Recipe: Gramma Nut Latte
Who doesn't love Candyland's main mama? No one we want to know. In her honor, we created this nutty little latte -- so sweet and so good.

Combine syrups in cup, add shots and top with steamed milk. Enjoy!

Seattle Coffee Gear's Store is Moving!

We transitioned most of our operations to a new location earlier this year, and now it's time for the store to follow! This month, we'll be demolishing, painting, laying floor, setting up machines and getting our new store ready for primetime beginning on Monday, November 1st, 2010.

Our new location will be:

6911 216th St SW, Suite A, Lynnwood WA 98036

We'll be open at our current location (4210 196th St SW, Lynnwood WA 98036) until the end of October, so please still visit us there for all purchases, machine repairs and equipment advice.

Q. I descaled my Saeco or Solis superautomatic, but the descale light is still on. What should I do?

A. We regularly receive calls from folks that have this issue and it's really quite simple to fix: Have a little patience, baby!

The descale cycle on these machines can sometimes run up to about 30 minutes, and if it's gone through a full reservoir and seems like it's just sitting there doing nothing, but the light is still on, it is not finished. Refill the reservoir and let it complete its cycle.

At the tail end of the descale, it will reset the cup count and the descale warning light; if you don't allow it to fully complete, neither of these will be reset and it will still prompt you to descale.

If you have mistakenly ended the cycle too soon and need to reset the light, the only way to do that is to run a full descale cycle again.
