  1. They have sent me free 1kg on Unit 14 so I will let that rest and give it a try. Not sure what the issue was with the other beans as I have never had an issue before. One thing I did notice was that the beans were like bullets! Very hard and made a high pitched noise when hitting the plastic cup I measure them in. Also the grind time was much longer, maybe in part to me having to grind finer but I think maybe due to the hardness. I did make an error by putting the bag in the fridge for a couple of days. I didn't realise about the oxidisation.
  2. They do both so was espresso. It tastes very very bitter It was a week past roasting when I got it
  3. Just as an update they have refunded me and are sending some free beans.
  4. I bought some Aquiares Estate PB from Roundhill Roastery. I tried to dial it in but I can't get a decent pour. I use a naked portafilter so can see that it doesn't look right. The espresso is very watery/no texture. Never had this before. I use a Sage DB and a Niche Zero. I have contacted the company and first made them aware and they tried to advise. I tried again with the beans but have now asked for a refund or some replacment beans. Has any one any ideas why this is happening?
  5. I think they started that at £1500!
  6. not mine but might be usefull: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/133523033164?ul_noapp=true
  7. All sorted thanks all for the quick responses! 😀
  8. I think you're right. I need to put the postcode in the postcode box and also in the credit card line. Just a bit different from usual.
  9. I'm having issues buying. I've tried credit and debit card but it seems to be an issue with my post code as it's saying issue with post code (under the bank card box). My post code is only 6 digits. Any ideas?
  10. Just set the grinder to 25 and it took 33 seconds to get 36 grams. The pump definitely does not sound heathy. The coffee doesn't taste the best either. I will set it back to 22 and should get 36 grams in 40 seconds. Then call Lakeland on Monday when they are back answering phones.
  11. I have just removed the back and I can't see any issue so I'm guessing the pump is at fault. I ran it without a portafilter until it stopped after 60 seconds. I had exactly 400ml of water so the flow rate is 400ml per minute It would be really handy if anyone has time to run theirs for 60 seconds to see how much water comes out or run it to 400ml and time it.
  12. Just for future reference as I can't find sage parts: Pump: Ulka ep5 or ex5 Over Pressure Valve (OPV): ?????
  13. Also I do get your point but if your 4k telly is broke you can't watch anything so you have to get your telly working before you can watch 4k/hd or 480p
  14. I'm sure I will, now this has happened, look at changing my approach to water and grinder. My original thought as a newbie was to go for the DTP and SGP and learn from there and also see if having an espresso machine was the way I wanted to go. I think it worked out pretty well until yesterday. Also I got both from Lakeland so have the 3 year for any reason refund/replacement. Now there is an issue I realise that I need to relook at machine/water/grinder etc. My initial thought is to look at the machine situation as mine is faulty and the grinder is working. Once I have a machine tha
