  1. Kiss the hippo are running a promo: give 5 get 5: £5 off your order (£15+) and I get £5 off my next order. Link here: https://www.talkable.com/x/ryACOm
  2. These: My first ever Geisha, almost too scared to try..
  3. @catpuccino Head over to the downloads: https://coffeeforums.co.uk/files/ and they are on there. Also check out the Rao method, which I use a fair amount too: https://www.scottrao.com/blog/2018/7/18/advanced-mode-on-the-de1 Note though that we have to 'cheat' a bit. As he works with flow rate. Basically I have one profile of 2 bar, start the machine up, wait for pressure gauge to note puck resistance, depress lever to 45 degree point. Start 30 second timer. Select 6 bar profile and at end of 30 secs lift lever until desired weight reached. Sounds like it

  5. I might want to the white jug and brown handleless one, and potentially a black/white cup of you could provide pictures. Would also need posting please.

  7. Am I reading this right? You have 30 seconds of 2 bar pressure, without any drops? And no over extraction in the cup?
  8. Oh and I believe @Mrboots2u does a similar thing on his Bianca.
  9. @Obnic yes this is what I do with 80% of my shots now. On the V I have profile 2 set as 2 bar. Start shot with that until the bed starts to offer resistance (normally 7-8 seconds). Move lever to 45 degree position. Bloom for 30 seconds. Switch to profile 3 - 6 bar pressure. Pull remaining shot. Total time around 65 seconds. Allows you to grind super fine and pull really nice balanced shots. That said I'm yet to use the filters. You given it a go?
  10. Whilst I do miss the ability to single dose from the HG1 I don't regret changing to the E37s, that would be my recommendation.
  11. The OP would do well to pick up a 2018 onwards e37s for 1000 euro. @CageyH what roast level do you normally drink?
  12. Anyone tried these? https://www.bellabarista.co.uk/brands/limited-release-salt-marsh-brazil-camocim-roast-coffee-250-grams.html?utm_campaign=86929_Last of the Winter batch&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Time Leisure Ltd t%2Fa Bella Barista&dm_i=57CL,1V2P,16YSBP,5SQJ,1 They look a bit too 'faddy' for me to drop fifteen quid. Anyone given them a go?
  13. And how about @Phobic he also disappeared too...
  14. Don't take it personally, @jlarkin is jus larking about...
  15. Pretty sure the Phoenix has the same burr set but cheaper build materials. The traveller is smaller than the other two.
