  2. You can order these from RS. I've bought and used the same. https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/seals-o-rings/5279756/ and these ones for the probes: https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/seals-o-rings/5279784/
  3. Check this out. Lot of helpful info. https://outwestcoffee.com.au/index.php/category/breville-coffee-machine-repair-diy/ When I got mine the pump was really weak, made a lot of gurgling noises. Changed the pump and all of the o rings and it is fine now.
  4. Hey, very small world indeed ! I live down in the Mount, been over here for just over a year. Really a beautiful spot! Lockdown with 2 beaches under a 5 minute walk made a terrible time, really quite bearable. Wairere Falls didn't look like that a few weeks ago when I was last there, completely covered in cloud and couldn't see anything, irritatingly it cleared on the way down. Does anybody here have any recommendations for roasters over here? I'm slowly working my way through several, but really missing the light roasts I used to get in the UK.
  5. Hi, How much will you want for this in NZD posted to Tauranga, please?
  6. Hi, there is a big thread on HomeBarista, which should hopefully help you out https://www.home-barista.com/espresso-machines/breville-dual-boiler-fixing-leaks-and-other-maintenance-t62505.html, I got some 007 o rings for mine as a back up for when they leak, but haven't used them yet and think the big probes are 010 size.
  7. Hi, many thanks for taking the time to put this together. Please move if you want this posted elsewhere, I'm wondering what you guys would recommend if water has a high silica content ~40ppm and for use in espresso machine, giving how grim some shower doors look around here, I'm wanting to be careful with my new machine. The hardness here is really low 7.8 and alkalinity is 14ppm. Ignoring the silica, I think I'm going to have to remineralise according to the water calculator, just trying to get my head around it. Here are some of the values for my water, I got the silica value from a co
  8. That looks exactly as mine does with 30 grams.
  9. I can get 30g in mine, had couple beans where that's a bit of a push but always managed fine.
  10. I've found that the shots actually run a little quicker when doing it this way, although if you felt temperature was the issue can always adjust that higher or lower if on the standard setting.
  11. I actually got mine from Amazon US and delivered to me in New Zealand, so can't unfortunately comment on that side of things. When I contacted 1Zpresso while deciding which model, they were very helpful. I think with import duty, I always factor in that it will need paying and if it somehow slips through the net, you get a nice little bonus. I spent a long time looking as knew I wanted to upgrade, but spending a decent amount of cash on a hand grinder, more than my used Eureka 65mm seemed counter intuitive, but I'm so glad that I did. Mine has been used at least twice a day for the past 6 mont
  12. I can't compare the Wilfa, but have had some nice brews at a friends house who has one. I went from a Porlex to a JX and couldn't believe the improvement, can't realistically see any reason to use it again, even when travelling. Grinding is a doddle, our morning 30g dose for v60 takes about 30s and my partner can now grind her own coffee to take to work with ease, whereas could never get enough grip/strength with the Porlex. I'm really, really impressed with my JX, is a really nice thing to own and use. I've been using mine for 6 months and still have no criticism of it.
  13. Have you tried pulling the shots at the preinfusion pressure? I do all of mine like this, just press the button and keep it pressed. Works for me.
  14. I bought the standard JX, a little more than £100 but I am incredibly impressed with it. The difference in pour over to the Porlex it replaced was enormous. I've found I have used it quite a lot for espresso over my Sette 270, which I never initially intended, mine has the older adjustment dial with 24 clicks whereas I believe the newer one has 30 so should be able to get dialled in a bit better. It takes 30g of light roasted beans and grinding that for v60 takes around 30 seconds and is incredibly easy, my parter can easily hand grind with it, whereas she could never turn the handle on the Po
  15. This is a really awesome effort. Something I will have to look into playing with in the future.
