  1. Save for a bigger step up. My first grinder was a Mignon mk2, had it a few years then upgraded to a Mythos Clima Pro. I figured I’d not need to upgrade again & not lose money from multiple upgrades in between.
  2. When I first saw a clima pro for the first time it was at Al’s place paired with his Londinium, he let me into the know of the trick of a bag of marbles on top of your beans to keep the downward pressure more consistent when you get to a lower level of you don’t have more beans to go in.

  3. Is it still under warranty? If so, return it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Looking for some recommendations for a grinder and machine for a friend. It’s for their brother in law and they’ve said the budget is absolutely no more than £500. I’m guessing maybe a Mignon as a grinder but I’ve no idea about a machine. Suggestions for both grinder and machine would be hugely appreciated! Thanks in advance Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Didn’t have the right sized spanners did I! Should be arriving tomorrow, it’s been a long week with no coffee! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Good stuff. Finally got my Molykote the other day & going to look at my machine tonight Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I went to buy some 111 from univarsc.com and just thought I’d double check on the site chat service and they suggested I use this.. https://www.univarsc.com/products/molykote-p-1900-anti-seize?variant=16344272994378 Way more expensive and also 400g which from what I understand I’ll never get through. If everyone uses 111 then I’ll just use that if it’s fine to use. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Is there any particular reason why Molycote 111 is suitable for lubricating a machine? Needing to sort my R58 lever as it’s not moving as smooth as it should, just wondering if this is the vest stuff to get for it. Thanks in advance Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Thank you! Yes, been back flushing but didn’t know to lubricate too. That’s great, thanks, I’ll look to get myself some of that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Had my R58 about 1.5 years now (I think) and just in the last couple of days have noticed the lever isn’t moving as smoothly as it used to. Feels like there’s some sort of resistance somewhere. It tends to be in the short distance between leaving its resting place and engaging the switch to start the flow of water. Is this common? I’m guessing it’s not good for it even if it is. Do I just need to remove the arm and put some sort of lubricant on the parts? Any advice much appreciated! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Thanks, I’ll check this out! Very much appreciated Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Before I go through this whole thread, does anyone have any links to tried & tested methods for sourdough, including developing your starter? Thanks in advance [emoji1317] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Yeh, it is, didn’t realise that til I started making it but a welcome surprise! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I’ve been meaning to find something to do with mine too. Currently just goes in the garden on the plants and have done that for a while now with nothing dying. Did wonder about making a face scrub with it but not tried that yet. Anyone tried to make coffee scented candles with it? Or coffee logs for the fire? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
