Our Synesso has arrived!!!!

Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls of all ages, may I present to you…….the SYNESSO!

Our Synesso finally arrived a few days ago. Jason from www.revolutionespresso.com (local Synesso distributor) set it up and we all took turns pulling shots and playing around with the pre-infusion. We also got naked portafilters for it, so we can make sure our tamping is spot on. I pulled some shots of our ‘spro with the triple baskets, and wow, very happy.

All we’re waiting for now is our new grinder. It’s supposed to be arriving this week. We’re getting a Compak grinder. I believe it’s the K-10 Conic model. We’re really excited about this because it will free up our Mazzer to be used for SO shots and in tweaking new espresso blends we’re playing with.

All in all, very exciting stuff for us. Lot’s of good changes going on. Also, I think the plans are in the works for a anniversary/jam to take place in mid to late October. I love community building events, and to be able hang out and get geeked out on espresso……well sign me up. Anyway, here’s a few more pics of the Synesso. BTW, if your in the Bay View area, stop by and introduce yourself. I always enjoy meeting new coffee folk.
