In terms of the day to day, specifically speaking. I’m trying to figure out if we’re having inconsistencies with our blend stemming from the roaster we are working with or if something like this is very normal with beans in general.
At our first and very new shop, we use one blend for our espresso (and all espresso based drinks), always. It helps us at our early stages, training and find consistency especially with new employees.
How different should dialing in every morning be compared to the previous day in terms of recipe? I listen to the Cat & Cloud guys and they’ve said that recipes shouldn’t change very much from day to day especially if you guys have a house blend that you always use. I agree. There should only be little tweaks here and there to account for certain variables.
But random days, I’ll hear from our staff that maybe they had to spend an extra 30 minutes trying to dial in or change the Peak’s grind setting drastically from say ±4.0 down to 2 after being consistent for the last week.
We communicate often with our roaster to make sure we’re up to date as possible to maintain quality control. But I’d love to hear some of your guys’ experiences and please share some wisdom.
I still consider myself a new student to coffee and always learning. Please share any insight. Thanks guys!
