  1. I’ve always wanted an Audi 80 Quattro - bit like the one in Life in Mars Only trouble is I’d end up with this!
  2. I see that BB are taking pre-orders for this now: https://www.bellabarista.co.uk/the-solo-single-dose-grinder.html Has anyone done a review yet? Maybe @DavecUK? Wonder how it compares to the Niche.
  3. Ha ha, love the cat video!
  4. Dyslexic fingers or it was auto correct 🤔
  5. I think if funds would have allowed I’d have jumped straight in at the deep end and brought a L1, and probably a big flat conical. I may have even made the long journey to BB and come out with something shiny. But, as with most people I’ve had to get where I am today with my kit by building it up slowly.
  6. Crafthouse offer a rolling monthly subscription for £22 delivered for a kilo. I had all last year and they never disappointed with the variety of coffee I only stopped as I want to try someone else.

    Do you have the matching chainmail too @dfk41lol?
  8. Going to have to look at one of those for my dad’s allotment, will save a lot of back breaking!
  9. I’d ask advice from a qualified accountant or seek advice from hmrc. The law moves so quickly that some people can become easily confused over tax.
  10. Had mine for the first time as espresso - now I’m not too good at determining flavours but I think there’s a small fruit element in there, chocolate & black tea. If I had to pick them I’d go for a Central American, with Mexico being top. Probably way off ha ha
  11. I’ll give it a go too please. Due to order soon anyway.
  12. Oh I certainly understood your references, which I found offensive. It's no wonder regulars are staying away. And no, no problem with welcoming newbies, everyone should be made welcome. My surprise was at the OP reference to a fried chicken forum but I guess theres one for virtually every subject nowadays. I will not get in further discussion with you on this.
  13. Welcome, can't believe there's a fried chicken forum!
  14. Thanks always wanted to try their sweet shop.
  15. Get one these as it collect any drips etc https://www.theespressoshop.co.uk/Mobile/en/La-Pavoni-Lever-Plastic-Drip-Tray---371104/m-m-2232.aspx https://www.theespressoshop.co.uk/Mobile/en/La-Pavoni-Lever-Plastic-Grid-Plate---371103/m-m-2233.aspx
  16. Having read this thread, here's my twopeneth - I come here for one reason only & that's to read equipment reviews, see how people's coffee journey is going, read reviews of various beans & roasters etc - NOT for a political debate. If was interested in debating politics or freedom of speech then I'm sure there's a forum for it. This is the type of thread that is ruining this forum - come on guys, let's back to what we all came here for!
  17. I ended up replacing the cable, element, gaskets and switch lol, my theory was that if I replaced them all then they should work! As Dave says though check the terminals first. The good news is that they're really easy to work on.
  18. Had a similar problem a few months ago & it turned out that the mains cable had burnt out inside so I had to replace it - got our electrician to do it as I'm not good with electrics.

    No, gilbodavid. At time of asking to view he only has 4 posts. My understanding is that you need 5 posts plus to access the sales.forum

    Again! How is someone with only 4 posts able to access the sales forum? Are there no rules anymore?
  21. How is someone able to access the sales forum without any posts? ( sorry for dis-railing)
  22. Exactly this. There's too many comparisons to make to draw a conclusion, but I'd much rather a) buy from a local supplier and b) buy a product that either lasts or is quality. 90% of the time you'll end up with better customer service too.
