  1. I had the same issue. Thankfully got CHC to send me 500g of beans roasted last week to me, on Tuesday. #smartthinking [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Yeah mate, I'll take that from you! Send me your details and I'll forward payment.
  3. If you're willing to split, I'll take a couple of membranes from you!
  4. Haha! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Indeed! Simplistic guide to dialling in: If you’re getting sour shots go finer and if you’re getting ash-like or smoky like shots go coarser. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Haha. Think sweet with a hint of floral. Not sure how else to describe it!
  7. Coarsening wasn’t giving me much joy - I’ve been having fruity, cherry-esque, parma violet type joy at 1:2 in 37-39 secs. Anything close to 30secs is a bit smoky. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Hmm. Well, at least it’s arrived, right? [emoji23]
  9. You gotta go down and fill it - they have plastic hoppers you can fill up from. Personally, I don’t like the idea that the beans sit open like that, though. Good Coffee Cartel in Glasgow do a similar thing with metal tins.
  10. I live here and I’ve never gotten round to trying Obadiah! How was it?
  11. My NS Oscar II developed a fault recently (turns itself off when the pump is engaged). Gianni identified the fault, dispatched the part yesterday, from Italy, and it arrived today. I tip my hat to thee - excellent service as always, from Elektros.
  12. Be sure to pop past Bostock, then. Best baked goods from here to... y’know, there.
  13. I’ve had similar issues. I don’t think it’s down to my technique or equipment - it’s not something I’ve encountered very often in the last few years, tbh. When it hits it’s nice, but it so often misses - which leaves a rather ‘meh’ cup!
  14. Light roasts in themselves do not have more soluble content, the nature of light roast necessitates a finer grind, hence more fines. As for shot time, I’m speaking from experience of this particular machine - not sure what you’re disputing...?
