  1. I held onto a crappy delonghi machine and kg79 grinder for under a month im pretty sure. This was when i was a broke student too
  2. I might get called out for blasphemy here but as a beginner, the likelihood is that you may not detect a difference. This isn't to say that extraction isn't improved because it certainly is. It is just most likely the case that all the other variables you are trying to balance and flavours you are trying to pick through to diagnose any potential issues with your shots will overshadow the improvements. That said, if you have the £30 odd to spare, it is probably worth the upgrade, even if the effects aren't immediately perceptible. You will at least be removing a limiting factor which will beco
  3. Probably a Eureka mignon or a second hand commercial grinder like a mazer mini or super jolly
  4. I have had the same thoughts quite a lot around upgrading from the second hand Expobar I picked up ~4 years ago. My thinking around it is basically come down to the following: provided I a) dont want to 'downgrade' to a HX and lose my PID b ) look after it and it continues to work perfectly well as a pretty standard run of the mill dual boiler E61 machine (havent seen all of these issues you mentioned so please enlighten me if there are things to look out for!!) then if I were to choose to upgrade, the only thing that is a true upgrade and sits in a reasonable price bracket for me is a Bi
  5. That's really surprising, i would expect most of the variability to come from human error which the oracle removes basically all of - kind of its selling point. If I'm remembering correctly it does have a fairly crappy burr set which might negate this but still

  7. I used to have the Lelit PL41TEM before Lelit was cool. Banging little machine and I'd definitely recommend Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk

  9. Hi all, Dont suppose anyone has any experience with the f10 or similar and knows any solutions to its clumping. It definitely isn't the worst i have dealt with but every little helps. Cheers Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk

  11. Burrs need to be made from fairly high carbon steel so are rarely truly stainless unfortunately. Usually you can run some easy cook rice through to pull oils/gummy grinds out. Also it is quite easy to wind the burrs the whole way out for cleaning.
  12. Back Story: I was expecting quite a downgrade from my old Aergrind - replaced because WFH is now normality so i don't need a high end travelling kit really. Doesn't feel like a direct downgrade, just more plasticy Early impressions: Capacity is good (maybe 20-25g) - not the 30g they advertise but that was always going to be an 'up to' with some tiny dense African bean I guess. No bearings which i thought would be a downgrade from a stability and smoothness perspective but the housing for the shaft that holds the burr is a good tight fit so i don't see this being a huge issue and it i
  13. Well mine arrived today and I am pleasantly surprised
  14. Haha! The cupboard was from Wayfair, worth noting though that it has a bit of lateral wobble to it. I have added some reinforcement brackets in the corners so should be safe but i guess it is just by virtue of the fact that other than the top panel which is real, it is mostly made of that cheap chipboard and it is holding quite a bit of weight Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk
