  1. One from me, and one from my dad who’s just starting out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. You should have to earn five likes rather than make five posts... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. For anyone interested, I just found that you can pick up Roundhill Roastery coffee from the farmers market in Green Park Station every Saturday. Only £5 or £6 a bag. Good selection as well. Bargain!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I think they’re just referring to the black adjustment ring which clicks when moved. The main hopper does not click of course. Calibration isn’t mandatory, but it helps you at least compare to what others are doing, and reduce the risk of you ever over tightening the settings. I’m at 15-18 for most things. But that’s for a 15g dose on a 15g VST basket. I’d be in the low 20s for the 21g basket for example. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. This all sounds normal to me. The boiler on/off cycle will get longer after it’s been on a while - A while ago I invested in a group thermometer and recorded it all. See link below.

  6. Both blends had roasty notes to me interestingly. Not in a bad way, but noticeable. I put it down to being a blend They were on LSOL a while back. Maybe see what people said. If it was the same machine of course! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Dropped by this place on my festive break. Nice shop selling tea, cakes and others bits as well as coffee of course. They had two blends on only. Both were pretty good, but I’d have preferred a single origin - so I picked up a bag.... at £16 it better be good!!! Nice set up, and branding. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Alas the first proper coffee being made for me by my dad!!! The Sage DTP is an interesting product with some lovely user friendly touches. The first thing we did is try Dads Bodum Barista to prove it’s shite. That was easy enough. First shot in about 15s on the finest setting. Next we dialled in my Lido E while churning out six coffees for impatient and unreasonable members of the family. Things I noted: Steaming quality is great, if slow. The 10min auto shut off is annoying. The extraction seems good, in that it ramps up slowly. The hidden tool tray and water tank with filter are great ideas. The coffee tasted perfectly fine. I wouldn’t be disappointed if I’d have made it on my own machine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. It’s so easy... It’s BMW M5 (E61 Estate) And the head of a grouper E61 Group Head. Totally obvious. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. It’s not a mullet.... and it’s just the head (clue) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Merry Christmas everyone! I finally got my dad to add a proper starter machine to his wish list.... amongst alcohol and chocolate of course! Hopefully we’ll both be posting about this soon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I’ll give you a clue... it’s ‘legend’ary Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Give up yet...? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Good luck! Not easy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
