  1. There’s a new black niche on eBay. £439 or best offer... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Pressure gauge, looks better, free jug [emoji2371] The barista express grinder is good enough when the coffee is medium to medium dark and very fresh up to 4 weeks. This is the case with all grinders but the barista in particular. The sage grinder pro is slightly better and can cope with a wider range(still no good for light really) you can use it for more brew methods and more importantly you can sell it on very easily secondhand should you want to upgrade in the future. I genuinely think both are the best sub £400 new packages. I’d go for the separates but understand why lots opt for the all in one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I know somebody who had the same dilemma, personally I’d go with the separates as the sage smart grinder is superior and can go finer when necessary however there are quite a few plus points to the barista express so it’s a very tight call. Incidentally my friend opted for the barista express from costco(still £365) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. LOL. I felt exactly the same. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. My Personal favourite this one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. A few people use these, or 3D printed variants Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Me again [emoji23] I’ve owned both and while you’ll be happy with either you should decide if single dosing is important to you, if it is spend the extra on the niche, if not then it’s a tougher decision. For me the niche is a grinder that you may not feel the need to upgrade from but with the Mignon there is more chance upgraditis will set in. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Are they mk2 secondhand prices though? I sold my specialita for £250 and for that price it’s a worthy upgrade on the mk2. If you can get a new mk2 for under £200 then that would be a better deal than £360 for a new mignon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Unfortunately the kg79 isn’t an espresso grinder, the best priced new acceptable grinder is the sage grinder pro, £144 with John Lewis at the minute which is about as low as they have been. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I wouldn’t back anything kickstarted or crowdfunded (for equity), working in a connected area leaves me with no doubt 95% + are a farce. It’s a smart looking machine though.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Perhaps the switch isn’t that bad after all [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Good answer. Well I guess from a technical aspect it may not be but some kind of automatic switch off would be good, is there ever a reason to have it running for more than a minute each time the lid is closed? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Just be careful who you buy off if your going to chance one off eBay, ask for a photo inside the boiler. There are good ones that come up but you have to be quick as demand is high. Personally I’d say pay the extra if it’s at all possible and have one [email protected] . A service kit is £50ish plus the time to fit it all and that’s if you don’t uncover any other issues.

  15. Must have been horrible to come back to that running. I’ve had a similar albeit not quite as bad experience when I left the lever up on a hx machine after cleaning it, the WiFi plug came on and it was left running for quite a few hours. I’d email James as I agree [email protected] I think they’d be interested. Good sign it was still going, thinking about it that switch is really crap. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
