There are two main factors here: As captured in comments, a handheld stick blender just isn't powerful enough. It has nowhere near the same power as the sort of larger commercial blender used by big chains like Starbucks. Not only that, but it can't create the same sort of turbulence as an enclosed blender, because you're immersing it into an open ...

Domestic coffee roasters are usually 'fluid-bed', barrel or 'stirrer' type. Popcorn poppers and most low-end purpose built roasters are fluid-bed. That is you agitate the beans by pumping hot air to roast the beans. Barrel types have a rotating barrel with fins inside to agitate the beans. Stirrer types have a pot and arms inside that are turned to stir ...

I recently cleaned my machine with the spring. I cleaned out the deposits from my hard water from the hot water compartment (an outside job to be sure. ) I ran CleanRite through it. I got Bunn filters. I then made 10 cups of Peets. I had grounds ALLL OVER THE PLACE. While i agree that only Bunn has tall filters, they must be dense as my coffee ...

You can tell when someone knows what he is doing is wrong when he says he poaches the first cup, and doesn't want to make it obvious to everyone else. In my experience the first part of the brew is the strongest, and if you take it the rest is noticeably inferior. It doesn't even have a pleasant smell or flavor anymore.

As much as your question in its current form might be off-topic, I like this grinder so much as to answer the question anyway. :) Hopefully not too much shame on me...? Hario is a brand with many good manual and ceramic burr grinders. I like this one. You say effort is okay, but it will take a lot of effort to get beans down to Turkish-level powder. That ...

I solved the problem by removing the outer "Panarello" wand and using the inner steam wand to stretch my milk, it gives you much more control and with a little practice it works a treat and produces nice glossy stretched milk perfect for latte art.
