5.0 out of 5 stars compulsory coffee reading, 7 Mar. 2017
The definitive guide to professional Espresso. Scott Rao has been hugely influential in the speciality coffee scene from the start and his research underpins much standard practice. This book lays out best practice for brewing with well referenced arguments. Must read for anyone in the industry.

5.0 out of 5 stars pretty good for the price, 7 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
not lab calibrated so if you have a couple of them they will all read slightly different temperatures (within 0.5C for the 3 I have) but for £1.50 that's pretty good going.

1.0 out of 5 stars Constantly fall out, 7 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As was pointed out by other reviewers, these lenses are about half the thickness of the original lenses, as a consequences they fall out of the frame as soon as you exert a tiny force on it.

The original lenses contribute a fair amount of strength to the overall frame rigidity which is completely lost.

The only way you can make these lenses fit in your glasses with any reliability is to glue them in.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book for beginners and those in the industry, 7 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Coffee Obsession (Hardcover)
fantastic book pitched at just the right level.

gives you basic starter recipes for most brewing methods, lots of handy information on all the basics like where beans come from, processing methods, roasting methods, the importance of cleaning your stuff.

really nice selection of recipes for drinks, some of them a little SB's but also some really nice little subtle gems.

Hario 1-Piece Acrylic Water Dripper, Clear
Hario 1-Piece Acrylic Water Dripper, Clear
Price: £202.24

3.0 out of 5 stars requires constant attention, 13 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Gravity fed dripper means that it requires constant attention and tap adjustment throughout the process.

You probably want about a drip every 2 seconds for 500ml over 18 hours but as the water level drops so does the pressure and it eventually just stops unless you keep opening the tap a little more progressively.

If you don't mind watching your whole 18 hour extraction this is the cold brewer for you!
