Another guy in my building. He's a mechanical engineer.


He actually sells a device that monitors the water temperature at the basket. It's like $300 plus the temperature readout, kind of for pros only.

Best espresso for me in NYC over  the last year has been at Box Kite. After that, Everyman on W Broadway, Abraco and Little Collins in mid town.

Hi Collar for aeropress or pourover but results vary by how old the beans are and barista 

Places will try on next trip, Voyager and Cafe Integral 

This is interesting. I went to Abraco for the first time last year and thought it was downright awful.

I agree that Hi Collar is worth a trip.

Have had "downright awful" at all the places I mentioned but have had really good shots over the last year at all these shops.

 

Anyplace not mentioned is just "downright awful"

Interesting. I will have to try it again. When I was there they were pulling shots with beans that were the tannest I have ever seen. it was like vinegar.

abraço has been getting more sour and acidic every time I revisit.
just went to culture espresso in midtown. good espresso and environment. heart roaster is somewhere in between the super bright third wave stuff and Italian style beans (sweet and just a bit of acidity)

I love Heart; their Ethiopia Worka is fantastic and I'm drinking their Guatemala right now.

Any tips/recommendations for London?

Workshop is my favorite and I like TAP as well. I find the general quality of coffee here to be pretty good. Not a fan of Monmouth or Nude.

Guatemalan beans are just a no go for me. So medicinal and bitter. Have now had it at Budin, Parlor, Boxkite, and ughhh terrible as straight espresso
post #3958 of 4116

Guatemalan is my go to for brewed coffee but haven't made espresso with it. Haven't had a bad one

I agree with Kevin Knox on Heart coffee: "More like Heart-burn."

How long ago did he say this?  Have heard that but was told they have changed their roasting and it is much better than before, compared to a year ago. Going to try them regardless.
