very nice coffee from this but as I'm not a seasoned nor knowledgeable  "taster", I need someone else to perform this and get their findings on the taste.   

Fabulous news Sir! Funny thing this hobby eh… we never stop learning. Now, onto your next assignment:

I have a Bodum maker myself which I purchased for about $60 on special from memory. There usually around 100 soo keep a lookout for specials. That said, it’s not a brilliant unit. Do some web-research and have a look. For the home-roaster it’s a very revealing method.

Would you ship this to the U.S.? Also would you consider selling the espresso machine separately from the grinder? Thanks.
