I like using the Rocky to make Turkish coffee when someone reminds me to make it. I shell the cardamon seperate and mix in. Sometimes, if the grinder is low on beans, I'll grind cadamon with the beans which is the proper way.

Wow!
I am a believer now.
What a difference in the grind.
Came set to 8.
Didn't search zero.
Didn't have time as needed to run to a conference call and was dying to try some fresh ground espresso.
Simply dialed to 7 to see what would happen and love the grind at that setting.
Finally got lots of creme and a taste in the coffee only found in Miami cafes.
Man I am in love.
Now I know what you guys have all been raving about.
Wow!

Here is my new toy next to his lover:

Good. Now you are rocking! Looks like the machine and grinder have been updated since I bought mine.

The grinder settings are particular to each grinder. Your "8" setting is more like my "-5" setting to make espresso.

Looks great.

I notice the steam wand on the right and seem to always remember it being on the left, unless I am nuts.

You guys would know better than I would about the Silvia.

Mine is on the left and the Gaggia before was too.

No big deal, I was just curious.

Carry on, espresso warriors.

FAKE!!!

Remember, there are many versions.
I have V3.

My heart is racing.
I have had so much espresso today.

Can't believe how fine this grinds.
Compared it to the ones that were fresh ground for me at Kana and no comparison.
I can see why the creme now.

I am so screwed.
Now looking at a nifty bean vac container for my beans.
$39 but looks well worth it.

The next hobby idea I get the answer will be "NO MAS".

If you keep consuming at this continued high rate, you will have no need for a toy to keep your beans fresh, Carlos.

Then again, she has been ready for that for years.

Wow do I get it now.

Learned how to alter my brew time and coffee consistency (richness/strength) by way of changing grind setting.

Played around with all ranges from 7 to 12.
Found that for our taste, with these particular beans, 8 is the way to go.

New tamper should arrive today.
I am all espresso'd out for the day as am typing at twice the speed I normally would.

Please go away.

I have been looking at them.
There is no end in sight.

I haven't even gotten my new tamper and have been looking at a few European ones that either have a spring or the one that clicks.

This is yet another sickness.

Cannister is cheap and I use pen style meat thermometer which is like $5 and works fine.

stopped in Crate and Barrel yesterday and saw a nice frothing pitcher with the clip on thermometer for 15 bucks and almost bit.

Personally, I see no use for the thermometer though as once it's steamed and frothed, I stop and do my thing. It's plenty hot.
