Adappted: Current kit:
Rancilio Silvia V3, PID'd it myself using a kit from the US
Rancilio Rocky grinder (really want to upgrade it)
Behmor 1600 roaster which produces superb roasts as far as home roaster go
The kit does pretty well aside from the grinder annoying me. The machine is not quite beefy enough to do perfect milk but good enough for now. The PID made all the difference in the world to shot quality.
What I strive for? Coffee of the quality you can get at The Memphis Belle in Wellington. Have never had better.
Nice work installing the PID, I've read that they really lift the Silvia a lot. I've not ever looked at roasting my own beans - where do you source yours?
