  1. Really interesting thread! As a novice I had not even considered my grinder would have such a difference in flavour and body when extracted the same using a different grinder. Also always aim for a 1:2 on my major and am generally happy with results but sometimes lack that 'sweetness' often described always thought it was more to do with the limitation of my classic. Is there anywhere or anyone local to worcestershire who can check this alignment for me? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Is that a recommendation for the pour over? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  3. Thank you both. Listed on ebay during £1 weekend. Starting at £135...... seemed like a middle ground and need to see it gone Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  4. Really nice in the log burner! But I have quite a few of the the really badly burr'd bottoms stored as I can never get my axe through them. If you are localish your welcome to them Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

  6. Thanks for the suggestion. I have loads of burr apple wood lying around that usually gets burnt that would look great if only I had the skills to turn it Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    St Austell

    I will be down around St Austell in Cornwall next week although because of children I wont be able to travel off to far. I would like to pick up soem coffee from a local roaster when down that way, does anyone know of any shops or coffee shops about that I might be able to pick up some locally roasted beans? A little research and I see some roasters about falmouth but I dont think I will make it that far. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  8. Met Rin at Lakeland 100 race this year, they had a coffee stall running all weekend. Lovely guy and very passionate. I took home a few bags, tbh was disappointed in the casa espresso blend (something like that) but the Guatemalan single origin was lovely. Really liked that he wanted to talk coffee and as soon as I showed an interest wanted me to try everything they had on offer. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  9. Hi. What are people using as the lid once the octopus funnel mod had been done? I have been using the lid off of my old Iberital MC2 but am just selling this so need to replace with something! Suggestions / offers gratefully recieved. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  10. No worries! Thank you. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  11. Hi I have a Europiccola that from some research I think is from the late 80's. I brought it a while back second hand on Ebay and used for a few years until work got a bit more pressure and earlier starts so I moved to a Classic to save me some time. Just wondering what it might be worth as looking to upgrade and can't justify having this sat on a shelf if I do (even though it looks nice). When recieved it was definately used and needed some cleaning up Since owning I have - semi regularly descaled and cleaned bits with Puly caff - replaced pressure bearing and spring with mushroom and spring - replaced all seals and screen twice again recently (bag of bits left from service packs can be included) Bad bits - see pictures - needed to seal the steam wand onto the tank with PTFE tape when recieved due to not quite sealing - clip on the back of the base plate broken (still holds on with screw in the middle of the base) - one of the wires on the base came off a while back and was solder back on badly - some pitting and corrosion as standard under the drip tray Comes with PF, double and single basket I guess it would be perfect for someone wanting to try out a lever machine Thanks for your time Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  12. Hi. Living near the Malvern Hills I have been running my machine on freshly collected Malvern water as it's free and we collect to drink anyway. Has anyone else got experience using Malvern water (it's most famous for containing nothing although I dont know how true this is)? I know it used to be bottled and distributed by Cola but cannot find any references to its content or other people using it. Is there anywhere I can have it tested? Thanks Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  13. Hi Edwin. The potential to upgrade from my classic has got me twitching, is this still available? Cant see much about it online, if you have a video you could share with me it would be much appreciated. Being at Worcester could easily arrange collection somewhere.

  14. Where are you based? I might be interested if close by to keep some bits as spares for mine Thanks Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  15. I get James' regularly as they are local. Have the Rwandan at work at the moment and is very nice through the Aeropress. But will have a lookout for the Brazilian. They dont seem to advertise online as hard as some roasters do Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
