  4. Hi, sorry, been struggling to connect to Tapatalk. Got 170g of water with it sitting just below valve. I think it's technically considered 3 cup.

  6. Having a clear out as we are moving home. Got two of these so one has to go, I was told. It's the classic one so not sure whether it works on induction or not, only ever used it on ceramic and gas. BIALETTI Moka pot + extra basket £15 delivered to the UK Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  7. Looks in excellent condition! £200 in my opinion is way too low considering burrs alone are £170 when new. Post a pic of the serial number to see manufacture date. Last one sold on here for just over £800, however it was manufacturer refurbished. I'm [email protected] ,@jeebsy [email protected] can give you a better indication of price as they've previously owned one. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  8. Definitely blueberry + damson for me, both as espresso and aeropress. Wouldn't quite call it funk though as the flavours are quite clean. Beans look on the large side for Ethiopian, but are definitely on the more medium side of light judging by their smooth surface, puffed up size and taste of course. Also cuts through milk very nicely. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  9. Ha! Come over to my tent and I'll make you a free aeropress with some Wolichu Wachu Ethiopian beans Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  10. Haven't found it the easiest to dial in but I seem to be getting good results with 18-41.5 in 32sec with 9sec pre infusion. That's at 0.4 ek setting, so pretty fine and pretty slow extraction. EY up at 21.45% It definitely has an underlying pleasant acidity and juiciness but some deeper chocolatey biscuity flavours too. Shorter ratio seem to be overpowering in terms of acidity whereas longer ones bring out bitterness. On cupping it yesterday it's definitely sweet with balanced fruity acidity and sightly creamy mouth feel. I'm inclined to say washed Colombian but the large size of the beans i
  11. Definitely keep the shaking of the grounds in your routine. Better still use done form of pronged distribution tool to break up and stir the grounds as much as possible. You haven't detailed your ratios or timings. I generally find that my best shots tend to be 18-42 in around 22 sec from first drops. If sour increase your yield. Going from 38g to 42g to 44g can make a huge difference. If you grind finer on an EK to achieve a traditional 30 sec+ shot you are most likely going to the up in sour territory once again due to micro channeling.

  12. Probably right, might stick them on there and see what happens. Thank you Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk

  14. Got a set of 75mm Mythos titanium (TiN) burrs off a friend who's looking to sell on. They were previously used in a cafe but both cutting and grinding surface look good to me. One of the burrs has some discolouration/tarnishing which I've previously seen on other TiN burrs. What do you think they're worth before I put up on for sale thread?
