  1. This has been done - dog and hat etc so there’s a market for it. Problem I had with it was timing - I’d be continually updating my subscription based on whether I had coffee left over each month or ran out early. Good luck with it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. 2 double shots per week - spaced out as much as I can. We’re all different eh - I’m caffeine sensitive and can feel the difference in sleep even the day after. Rest is decaf Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Guy and the team seem to be running both decadent and just decaf these days then - would have thought there’s lots of overlap Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Super, thanks @davecuk, makes sense Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. With the disk attached to my niche I can clearly see the gap between the edge of the disk and the chrome surround of the grinder is not uniformly even - i.e. as it spins it wobbles. Before fitting the disk I could see this on the top bolt also though it’s easier to see now the disk is fitted. It’s been explained before - though could someone remind me why this isn’t a problem and does not necessarily equate to a wobbly burr also? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. [email protected] for the disk - can’t wait to try our in the morn. I’m going to guess the Kenyan I have at 13 should be dialled to 11 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The fact that brew temp doesn’t drop right off after 45 seconds or so shows this is no ordinary HX. Intrigued Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. For some the quality proposition is compelling though eh? I’ve owned an ecm and a Vesuvius and although the latter was functionally superior, the ownership experience of the ecm was better...... the way it looked, the weight of the controls, the sense of solidity and over engineering....... a joy to own Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I love what they’ve done here - avoiding pid good idea as doesn’t give owners the idea pid is some sort of accurate temp control like on single/dual boilers. 3 settings - simple, and can be fine tuned with a flush like any hx For me main driver here is the size, dual boiler would not be able to achieve this so for some - including me - would choose it over dB Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Looks like old thermoblock gets heated as soon as machine gets power hence few mins heat up time - and thermojet only heats at shot pull time hence the flow sensitivity. Can’t be sure but that’s what we’re assuming and behaviour shows anecdotal evidence of this. As Tom says is great for 3 second availability though temp problems if flow doesn’t equate to roughly double shot over 35 seconds. I’ve been able to work around it though it’s not ideal - maybe I’ll go back to a boiler machine at some point, I just loath to sit and heat a vessel of water for one shot every other day.

  11. This is very interesting - the disk could be a step up for the niche in terms of taste in the cup. If I had any criticism it would be how taste can be flattened. The finer grinding required with the disk plus the better particle distribution might create quite a difference, especially with light roasts.... cue the next round of Niche hysteria and love Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Tried Fika North in headingley last week - was excellent, really good. They have North Star and cast espresso beans and another I can’t remember. I had Kenyan as americano as they said they didn’t have time to do a pour over as I went at a peak time. Tasted amazing Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Have some Brazil fezenda from justdecaf and is one of the best decafs I’ve had - really nice. 18 in, 30 out which is my decaf standard now - very sweet and just how you’d want a Brazilian in terms of notes I will trying others Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Can you show us a video? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Maybe that’s how it should be done then - I just assumed the instructions in the manual were for the disc with hole in, hence the instruction to put container under group Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
