For a while all has been quiet on the Uber front. Â We shuffled some stuff around at the roastery, and as part of it we chose not to cut the old Uber into the new worktops as we planned to upgrade – the new Uber having a different (smaller) cutout.
The new Uber arrived today and I am very excited. Â This probably could have been a post for the Square Mile Blog, but there are many more exciting/important things to post on there!
What’s different about this Uber? Â The capacity is bigger. Â We sometimes used the old one for cupping, but it had more of a cafe use/quick recovery capacity so couldn’t do many bowls. Â This one has a 6 litre boiler – very exciting! Â This one has a flow control dial, instead of an button control. Â It also has some beta software for us to test out.
I missed the Uber when it was gone. Â My brewed coffee consumption dropped (a bad thing). Â My experimentation also dropped off a little (also a bad thing). Â I hope to get that going again. Â I also grew irrationally annoyed with kettles (a weird thing?).
Before anyone accuses me of spam (perhaps fairly) I should make clear that we don’t make any money from the sale of Uber boilers, though yes – they are now available for sale. Â It is just a project that we’re really excited about and it has been, and will be, a great tool for exploring coffee. Â We’re extremely grateful to Marco – they are splendid!
