^^^ Looks potent !
Picture is kind of abstract but coffee tasted good, anyhow.
(21g Finca El Paraiso, Nicaragua)
Oh yeah, it was!
my eyes are generally too blurry to even see my coffee.
Or: a close facsimile of how I see my Little Eagle grinder (sitting ready & waiting on top of the fridge) at 5:30 of a morning.
Blessed be the Coffeepot
Or: my battered old (and kind of greasy, it seems) pot on a jury-rigged trivet
21g!! I do 25 in my french press. You must have a lot space in your portafilter...do you still pass the nickel test?
Disclaimer: This is the one & only non-m43 image that I'll post on this site.
It was made sometime about when M43 was but a twinkle in an engineer's eye.
I used Fuji 200 colour print film and an MC Rokkor PG 50/1.4 (wide open) on a Minolta XE-1 body.
Yes, I use a big 21g ECM filter in a bottomless portafilter. Don't know if it would fit into my standard portafilter. I only use bottomless now: it is a good exercise to make the espresso deligently, if you don't make it right you will spoil half the kitchen with espresso
I find 7 or 14g is not enough, Arabica beens only have 30% coffeine compared to Robusta, so 21g is a good equivalent to 7g robusta beans

I'm using this thread as the basis of a "project".
The inspiration for this came from a photo I saw in a cafe yesterday. The original used a coffee mug & I thought, why not a glass?
Because of the ugly grease marks left by the beans on the glass, thats why!
Its a work in progress.
Critique is very welcome.
made with an PG Rokkor 50/1.4 set at about f/4 (wide open results were 'orrible). ISO800 because I was too lazy to get the tripod out. Must do better.
Oh, and all this was on the E-M5 using ambient light.
Ivoire and Michael, I like them.
Very nice image, stratokaster. I love the colors and square composition in this one.

I like the composition.
Though you should know that the beans only leave oils on glass like that for two reasons: either they're too old or roasted way too dark. Fresh coffee at good roast level is actually quite dry.
