This is a catchy slogan - one which i hoped would be the way to a working website and payment receipt means. It is not simply the logistics that is more difficult in Africa because places are more remote, it is systems that don't exist or additional systems that has been instituted to ensure that another party gets rewarded and so the potential gains from any one transaction keeps on shrinking. See supply and demand may be the fundamental rule but the thickening plots when mo
Finally i am able to make full use of the #Sonofresco, including the ADR function which came at a premium price. Can honestly say it was worth it! Still a bit here and there to get a hold of i.t.o adjusting the profile to what you want within the limitations of what the machine can and cannot do. The accuracy and detail is truly amazing. Tasting the roast - well balanced, little to no acidity and bitterness with subtle hints of fruit and nut! All of this is in line with the
I just discovered that my laptop is old and the Bluetooth version it operates on can no longer be connected to my phone. That to me signals one thing - its time to replace it. So running the ADR software and connecting the laptop via Bluetooth to the #Sonofresco is not going to happen and it will have to wait. Also being dependent on suppliers for a number of things for which the designs and plans have not been completed is a frustration. Learning that the online shop payme
The #Sonofresco made me think that the smooth humming sound of a happy machine belonged to a Rolls-Royce. So the #IKAWA pro V2 sample roaster made me think that the it was a Landrover, i cannot help getting the feeling that it is going to stop working any minute - the machine certainly doesn't sound like a purring cat. But when considering the bells and whistles, everything is there! the roasting profile and the feeling of control over what is happening to the #coffee beans
Much like red wine, the freshly roasted beans need to be allowed the opportunity to develop a decent flavour in the proper environment. This environment allows it to exhale CO2 without taking on oxygen. Placing it in an airtight container to early in the process will stem the development of the flavour. The #Sonofresco operating manual calls for a typical resting period of 48 hours - this tastes about right. Will see what a little more time does later on.
Try all i want, i could not succeed in connecting the roaster to the #gas without having a #leak somewhere in the system, pretty easy to find the leak but all the normal attempts to eliminate it flopped. (For safety sake it remains absolutely essential that the system be tested leak free prior to switching on the gas!) Consequently the commissioning of the #sonofresco could not be completed. Regulation calls for a number of the actions such as installing the gas safety gaug
In most instances international shopping will be equated to #online shopping. Buying big or expensive items online can be interesting. Recently bought a roaster from the USA. Including for door to door air freight all the way across the ocean. payment was made on 17/05, the roaster arrived on 20/06 go figure! So chuffed with the new arrival, i quickly scan through the items in the box and don't see the memory stick. Email back and forth with the seller, only to end up wi
