  1. I’d love to try the sweet bourbon espresso, could I get a discount code please. Many thanks.
  2. Hey all, I'm planning on giving bottled water a try in my sage espresso machine for a couple of months. My question is, should I leave the built in water filter in place or is it redundant when using bottled water. I plan on using either ashbeck or volvic. Cheers.
  3. Ahhh, I didn't realise the darker roast could make such a difference. Cheers.
  4. I cleaned the shower screen at the weekend, part of my weekly cleaning schedule now. I am trying new beans which are a darker roast than what I'd normally go for, should have said that in my first post sorry.
  5. Hey Joey, thanks for the reply. I left it for at least 30 seconds and this was the result on the shower screen.
  6. Hey all, Recently every shot I make when I release the portafilter there is a pop and some ground coffee/sludge spills over the portafilter and there are loads of grounds stuck to the showerscreen. I'm only dosing 16 grams, the only thing I can think of is that the beans are quite fresh 5-day post roast. Anyone else have this issue?
  7. I cleaned mine today for the first time in far too long. Wow I did not realise how much dirt could gather under the shower screen, it was disgusting and a big build up on one side more than the other. I had to use a wooden chopstick to pry it off but I am so glad I did now after seeing what was behind it. This will definitely be a regular part of my cleaning now.
  8. I have the same issue with the basket sticking from time to time. Not sure what causes it, I'm running at a 16gram dose.
  9. Awesome, they look great! Good job.
  10. I was, but now you mention it, if you're not going to get much use out of yours and to ur happy to let it go, I'd definitely be interested. Let me know what price you're thinking and I'll get back to you.
  11. Sorry are you talking about a portafilter or tamper?
  12. Sounds good, I'll PM you for details.
  13. If you're still making them and it's not too much trouble I'd definitely be up for buying one from you, they look nice.
  14. Just saw joey's thread about selling a spare custom tamper for the sage and got me thinking, is it worth upgrading to a motta (or other recommendations) tamper, the supplied one with the sage doesn't seem the best fit.
  15. Recipe from video (see end of video): Rinse filter Add 22g coffee Add 60/70g water Stir gently Wait 30 seconds (around 45 seconds total time.) Add 300g water Stir once around the top gently @1:45 Shake/Swirl V60 2-3 times Drain Enjoy
