  1. @dsc - i think they are confusing "professional" and "pressurised" in that ad....the pressurised basket is the non standard add on thing you buy if you want tp use pre-ground. Sent from my LG-H850 using Tapatalk
  2. Available for pre order: https://kinugrinders.com/index.php?page=m_home_page.public.show_product&Id_Product=32 Sent from my LG-H850 using Tapatalk
  3. Wow! Thanks so much, drop me a PM and will get it out to you as soon as I can. Sent from my LG-H850 using Tapatalk
  4. I purchased this on the forum a year or so ago and has been lightly used since. It can produce amazing shots (can post my own video links if you want). I also purchased the new bottomless portafilter which with the updated stand cost over £50. Also contains second brew head for back to back shot production and the lovely stainless steel tamper. Going to offer for the same it was originally offered (so you get the bottomless pf for free) £135 shipped. Only reason for sale is I purchased a Cafelat Robot so don't need 2 manual espresso makers.

  8. Personally I would start with something dark roast (then you only need to do a simple pre heat of the pf on hot water), dose 17-18g and start on the finer side (if you choke the machine then you know your grinder is capable) then loosen as required. Do a really good wdt and pi for 10s at start of shot. Once you have it dialled in you should be able to get consistent 'perfect' shots with plenty of crema esp with darker roasts. Adding a paper filter (draw round tamper for template using any filter paper) disk under the screen is fun to try and can help things to the next level. It took me a good 5 ish sink shots before I got close first time so you will be fine. Sent from my LG-H850 using Tapatalk
  9. Panama Natural is my current thinking. Sent from my LG-H850 using Tapatalk
  10. Exactly most of my holiday planning these days starts with a pre-emptive Google search of 'specialty coffee shops in...'
  11. And to expand on that...you deserve a grinder that can grind fine enough and with enough consistency to get repeatable results with ALL roast profiles. Both these grinders can do 'ok' but try running a decaf through and that would highlight the challenges. Lots of stuff to search related to this on the forum already. If you can expand budget then clearly the Niche should be at the front of the race or perhaps if you don't mind hand grinding a Kinu M47. Failing that a second hand Mazzer commercial style flat grinder such as the Jolly would be fine.
  12. You might want to hang on...Kinu about to release their cheapest grinder yet, the 'Phoenix', even cheaper than the traveller.
  13. Ironically under dark roast on my viewport due to the styles/background/ad placement whatever the link is not visible!! 😂
  14. It's barely useable tons of duplicate threads make it a very unpleasant user experience. It was the way I used to consume the forum...so yeah...
  15. Shout to these guys: https://formative.coffee/ Just off Victoria Street nr Westminster. Really a coffee first place and some great retail choices. I had a beautiful La Cabra batch and bought some La Cabra beans to take home (quality, quality roaster!). Sent from my LG-H850 using Tapatalk
