Re: CDGT thoughts

Thanks for your feedback. We would like to point out that what you are referring to as the 'thermal' lid is really a travel lid that only needs to be used when moving a carafe from one location to another. You can really put it away until needed. The Brew Thru Lid should remain in place during and a...

Brazen Spout Replacement Kit

If you were an early adopter to Brazen brewers you may have a carafe that dribbles when you pour coffee. Joe Behm, head of the company, is offering to send a Spout Replacement Kit to resolve this problem. If you read the instructions and/or watch the video than you will find the replacement pretty e...

Re: Grind setings

Hi John, Look for a grind that is comprised of small granules, about the size of sugar granules in the product 'Sugar in the Raw'. This will allow a proper flow of water through the coffee bed. I cannot tell you exactly which setting on your grinder to use as they can vary from one to the other, how...

Re: General questions

What is the benefit of the "brew-thru" lid? The BTL closes most of the opening of the thermal carafe during brewing so little or no heat escapes. There is a small opening in it into which coffee directly brews. The BTL is to be left in the thermal carafe, which can then be parked back in the base. ...

Re: Hario V60 Range Server 600ml

The range servers do not have any heat retention properties other than the tight fitting glass lid on the 600ml model. They are simply glass carafes and you should expect to pour and consume the coffee right after brewing. The coffee would be hot right after brewing but it will cool. Preheating the ...

Re: Green beans

Green beans generally will last one year, longer if packaged and stored properly, but the reverse is also true. Much of the coffee at our warehouse either arrives in Grainpro packaging or is moved to it. We re-package coffee upon arrival at our warehouse into smaller packs, particularly if it arrive...

Re: Removing stains from thermal carafe

Try a solution of baking soda (the one in the box) and very hot water. Just let it sit overnight. Since just about everyone has a box of baking soda in their fridge it's worth a try and works much of the time. Glad you are enjoying the brewer.

Re: Green bean recommendation for light roast espresso

Gregr, without knowing which exact coffees you have it is hard to be specific. The Ethiopia stands out and probably would be interesting. The El Salvador is likely either a Bourbon or Pacamara, both good candidates. Start experimenting but you are on the right track with keeping the coffees lighter....

Re: Bolivia Fair Trade/Organic - experiences and blending?

Java_Rob, if your voltage is low then you will have extended roast times regardless of bean being roasted. This is an issue with any electric roaster as the heating elements output less then what they should. You will get baked, flatter tasting coffee as you have already noted. Firstly, I would sugg...
