Fruity coffee

I recently visited a coffee plantation and bought a bag there. They sold their bags there with labels on how the bean was processed. This “Natural” processed coffee is incredible. It’s fruity. It doesn’t have that like signature “burnt” flavor coffee has. It almost...

Different espresso recipe?

I work at a cafe where they are using a dark roast blend and they are pulling 32g from a 18g dose for espresso. Strangely however, they pull it in 6 seconds instead of the usual 20s-30s. I’m not sure why they don’t use the standard recipe and am too afraid to ask...

Which to buy first?

Hi there, mostly a lurker until now. I'm trying to incentivize myself towards some goals and decided that rewarding myself with a better coffee set up upon reaching those goals would be great.

I plan to get myself one nice thing when I reach my intermediate goal and a second nice thing at the final goal.

The two nice things I am considering getting for myself are a proper burr grinder and a 9Barista, or perhaps, to save a few hundred, the d'longhi espresso machine everyone seems to rec as the budget option. (Also interested in ppl's thoughts between these two brewing options.)

I love espresso but it seems like there would be something to be said for buying the grinder first since espresso requires such a fine grind. On the other hand, grocery stores have grinders and I already have one of the blender style ones. I currently drink moka pot coffee on the daily, or I have a cheap pour over I never really use.
