Right. So in the end don't let the process name or description mislead you. Taste it and let your tongue decide if the taste is worth the money spent

Do you guys mean during processing they add certain flavour to cover up the defects? Or They manipulate the beans thru processing?

Traditionally "processing methods" are the way farmers use to get rid of the cherry flesh in order to reach the beans.
Eventually the farmers discovered that different processing methods impart a different flavor profiles to the coffee, naturally.
The washed coffee usually tastes cleaner and much elegant; where the natural coffee tastes much complex due to more fermentation happening but sometimes it could lead to unwanted flavor.

However, how do we define "unwanted" flavor? I have tasted a coffee from an experienced roaster and it was strong in strawberry and peach flavor. Guess what, the roaster told me that the coffee was bad due to "strawberry" being an unwanted flavor from "over fermentation". However, if a coffee contain strong strawberry flavor note, it will score very high mark on the cupping table nowadays.

In my opinion, not only people's taste preference being subjective, it also links to the change of the coffee culture's trend.

Ummmm... The specifications for the RĂ¥dig is 33cl. That IMHO is two "real" cups. If you prefer milk-based coffee, you can also pull a lower water ratio shot. From what I can remember, it fits 25g of grounds. It's an amazing deal.

Guys, im using an electric grinder. How often do i need to clean it? Do i need to clean it everytime i use it? since there will be retention on the burrs, if i just leave it will it make my next grounds taste stale?
*
i clean it once a month..or after i used 1kg of beans...
also..i usually purge a little bit before dosing for my shot..how much to purge depends on your grinder..

i googled on that waeco, looks decent enough. As long as you can keep the whole milk carton in the fridge, it'll make your life a lot easier
