    • Price drop to £130
    • It definitely is made to match the, existing look of the ECM machines and the ECM group. 
    • 95% of mine go to a mushroom farm locally in exchange for the odd few king oyster mushrooms (which are incredible).  The other 5% goes to anyone locally who wants good compost starter. 
    • Yeah I think the main issue is that vegware just gets thrown in with all the other recycling and actually shouldn't be. It either needs to go in a food compost bin and left for years or a commercial composter pile. Of which there are next to none.    Biodegradable cups are really the only way forwards, but again the by-product of manufacture is the issue. For me at least. 
    • With some regret, for sale is my complete Coffee Making setup.  Having suffered some ill health since April of 2019 which I'm only just getting past, I come to the decision to move on my complete setup.  Collection only please, from near Armitage, Staffordshire. Rocket Appartamento Copper side inserts I am the second owner, purchasing directly from the original.  Bought originally from Bella Barista, the warranty expired 26/03/18.  This machine is from 2016 and I bought it shortly before the warranty ran out. It works perfectly, I have kept it exceptionally clean at all times and not long after purchase I replaced the standard shower screen with an IMS Competition screen. The group Gasket was changed at the same time. Single spout, Double spout and Bottomless portafilters, all original Rocket equipment are included along with 21g Rocket basket & 18g VST basket. I've only ever used filtered water with the machine in an effort to reduce limescale. No packaging is present but the original manual & (out of date) warranty card are.   Mazzer Major Bought second hand, reconditioned.  It features titanium burrs and I estimate that I've put through about 5kg of beans. I do have the original hopper as seen in some images, along with the 'lens hood' mod for single dosing & limiting retention.  Original packaging is also present.   Extras A variety of Acme cups, all with saucers & includes a few extra that are not pictured, including some red espresso cups.  A single Rocket cappuccino cup is also included. Motta milk jug, Sage milk jug, Electronic scales, with timer, Motta tamper, Chinese copy of the OCD distribution tool. Group cleaning devise from a previous forum group buy.   I would like to sell this as a complete setup for ease, collection only due to insurance issues and difficulty with postage.  You're more than welcome to see this working and I can even include nearly a full bag of Red Brick beans from Square Mile.   Any questions etc, please ask away.   £850 collected (Eureka Mignon is not included)
    • So temptation got me today temp 96 15.5g in 31g out 32seconds waiting for group gasket so less accurate  As mentioned I am not remotely an expert 😁 the aroma was very different at bean and grind stage. Made as latte feels smooth and while usually i add a teaspoon of sugar no need with this   Taste I thought of dark rum, maybe blueberry some kind of fruity flavour but mine is not a refined sense of taste. As a new on lsol member an enjoyable experience and lots more experimentation after i get a group gasket fitted. Thank you @Hairy_Hogg and @Daren 👍
    • Thanks, I'll give the Mahogany Malabar a go next order with them.  Yes, fully agree about Compass...excellent service and value.   Another recent one I tried was from Rave, their single origin Colombian Suarez Project beans....absolutely fab roast, really rich, well rounded with full caramel flavour and a slight sweetness that lingered for a long while.  I found them best after almost two weeks from roasting.
    • Foundry, Costa Rica, San Fransisco natural Caturra & Catuai: Clean, fleshy yellow fruit, caramel, turned out very good with N Surrey tap water. Step21 method: V60 02, 14.7g:210g. 70g in each of 3 fast spirals (about 12s each), one pour every 40s, last one via a strainer. Niche at 53.
    • No problem, I'll get it weighed later and let you know how much postage will be. Thanks, Dan
