  1. Cheeky, I like it. But this happened when a forum member sold his Niche and bypassed my wanted thread. Worst that can happen is that you make me an offer to buy and I say no - you can then go straight to the FS forum. I don't expect to be given first refusal, but I would really appreciate it if I was having expressed a genuine interest to buy.
  2. Thanks @dan1502, keep me posted please
  3. Yes - check out ‘There Goes Coffee”. And if you want to see it in action the guy who runs it is in one of the buildings on Colmore Row in Birmingham most mornings. You’ll find him on Twitter.
  4. How many grams? (You got there just in time )
  5. Yes definitely contact Niche even if they then tell you how to fix it yourself. This is a potential safety risk that I’m sure they would want to investigate.
  6. It was! Brand new they're not a terrible price. I did see a refurbed one advertised at 30% extra on top of the brand new price...
  7. Regretting not buying the Malhkoenig (sp?) Guatemala that @Hasi sold a little while back!
  8. Not dead set on buying this yet but looking for options. Would prefer it to be within a reasonable distance of Birmingham for ease of inspection and collection. I'm sure one will come along for sale in the next couple of months but worth me throwing this out there.
  9. I foresee a solicitor’s letter in their future.
  10. I should have done this for the first time months ago, but in the battle to get my morning fix, work, and do my bit for our young son meant something had to give. I removed the top nuts and the pin and managed to push the rod down so far, but I sense that the seal has...sealed it in place. I can't pop the screen out because the rod is very stiff. What's my next play? Cafiza? Citric acid? Sorry, @jimbojohn55 - not the greatest tribute to your fine craftsmanship.
  11. Was this by post or in person? If so, how do they refill the tin?
  12. Honestly, it depends. If you would like a London-style experience then no. If you are happy to go along with a couple of mates/significant other/whomever then you might well enjoy it for what it is and then pop into the city afterwards. For me it was disappointing.
  13. Against my own better judgment I went today. It remains a poor relative of LCF. Some credibility lent by the presence of Hasbean, Caravan, and Origin. Good to see local roaster Ngopi and (less local) Iron and Fire in attendance. Sadly the former didn’t attend with an espresso machine, and the latter charged a quid for drinks that would be free as samples at any other coffee festival.
  14. It’s a very poor relation of LCF. You won’t spend more than an hour there. Very little there in the way of kit.
  15. Any recommendations, please? Thanking you!
