My year in coffee - Jan 28

Wonderfulness in the  mail today.  I got a Hario Skerton grinder.  

I used to think my grinder did a pretty good job.  Now I know better.  The fine grind was so nice, smooth and even.  I've never had an espresso grind that nice.  The only problems were learning how to adjust it for the aeropress and pour over brewers.  I left it set on the size needed for my morning pour over.  One other problem which had nothing to do with this grinder and everything to do with the one I was using.  I tamped it too hard for my machine!  I used to have to tamp very hard to get a good shot.  Now I don't.  That's going to take some getting used to.

I did get a couple of shots and made a cappuccino.


I used some Ethiopian Sidame.  At least that's what it smelled like. I  forgot to label the jar after I roasted it so I was a little confused.
