  1. Past hour
  2. Your foam looks quite thin. Do you get the watery bit at the end? I measured the water added to the milk and it was quite high, the steam seems quite wet and spits. Based on how the thermojet works I'm not suprised. I dont think the machine lacks power, I think it just can't keep the high steam flow for long enough and keep it as steam rather than water. To be honest I think I am going to get a barista express for now as I don't think the thermojet is a step forward at all.

    Storage

    I also like my coffee gator. The scoop is actually useful too. James Hoffman reckons vacuum packing is wasteful and OTT and I think I agree. I just froze some in an old ice cream tub.
  4. Wrap a duster around the plastic and try again. Did you cross thread it when you replaced it ? Perhaps that is why it has stripped the teeth when trying to adjust. With the worm drive removed it should turn easily with fingers.
  5. I got the popcorn out at the beginning of all this....I'm saying nuthin.
  6. Hi Have the barista touch, but always steam with the manual setting. This is my effort in a glass.
  7. I have done that but I can't actually remove or manually turn the plastic gear without the worm screw, it feels totally wedged on. Sent from my SM-G977B using Tapatalk
  8. 40-60mg/L alkalinity/KH as CaCO3. Your water authority may be able to tell you the alkalinity/KH/bicarbonate content of your tap water. If not, you can get a KH drop kit. You have a source of minerals piped into your home from the water company, you can mix it with RO to get in the above range. You can alternatively add sodium bicarbonate to pure water, 100mg/L will give you 60mg/L alkalinity.
  9. @Mouzone loosen/undo the two screws and worm drive will move away from cog..
  10. This is what self isolation does, with a 3yr old and 8yr climbing the walls lolp
  11. I cant get mine right at all, I just put it down to the fact the machine isn't up to steaming the milk due to lack of power from from wand, I get about 40% separation. I've tried with the water and washing up liquid and you can see it much better that way.
  12. Hi Folks I am after replacement 58mm single 7g grouphead baskets but I want a straight sided baskets because the ones I have all have a ridge in them and basically they are impossible to knock the grinds out cleanly and I have to wash the grouphead out every time I use them. Can anyone help please

  14. Yes it does that, but it then does it a second time at around 30-45 seconds in. Very odd. This seems to create a thin water layer under the incorperated microfoam. I've had it 3 months.
  15. Today
  16. Hi Jony, We don't stock Chemex's at the moment, only V60's - Definitely something I'd like to look at in the future though! I'm hoping to put some discount packs together soon for brewing kits which will include a nice bag of filter coffee to go with, I'll be sure to post on here when that goes live!
  17. Nice Dog we have a Boston. Shame it's not on brewing stuff may of tried a Chemex if you had them
  18. Hey all, Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy out there, as more and more people are brewing at home, we've opened up our discounts during this Pandemic. Brewathome Will get 25% discount on all coffee's online, hoping that a little freshly roasted coffee can be a positive pick me up to start your day! Just add that code at checkout and the discount should apply! - www.crownandcanvas.co.uk As a newly established roaster during a Very Bizarre time in the world, any support means the world to us!
  19. I think you will find when you first start the steam it kicks out water before the steam due to the thermojet, I've been doing some tests on mine this morning. How long you had your machine?
  20. Hi all, I'd like to swap out my current gold classic case due to corrosion build up over the years. Testing the waters to determine availability of straight (and cheap) cases. Drop me a reply/pm should you happen to own/know of one. Thanks!
  21. Hi @tammma, Sorry for the delayed reply! We roast pretty much to order, mainly to minimise on waste and to ensure that each order can arrive with the biggest window of 'optimum freshness' I like to make sure that any coffee's we ship are within 7 days of of their roast date, and just to add a little extra support during the Covid-19 issue , If you use the code 'Brewathome' its currently 25% discount on coffee! I hope this helps, any questions just let me know!
  22. So it appears i will now have two v60 lol May of slightly over bought Anyone close to bacup want a pack of espresso from rave foc give me a chout
  23. So I think there is definitely something funky up. beautiful microfoam for 90% but always a liquid bit at the bottom. I think the steam wand might be kicking out too much water and spitting because the thermojet can’t keep up. This is what happens when I run it for 45 or so seconds. Think I’m going to return it once this is over! My method now is to just pour till that point and have a bit over.
  24. Beans have been roasted, they are being packed ready for sending Monday. Corona precautions and less people working means the process has been slightly extended hence trying to get the payments sorted quickly. These beans appreciate a nice rest
  25. @DavecUK & @MWJB are the guys who should put you right, just wait until they pop by...
  26. Those videos left me more confused than when I started. Is there a consensus on what the best water for espresso is? RO water with remineralisation but what minerals and how much.
