Get a Life – Have an Espresso
Surfing the net…..not quite silver surfing, but getting there, is a daily event now that Guru has started blogging for Aromo
And I never cease to be amazed at the amount of rubbish out there… For example, one forum I had the misfortune to stumble across, had 14 folk debating the relative merits of hand vs electric grinders
For small scale at home consumption the conclusion was of course that hand grinding was by far and away :
1) The cheapest
2) The simplest
3) The quietest
4) The freshest
5) The most flexible method for preparing beans
Key to the debate was the cost and of course the fact that all electric grinders even the best burr grinders heat the beans and therefore degrade the finished liquor…(Whether simply cutting or crushing and truning in motion)
You can take a horse to water but you cannot make it drink! Have these guys never heard of an ESE pod….?
Are they perhaps in solitary confinement at her Majesty’s pleasure?? This would indeed explain why they are concerned about and have the time to debate grinding methods in a such minute detail…
Get a life… and enjoy perfetto easy serving espresso as part of a healthy diet which includes getting out more!
