  1. Sorry should have said, that's on a Mazzer SJ.
  2. Adjustments needed daily and throughout the day at work (brewery) due to temperature and humidity as others have said. Cold grinder in the morning vs warmer a few shots in or later in the afternoon. Only tiny adjustments.
  3. From memory you need to reduce the diameter of the bulge part. It was about 15 years ago since I did mine though. I used wet and dry paper.
  4. No worries! :-) All done. Thank you very much :-)
  5. You've run out of Pm space Tim. PayPal sent. You need my address. Cheers, Stu
  6. Silver or black please for an SJ if you still have the time Timmy? What an exciting trip!
  7. Profitec 700 teamed up with a Super Jolly. For the days when I am too busy to make coffees or when I'm away from the brewery we have a Nespresso with the milk frothing thingy.
  8. Arrived today. Fits under my SJ a treat and will hold plenty pucks! Perfect thank you very much :-)
  9. Don't want to upset anyone here :-) Happy to wait quietly in the wings :-)
  10. If Drewster decides not to take it yes please here :-)
  11. Surely switching the machine to steam mode (for however long) before pulling the shot isn't helping? You will be extracting with water that is too hot and thus be stripping bitterness from the puck? I have used the same classic for around 12 years. Regular cleaning, perfecting the grind and the tamp have all led to a great tasting shot. Temp surfing made little or no difference. I would clean the machine. Standardise your routine with weights, times and measures. Spend a bit of cash and few hours if it needs it dialling your grinder in to get 18-36-30. Leave that steam button
  12. Hello Wolfgang, New here myself. Its a very friendly and informed place to be. :-)
  13. Hmmmm.. I can see a weekend break happening here! Thanks folks :-) Looks like the app doesn't cross over to android... Oh well... Google will know :-)
  14. Will be a while until we are up that way again but anywhere in particular you recommend?
  15. It's a nicely done interior. Bare stone, timber and a cast concrete countertop. The coffee is well executed and good quality too... Well the two drinks my better half and me had were good anyhow :-)
  16. The Milkman 7 Cockburn Street Edinburgh Searching for a good quality coffee yesterday within minutes of Edinburgh Waverley station whilst waiting for a connection. Found this little gem within 3-5 minute walk of the waiting room. Head out of the station onto Market street and turn right. Pass the Military Tattoo ticket shop and take the next left up into Cockburn Street. Currently swathed in scaffolding you will find a great little coffee bar selling a nice range of cakes and good coffee done properly. An on demand Mazzer feeding a La Marzocci (couldn't see much more
  17. Thanks JR I am really looking forward to getting the SJ seasoned and dialled in. The Classic has served us very very well from new and despite its foibles it produces a decent shot and not bad milk with a bit of fettling. I know there is better out there now. There wasn't a great deal of choice back then in terms of prosumer style machines. Its going to be an expensive journey that I am putting down to midlife crisis, in any event a shiny new top end machine will be significantly cheaper than a sports car
  18. A rather belated hello from the Peak District. A spate of delayed onset upgradeitis has led me to unearth old forum registrations and register on this one. My trusty Gaggia Classic (modded steam wand) and Iberital MC2 has served me well for the last 12 years or so but the upgrade bug has bitten hard! Looking forward to getting back up to speed with things! Cheers, Stuart
