  1. Hi - sorry, yes - paid for and should be arriving with me tomorrow. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Yes please. Posted to Bristol? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I had a whole thread on Taste Buddy for iPhone, which I found brilliant and still use regularly Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Glad you are happy and hope it helps with the coffees. I loved that tamper and after a while I really noticed that the curved base was helping me learn to tamp vertical and evenly as you can really feel off-axis movements. [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Bringing this back on track a little bit, this morning’s shots have been superb - almost strangely so! I have had no problems getting sweet, clean and balanced flavours from the EK, but it is less common to get strong tasting and heavier body. Recipe fairly fixed at 15:45 over 20-30s (time depending on Lord knows what!!) now I have found some magic this morning! Anecdotally, I have noticed that shots with a slow and even PI followed by a faster pull are the best...that is just a very hard thing to achieve! Sometimes I notice that the pull flows evenly without any observable channelling and forms the shape of quite a large aerated cone of espresso flowing from the basket. These are the god shots and I just need to produce them more often Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. That is astonishing - it is like Hoffman doing a voiceover for a child [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks - and no problems. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. [email protected] - did you get my PM? [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Haha - fair point - I probably should have checked my calendar more closely [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. This sounds an interesting learning exercise. Especially as you can watch the video in your own time, for those of us that have to be at work at 3.00 pm [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Yes please - happy with that. Sorry for slow reply - was just checking postage insurance costs. I’ll send you a PM to sort out. It’s a beautiful feeling tamper. Hope you enjoy using it. [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Excellent used condition as per photos. I will upload a video to show the condition of the base. Looking for £65 posted to UK. Rob Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. No, it is definitely helpful to read your comments, so thank you as ever. I’m not trying to artificially reach some arbitrary 30s mark, but possibly am still slightly wedded to the idea of PI being a good thing, so I need to adjust prep to make sure I can allow time for PI. I like that my lever is largely a fixed variable, so the grinder and prep are the bits to focus on. I have to admit i haven’t blind tasted a gorilla tamp long PI shot against a light time short PI one. I will put that on my learning list. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. One more thing....I have found me needing to tamp hard with this grinder to offer sufficient puck resistance at the right grind size. Does anyone else notice this? No longer “grind fine tamp light” with my lever!
