  1. I'm afraid we are up against a certain section of the community who do not give a shit about anybody else.

    There will always be the foil hat brigade who think they know better, I've always been a bit of a hippy but I know whats right and wrong.

    Mother nature is missing a trick here, she could purge the earth of the idiots but she is unfortunately taking the wrong ones.

    Roll on the vaccine so we can get back to a more normal life (hopefully).

    Have you changed the gasket? Maybe it leaks pressure and doesn’t have the energy to properly push the coffee up?

    I wonder if descaling would help? Maybe there is a build up of mineral deposits restricting the flow and causing strange effects?

    Just thinking aloud.

    Hi Dav,

    I have changed the gasket (for original) and I will check this again.

    I use Osmio water so descaling is not an option.

    Many thanks for your thoughts, appreciated.

  3. I've used Bialetti's for a few years now with no problems, but recently it has started to spurt (fnarr fnarr) straight away.

    I use the hot water method, tbh my taste buds are shot so it makes no difference to the taste, just weird that it has started to happen.

    Venus 6 cup version.

    Interesting - would like to have one of these.  Does it say how much?

    Has to be bought elsewhere

    The infamous Caffeitalia has them for £13.20

    Your choice wether you use them.

  5. Only game I play is Elite Dangerous on Xbox One X.

    I doubt that I will upgrade, unless the new one offers more for Elite (which I doubt).

    Played Elite since Speccy and C64 days but can't be arsed to upgrade my PC to the specs required, hence the Xbox.

  6. Just done this mod to get the Delonghi to grind coarser (opposite to this video).

    I have 2 grinders, Eureka Specialita for espresso and the Delonghi for pour over due to my lazyness in not bothering to dial in between espresso and pour over.

    Now perfect for pour over as it did not grind coarse enough.

    The video shows how to mod for a finer grind but just go opposite for coarser setting.

  7. I have a Eureka Specialita for my espresso and a cheap delonghi for pour over, can't be bothered to dial in every time I switch brews.

    I've just done the delonghi hack to grind coarser, which is the opposite to this video :-
