  • Ask Gail: Lavazza's Packaging Change?

    Lavazza's packagingJust as soon as you get used to something, it changes. Believe you me when I say, I get it! It can be frustrating, especially when you really loved what was changed.

    Well I have some good news for you. It's what is on the inside that counts! In case you don't know what I am talking about, Lavazza updated some of their packaging a little bit ago. And to be honest, I rather like the change, it looks more fresh! But what does Lavazza's packaging change really mean?

    But like I said, it is what is on the inside that counts :) And even though Lavazza's packaging is new and improved they didn't change the coffee. So when you order your new bag of coffee, you won't be able to taste a difference (because there isn't any!)

    Gail can assure you this. Watch the video below to see what Gail's speculation is as to why the change happened! Then head over to our YouTube channel to see what else Gail has been up too!

     

  • Compare: Double Boiler Espresso Shots - Izzo, La Spaziale & Breville

    For folks that dig precision, a dual boiler espresso machine with PID temperature control of the brew boiler is hard to beat. While we tend to shoot from the hip in general around here, that doesn't mean we can't appreciate a shot pulled from one of these beauties!

    We asked Gail to pull shots from the Izzo Alex Duetto II, La Spaziale Mini Vivaldi and Breville Dual Boiler so that we could see how they compare. No science at work here, friends (hey, old habits die hard!), but we did use the same grinder for each machine (the Nuova Simonelli MCI), coffee (Lavazza Super Crema) and brew temp (199F) to try to nail down a few of the variables.

    Watch as we taste and discuss the shots from each of these machines, then rank them in terms of our favorites, flavor-wise.

  • Which Brew Temperature is Best for Lavazza Super Crema?

    We took one of our most popular coffees, Lavazza Super Crema, and brewed it using different temperatures on theLa Spaziale Mini Vivaldi. While the 204F degree espresso extraction temperature is a general rule of thumb, a lot of single origin/estate beans and even some blends are particularly sensitive to heat and will perform better at a different temperature.

    Watch as Gail brews several shots at different temperatures, tasting each to determine the ideal brew temp for Super Crema.
