  1. thanks for your thoughts.... I keep the beans in use in an Airscape and only add about 2-3 days supply into the Eureka hopper I'll give the stored beans a try when my current selection is finished
  2. in the first flush of joining this forum I ordered too many beans for my monthly usage the El Salvador 'Finca San Ernesto' and the Dom Republic 'Barahona' (from Teesside Coffee - @Matthew Jackson ) were roasted on 11/06/21 - both medium roast and stored unopened in cool dark larder .... are these now past their prime.? I assume those roasted early July are still OK..?
  3. Brazil Bota Fora from The Teesside Coffee Co caramel and Hazelnut...very smooth 18gm---54out in 46secs
  4. and WELCOME ............from South Lanarkshire. Scotland there are several coffee roaster in Edinburgh; however I've had great advice, and beans, from Matt from The Teesside Coffee Co who is an advertiser here..

  6. I live in SW Scotland and use bottled water ( Ashbeck English from Tesco) but will revert to tap water following data from Scottish Water...Very soft water - no scale at all in kettle after 5 years usage can somebody supply the link to the ''descaling caution'' discussions...? thanks
  7. @MrShades Ade - arrived safe and sound. a slimline version of the Gaggia Classic drip tray ( c/w longer tube) -- a worthwhile swap as, with the increased headspace, I can now clearly see the IMS basket flow there is a version to accommodate any long scales but (when not brewing) it overlaps valuable workspace
  8. Beans from BOUN COFFEE and Black Cat Coffee (the Forum offer.)..... I did notice the BOUN bag does not have a one-way valve - prob still OK though both into the freezer till I reduce my 'stock'............
  9. hi...with regards to your comment - are my MM beans too dark and/or too oily thanks.
  10. ^^^ agreed - too coarse and (newbie observations - so experts can refute..) (A)......img-8340 whats the rim in the coffee around the edge of the basket..? what is the inside diameter of the basket.? what is the outside diameter of your tamper.? cos the rim is a puzzle;..if grounds NOT tampered fully/evenly it can lead to channeling (B) img-8343 once again the edge 'rim' is evident what is the great hole...? a super channel caused by excessive pressure from OPV..?.........
  11. does it look like this..? then the OPV is suspect as noted above
  12. John......thanks .... will do. Why the tape - i thought the valve was a one-way item to release any CO2...? And stop ordering more beans until you have reduced your stocks . ....... so tempting though - see todays' offer of -30% from BOUN Beans.
  13. @C0ffeeN0vice.. hope you dont mind me butting in @MediumRoastSteam...I bought an Airscape for my daily usage beans. however I got a bit carried away with all the Roasters offers this month........ and now have 4 x 500gm and 2 x 200gm of beans in their unopened original foil bags (with valves) in the 'larder' -- all in airtight plastic clip boxes and Black Cat 500gm Ethiopian offer on its way.......... is this OK for storage ....? or shall I freeze some in their original bags ( canna vacuum pack.) thanks
