  1. Thanks guys. I hadn’t heard of the Wilfa but it looks good in terms of price/size vs the vario. The reviews seen say that it’s about as good as the encore for grind quality. Does that sound about right for v60 etc? Cheers. J
  2. I'd be interested in this if you pick it up next time. 37. Orge 250g (no LSOL at present) Thanks, J
  3. Hi, I'm going to be travelling and staying away from home in hotels for work for the foreseeable future. I have a v60 and a feldgrind 2, which I find are fantastic for making pourover when on holiday. However, I'm finding that hand grinding is getting a bit monotonous for early morning starts and I'm considering whether there might be a "portable-ish" electric grinder I could transport in the boot of my car. I've just sold a Baratza Vario with my old espresso machine, so that's the first option that springs to mind and I'm slightly kicking myself for selling it on! Is there anything else anybody would recommend? This would only ever be used for pourover, as I've got espresso grinding covered back at home. Thanks, J
  4. Hi, Looks great! We don't bother with RDT on our 6-8 month old conical. Pretty sure that in/out weights were within 0.1g when I last felt the need to check! Same on the flat but I do find my Lyn Weber HG-One benefits from it. Have bean cellars for dosing and pouring but they wouldn't be good as a container for RDT: https://lynweber.com/accessories/bean-cellars-glass/ J
  5. No probs. Will chase Bradley up with a phone call on Monday, if we don’t hear anything before then. Thanks, J
  6. Hi, Here’s an update to let others on the thread know the status of this. I made an offer about a week ago and Bradley asked for my email address to send an invoice. I returned this info straight away and asked a few questions about payment etc. I’ve chased him up once since then but haven’t heard anything from Bradley since. Thanks, j
  7. Maybe you should lose it in the warehouse? Seriously though, if you can pallete ship it to Aberdeen for an extra £60 on top of £2450, that sounds good to me! Move to PM? Thanks, J
  8. Hi, I can offer £2200. Unfortunately, I would need to transport it from West Sussex to Aberdeen!? So the logistics are gonna add a fair bit of cost on top of this... Thanks, J
  9. Sold out in about 3 minutes, I reckon!
  10. Thanks for the feedback guys. I just had a quick play with the Rio Magdalena and a notch finer on the HG One (around 30s for 25g). This did improve the aftertaste but at the expense of a very salty foretaste. I tried tamping a bit lighter and this improved the saltiness a little. I'll def try and drop in to the shop sometime - it's a shame you aren't open on sundays! Thanks, J
  11. I've had a few foundry roasts now and I've really struggled to get something good out of them... In the past, I felt it was my old grinder (Vario) that was making things tricky but I've been unable to get a decent shot from the latest ones with my HG One/Silvia (Rianjangi Peaberry and Rio Magdalena from 19/7/18). I'm trying to decide whether there is something I can improve, the silvia isn't up to the task or Foundry roasts simply aren't to my taste! For both of the roasts above, I can easily dial in a grind that doses 36g in 30s from 18g. I'm performing RDT and WDT (LW Bind Shaker) and using a naked portafilter the pour's are acceptable. The foretaste generally seems promising (sweet/sour fairly balanced) and some of the packet tasting notes start to come through. However, then I get a solid wedge of gackiness on the mid/after-taste. I've got another couple of bags of beans to try and I'll give them all a go on my home setup (Mythos/Londinium) at the weekend but I was wondering if any of you have some feedback or tips on where I may be going wrong? Is this the point where finer temperature control and/or pressure profiling start to help? Tbf, Foundry are based in shef so I should prob just drop in and see how they taste in house... Thanks, J
  12. Tempting but tricky to get to Aberdeen without a lot of faff/extra costs... Postage not an option for now? j
  13. No probs. Thabks for the quick reply. J
  14. Could be interested but would need to ship to Aberdeen... J
  15. I’ll take this at the asking price. J
