  1. Sour or bitter? Usually sour is associated with water being too cold and under extractions. Bitter is associated with grinding fine and over-extracting. @MJWB knows quite a bit about pour overs and helped me quite a bit when I was starting off with my V60.
  2. I’m not sure where you live, but I’m happy to show you the Niche if you are near Newbury in Berkshire.
  3. if you can have both at the same time (moneywise) get the Niche and try it out. Worse case scenario you can resell it losing a few quid, just put that down to experience and rental costs as dfk says. I had a Kinu M68 before. Great grinder, but I much prefer the usability, consistency and ease of use of the Niche.
  4. Please google and do some research yourself. It’s like comparing a Hyundai i20 to a VW polo. They are both cars, but there are differences. In the case of the grinders, the Eureka Mignon, is a trial, tested, maintainable, repairable no frills sturdy grinder which will last you a lifetime. The Sage.... well, it’s marketed as a kitchen appliance. Honestly, please google and research. There are other grinders too. As for the £200 for the Mignon, you can get them second hand when they pop up on the For Sale section of this forum. There are other machines on the FS section too, for under £200... just a thought. Good luck.
  5. Treble post it seems.... https://coffeeforums.co.uk/topic/48981-sage-bes875uk-vs-bes810bss/
  6. Personally, if I were to choose one of them, I’d go for the Duo Temp Pro and get a better grinder to pair with it. Niche, Eureka Mignon, depends on your budget. You could get a second hand Eureka Mignon for under £200.
  7. double post.... https://coffeeforums.co.uk/topic/48981-sage-bes875uk-vs-bes810bss/ Why...
  8. It would be great if you could report your roasts here to keep in one place and for future reference. https://coffeeforums.co.uk/topic/10944-todays-roast/
  9. Haha. Now I read your other post and it seems you have the same issue I had. I resorted to buying a new lever assembly in the end. It’s one of the weak points of the lever design and it has been addressed in the esperto version.
  10. I do have one, but it’s also knackered. If you have means of soldering or riveting, then you can make it good again. Happy to let it got for a fiver collected (you know where from). :-)
  11. You can’t replace the fork as it’s riveted to the lever. Or you buy the esperto kit and the lever is actually screwed into the fork, a much better design.
  12. Where’s the movement? On the “fork” part of the lever assembly or where he lever joins the fork? There’s certainly play between where the fork slots into the group, that’s normal. It’s a sideways (lateral). Some people shim it with SS washers or silicone.
  13. Hello! Good effort! It’s hard to judge by looks only, but the ones on the left seem way overly roasted! Did you take a look at the Today’s roast thread? I’d encourage to read, stop, pause, wait and read it again. There’s invaluable information there. As you know, hearing first crack on the gene is hard.
