  1. This sounds crazy but fascinating! Can you give me examples? Does the stuff actually go in the portafilter?
  2. Not many of these left now and somehow contrived to make an awful V60 yesterday afternoon.... Not happy!! 🤬😂
  3. I'm so sorry to hear that, thank you for putting it so eloquently. I hope you enjoy everything in front of you and find some peace. All the best thoughts and wishes to you and yours. There is a light that will never go out.
  4. Additional non coffee ingredients...!!?? Come on, spill the beans...?? (please tell me it wasn't beans) 🤣
  5. Sorry dude, just saw this. I've got it nailed now but only about 100g left 😭 This stuff is amazing 🤣 Thanks man 👍

    Import duty

    There actually are custom duties on goods coming from the EU now. Any goods over £135 that have parts that from outside the EU or that were previously imported into the EU are liable. The ratest are variable, rarely more than 20% though. And emember to double check whether VAT is covered at point if sale or not. 👍 https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/explainers-55841048
  7. Thanks man, I was really enjoying the V60s but I had it as french press and aeropress for a few days and can't seem to get them quite back to where they wee before... I'll have a play tomorrow... Thanks again dude

    I loved this bit, trying to unpack the thought process of a fly. To seek safety you must travel to the heart of danger. Very Mr Miyagi! 🤣
  9. I had this crazy local drink in Barcelona where they mix a spro with lemon and sugar... It was surprisingly delicious but I can't be sure how informed that was by the whole experience....
  10. Have you settled on a particular pourover recipe? My last couple have been a bit off (definitely down to me...) so I'm thinking I should maybe try a different recipe... 😊

    I saw this thread yesterday morning and assumed it must be a wind up but now it's turned into an earnest fly discussion. Love it 🤣

    Lovely book, it's taught me nearly as much as @MWJB has 😁 Really helped me to identify the lsol beans over the years, I even got it right one time 🤣
  13. Had this using the Hoffman french press method this morning. It really is delicious, my fav type of coffee... A very juicy banger! Getting Tropical fruit and brown sugar this morning, I fear I'm gonna be over caffeinated for the next week or so... 😆 When I've run this in a V60 it's been quite fast so I'm veering away from Ethiopia and I'm gonna go with a Burundi natural. Look forward to finding out it's not. Thanks as ever to @Daren and @Hairy_Hogg for organising.
  14. So commissioners need to be of the same class as the people in the shows they commission? That's one of the maddest idea's I've ever heard. Fair play man! Mockumentary was a term coined by Ron Reiner for his documentary Spinal Tap. One of my fav films. It was an off the cuff comment, I really don't think it's that deep.
