  1. The Oracle comes with a single basket ,not sure of the size in grams .. If you are buying new you could get the white glove service person to set the tamper height right for single basket use .. If the fan/tamper is adjusted to lower the dose on a double it might not tamp properly on a single .. Going from single and. Double would also need the grind adjusted , but if the other half just uses the Oracle grinder and you the Niche ,that would be fine ..
  2. Well hello , she is a lovely looking beast .. Congrats you got her ..
  3. The bottom one me thinks..πŸ˜‡ Has the flat been relegated to a clothes horse ☹️
  4. I might be having something on its way 😎... In JUNE 🀯
  5. Well on the second attempt ,the pre infusion didn’t go too well so I sort of ignored that but managed 6 bar throughout . πŸ₯³πŸ•Ί.. The amount the knob was turned was minimal .. So I don’t know what the other full turn left might be used for πŸ₯΄ ..
  6. It will be sometime before Videos are released .. It will need intense concentration on my part to overcome my inadequate efforts .. πŸ€―πŸ˜‚ . ... Plus I can’t steam milk at the same time .. Might have to try the glass method πŸ˜‚
  7. It should do if Rocket use a standard E61 .. Both this and the Lelit one fit other machines . Espressounderground are listing Machines they or customers have found don’t fit .. A check on the internet might reveal more .
  8. I just sort of tried that , didn’t go too well .. A little more practice required πŸ˜‚.. Very small adjustments needed as opposed to my let’s have a guess there .. The spent puck is so much easier to work with πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  9. Howdy 😎, how is that banjo practice going ... Well the first cup was fully open , just to get a look at how the things looked normal like .. I then ran water through the spent puck fiddling with knob , watching how it affected the pressure gauge .. Might go and try a 6 bar shot with a little perfusion 😬
  10. I do look after my stuff , see πŸ˜‚
  11. Yes pleased I fitted it .. Time will tell I suppose if it gets used much . The Profitec knocks out good shots constantly ( am I now going to mess that up πŸ˜‚) But I have read a little on slow ramp ups , pre infusion etc and wanted to play .. The PTFe on the gauge has worked with no washers and no leaks from anywhere else ..πŸ‘
  12. Having been tempted by the Lelit profile control device at Β£252 I was kindly pointed in the direction of Bella Barista who have started stocking the Profitec one at Β£179 plus Β£6 postage . It arrived within a couple of days . It arrives in two pieces the flow control unit and a pressure gauge for the group . There are no instructions and no washers for the gauge are included . However fitting is a doddle πŸ‘. The unit comes in one piece , so unscrew the existing Mushroom and replace with the unit . I put some grease on the mushroom o ring on the bottom and a little on the threaded part . I did speak to Bella Barista about the washers for the gauge which are mention on the website . It does not come with any and they say not to use the existing one under the E61 bolt . Their advise to use ptfe tape and use only hand pressure to nip it up in position was followed. Waiting for it to warm up to check for any leaks and have a play .😎 . It took more time to give the machine a quick polish for the photo 😬 than to fit it πŸ‘
  13. will you please let us know how you get along with it once installed? Yes just letting my machine cool down so I can fit it.. I was actually up before the postman today ..πŸ˜‡
