  1. Well someone above bought one and had it delivered in 10 days in August... I might order one and see what happens. Just put it on my PayPal and then a layer of protection exists
  2. starting to think about adding a PID to my silvia, not for any other reason but because i can... is this still the go to one? (I prefer the auber for the screen but i believe its much much much more expensive) do i have to have my mobile out when i use this or can i still press the give coffee button on the front of my machine?
  3. this is delicious. my palette is not refined enough to say any more than that. i get tasting notes of delicious, followed by some delicious, finishing with a touch of delicious.
  4. so then you'll have a longer wait, but its probably not going to be much more than 5mins in total. the longest part will be waiting for the steam boiler to come up to pressure/heat
  5. my whole coffee making routine is as follows: pick up coffee dosing cup grind into coffee dosing cup (10seconds, sometimes 12 seconds!) empty into portafilter and prep my puck probably a further 10 seconds put portafilter into coffee machine switch it on for 30seconds turn it off drink if im being slow and particular the whole process takes 90-120seconds all in.
  6. ah yes this is what i want on a marax. the LLC
  7. well now youre talking like that it sounds interesting, but surely then youre back up at a much higher price point. the marax is a sweet spot IMO of pricing, size, etc so what youre suggesting is an elizabeth with an e61 which is just as an interesting proposition.
  8. nah i love the idea of the lever. otherwise i get the ACS minima. and if i dont want e61 then i get the elizabeth. But i cant afford/dont need the bianca. they used to make the maraT i believe which was what i describe the marax form/size is perfect for myself and probably most home users
  9. marax with a digital pid like the one on the elizabeth? thats basically my dream machine
  10. a longer ratio has made it drinkable, did 18g in 50g out this morning. wont be buying this again but at least its now drinkable.
  11. mine just got delivered. got too many bags on the go now 😂
  12. i would be looking at replacing my plug with something like this https://www.amazon.co.uk/BG-Electrical-Socket-Compatible-Moulded/dp/B07VC1GWV9/ref=as_li_ss_tl?dchild=1&keywords=BG+electrical+smart+sockets&qid=1594983100&sr=8-2&linkCode=sl1&tag=paulhibbert-21&linkId=cec623b24bfba56e222d6973784a475c&language=en_GB
