Pro Scale XC2000 Small Precision Scale
Many of our customers love manual brewing equipment because of the freedom it provides. With the lack of dependency on anything other than coffee and hot water, the coffee lover is able to take their coffee gear wherever they go. We've been on the lookout for a small scale with a precision weight variance that can be a part of this setup. With the Pro Scale XC2000 we believe we've found the perfect scale for weighing coffee doses on the go. The XC2000 does have an auto-shutoff set for 30 seconds of inactivity that cannot be disabled, but the .1 gram variance is perfect for precise coffee measurement.* The minimal weigh variance makes it a perfect companion to the Mypressi Twist or for those who want maximum accuracy in their brewing doses.

*In our preliminary testing, even at a slow pour rate, the scale did not turn off on its own; only after 30 seconds of inactivity. If you were to purchase this for brewing onto, we would recommend tapping the brewer or scale during the pre-infusion to ensure it doesn't shut-off.

Few advancements in espresso machine technology over the past fifty years could be called revolutionary. The latest advancement featured in La Marzocco's Strada Electronic Paddle (EP) is one that has earned that title. Pressure profiling was first introduced into the mass market in 2009 by the Slayer Espresso Machine. The La Marzocco Strada takes this new technology to the next level by allowing the barista to save up to four pressure profiles at any given time. Along with the ability to save profiles, each group has a digital display that shows the temperature (±0.1°C), shot time, and current bars of pressure (±.1 Bar). The Strada perfectly combines the durability and workmanship of La Marzocco with the technology of the future.
$1,687.00(For a guest barista review, click here.) Anfim's Super Caimano espresso grinder, upon its initial release, was a solid addition to any high-end coffee house. It featured a 75mm flat burr set that helped to give a very consistent grind, allowing baristas to rely upon it for excellent shot-to-shot uniformity. When dialing in a coffee, the Super Caimano had 70 holes in its adjustment collar to allow for tinkering between shots. Now, however, Anfim has added an additional 20 spots for a total of 90 holes in the adjustment collar. The benefit of this? When dialing in and finding the sweet spot for any coffee being used to pull shots of espresso, a key factor the barista must take into consideration is the size of the grind particles. Yes, uniformity and consistency of those grind particles is also key, but the ability to make tiny, incremental adjustments is always helpful when striving to find the right balance of all a coffee's characteristics when pulled as espresso.
