  1. I have an espresso setup at home and was considering purchasing a second hand Gaggia Classic and grinder for work. In the end I went for a V60, Stagg EKG and Comandante C40 combo to replace my Aeropress and a Porlex Mini (v1) which were not giving great results. I like the 'ritual' of doing a V60 pourover and find the process quite relaxing. Work colleagues are all tea drinkers or instant coffee drinkers; they thought the Aeropress was faffy so weren't that surprised when I started a V60 with even more steps ! Some thought I was going too far when I started bringing in my own softened water[em
  2. I'm from the North too. Would argue tea is 5pm and only posh folk/soft Southerners have supper [emoji1]
  3. Nice! I wish I was as creative with the design side - would have avoided an overtime shift [emoji1]
  4. The diameter of the metal ring is 63mm. Internal diameter of the below support hole is 43mm
  5. Thanks. The hardest part was removing the original burr nut. Thankfully another post in this forum informed me that the nut is threaded in reverse meaning that in order to undo the nut you need to turn clockwise! Brexit has made sourcing parts from Europe more difficult too - hence the delay Espresso Solutions experienced getting their shipment of parts from Ceado.
  6. I contacted Ceado directly who forwarded my email onto espresso-solutions.co.uk, who seem to be the official UK parts supplier. They were really helpful and provided me with a parts diagram for the E37SD. From this I could work out that in order to mod my E37S I would need the following parts: CEA90354 - Bellows and dose funnel CEA40316 - Bellows support CEA70250 - Chute cover CEA40319 - M8 bean distributer/burr safety nut All of these parts are now available on their website. Be warned though; they are expensive for what they are. Particularly expensive was the bellows support piece. Thi
  7. Hello all. I'm looking to purchase a set of the 'zero retention bellows' that come with the SD models for my E37S. I'm also after the rubber cap that attaches to the grounds chute. I believe the chute cap has a part number of 70165 but I cannot find a part number for the bellows. Please could anyone help with a part number and also point me in the direction of somehere that may be able to supply the parts? Google has failed me so far... Cheers, Andrew
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
