  1. I thought that was what you meant. Great I'll take it.
  2. Are these being sold together or separate @coffeechap? Either way I would like the 49.5 one
  3. Even had the blue rubber base
  4. I agree with Jim, buy secondhand and save yourself a load of money. They come up on the forum every once in a while and there are loads of them on eBay.
  5. I used a La Cimbali Magnum before the Niche so large ex commercial flat burr. The taste in the cup is slightly different but I wouldn’t say one is significantly better than the other. The big advantages of the Niche are workflow and size. My only slight gripe is the red light on the side so I feel the need to pull the plug out each time other than that I can’t really fault it. As I prefer light roast I would like another large flat grinder but I think single dosing is well suited to home use. My concern with the Ceado or Mythos is retention so the next step up is a significantly priced one with the EK. I’m not sure there is the perfect grinder for home use but for the money I can’t see any better than the Niche
  6. I’m thinking of getting a better fitting tamper to my Motta 49mm. I’ve seen this one on eBay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Palm-Espresso-Tamper-polished-aluminum-Base-49-5-or-51-5-mm-La-Pavoni-Cremina/202618894037?var=502696248811 but does it make much difference having a more precise fit and has anyone else got one they can recommend or recommend a good place to get one?

    Result that was one with not much info but the tasting notes sounded pretty good.

    I've just ordered the GITWE Lot 921 and Misspent Youth. If anyone knows anyone at Cartwheel let them know most of their links on the coffee page aren't working so you can't get any info on the coffee they're selling.
  9. I use the funnel from an Aeropress, grind into the Niche tumbler put the funnel into the portafilter and tip it in. Not perfect as it's narrower than the portafilter but best solution I've found so far.

    Increasing the temperature and grinding finer has definitely helped. I'll try to increase output on the next shot.

    I've never really played about with long preinfusions but worth a go. I have the microcasa basket which is larger than the Pavoni. I haven't come across the Strietmann one.

    This one is a pre mil with a larger basket so I can get up to 15g in. Never been a big fan of the Felini method as I think it creates channeling but I'll give it a go. I think I just don't like this coffee as espresso so maybe I'll end up using the rest with the Aeropress. Always the risk when buying a kilo at a time.

    With this one I'm either overextracting or underextracting it. Could probably do with a larger output but if I reduce the amount I'm putting in the portafilter it's channeling. Currently putting 15g in getting 31-32g out

    Maybe it's me but I find certain coffees are more suited to the Pavoni than others. Foundry maybe because of the omni roast suit my taste and the machine although I've always struggled with their Rocko Mountain. I currently have a kilo from Horsham so also omni roast but I'm really struggling with it.

    @Rob1 have you tried any of them with your Pavoni? With free shipping they're definitely worth trying out.
