  2. I think so. Wouldn’t want to use mine everyday but the mini is great for travel and work Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks for the heads up. I’d have missed it hidden as it was amongst the daily spam Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Am I mad

    I think this is good advice. Getting a good used Classic, especially one that has a PID, is a terrific route in, especially paired with a Mignon. I used a classic for about a year I think before I moved to the Lara. When I did, it was because I’d enjoyed the experience and wanted to move it up a notch. When I sold the classic I let it go at a reasonable price because I needed the room and probably lost £40. If I’d not needed the space I could probably have reduced the loss to £20. £20 - £40 for a hobby that I enjoyed for 6-12 months before I bought the Lara is great value.

  5. Hi. This may help http:// Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Totally agree with everything here. If it were spring it could be a different matter. And occasionally on a mild day in the winter a bike commute can be a joy. But to depend on it for a regular commute in the winter - definitely not something I’d want to do and the advice to get the A1 licence is spot on. And then see what’s going for a good price second hand. I may be biased but the old versys is a great workhorse and you can pick them up very cheap. Likewise an er6. And if sticking with A2 - the CB500x or the NC700 (restricted) are good rides. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Condensed milk is great in espresso but like you I’d be huge if I go down that road. And you’re right, the liquid creamers in the states are also addictive - probably as a result of all the chemicals in them. I wouldn’t waste any of the coffee I drink here using them but when I’m in the US French Vanilla creamer is my go to for making drip coffee slightly more palatable. Next time I’ll just go for double cream Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I’ll give it a go. [email protected] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. And you just stir it in? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Now your [email protected] I lived in Gran Canaria for 6 months and developed quite a cortado with condensed milk habit. Delicious. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Haha - I have a guilty pleasure which is an Azera with milk on the afternoon! Can’t believe I’m saying it. But it’s true. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I’ll give it a go then. Thanks. I didn’t know if the idea was that you were supposed to leave a cream layer floating on the top Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. That’s an interesting option I hadn’t considered as part of a low carb routine! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Is she a stirrer? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
