    Automatic Coffee Machines for Home

    Is always better to purchase both things separately, but if you can't afford is fine to stick for a while with something like that. De'Longhis are not the best but they can do the job for you. ps.: some retailers sell it on promo  just be careful to know whether they are worth it or not...

    Are Coffee shops profitable?

    I said to the OP if he doesn't have the kind of secret formula Starbucks does have he would not succeed, because, YES, they profit and you can't compete with that.They are not a coffee shop, they are as you said a multi billion dollar company. I don't think the OP has in mind opening a new SB...

    Are Coffee shops profitable?

    Oi? I think you are ironically mistaking apples for oranges.... He was addressing the fact Starbucks can't be really bad amidst all the criticism, otherwise "nobody would be there in the first place"  and make it the huge successful company it is, so your comment would apply to HIS commentary...

    Are Coffee shops profitable?

    Lol..... you know, McDonalds does billions every year and does you consider their cousine any fancy and of high quality? There goes your analysis on Starbucks. Sorry, I know this sounds offensive, but your point of view is quite pedestrian. Poke me back when the taste of the masses indicates any...

    Advice and opinions needed

    The pizzeria routine is quite "Light" when it comes to complexity of cooking as you are often following at least half the time the same recipe over and over again. I don't know how much crowded and fine cousine alike is this new place you are going to work on, but there is definitely more...

    Are Coffee shops profitable?

    If you do not have the magic (shitty) recipes of a starbucks, you would rather focus on high end customers, and that requires good barista machines, good coffee, and skills. It would be expensive but I have to say that people are often growing more and more demanding when it comes to coffee.

    Mustard seeds in Bombay potatoes

    Would depend on your standards for taste: what French mustard are you going to use? How many seeds correspond to a teaspoon of it (how concentrated is it). I believe you could substitute one thing for another for sure, but you will never know what is the original taste and probably that doesn't...

    raspberry ganache truffles

    Indeed, I don't know how easy would it be for him to handle raspberries fresh, he could optionally freeze it inside vacuum bags and handle them like that.

    raspberry ganache truffles

    I would say sealed IN THE FRIDGE. Even though is winter, is always better to keep it cool, raspberries are quite acid and they may get fast way too sour when exposed to indoor temperatures depending on how warm is inside your home. I would not take the risk. Sealed inside the fridge will prevent...
