Thanks to the efforts of one very enthusiastic and talented coffee guy, we have the opportunity to bring you the device of the year.
Mr. Greg Scace, The inventor of the Espresso Machine Thermofilter Temperature Device and Espressoparts.com are proud to join in an effort to get this highly acclaimed tool into the hands of espresso machines techs, engineers and coffeegeeks everywhere.
Aficionados know the importance of temperature when it comes to brewing espresso. The temperature of the brewing water must be kept within narrowly defined parameters in order to obtain the best taste. If one properly prepares the coffee and brews under the correct temperature and pressure conditions, then the customer experiences coffee nirvana. But if the brewing temperature is different from that required by a specific coffee and degree of roast, then sour or bitter tastes spoil the experience.
The brewing temperature must be the same time after time in order to produce consistent results. Unfortunately, the brew temperature produced by many espresso machines varies with frequency of brewing (duty cycle), making it difficult to produce top-notch drinks. Expert barista understand the shortcomings of their machinery, and compensate for them.
A person seeking to produce the highest quality coffee may have many temperature related questions such as these:
The Thermofilter enables accurate and systematic machine comparisons. Systematic test protocols, such as those adopted by the World Barista Championships (WBC) enable performance comparisons of equipment from various manufacturers. The results of these comparisons may be used as a basis for equipment selection. Within product lines, data obtained by systematic test methods employing Thermofilters provide a sound statistical basis for evaluating machine changes, enhancing the ability of engineers to improve espresso machine performance.
The Holy grail of temperature devices? Well let's just say, that this is the start of something big. How Big? Nobody knows for sure, however new machines coming to market are being evaluated with this device and the current World Barista Championship (WBC) and United States Barista Competition (USBC) technical standards teams all use this device to test and evaluate the machines used in competitions.
If you do not have one, you will want one. As soon as you get one, you'll wonder how you set up machines without it. Let's start an espresso revolution. Viva Barista!
If you are interested in the technical aspects of this device or simply want to know what it is all about, please participate in an ongoing forum discussion @Home-barista.com
The device plugs into a digital thermometer, but this is not included in the price.The device will work with any digital thermometer capable of reading a type T thermocouple, however the best available Digital thermometers are built by Fluke and you can reference and purchase the different models available under the heading "Digital" here
