  1. I can only go off what I’ve read and do myself, but the rule of thumb was lower temps for darker roasts as they’re easier to extract and higher temps suit lighter roasts. That’s only a rule of thumb and not a coffee law before I get a thread pounding off anyone. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. That was per click. I think it’s in the manual. I’d be surprised if coming down to 93c doesn’t give you a noticeable difference (in flow) and taste, but that is a law unto the bean itself [emoji23] As for the dose touching the screen I found the same but that varied bean to bean. Some I’d get 20g in no problem others 19g was the absolute max. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Each click is meant to represent 0.5c in change. It’s poor they don’t indicate it properly. The NA one shows oF and has regular indicators. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. If you don’t mind me sticking in my 2 peneth. I had a mare with mine at first. I eventually got where I wanted it with the following: 8bar pressure. I purchased 1kg of a medium roast (mainly as that’s what I’d had when I had a play with one prior to buying). 20g basket, 20g dose. I found when I went down in size from this I couldn’t quit get the shot I was chasing. Might be I wasn’t grinding fine enough. Turned the timer off on my scale and just went by taste @ 20g in -> 44g out. Even if one seemed to lash through I still gave it a try and just changed the grind as that was then the only variable. Once I’d got one I liked I turned the timer back on (just out of curiosity more than anything). It was a [emoji462] ache for sure but at the start I was changing everything and that was a disaster. One las thing and the only thing I hated about the LMLM check the PID. I found the temperature had a considerable effect on shot times and taste. I left mine at a middle of the road 93.5c while doing all the above as it gave me plenty of play each way once I was getting something decent out. I know it all sounds noddy, but hope any of that helps. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. The only difference I noticed was the 35um seemed to defuse the water a bit more so it was a little gentler on the puck (I’ve no idea if that’s 100% accurate, but it appeared to be the case). It also stops more coffee getting behind the screen, though I didn’t really notice a vast with either. I stuck with the cafelat one due to the hole pattern not having the dead spot in the middle and if I recall Londinium now also offer a similar one. I can’t speak from extensive knowledge of the two but I don’t think you’d go wrong with either and it’d boil down to personal preference. I [email protected] or falsehips, [email protected] [emoji23] will have a more insight. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. It’s the mesh size over the screen. 200 being the larger of the two. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. https://www.cafelatstore.com/ Delivery was always tip top.
  8. If all that’s correct I’ll pass and let cat take it as that’s what I offered to do and he accepted. Are we all on the same page now? [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I'll leave it to a mod to sort. I really dont care either way as long as @lake_m gets his sale
  10. Tbh my comment still stands I don’t really care as long as it’s sold. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. That said withdrawn Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. If you wanted [email protected] go for it. I don’t have any kit atm so it was only going to sit in my draw as a just in case [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I’ll take it chief. PM inc. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Forgive my infinite ignorance, but is one preferable to the other and if so, why? Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. NVM then. Sure it’ll turn up. Thanks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
