  1. Thanks, No didnt use the machine since we came back, washed the supply pitcher throughly and now i am in the middle of sterilizing process.
  2. Yes after seeing the algea growth on sediment filter in water tank i will replace all filters after cleaning and sanitization. We had to leave urgently for a funeral abroad didnt think about emptying the machine that time. Even if i did think, didnt have time for it. Next time i will empty internal tank also before i leave.
  3. Can 9 months old filters be still used after sterilizing the unit? We were away for more than 2 months, i have left the machine as is with water in it. I know current filters still have plenty of life in them just wondering if bacteria grew in filters after 2.5 months? Or should i just use new pack of filters after sterilizing.
  4. Everyone bought their Osmios already or what 😂 These group buys used to grab loads of attention.
  5. Hi all, i am a happy user of Osmio Zero since almost a year and a mate of mine is interested in one too. Just wanted to see if we can gather 4 more people to benefit from the group buy offer. Information can be found in the link below. Thanks

  7. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07XQ33N13/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glc_fabc_M43PG75F97R665XWA9DK Same as the one I have. It's magnetic, sits on the rim, cheap and cheerful, delivered today if you have prime it's not tall tho, so if you thinking grind directly into portafilter you might need something taller otherwise it still makes a mess As a dosing cup,if I didn't have niche I would have bought one of these. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08D3LVVQ1/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glc_fabc_QKD11C76B95NN2XG1HFZ?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 But to be honest if you get one of these dosing cups you won't need a dosing ring. And for tamper I use https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08JD3PPGC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_imm_CB8D12XNYQ3ZZEZD85HX But they don't seem to sell it on Amazon UK anymore.
  8. https://www.normcorewares.com/collections/coffee-tamper/products/normcore-58-5mm-spring-loaded-tamper-upgrate-v3 Now they have V3 mine is V2 i think they sorted that issue with adding another spring in tamper you can see it on the link above, second video.
  9. i am very happy with it beautiful pours each time, i use it with leveller tho, to me; springs are a bit of gimmick really, i use the lightest rated one and i stop tamping each time when i feel grounds are fully compressed so it does not matter how hard springs are. I do not understand the logic behind different springs anyway when you have that ring which sits on basket. By the way you might need to undo the base every two weeks or so to clean coffee grounds behind it as they tend to accumulate there. Enjoy!
  10. I have this tamper and can confirm it is really snug fit to a VST basket make sure you keep edges clean otherwise it gets slightly stuck in the basket.
  11. I am recently having this issue as well. Decaf, caf doesnt matter, have always grinds stuck at the bottom of the grinds cup. Which needs a good few bashings on the worktop to get them. Thought it might be the humidity levels around this time of the year but it is around %40-%55 which is pretty average. Only thing i started to freeze beans recently and use them from freezer, not immediately but get about 100gr out from a night before and keep them in a sealed bag or single dose jars. Do you freeze your beans as well?
  12. For filling pans, especially if you use 2-3 kettle boil worth, osmio would be way too slow, it's perfect for tea and coffee though.
  13. If you keep the original tank quarter or so full in the machine and keep an eye on the external one and keep it topped up all the time(well, most of the time 😀), I don't see why not. Obviously metal lid won't close properly as pipes would be hanging out from side.
  14. If you smell and taste overroasted coffee then it is coffee, not the grinder I think. Just drop them an email with some pictures and ask. They have great customer service, you probably know.
  15. I keep Evs set to 0. I don't do steam pre infusion only bloom pre infusion
