  1. I tried to get serious about it all, but after all these years my taste buds are shot to hell. After all, it's just a cup of coffee (even thinking about moving the machine and grinder on).
  2. 18gr in - whatever out, I dont care anymore. I bought a single doser, and used it twice, I now just throw 18 into the hopper and use what comes out, or use a timed dose. Each to their own, personally I can no longer be doing with all the f**king about.
  3. Like him or not, he certainly knew a sense of duty - I liked him. RIP.
  4. As mentioned before, no pain, no reaction. But my daughter just had hers with 2 days of headache, no sleep and aches etc' - she must take after her mum
  5. Got to love all the helpful coffee snobs on here with your funny and insulting remarks. I suppose thats the internet for you, never understood that if you can't be helpful why reply ? Some think they are funny or, a safely behind the monitor keyboard warrior. Nice to see some helpful advice mixed in with the dross. op, drink what you want mate it's only coffee...........
  6. AZ here, never felt it and no side affects, apart from a slight soreness around the injected site, lasted till the next day. I'm either very lucky or have a high threshold for drugs thanks to my 1960's experimenting
  7. I no longer tamp, I use an adjustable distribtor similar to a Jack.
  8. I've gone the opposite way, from ceramic to plastic. Only reason being the plastic has a bigger exit hole (ooo ar matron) I'm getting a quicker pour over and less clogging.
  9. tbh I try not to overthink this, fill up, use & fill up again. If the machines flow started to slow down or machines maintenance light appears - change filter etc' I agree it's not for everyone but the fact that I get no scale (machine worst enemy) far out weighs any other consideration. Also the plastic waste from bottled water I was throwing away also was another reason.
  10. @Bullit121, I think your filter change after 6 months could be way out, it depends on your tap water and how much you use. The average filter change is 12 months, as was mine, I only changed mine because the machine told me too. Never looked back since I bought this, no plastic waste and no kettle, apart from a gooseneck for pour over. I have never had to descale my Lelit and the kettle has absolutely no scale. If it went tits up tomorrow I would not hesitate buying another, if it could not be fixed.

  14. Yet again, first class service from BB Bought a new Eureka Filtro grinder and a couple of dark hoppers (one for my Specialita) on Wednesday. Unfortunately the hopper lids were cracked, quick phone call to David who sorted it. New lids arrived today with no problems. Excellent service as always.
