  1. Thanks for this, good to know about these if I dig the Square Mile offering... nearly half the price of the Square Mile ones so a fair bit cheaper too! The lot Quarterhouse are offering went for $25 a pound and the one Square Mile is offering went for $66.50 a pound so understandable that it's almost twice the price I suppose. https://auction.allianceforcoffeeexcellence.org/en/lots/auction/2020-qima-private-collection-auction How is the Quarterhouse?
  2. I'm really enjoying it in @V60. Pretty much a @christos_geo recipe from a while back. 2 on my Feld. 13.5g/225g Pour 25g to bloom, leave for 45 seconds 45: take up to 100g over 15 seconds with slow outward spirals 60: allow to drain for 15 seconds 75: take up to 225g over 15 seconds with outward spiral til you get to around 150/160g then pour the rest straight down the middle, little swirl to finish (this whole pour needs to be a lot quicker than the first obviously). Flat bed at around 2.30/2.40 Enjoy 👍😊
  3. I've got one and I use it after every shot to keep the group a bit cleaner between proper cleans... Decent bit of kit but I got mine half price when they were doing a site promotion, around £20 feels like a more appropriate price to me tbh...
  4. I've only just opened and had a V60 but it's absolutely delicious. I was getting lovely rhubarb like acidity and toffee in this first cup. Looking forward to getting stuck in and making a guess. Thanks as ever to @Daren and @Hairy_Hogg for organising and @vaga paul for coming up with the goods!
  5. Absolutely loving this, just came on to say I was going to take a punt at a Burundi natural so good to know I wasn't a million miles away!! Big thanks to @[email protected] @Hairy_Hogg
  6. That sounds pretty much exactly how I look at it tbh, if I can support individuals I like without breaking the bank then for me that's value. 😊 £2 is great! I pay £4 and £5 for the other 2 I do. 👍
  7. Nice one, cheers, that sounds busier than I expected! I'll have a look at the sub costs... Do you feel like you're getting value? Are you going to keep the sub going do you think?
  8. Yep, I'm certainly in the wrong business (unemployment)!! 😂 I would imagine that the giveaways, the equipment needed to record to such high production standards and the time involved in producing the videos wouldn't be insubstantial but either way fair play to him, good to see cool people doing well 👍
  9. Hey people, I've got a couple of Patreon subs and I'm thinking of signing up to the James Hoffman one, I always enjoy his books and vids on YouTube and I'm interested to check out the Discord server. The 2 Patreon's I'm already signed up to have quite different discords, one is very populated with lots of subs and lots of chat, the other is a bit of a ghost town if I'm honest! Is anyone here a member? Would love to know how you're finding it? Worth a sub? Cheers
  10. It's a really pressurised time right now, even if day to day things are relatively normal, the uncertainty going forward is bound to have an effect even if it's subconscious. Try to look after yourself and talk to someone about it. Sending best wishes.
  11. I'm usually between about 16-20 on mine for espresso. The starting point for calibration will depend on how tightly you can wind the burrs in... I imagine that everyone will tighten it relatively closely but it's always going to vary depending on how strong your wrist is! I wouldn't worry about it, the numbers are good for personal reference but I don't think they're particularly useful person to person/niche to niche
  12. Sorry to here you're having a rough time @Jony I'm sure there will be better days ahead. Hope you're not too bad today and able to speak to someone.
  13. Is that just a funny face bean you've made or a little stone..? (Or maybe it's a real little magic bean dude 😍🙏🤣)
