Hi, New to the super automatic expresso machines club.
We just purchased a gaggia-accademia-espresso-machine and should be delivered soon.
My wife and I are mostly cafe crema drinkers and are eager to try this machine.
We are upgrading from a Tassimo Disk machine and were used to Italian cafe cremas Tassimo offered. We were brewing 8 fl oz. cremas.
Could someone be kind enough and recommend a good working setting to make a good crema? We are aiming close to 8 fl oz. drinks.
I'll experimenting with Lavazza Super Crema Whole Bean Espresso
- Thanks in Advance -
P.S. I love this community BTW :)
Thank you for the question. I happen to have the same machine at home. I actually do not monkey with the grinder setting for a cafe crema. I do choose the 3 bean strength. The next thing to play with is the e-plus system. I perfer to set my e-plus to full open, so it is least restrictive and I pick up very few bitter notes doing it that way. I would start full open then close the e-plus valve to slow the flow to find the flavor you want.05-12-14 09:44AM
First let me tell you this machine is amazing! I can't believe I was missing out for so long. I haven't had a good cup coffee at home in a long time until I got this machine. I just came back from Jamaica and could not wait to get my home made coffee :)
Even though I love Jamaican coffee, the expresso machine over there could not get even close to the Accademia :)
I found the perfect balanace for my cafe crema and even expressos:
This seems to work great with Lavazza Super Crema, a local Colombian coffee and local Colombian decaf grinded coffee.
I just can hope this machine can last me long time because I really love it. I already saved $20 in just a couple of weeks. I used to have a single cup coffee machine "Tassimo" while it was great I saw myself buying coffee disks ever week $10 each time.
