  1. What grinders were you considering for the upgrade? Would be interesting to see what improvements you noticed retaining the Rancilio and upgrading the grinder only as you’ve been using your current combo for so long.
  2. I’ve had a motta leveller for about a month now. My shots have definitely improved in consistency by taste and look (naked portafilter) It adjusts with ease and has a nice weight to it. The only thing I’ve noticed is coffee grounds do build up between the two parts. The gap between the base and top, I can only imagine the tolerance is a little baggy maybe? Not to much of a problem, just needs cleaning every now and then. Just a slight concern all of the dose isn’t making it into the basket (18g vst)
  3. https://www.swisswuff.ch/wordpress/?p=385 I found this helpful temperature surfing my Silvia
  4. Well it’s sure to be of my taste then! Although it hardly pushing boundaries! I did order a little something else also. I’ll see how I go on.
  5. https://www.origincoffee.co.uk/products/resolute I keep going back to this, never tried the Rave though. Infact I’m going to order some now.
  6. Would this be the best protocol for a Silva also? And when recommissioning, what’s the best way to prime everything? Thanks in advance people.
  7. I don’t know if this checks out, but I seem to taste sour on the left and right extreme sides of my Tongue and bitter flavours on the centre/back of the tongue.

  9. Upgraded to a Niche from a SJ last week (took about 7days from purchase to receiving). I use a bottomless PF, with the SJ always had Multiple streams but no spritzing. Now, with the Niche a single stream most times and had to reduce the dose from 19g to 18g as a result. Quick stir in the cup into the pf level, tamp. Lovely simple work flow lovely taste. note: that’s with 18sec PI 9 bar decreasing so quite forgiving I think.
  10. Seems to be throwing more unseen treads up on the ‘unseen threads’ tab. Great improvement
  11. How much do you want for 1 neon? ?
  12. It’s just you read up on single dosing commercial grinders, the Ceado 37s for example or maybe a Mazzer major and if people have sorted the retention shortfalls, the next issue is they don’t taste right unless they run with a full hopper or weight over the beans. Suggesting that the behaviour of the single dose when ground is a variable that effects consistency/taste. So it is seen as an issue, by some, when considering a grinder. Now people are playing with Popcorning remedy’s for the Niche they are all of a sudden doing so in vein or over thinking things
  13. Which is exactly what i was eluding to in my first comment. oh ok @DavecUK, that’s why I’m waiting
