  1. I finished up my bag of it today - had as espresso only. Very nice. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  2. Pop it on YouTube, then post a link here.
  3. More or less covered off by everyone here. Industry standard burrs, built-in calibration/alignment, relatively small foot print, not offensive on the worktop (think appliance-esque like the Niche)... I basically want a flat burr Niche, thinking about it.
  4. Looking good! Thanks for a great transaction and understanding while I impatiently waited for my Vesuvius to come in - and glad I could give you a quick intro to the machine. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I have. Hopefully you'll find upgrading the Mignon to add another dimension to your shots, too!
  5. I originally joined the forum to explore coffee, get hints and tips on how to get started, and hoped it would help me find my first machine. It did. I stuck around for a bit, took a break from most forums and social media, and came back again recently - and have to admit that the environment feels different. Discussions and disagreements turn personal more often than they seemed to previously, and the tone is harsher than I recall. Doesn't seem to be exclusive to CFUK (that's part of the reason I don't bother with social media), so probably just the way things are going. I don't post a great deal, but read lots throughout the day, and there's still tons of excellent discussions around coffee and equipment I enjoy consuming. There's the odd thread in Off Topic I enjoy, too - but steer around many of the threads already highlighted here. I think, as a section, it has a place and there's plenty of topics that will prompt interesting and insightful conversations. I'm sure a lot of members on here have different intersecting interests beyond good coffee, but I do feel like there is a tendency for disagreements to turn personal when beliefs are challenged, which in turn might cause someone to hesitate before posting, and possibly even turn them off it entirely. If you're worried posting an opinion is going to see you insulted and put down, why bother? I enjoy a good discussion, but showing respect for others' POV and world view makes for a more constructive and meaningful conversation. This was a bit of a longer waffle than I'd planned, but thought I'd put my 2p in. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  6. As the owner (or property?) of a whippet/saluki mix, I wholeheartedly agree! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  7. Noticed them, yes - but not a scooby what they're there for!
  8. Welcome, from just down the road in Chessington! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  9. From someone who has only used the LR (at the lever meet!), I love how quiet the LR24 is. https://vimeo.com/429510140
  10. Traders in Surbiton also sell Rocket, and service and repair machines. May also be able to source them. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  11. Yep, 3-hole tip. I find it super, super powerful!
  12. And received, safe and sound - thanks for a quick and smooth transaction.
