  1. I only use the IMS 35 (Londinium by IMS). So can't comment on 200 in LR, but I was using the 200 with NS Musica and was perfect.

    " Wait for the boiler pressure to come up to working pressure, which is factory set to 1.0 bar. This will take between 3 and 4 minutes on a 240V machine Once up to pressure, the red light will go off. The boiler pressure will slowly fall back to about 0.8 bar, at which point the immersion element will turn back on and raise the boiler pressure back up to 1.0 bar before turning off again" Source: User Manual - Version 1.4
  3. I paid for it: 142 USD (via Paypal) + 140 PLN (VAT and duties). Which gives us around 145 GBP. I need to give you 12% discount as I opened the grinder to test it, which makes the final price: 127 GBP. Shipment will be 13 GBP. Total 140 GBP.
  4. If you are interested I have almost new 1zpresso JE. You can read the review here of JX version - https://coffeechronicler.com/1zpresso-jx-review/. I ordered the JE, as it has better burrset in my opinion (Itallmill, carbon steal with TiN vs Stainless steel). I grounded about 50 grams of coffee. Because I will be using the grinder only for espresso, I want to replace it with newly announce JE-Plus. Before I was using Comandante C40 mk3, this is much better to my surprise.
  5. OK, thanks. If you change your mind let us know here. I just sold my grinder, so I am ready to buy at your last asking price.
  6. Hi Aphelion, if you can offer 25% discount from retail price 219 EUR (which gives 165 EUR or 150 GBP) I will take it.

    They need to look for some big apartments if they want to be together. Something like this: https://www.booking.com/hotel/pl/in-apart-cracow-old-town-zyblikiewicza.pl.html?label=gen173nr-1FCAEoggI46AdIHlgEaLYBiAEBmAEeuAEXyAEM2AEB6AEB-AECiAIBqAIDuAL-7rfkBcACAQ;sid=d81ca205b4aa2da9e276d69fae4ccf4f;all_sr_blocks=289157301_147693019_0_0_0;checkin=2019-08-01;checkout=2019-08-05;dest_id=-510625;dest_type=city;dist=0;group_adults=11;group_children=0;hapos=1;highlighted_blocks=289157301_147693019_0_0_0;hpos=1;no_rooms=1;req_adults=11;req_children=0;room1=A%2CA%2CA%2CA%2CA%2CA%2CA%2CA%2CA%2CA%2CA;sb_price_type=total;sr_order=popularity;srepoch=1552807837;srpvid=42cc34cef88800a5;type=total;ucfs=1hotelTmpl Taxis in Poland are cheap, Krakow is not very big city, so as long as it within city it should be OK. Of course, the best would be in the Old Town, as most of the interesting things will be within walking distance. Crakow is pretty busy in August, so better to book in advance if the party is conformed.
  8. @mark8805 - thanks so much. The grinder was in perfect condition, prepared very well for shipment. I changed the burrs to the steel ones (which were part of the set), as I use the Forte for pour-over. I am very happy, this is really amazing grinder, for brew coffee this is much better that my Commandante C40.
  9. Thanks @DavecUK, very informative. I follow most of your recommendation, except the Milton washing, I am guilty of just using the regular dish-washing detergent. I see the Milton is antibacterial solution and can be bought as a spray, tablets, gel. So I believe you recommend the tablets, 1/2 of the tablet put into 2,5 liters of water and then leave in switched off machine for 15-20 minutes, rinse, and we are good to go?
  10. Niche is designed to be used with the cup. Even in very expensive machine like new Caedo SD, they use the cup. It is there to eliminate the static, help with distribution (by stirring or shaking). It is hard to believe that grinding directly into PF can give you decent results. But on the other hand few users reported they use it with success, so who knows. But I am sure you will be happy with Tidaka funnel, even if you use it as I was using it, to do WDT after I moved coffee from the cup to PF.
  11. Yes, the longer the preinfussion, the longer shot you can have.
  12. Yes, unfortunately it is quite expensive : 13 GBP by DPD.
