I've just joined and can feel the slippery slope of upgrades already.
I was gifted a Krups XP5620 Espresso Machine and Krups GVX2 grinder as a wedding present last year and I've been doing my best to experiment and make it as good as possible. However, I'm acutely aware of it's limitations, the Krups tamping system for example and will no doubt be looking for the next step up soon.
Have tried a variety of beans, favourites include Union - Revelation, Allpress - Redchurch blend and various single origins from Monmouth.
Look forward to contributing more in the future
