    EK43 Hopper

    Don’t worry it’s not a sideline I’m doing. I’m just trying to get one exactly as I want it. 13cm tall (that includes the insert to the machine so only about 10cm on top. If you want it super smooth there’s enough spare on the hopper walls to hit it up with some wet and dry sandpaper. £21 which includes P&P (within UK). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Pretty much as titled. It’s a 3D printed mini hopper in black. Top image shows it on the EK43 if you leave I the hopper foam insert is as sung as a bug. £9.50 includes P&P Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. He got a La Marzocco Linea Mini. The last I heard he was very happy with it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Yeah I can’t see it not needing a physical mod on the mini. There’s one already available via a third party so I suspect that’s what LM are adopting that or similar, plus whatever shines they add.
  6. The mother Teresa and Kissinger books were excellent, can’t wait to start this next. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Not sure what machines use a 57mm tamper, but if you do have one Pullman are quality tampers (well the ones I've used have been) and a bargain at £10! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/254396718396?ul_noapp=true
  8. It’s based on or in collaboration with Etzinger. By all accounts they’re very capable grinders (the etz ones I’ve seen) and if it’s like their etzmax it’ll handle single dosing (I’ve not read much on this though). Not sure about the auto tamping, just seems to be another thing that can and will break [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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 o
  13. 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]
  14. It’s the mesh size over the screen. 200 being the larger of the two. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. https://www.cafelatstore.com/ Delivery was always tip top.
  16. 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
  17. I'll leave it to a mod to sort. I really dont care either way as long as @lake_m gets his sale
  18. Tbh my comment still stands I don’t really care as long as it’s sold. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. That said withdrawn Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. 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

    Forgive my infinite ignorance, but is one preferable to the other and if so, why? Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. NVM then. Sure it’ll turn up. Thanks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. Reviving the thread as surprisingly I need to borrow one again. Is anyone aware of its current location, rumour has it, it was last seen with the [email protected] [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
