Guys, need to buy some green 100% Arabica beans to try my hand at roasting them at home. Any suggestions? Online store/Shop in Delhi/any shop (or plantation) that can courier after a bank transfer all welcome.

I need only a kilo or two right now.

Roast profiles and tips also welcome. First time roaster here.

Thanks.

Anyone here used relatively low cost (below Rs.7000/-) pump driven expresso makers like the one from prestige pecmd 2.0 (listed in amazon : http://www.amazon.in/Prestige-PECMD-...inhydr18418-21) or technora tcm 107 (also listed in amazon : http://www.amazon.in/Tecnora-Classic...=ams_ad_dp_ttl)

Hi,

I have used the exact same one (Prestige) for more than a year. Works very well.
However, you need to follow instructions clearly to get the best value out of it, including water level and coffee grind (I find using slightly coarser grind gives a very rich flavour)

Can't go wrong with this. Espresso lovers will really enjoy this with other modes being a bit too strong for non-coffee lovers. Frothing is something I have stopped using because I was too lazy to clean the tip.

I have been using the 106M since almost a year and make 2 shots a day on average. Super happy with the product and the after sales and whole heartedly recommend this product.

Had lost the froth nozzel and the company couriered me a new part without charging a penny.

Do remember that these machines need manual loading, tamping and cleaning of the portafilter for each shot drawn.

thanks for the quick response guys.

With my old steam driven expresso maker no more usable, I was planning to buy Croma coffee maker (https://www.croma.com/croma-crak0027...FYsVjwodO-YJoQ) which is also pump driven. It costs just Rs.5000 and had a 2 years replacement warranty. However, that model is now discontinued and all stores in Bangalore only has the display piece left. Now, I am confused between, prestige and technora. Technora seems to be more popular.

Have been using a Bialetti and a Leo. I use Lavazza Creme' E Gusto ground coffee in these pots and get great results every time.
