Hey - does anyone have a POV regarding manual vs electric grinders? How much should I spend on a grinder if I want to get close to coffee shop level coffee? I don’t mind going manual if it means that I am savings a significant sum. I dont drink a lot of coffee but I do like it to be a high quality. Thanks! 1 post - 1 participant Read full topic ..read more

Hi there, I am setting up a business in Lombok Indonesia and need some help as I have zero coffee/barista experience. We are opening a food take away shop and we have a big terrace area where we want to build a bar to serve coffee from. We are forecasting to sell about 20 coffees a day max. The thing is, we don’t have running water where the bar is going to be. Can anyone advise on how to set this up, what’s required and what kind of machine would you advise us to get? I see a lot of mobile coffee operations so I know it’s possible, just don’t know where to start. Thank you very much! 1 post ..read more

TDS factors for concentrates

Hello, I just finished the water course on BH and I started to prepare myself some concentrates (1L bottles 1000 ppm). Where do you guys keep the bottles with the concentrates? In the fridge or can they also stay inside a closet? The plan is to open them every week when I buy a 5L bottle of distilled water and make my water for filter extractions. How stable would the concentrates be? I have an Apera TDS20 meter and I plan to take some measurements but since I don’t really trust the temperature compensation of the device it’s a bit hard to be consistent (pretty hot these days in Vienna). I’d l ..read more

Breville Barista Express -- portafilter feels loose

When I rotate the portafilter onto the machine, it feels loose. I’m not sure if it affects the pressure. Anyway, is there a way to fix that? I tried replacing the flexible gasket in the machine, and it had no affect. I think maybe either the portafilter or the opening in the machine has worn out over time? 1 post - 1 participant Read full topic ..read more

.6mm restrictors vs .8mm restrictors
Barista Hustle Community

Hi Does anyone know what restrictors do to coffee taste given the same input grind and dose? Is there a benefit, taste wise, to one or the other? I have changed out mine .6 to .8 on my Linea PB due to inconsistent flow from scale build up. Not entirely happy with the taste difference but it would be great to get some other people’s thoughts 1 post - 1 participant Read full topic ..read more

EK43 malfunction

Hey all, Our shop has an EK43 grinder that hit a snag. We replaced the burrs about days ago until just before close yesterday the EK wouldn’t turn on and engage the motor at all. The ON switch remains in place if it’s connected to power and reverts back to neutral if unplugged. I’ve tried the release button above the ON/OFF switch but no luck. Left it unplugged and resting overnight incase it was a thermal overload but still nothing the morning. Any ideas? Circuit breaker seems a cheap enough part but no point replacing it there’s something else tripping it? Any and all help welcome! 1 post ..read more
