    ... but it's not like our postie's been off duty today. We've got a bunch of stickers [emoji41] Hot rod or not, they're meant to go on automobiles [emoji23] And then postie brought something very special... big chunk to the right: What's it doing? Plug it in and it heats - and it burns burns burns... a ring of fire!! [emoji41] ...and it makes a fiery ring [emoji23]

    Is that the machine with the video that gave me PTSD just by watching it? yes starring HBs Jim Schulman. But there's more than one video, one gives you PTFE, another one a PID, maybe even SPIF?

    Hi, I’m hoping there’s a pre-loved shiny HX machine out there which is no longer wanted (but still loved!). I don’t have my heart set on a specific brand (can’t presently afford to be fussy), but having a creative background - looks are pretty important me, along with a great experience of learning to handle the machine’s ‘quirks’ . Budget isn’t great, up to £400 or so, but may be able to fiddle with that if the right thing comes along. I love the exposed E61, and polished metal machines, small footprint is handy too. I know it’s a big ask, but they’re defo out there (ACS Minima find was a beautiful example - I’ve spoken to my psychologist and we’ve dealt with this blow and have packed my feelings away now 😂). If it helps, I’m driving to Scotland at the end of August (wedding, not mine), and could return back south via ‘somewhere’ to avoid couriers (we know how they love to ‘tweak’ a machine in transit!). My family can budge up and accommodate it in the car (or walk home). I’ve probably missed off vital info, if so, please poke me, but in a nice way - I’m sensitive 👍🏻

    I will give them a look, I have a fudge blend medium coming from Rave in the next couple of days and a Guatemalan Bojangles coming from York Emporium. I tried another aeropress of the dark roast but instead of off the boil I heated the kettle to 80c and then made it. It was way better than before, the problem with the Moccamaster is that you can’t control the temp, it’s a range of between 92 and 96c, this is the second Moccamaster unit I have tried as I wanted something that was repeatable. Maybe I should just stick to light or medium roasts with it. I have a Clever dripper and an Oxo pour over auto drip which I can change the temperaturewith the kettle, it’s maybe not worth the fuss with this coffee. I think I need to find a good coffee and then hopefully I can stick with it for a bit as the issue I have at the moment is I’m always getting different coffees and by the time I get near a decent brew I’ve run out.

    Well he is coming to get a levelling tool, it would be rude not to offer him a coffee and geek out over machines at the same time. You are welcome any time M, if you are ever passing near Coventry. Though you'd have to steam your own milk as my skills are very lacking there, but I've seen pictures of your pro looking latte art.

    I sell my own beans plus sell hot coffee at Farmers Markets at the weekends. I was using the Niche as decaf with pre weighed tins, a Compak E10 on demand for the Vesuvius, a Auberin timed Mazzer Royal for the L1 plus another grinder (Macap Mx7) for bag grinding. Decaf was low volume so the Niche coped but at higher volumes pre weighed tins is essential. I now use an EK43 with the L1 plus for bagged grinding and Decaf. Pre weighing enough tins for the day takes 15 to 20 mins so it’s not too onerous. The Mazzer or Macap took over 100 seconds to grind a bag of 250g - the EK gets through it in about 10 seconds. You cannot obviously use the Niche for bagged coffee (1g per sec, 4 reloads of the hopper and getting into bag a problem.) Workflow with the EK, whilst slower than the E10, grinds quicker (1s vs 3.5s) so for the fact I’m now at 2 grinders instead of 4 plus the fast bag grinding it was an easy decision. Grind quality on the bagged grinding is better also. Re the first post, if you are not bag grinding, with just the one group and use pre weighed tins (essential) the Niche will keep up with your Espresso machines throughput. I would allow for a stir of the grinds when in the cup to avoid possible channeling but that only takes a second. Added benefit is its WAY easier to carry and move around!

    Ask Niche to post a set of stronger springs, it will solve the issue. You must have a close fitting grinder where the burr slides up and down, although if it has only just started happening some lubricant may have got on the top plate pusher, even so, the springs will stop it. Temporarily you can put a couple of small hard drive screws, one in the top of each spring to increase the length by 1.5mm which will also stop it while you wait...but be careful not to drop them into the chamber without realising when you screw the top on.

    Ageing of beans - tamping and distrubution . The way the water moves through a coffee puck and how long it takes are effect by all of those . Some people will say taping pressure but it's unlikely to be that to the degree you are talking about. Other than that is your machine displaying any odd noises or straining while working that it wasnt before >

    Many on here might disagree, and to be fair I've also fancied an EK43 at first, but it has become a fashion beyond need or use-case for coffee shops to run these things. Maybe it's even fading by now as owners realise what faff is means to leverage all the added variables - especially across multiple staff members/shifts. A speciality coffee shop shall have a distinctive style that includes selective purchase of beans, milk, etc. and respective brewing methodology. It's already hard enough to train all staff pulling proper shots from preset equipment and get milk texturing and presentation right (in the way you want it to be). But letting them weigh or even change grind settings for different beans you can be sure it'll be messed up at some point.

    I haven't been to the Peak District for many years - So unfortunately can't help :-( Thinking about it - last time I was in the Peak District I think I was camping in the middle of nowhere and the only hope of coffee would have been a spirit stove..... Sorry

    VIAGRA Press Release**In pharmacology, all drugs have two names - a trade name and a generic name.For example, the trade name of Tylenol is acetaminophen. Aleve is known as naproxen; Amoxil is amoxicillin, and Advil is ibuprofen. The FDA has been looking for a generic name for VIAGRA. After consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced it has settled on the generic name of mycoxafloppin. Also considered were mycoxafailin, mydixadrupin, mydixarizin, mydixadud, dixafix, and of course ibepokin.Pfizer Corp is making an announcement today that Viagra will soon be available in liquid form and will be marketed by Pepsi Co as a power beverage suitable for use as a mixer. Pepsi's proposed ad campaign claims it will now be possible for a man to literally pour himself a stiff one. Obviously we can no longer call this a soft drink. This additive gives new meaning to the names of cocktails, highballs and just a good old fashioned stiff drink. Pepsi will market the new concoction by the name of Mount & Do.The long term implications of drugs and medical procedures must be fully considered: Over the past few years, more money has been spent on breast implants and Viagra than was spent on Alzheimer's research. It is believed that by the year 2030, there will be a large number of people wandering around with huge breasts and erections who can't remember what to do with [email protected] no ability to change text/background colour?

    El Sapo Washed Caturra from Colombia, roasted by Koppi Brewed this on the Behmor Brazen Plus, filling up to calibration line (~650ml) and using the Kalita Wave 185 as a basket instead of the stock basket. Set to 96C and 30 sec preinfusion. 38g in/530g out - 1.35% TDS 19.5% EY - pretty much spot on - easily one of the best coffees for me this year, super clean and fruity with lots of cranberries and currants like acidity.

    Possibly looking to sell up the big machine but I have no idea what it would be worth. Fully stripped down and restored back to its former glory. New element and spare element (worth £50) Naked and standard pf’s Tons of baskets. This is a plumbed in machine. It will pull from a bottle though. Rotary pump and a 5ltr HX boiler The rear lower skirt panels may need a lick of paint in the future but ok for now. Upgraded steam wand to a multi position wand. Steam and water on paddles. Volumetrics Don’t know what it would be worth so ideas welcome. Thank you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
