  1. Hey Coffee friends

    I just decale my Quick Mill V2B, but the brew manometer behave strange, and keep hold the presure?  so i remove and descale the "no return" Inlet valve, just like Clevecoffee's gude here https://clivecoffee.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000333734-Quick-Mill-LUCCA-M58-Vetrano-2B-Cleaning-Inlet-Check-Valve

    But its was not successful, here is a video

    I still guess this is may be the "no return" Inlet valve or do I miss some thing?

    Sorry Jack I'm not sure what you mean? Are you saying you prefer the ECM Synchronika?

    No, what I 'm saying is the steam power is better in both Profitec 700 and ECM Synchronika, than other similar e61 machines in the marked, the spec are very much the same in both machines.

    Other e61 machines in the marked have 1L to 1,4L steam boiler, with about 1,5 bar for max, some lower

    In order for you to pay no VAT on a purchase made abroad, you have to qualify it. For example, at Elektros I buy something bound for the UK. In the UK, I am VAT registered, so I give Elektros my VAT number and after checking, they deduct the VAT from the purchase and then VAT is charged by the UK when it comes into the country. It is still not clear how it works for individuals who are not VAT registered. In the case of the Norwegian buyer, he still pays VAT......to Norway

    Yes yes I know, it was the rules until 31 December 2020, now the UK is completely out in the EU and out of the VAT. cooperation that was valid until 31 December 2020.

    So now all UK orders from UK is with no VAT, and you will pay the  VAT to your own country when you import, if you have  VAT number you dont need to pay (I think also in UK) but if you are private you need to pay, thats why you dont pay Vat to Italy when you are overseas customer, exatly like Norway, Hong Kong, USA ordre is from the EU, will EU company not charge the EU VAT for overseas customers

    The Illubabor is with new info. Fazenda has the old info. 

     

    I don't think, I believe La Cabra tailor made info for each bean, maybe we need to ask them directly to find out

    In October 2014, I ordered a brand new HG One with the 83mm TiN burrs, and it has been my main grinder at home for 6 years now.  I probably drink about 500g-1kg per month.  It's fair to say it must surely be seasoned by now :)

    For some reason, I am a guy who likes a manual process.  I like to develop film.  I shave with old-fashioned double-edge razors, a brush and soap.  I used to like the ritual of placing an LP on a turntable.  I have never owned an electric grinder.

    Or should I finally go electric and get a Niche?

    Or upgrade your HG-One  🥳

    Yeah, I have seen that. On the boxes the info is still 21 days for espresso.

     

    I should get a batch later this week. These I will start using straight away.

    Out of interest no resting after the shipping time which isn’t that long to Sweden. 
     

    I have always liked La Cabra coffees. Light and bright. 
     

    I only brew espresso and I have a feeling that the La Cabra beans will give more as a filter brew.


    I just received new coffee from La Cabra 🥰  looks intresting, the date on La Cabras coffee seems to be tailored to the individual beans 😉 I will still keep my standart and start use for espresso on 6 day after roast

    Also only mostly espresso here, I also like La Cabra, but its depends on which beans there have

    They still have 21 days on the stickers. 

    I saved a unopened bag for four weeks and it was a disappointing experience. 

    As you said their coffees peak at 6-7 days. I have been subscribing their beans  for a while and will cancel it soon. Next months Columbia’s might be the last ones.

    I freeze beans earlier in original bags and wasn’t really satisfied with the results. I will try something else in near future.

    Then I think they do not update there whole website completly
    Try look inside example here 14 days 😉 https://www.lacabra.dk/products/los-pirineos-semi-carbonic-maceration-petites

    Hi guys 

    I've noticed that a few of the top shelf (price wise) have got rpm controls on them with around 1200 range of rpm. 

    Now I have only seen one person say anything about them (the Ceado's hero)which of course was mark from wll a d as it was being shown by a sales man I took it with a pinch of salt it also didn't get the warmest reception here at time of release if I remember correctly. 

    Now you can buy with out the rpm box £900 cheaper under the name naked I think. 

    So is there any user that has an rpm machine that Could shed a little light on its usefulness on their grinder and how they use it? 

    Thanks 

    TT

    I am happy for 600 rpm on my Lynweber EG-1

    That was the vibration tool, the baking powder showed that one worked quite well. He did a video about a cheap distribution tool from China (£13) and said it was good. A video below shows them working in a clear basket. As Mrboot2U says they give a nice groomed puck before using a tamper which makes tamping easier/better.

    I use one as a security blanket, as it helps consistency and because so many baristas do. Someone more experienced/better at tamping may not feel the need.

    Agree with this ^^^^^^

    I commented on a three vane distributor in an old  DavecUk thread.

    Tail end of my post below.

    I didn't post photos at the time but here are a couple indicating just how little movement of grinds there appears to be.

    Try compare with The Jack from Asso, the org OCD and all the China ocd leveler have very large food print almost like they tampe 60% when you inset it 😉 

     Asso The jack is much better 😉

    It means spending £185, that's quite a lot... Especially as I don't need one  so I'm conflicted. 

    Same here, I have been looking this milk steamers for long time.. so here is my 2 cents 

    I will guess (we don't know for sure) WPM use same technology in there Thermo-block Espresso Machine https://www.wpm.hk/en/products_detail.php?id=310  they use in there Milk Steamers MS-130D / MS-130T https://www.wpm.hk/en/products.php?c1id=91 

    I think and guess (again dont know) dualit cino milk steamer is same product (OEM)  https://www.dualit.com/products/cino 

    If all same maybe its will steam like this WPM KD-310 

    200 ml milk 35 second to reach 53 degrees and it absorbs 15 grams of water as the milk weighs 215 grams after steam


    The Decent DE1 XL use about same time for milk steamning, I think Decents DE1 XL milk Thermo-block is more powerfull, but again I am not sure.. not much data and test out there for this Thermo-block steamers 

     

  13. Update.. 
    I did not try to come to a conclusion from the beginning in this thread, because the seller of the grinder followed the thread here and he has now taken the grinder back. 🏁

    My conclusion is it's not worth to repair the grinder, cause the threads are too worn for its posible to align the burr's 

    Thank you all for your help 😃
