  1. I currently use a Lido 3 for my espresso needs, and have been for the past 18 months or so. I usually have 2-3 coffees a day, and for that quantity, I don't particularly mind. Dialing in a new coffee is a real pain but once that's fine then it's good again. Given that I've been using it for 18 months, I feel I'm in a good position to say that it's not as bad as you might think (provided you don't have arthritis etc). A good hand grinder kind of adds zen to the whole process. I would much prefer something that is easier to dial in (and a lot less bulkier), so with that view I would say don't get the Lido 3 (unless it has something specific that you want). If I didn't have this, I would be going Comandante C40 or the Kinu.
  2. 20 minutes, is this using boiling water?

    I know Redber do this, but I find they roast darker than my liking. Their Medium roast is closer to Dark IMO.
  4. How do you find you have had to adjust, going from the Dedica to this?
  5. Black handled tamper? The Barista Hustle one?
  6. For me it's more hassle than I can be bothered with if I'm honest.
  7. Yeh, I'll stick with the Porlex. Thanks guys.
  8. Thank you for that. I'll leave it in that case.
  9. I grind what would be 6 clicks on the standard Porlex, to give me what I enjoy in the Aeropress. If the Q2 can provide that, with a smaller consistent distribution, then it would be an upgrade?
  10. Currently I'm using my Porlex Mini I for my Aeropress, and while it does the job, I can't help wondering if the inconsistent grinds is ruining my coffee to some extent. I was initially going to upgrade to the Aergrind but I can't be bothered waiting for it to come into stock to buy. So now I'm thinking of the 1Zpresso Q2. It seems to get good reviews. Any advice, thoughts, please?
  11. @MildredM I need to revisit your thread of your coffee setup
  12. Particularly enjoyed taking this picture, and touching it up to give this final result. I'm sure a few here must be into photography? Please share. EDIT: Just in case anyone wondered, this is Misspent Youth (v18) by Cartwheel Coffee.
  13. I have been using the Lido 3 for the past year at least for grinding for espresso. Since the lockdown that includes 2-3 espresso shots at 17g per shot each day, for 2 months at least now. As much as it's no fun, the fact that I get a great grind quality, and a good espresso at the end of it, I'm not too bothered. Keep in mind the Lido 3 is one of the more difficult grinders to use for espresso.
  14. I hadn't tried that, will give that a try next time also. Thank you.
