  1. I don’t think anyone is being negative I feel that people are responding with legitimate questions and concerns on how a “review” can be taken at face value and the impact it can have. Having an opinion and giving review are two different things in my opinion. If you have an opinion I’m not going to look into who is providing it. But if you are reviewing something I would. Would you value a review provided by myself as much as an expert with a history? Personally I’m not going to be swayed either way by this review but someone who is legitimately looking at using the roaster may.
  2. Looking at your first review it seems you may have bought pre ground which may explain things a little. But as Tom asked it seems a little odd you are reviewing coffee when you can’t even provide any meaningful information on the coffee. At best it is a review of the service which you have provided little insight on and provided even less opportunity to the roaster to make things right and at worst it is a commentary of what particular beans you like. Given you don’t know how to provide tasting notes how can we trust that the beans were truly stale? Could you describe what stale beans taste li
  3. What about gift subscription. Whilst still being beans they are more flexible.
  4. Not an expert and may even be entirely wrong. But seems like the foam isn’t incorporated well enough so you have like a cap of foam. This seems to be due to spinning the milk rather than rolling. Solution would be to have steam wand less angled and more vertical.
  5. Put the cleaning disk into a pressurised basket. If the dial doesn’t move then yer it’s broken. But from the sounds of it maybe just the dial itself. if you have old supermarket beans that are running fast you probably want to use the pressurised basket for now anyway. also youtube changing inner or top burr setting.
  6. Apparently the plastic part directs the coffee to the centre, so it depends on personal preference as some people remove it as coffee gets caught in it.
  7. Hi, how many people will you be making coffee for? Reason I ask is the pro will have a stronger steam wand so can shave some time. Although there seems to be a built in timer so if you do too much (around 500 ml of milk which is still a lot)in a large jug then you will not have enough time, requiring start stop. The pro has a step less grinder, but since the grinder isn’t top end it probably doesn’t benefit too much. The express can be switched on beforehand to warm itself and the portafilter up. The pro is more aesthetically pleasing and built for user pleasure e.g. lcd scr
  8. Depends if I’m feeling frisky or not, you never tried beef flavour infused coffee?
  9. And here’s me using 3 toothpicks and a rubber band. edited typo
  10. Did you take the plunge? was looking at it and curiously the subscription weight changes to 250? Not sure if this is an additional perk or an error.
  11. They discontinued them years ago 😢
  12. Hi all, this is probably a long shot but does anyone remember the double handled massimo costa cups. The older version where it looked more like a soup bowl. Getting a bit of nostalgia and would like to get my hands on one. Found a couple of examples. also this one but the older ones were more plump. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Costa-Double-Handle-Saucer-Massimo/dp/B00KMCRL62 if there are any none costa branded would be interested too.
  13. Couldn’t you get a sage DTP for that price which is seen as a decent machine. I’m sure there are others for 300 as well with similar popularity and quality.
  14. https://www.hotukdeals.com/tag/sage Their was still some chances for offers. £399 the most recent. Albeit Black Friday. But looking at the threads even in October there was an offer. Also if op is lucky there might be a 20% off voucher up for grabs and that could be £480.
  15. Someone else recently said they bought there’s for £350. Not sure where though. But you can defo get it for less that £549.
  16. Btw you could get a brand new barista express for £350, don’t look at RRP. I got mine for £380, so I wouldn’t buy a 5 yr old second hand machine to save maybe £80. Also depends on source, people say it’s you tend to get better looked after equipment here but YMMV.
  17. I would argue too well packaged took me an hour to get into mine.
  18. Can I go in on the other half tonne if that’s still up for grabs?
  19. Might as well throw in a cheeky offer of £12 delivered 😅
  20. Personally if you are unsure I would lean to returning as I believe you have a sage, meaning you are in a catch 22 situation. You can’t know if it is cosmetic until you try it but if you try it you have to mod it meaning you can’t return.
  21. So tempted but just bought a tamper😑
  22. Hi, Just came across this was you still thinking of selling the ims items and bottomless portafilter?
