  1. Ceado sell an upgrade kit that will give you the new worm drive. It's much better in my opinion, having installed it on my E37S. It does cost around £200 so is not cheap! Sent from my SM-G988B using Tapatalk
  2. Is your grinder the 110V or 240V version? The 110V tends to grind a little slower I believe due to the motor RPM being lower. Sent from my SM-G988B using Tapatalk
  3. You will need to make the initial adjustment with the motor running to hear the change in sound. Don't worry about the burrs touching - you will not damage them. That is the reccomended way and is the way most people do it. With regards going past zero, again don't worry. The number is just there for relative guidance. You can move the metal disc with the numbers on without actually altering the grind setting by sliding it with two fingers. Like I said, find the point the burrs touch and then slide the number scale to suit. I can't remember exactly where my grinder was set to by the
  4. I find that I need to grind longer (on a finer setting) for lighter roast beans. The longest it has taken me to grind 18g with light roast is about 5.3 seconds Sent from my SM-G988B using Tapatalk
  5. Mine is the 2018 model with the non adjustable SCC. I have the double set to 4.2 seconds and that gives me 18 grams Sent from my SM-G988B using Tapatalk
  6. Hi. I have a Ceado E37s similar to yours. The scc thing on newer models cannot be changed. In my experience there is no need to change the SCC angle now as the spray/static issues have been engineered out with the revised design change. With regards your grind setting, the initial factory setting is will need to be altered. You will need to run the grinder and keep twisting the adjustment finer until you hear the chirping sound of the burrs touching. Once you here that, back of a touch courser. That should be your zero point. What I then did was get some cheep supermarket beans and run them
  7. I made the same mistake a few years ago. Lubrication should sort it out. Don't leave it too long though. When I had the issue I ignored it/thought it would self lubricate (read somewhere coffee oils will cure lever stiffness) and ended up needing to replace the cam and pins due to excessive wear. Not expensive or difficult, but avoidable had I lubed earlier! Sent from my SM-G988B using Tapatalk
  8. I have the ECM version installed on my R58. Was very easy to install, needing only an adjustable spanner. Works perfectly. Both ECM and Profitec versions should work on a rocket no bother Sent from my SM-G988B using Tapatalk
  9. Forgot to say, no special tools just an Allen key and an adjustable spanner for M12 nuts Sent from my SM-G988B using Tapatalk
  10. Hi there! It was really easy to swap them and I definitely prefer them. All you need to do is remove the top panel (sides as well for better access but can get away without if you are nimble) and undo the M12 nuts attaching the copper pipes to the original valves. Undo the hex bolts on the front with an Allen key and the valves can be swapped out. I really like the ECM valves and ordered them from a German site. The owner speaks English and was really helpful https://www.kaffeewerk-dresden.de/ecm-heidelberg/ecm-espressomaschinen-ersatzteile/ecm-synchronika-ersatzteile/ Sent from my SM-G988B
  11. Thanks that's all good info. The coffee I'm making tastes good to me but I am wondering could it be better? I hadn't considered water composition before and was primarily worrying about keeping my machine healthy. Having dived down the water rabbit hole it seems that there is much in common with beer brewing! I was a homebrewer some years ago and had my local water analysed for that. Bicarb was 57.9, calcium 21.1 and magnesium 3.3. I think this is pretty good for espresso already, based on the limited info I have read. I think I will test my water after the OCS2 filter with a home test kit t
  12. Hello all. I currently use a plumbed-in Rocket R58 and pull around 6 shots a day, so fairly light use. I've been using a Everpure OCS2 in-line filter to protect the machine from scale build up. The choice of in-line filter was down to what was reccomended in the Rocket manual. A lot of people seem to be using BWT Bestmax and Bestmax Premium filters. I was wondering what others on this forum are using as an in-line filter and what the consensus is on which is best. The Bestmax premium seems to do some Mg exchange which apparently improves flavour. However it looks like the filter n
  13. Will give the Tynemouth a try as I haven't seen that before. Mostly been drinking coffee from Rave, Square Mile and Hasbean so will be nice to go local Sent from my SM-G988B using Tapatalk
  14. Hi there. The only local ones I've tried are Pumphreys and Osbourne coffee. Both were a little too harsh for my taste, especially Pumphreys. I prefer mid roast, caramel/nut/fudge flavours. How about you? Any good local rosters to reccomend? Sent from my SM-G988B using Tapatalk
  15. Thanks. It serves me well. I've told myself no more mods or upgrades... Sent from my SM-G988B using Tapatalk
