I managed to escape the roastery this afternoon, to play with jimseven (James Hoffman) at La Spaziale UK’s HQ. The Reason, a chance to play with a new commercial espressos machine which the heads can be set at different temperatures. Not that useful for most settings but as a machine to work on blends I think it has many applications in the coffee roastery.The ability to run side by side shots at different brew temps has obvious advantages when developing a blend, and working out its temperature tolerance.
Although not what I expected and all it could have been, a fantastic tool that I hope I will be taking delivery of one very soon :).
Big thank you to Steve and James for their hospitality.
