Don’t worry if it turns out to be a pain in the arse btw. It’d be helpful, but obviously not critical.
Ps, I bloody love this forum!
No worries, will repay some of the bread troubleshooting advice you & others have helped me with.
Made a cold brew in tupperware to experiment. 6 hours in the fridge, occasional agitation, absolutely delicious! None of the bitterness previously complained about, very chocolatey, very pleased I bought the Hario recommended up thread as I see many more of these in my immediate future...
What did you filter through? Just paper coffee filters? I have some of those I was using for the ultrasonic cleaner solutions I could use them for actual coffee :)
Nice one! Conversely I tried the iced pour over method from the James Hoffman video posted up-thread. Not overly swayed by it but will give it another few goes yet.
Any chance the Cunhill Tranquillo uses the same PCB? There'a much clearer picture of a similar looking PCB here with a similar looking resistor to yours.
This one appears to be a 4 band of Red-Red-orange-gold = 22k Ohms
I'm going to have to get the PCB out, unless I can find a dental mirror!
I might need to look again at removing it in more detail tomorrow, this is the best pic I can get in-situ.
Edit - blue top of pic
A challenger appears! I’ve ordered some 22k 3w resistors so I’ll see if they work.
P.s. looking at the wiring logic, is that whole board just controlling the dispense timing which has a pretty big margin of error anyway? Would bypassing this make the dispense button an on/off or would it end in firey death?
I had a quick go at this and it didn’t work, and I didn’t feel confident enough with my knowledge to endure, yet.
I just wanted to be part of it
I want you to be a part of it too, man.
Ordered quite frankly a stupid amount of coffee from Yellow Bourbon 1kg of espresso, 1 Brazil, 1 Peru and a bag of the green beans to give roasting my own a go. I've ordered more in the past, but still
Get in! I did the same (all roasted tho). Been a real treat working through it. They’ve all been banging so far.
Almost certainly to the great disdain of most on this thread, just one of these things. It works great for my taste and no waste/easily cleaned etc...
I read various bits about cold filter being a bit weak/tasteless, very happily surprised with the amount of flavour and the difference in flavour - much more chocolatey and smooth. Just put some more in for a longer cold brew, looking forward to how it tastes after 15 hours in the fridge!
Cold brew being weak is nonsense, at least in terms of caffeine. Its fucking rocket fuel!
Cheers. I just ordered a Hario Cold Brew Jug from Pact to give it a go.
If you listen to Hoffman's take he says normal brewing extracts more of the flavours so with cold brew you tend to get a much milder coffee with the top end stuff taken out. But because of the brew time you extract more caffeine. So, it's a milder flavour but higher caffeine.
Also big win for the lazy amongst us. No need to fill/boil the kettle...
That's what I guessed too
Bought an Orman portafilter pressure gauge as I continue down the upgrade path, and having done the tweak to the OPV on my Gaggia Classic about 5 years ago that was supposed to bring it down to 9-10 bar from 14 bar out the factory, I found it was still actually at 12 bar.
