dfk41 Nothing wrong with that, but unless you have a Super tasters taste buds, then where is the gain.
But Dfk you can speak from your experience. If I remember correctly you had lots of grinders and coffee machines, so you know what works for you.
The problem is, coffee is one of those things that you’ll never know until you try it - hence most of us here upgrade and spend a considerable amount of cash for those amazing 45ml of black liquid. Besides, taste is subjective as you say it, and, even if I had amazing tastebuds, I would not be able to tell if I like product X or Y until I try it myself.
If we all had the mentality of the drink or sink it categories, or driving a Porsche doesn’t make you a racing driver, we all would be happy as Larry with our Gaggia Classics and Eureka Mignons.
Who knows, maybe one day I’ll drive a Porsche and find out the hidden talent in me. 🤣😊👍
