I am not a shill, but a fellow coffee traveler that has struggled for years to find how to get those fruity or chocolate flavors to come through consistently in my beans. I’ve finally found the setup that helps me do this.
- Ikawa pro - this is key to get the exact bean to the exact roast you want
- Sweet Maria’s green coffee to source from specific regions/farmers
- Decent Espresso DE1+ Espresso maker - this is key as it allows for pressure/temp/flow profiling unlike that ever seen on another coffee maker.
- A good grinder - I use the Mazzer mini.
This marriage is made in heaven, if you enjoy Ikawa because of the control it gives you, you must also consider the DE1+ to marry to it for the same reason.
Again, I do not work for them or get compensated in any way to say this, I’m just madly in love with these two products working together.
