  1. Thank you! payment received and shipping ASAP. 👍
  2. Excellent - thank you. Go to PM to arrange payment. By way of explanation though, the lip sits inside the basket, pour the ground coffee in through the top of the funnel, then WDT to aerate grinds and flatten surface, remove funnel and tamp 😊👌
  3. This will allow you to accurately adjust the OPV pressure on your Gaggia Classic is similar. Remove the spout on your PF and this attaches in its place. Fit the PF, but brew switch, and read the pressure output. I used regularly on my Gaggia to adjust pressure up and down for different beans etc. A while since I bought this so not sure of value - would £20 posted to UK be useful to anyone?
  4. Selling my norvin funnel. In great condition and perfect for the task as you all know, and makes a massive difference to puck prep and shot quality 30mm and fits 58mm portafilter. £20 posted to UK
  5. How new are the burrs? it probably took 12 months for shots to neaten with my new ek43s - partly due to needing to work to improve my puck preparation and partly the burrs needing to break in. i now grind into an Acaia grind cup, place PF over and invert, shake, remove cup then neaten grinds before gently tamp. i no longer WDT but used to have to religiously before getting the Acaia cup

  7. Now sold and [email protected] has a late drive home for dinner - hoping I supplied enough caffeine for the trip! Look forward to seeing what you make of the QM Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Hello and welcome! As a start on the water point - none of the machines like hard water. Best solution is Either bottled water (Tesco Ashbeck and waitrose lockhills work well apart, better mixed!) or something like the Osmio, which has proven popular with many. From there on, it is hard to recommend a machine and grinder - you need to work out what you want and DO NOT expect you are buying a forever setup...if you like it you will definitely upgrade .... if you don’t, sell it on. Ah that budget, I would but a Niche, and a basic Used original model Gaggia Classic and add in a PID. My exp
  9. Ah, I see. So you set to 5 bar and that read out tells you what is actually being measured / delivered. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. As an aside, what we think that the reading at the top displays? Presumably not puck pressure as I don’t think LR has that capability. My reading has been up to 8+ bar which suggests it is displaying the spring pressure? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Must just before grinding Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I thought the oracle just had that same basic grinder from memory - that’s your upgrade path right there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. [emoji23] Yes we are allowed to keep the ins and out of the rest private! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Absolutely - and happy it sounds like it is to be welcomed into a lever-loving new home! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
