  1. I’ve had both machines, in my experience the auto milk steaming on the Oracle is a poor substitute for steaming milk manually on the DB and one if the reasons I moved away from the Oracle. The inbuilt grinder limits the potential of the Oracle which I got around by owning an additional stand alone grinder. For convenience the Oracle wins, for the best coffee and microfoam a stand alone grinder and the DB win hands down ( assuming you get a decent grinder of course!)
  2. Cardiologist friend is convinced that drinking coffee can trigger symptoms of atrial fibrillation in people that have the condition. I couldn’t get the link to take me to the article, sounds interesting, I wonder who sponsored the research.
  3. Hi Jan, Which roaster are you using for your beans and how freshly roasted are the beans? If they have been roasted in the past few days it’s difficult to dial them in for a consistent pour, generally they improve if you rest them for a week or even two (time depending on the beans) in my experience.
  4. @Planter I’ve ordered the Koda from Lakeland this evening, they price matched cuckooland.com who have a 10% discount this weekend. It saved about £24 and has the benefit of the Lakeland warranty and their excellent customer service.
  5. http://thepizzabike.co.uk/news/roccbox-vs-uuni-2// @Planter The post linked to discusses the users experience of baking over 10 000 pizzas using a Roccbox Vs their experience using an Uuni. Their account of using the Roccbox sounds like it matched your criteria.
  6. What specifically would you like to learn from the training, are there consistent things about the drinks you are making with the Sage that aren’t what you’d like them to be? What sage machine do you have currently and what grinder have you been using? It’s possible that a forum member nearby may be able to help you out or offer some training.
  7. @aled I'm in Stroud tomorrow, early evening, and am happy to bring the machine as far as Coventry for the buyer if that helps them to work out the sale with you. Cheers.
  8. You've lost me a bit here, I missed the original thread which you referred to in your post, what was the threat, who was it from and were there reasonable grounds for them requesting whatever they requested?
  9. How old is the machine please, have you owned it from new?
  10. Hi, Where did you buy it from originally please and what price are you asking?
  11. How does the build of your Vesuvius compare to your ECM machine @Rom
  12. @jt196 Are you agreeing to buy this now or just expressing an interest? I ask because it's unclear and if someone else comes along and says they will take it, you'll miss out unless you've agreed the deal.
