  1. Picked up a bag recently on a day out in Birmingham and just managed to open it. First shot and definitely too fast so need to grind finer but very taste nevertheless.

  3. Tried it again starting the timer after 3-5 seconds when the flow seemed consistent: 1/4 turn - 2.27ml/s 1/2 turn - 4.3ml/s 3/4 turn - 5ml/s 1 turn - 5.65ml/s Didn’t go further as this already exceeds the stock full flow. what makes me think is when starting a shot with this set at full turn the pressure gauge seems to be jumping quicker to 3 bar. On a standard shot without flow control fitted it riser gradually to this point as well. To achieve similar effect it has to be set to 1 & 1/4 turn. Should I just ignore this or is there any logic behind that ? https://youtube.com/shorts/-a3wIUcjVX4?feature=share
  4. @DavecUK thank you I will try it again this morning.
  5. I was wondering about the correct way to measure the flow rate and can’t find information on this which would be definite. Should you start timing from first drop in the container or from starting the pump ? This is what I’m getting although strangely this can vary as I run it few times. Figure without brackets is timing 20 seconds from first drop in container, in brackets timing from starting the pump. 1 & 1/4 turn - 5.7ml/s (5.075ml/s) 1 turn - 5.31ml/s (5.04ml/s) 3/4 turn - 5ml/s (4.68ml/s) 1/2 turn - 3.7ml/s (3.54ml/s) 1/4 turn - 2ml/s (1.72ml/s)
  6. Well it's been a long while since last update! I've been following the forum and busy enjoying my setup. So what's changed: As I do like a single shot and was doing great with Lelit standard single basket using a convex tamper decided to dig deeper and follow the La Marzocco basket route. Didn't want to go all in initially buying dosing ring so had one 3d printed which worked quite well. Main benefit of this basket is using less coffee per shot - 7.5g instead of 9.5g in the standard Lelit basket. As this provced a good solution took a plunge and got the Scrlet ring and 41mm tamper. It is much easier to work with the proper ring as it is heavy and sits without moving. Really happy with this! As I was itching to get the flow control kit for months ended up getting the coffee sensor one to see if it will live up to my expectations with possibility of changing to Lelit model in the futute. I am delighted with the kit and I'd advice anyone sitting on a fence to get one. It allows you to fine tweek your shots and get different taste of the coffee you know. Had 500g of coffee rosted in March 2021 which wasn't great and tried few different profiles and with the sweet bump I am getting a very enjoyable cup. Also stained the corks on the vials darker using espresso! So they match darker wood on the Niche. And finally my corner as it stands now
  7. Started on this on Monday and getting some really tasty shots. The smell is fantastic when ground and in the cup. I run out of milk yesterday and used oat instead and must say the fruitiness was all out. The normal milk is taming it a bit but still very very good. I am currently going at 17g to 41g and playing about with ramping down flow half way to about 7 bar. Works really great in a single shot as well 7.5g to 20g.
  8. @DavecUK thank you very much !
  9. I just got my hands on a coffee sensor flow control kit and about to fit it this evening. I watched @DavecUK videos on the Lelit kit and importance of lubricating prior to fitting. I don’t know how to do it on this kit. I don’t know how to split it and I’m afraid of damaging it. can someone give me an idiots guide please ?
  10. Arrived today! Missed delivery so had to go and fetch it. Will give it few more days before trying but will report back. Could smell it through the packaging in the post office
  11. I think it really comes down to what you like most. I’d recommend going for base which is 58.35/58.4/58.5mm. you can often find a good deal in classified section of the forum.

  14. x2 and is there a recommneded resting time for espresso ? @BlackCatCoffee
  15. Had a pleasure of picking up a bag of Las Alasitas during our visit to London last weekend. Really great spot serving cracking coffee and really tasty food. Opened the bag today (roasted 9/7) and the smell that hits you is mind boggling! Really large beans. Tastes exactly as described! Absolutely stunning coffee.
