  1. worth a look for some ideas......?
  2. @prezes pls correct me if I've got the wrong end of the stick are the glass vials with cork stoppers used to store/measure beans for a single dose..? all the roasters bang on about resting and storing away from light and air - yet you have about 10days supply exposed to both is the quality affected-- what am i missing....?............................
  3. @Evergreen88 found a kit..! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/254986173953?hash=item3b5e5c3e01:g:2o0AAOSwtC1dnfOu
  4. the trouble (?) is you have no idea of the roast date/ supermarket shelf age perhaps try fresh roasted beans from one of the forums roasters.?
  5. @Evergreen88...hi I bought a re-furb GC 2003 from @ratty and the pressure gauge was already fitted.. its a very nice mod but needs a flanged gauge, a hole cutter and some DIY skills should you just wish to monitor the pressure ( say to adjust the OPV) you could use a pressure gauge which screws unto the bottom of your portafilter mine in the Classifieds................ @NikC is selling an individual gauge..........
  6. thanks for the info Royal Mail delivery times out to the farm will be the ''rest period''............ I'll order some today......................
  7. also the metal plate covering the innards should be earthed
  8. @Rob Mac hi...i just replaced my 2010 Classic with a 2003 model (from @ratty...) for a quick cheap upgrade you might consider a new steam wand and it might be worthwhile to check the brew pressure (and reduce to about 9 Bar if needed) welcome to the Forum..................john ex-Vancouver, BC
  9. I bought from eBay - prob not cheap but I live in the 'outback' of South Lanarkshire https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/294089838866
  10. Coffee Compass ''Brighton Lanes' -- one of the choices in their Espresso Trial packs of 3 ''...It is 100% pure arabica blend using select Estate coffees from Brazil, Peru, India and Kenya. This coffee has depth, richness and smooth dark chocolate notes with a soft acidity that lends itself marvelously to espresso...'' 16gm in, 38gm out, in 25secs at 8.2 Bar
  11. Matt just to confirm - was the 'offer' the forum discount or have I missed something else...?...thanks I made the mistake of ordering a 1kg offer (from elsewhere) - a very nice bean - but too much for a solo drinker..so i need to buy smaller amounts and organise/rotate my 'stock' interested in your Monsoon Malabar, Brazilian and El Salvador beans How long to rest after roast date..? and how long can I store before usage..? regards................................john
  12. has anyone fitted a BRASS shower block and then drilled out the 4 holes to 5mm..? cheers.......john
  13. hi would be interested to know what you bought and any tasting dose/notes regards
  14. you might like to try The Teesside Coffee Co. they do 200gm bags. and ''...£2.80 flat rate postage on all orders...''
