  1. All good here thanks - must say like you work gets in the way of stuff at times. I’m sure when it eases off for you you’ll nail it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. They’re great [emoji1303]. And thanks for the suggestion - that could solve a few Xmas present problems. Tim Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Hi I’m in Sidmouth, Devon so probably a step too far, but if not you’d be very welcome. Cheers Tim Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. You’re right - that’s definitely a long way - you’re welcome to have a go with my Mara but I can see that Sidmouth will be a step too far! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I have the Rocket naked from BB. As has been said it matches the black and chrome knobs and doesn’t have Rocket branding. Nice piece of kit Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Where do you live? May be an owner close by Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I’ve got the Mara and it’s perfect for me. There’s a great review on it here - or at least a link to the review - [email protected] It works for me because it came in at the right price point, was well regarded, seemed like a good upgrade from my Classic and its very compact so ideal for my modest kitchen. The advice to go to Bella Barista though is very good. The staff there are great and once you’ve pulled a couple of shots and talked through what you want you’ll be in a good place to decide. In addition to the great BB customer service and warranty they’ll also give you discount on any accessories you buy with your new toy. The new mignon should work just fine paired with either machine. Let us know what you end up going for and how you like it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks for the [email protected] - I’d been looking for it without success. @MWJB Mark, as always thanks for the info and knowledge - much appreciated. How concerned should we be about the respective levels of dry residue as shown on labels? Does a higher amount at the given temperature mean more scaling? I think from memory Lockhills is a higher figure than Ashbeck. Although I always use Lockhills or Volvic in the Mara I’m still tempted to use water from the Brita jug as a way of reducing plastic waste, but never do. Out of interest what’s the best way/kit to test the jug water to compare the results against bottled? Cheers Tim Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I can’t believe this thread hasn’t been deleted yet. I’m not saying the subject isn’t a valid one to discuss, maybe, but seriously...I don’t think a forum like this is a helpful place to have the discussion. And all the terms that have been thrown about that people wouldn’t use if the discussion was taking place in a pub - terms that are used in a racist or homophobic way - or people being too gay or too camp or whatever. Maybe people feel that so long as they don’t belong to any of those groups, or haven’t been at the receiving end of abuse or stigma, it’s a reasonable conversation to have. But regardless of whatever transphobic, homophobic Dave Chapelle thinks, how about just letting people get on with their lives without judging them by our own standards and avoid using words and descriptions that, unless you’ve been asleep for the last 40 years, we all know are hurtful, derogatory, racist and just plain wrong.

  10. That’s my go-to too if I’m in a hotel and trying to travel light so left the aeropress at home Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I have 2 clevers bought at different times - one for work and the other for home. One came with a coaster and the other didn’t. The seal works so well I’ve never actually used the coaster when I’ve removed the clever from the cup, but if I needed to and didn’t have one, a saucer would definitely do the trick.

  12. Hi - welcome to the forum. I like the organic distribution tool Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Hi [emoji112] Yes will definitely fit. Cheers Tim Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Total pleasure doing business with you too! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Glad it all arrived safe and sound and you’re having fun with it already. You’re going to be so popular when you start steaming milk at work! That should be all your bubble wrap needs sorted for Christmas too Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
