  2. 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 yo
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. I keep Evs set to 0. I don't do steam pre infusion only bloom pre infusion
  11. Yes when it stopped it refilled about 45 seconds, and at first I didn't wait steam boiler to come up to temperature, I tried to draw water but I realized it was coming from brew boiler at that time, then I waited steam boiler to come up to temp and then draw fully again. Maybe the reason I use hot water tap from machine sometimes to make americanos. Half of the time from brew boiler (as machine was in eco mode) half of the time when steam was on.
  12. My osmio gives around 20ppm TDS I add bicarbonate of soda to bring it up to 100ppm to feed Lelit. Today I replaced the water in steam boiler via getting water out from hot water tap fully twice and first draw cooled down result was 125ppm tds from boiler. And it tasted same as from osmio (like no weird taste or smell)maybe even slightly sweeter. Haven't done this before. Is that normal/acceptable result?
  13. @CocoLoco If you decide not to use it with hopper and looking sth smaller instead, i still have a foot long acrylic tube which i used for my Mazzer major previously (assuming they have same diameter throat), i can send it to you when the time comes just pay postage. You can hacksaw the length for your needs.
  14. For me it never changes. I stick a tape on the silver funnel with a dot on it marked with a pen same line with adjustment dot. So i know that after cleaning it doesnt change, or if someone else moves the black ring by mistake i can put it back where it should be without need of recalibrating. https://coffeeforums.co.uk/topic/42929-the-niche-zero-user-experience/?do=findComment&comment=738255
  15. Same here. Wouldn't swap them for anything else.
