  1. it is a work of art ! out of interest, do you still get sneezes with the Londinium ?. When pouring shots on either the la pavoni, Electa or Cimbali, If I release the PF too quick I run the risk of it sneezing coffee grinds over me. Has the londinium got around this in anyway ?? .... or does it not happen due to a bigger grouphead .. or just because its so beautiful you cant rush anything anyway as you spend to long admiring it ?
  2. Haven’t posted in over a year .... but had to drop in to say I love this months ssssss. My favourite of the sssss in 2 years .. works really well in milk, my wife didn’t believe me when I told her it was from Steve

  5. I have had both ..... much prefer the europiccola ..... I only ever make 2 coffees at a time max, mostly 1 coffee ..... for that it excels, heat up time is FAR quicker being that much smaller. Never saw the point of the pro the way I was using it ... it look longer to heat up, but still overheated in the same time ... so no point having the bigger tank ... having the pressure gauge as standard saves you having one, but thats it
  6. The joys of having a roaster ..... Greens are a plenty and its easy not to run out of them .... when you see you are getting low, you roast some more .... at the very worst, you leave it too late, cant rest the beans and end up with a cup of excitable crema that refuses to disappear .. ever.
  7. I have a Krups and a Magimix Pixie. They are the same, they work the same, they feel the same, they are for a better word, the same ..... I think the krups looks nicer though ... as a block of plastic can look nice.
  8. I ordered my short and long taster packs yesterday .... currently sat by the door waiting for them .... being royal mail probably won't turn up till monday pfffft I would try the freeze dried though if he started doing it ... would definitely require some sort of faff and process involved in making though for it too really be accepted
  9. the best ?? ... its the same answer for everything Whats the best exercise for loosing weight .... the one you actually do Whats the best car to drive .... the one you actually use as opposed to leave in the garage so it doesnt get wet. Whats the best Road bike to own .... The one you get on and pedal the majority of the time Whats the best film .... The one you watch the most. Same with coffee machines ..... For me the best coffee machine by far is a La Pavoni europiccola ... why ? .. it heats up in 7 mins, makes a great coffee, looks awesome, small foot print, easy to maintain and repair, cheap AND I enjoy using it. My other machines might make a superior tasting cup .. but if I cant be arsed / dont have the time to turn them on to make a coffee, then they arnt the best ... They dont make coffee when no being used So I guess you need to define "best"
  10. I blame "spouses" .... sure every newbie amateur barista wants a used classic with a blob of rust on the frame and a massive hunk of ex-costa coffee shop towering above it, then to spend the next 2 weeks soldering electronics to it so it works better. but the bank manager says "no" ... why dont you get a new machine that you dont need to take apart, that has warranty, that isn't battered or resprayed and that ha a grinder that won't take over my kitchen And thus is born the sage generation

    15ml ? ....... ... is that to the top of the cream, or is the cream on top of the 15ml of liquid ?
  12. You are already bringing coffee and an aeropress .... You have already been judged, a kettle can't make it worse

    I like the sound of the silly commuter racing thread .. Cheers ..... Although finding a decent forum will end up with me buying n+1 won't it ?

    Cycling forums

    Hello, anyone belong to any decent (ie like this forum) cycling forums ?? joined cyclechat.net a couple of weeks back, but really not feeling it, normally I am quite a relaxed guy, but the pettiness, fighting and whining there is just too much, I guess it's their average age making the antagonism rife as each one can't let go of their once held alpha male status ... I digress with aegist comments ... See they are doing this to me. anyway ... Anyone recomend a good road forum that talks about cycling, training, nutrition, carbon etc etc and won't kick off if they discover i have a helmet and live my life one strava segment at a time not being a bunch of racist daily mail readers would also be good
