  1. I realise it's not morning anymore, but nvm. When the coffee looks too good to drink. La Fortuna, 17.5g in 18g VST, fine grind with long low pressure pre-infusion, 45g out in 60 seconds, this was after adding a little hot water for a delicious americano. The crema is amazing on these beans. @Hasi
  2. Of course I did, I used the Torr one to hold it 🤣 The super special NickNak handle was carefully locked away from harm.
  3. I polished my Torr tamper. I used some cheap pads that fit in a drill, Autosol and then Maas polish to finish. Turned out pretty well, it's not perfect but hard to make the camera focus on anything but the reflection now lol.
  4. High caffeine tolerance from years of over dosing lol. When I was younger I drank a litre of Red Bull clone, it was like that episode of Futurama where Fry drinks 100 cups of coffee.
  5. I mostly use my 18g VST ridgeless, but sometimes the 20g version if I want a bigger hit, usually for my travel mug, or I'm going to split it into 2 shots to make an iced coffee. I've already had 3 doubles this morning, got too many delicious new beans delivered.
  6. I got mine today, the little note made me laugh. Couldn't resist trying the La Fortuna already, my grind was a little too fine so I will try again. Already good though, should be awesome once dialled in. Thanks @Hasi and @Nicknak
  7. Bah, I missed the postman. I'll get down and pick them up, probably first thing tomorrow morning.
  8. Thanks NickNak and Hasi for all your hard work. I’ll be home later today from a two week work trip and I’ll soon be drinking delicious coffee.
  9. Love a good wheat beer, luckily I’m currently in Germany so I can get it on tap anywhere. Oh, I recommend you on Reddit, someone was asking for beans in Austria, hope they place an order with you.
  10. Can I have a bottle of that lovely looking beer with my beans lol
  11. I have done the checkout, also added 250g of Vocklabrand, hope that's ok. Thanks Hasi
  12. I've had the same problem, the Motta tamper is exactly 58mm but you need a little bigger, they also for a 58.4mm version which I guess would be a little better. Personally I went for a 58.55 mm tamper as they are meant to be perfect for competition baskets. The Torr tamper is great.
  13. I'm passed 3kgs now but it's taken me a while so I've probably not noticed the changes.
  14. Another Niche. Though I'd also be tempted by big flat burrs if it was reasonably sized, low retention and less than £1k.
