  1. Mine turned up this morning and just made an espresso, definitely tasting strong chocolate notes, very little acidity - in agreement with @Rapid, it tastes like an Asian bean. It reminds me of some Sumatran beans I've previously had, so I'll plump for Indonesia Thanks for posting @Crownandcanvasit's been fun guessing - look forward to the reveal!
  2. There's a copy available on Biblio here, but it comes in at about £30 including shipping from America - seems hard to find a copy this side of the pond... 🤔
  3. I'm no longer making them, but @MrShades is selling them on his website. They're a really nice design and include the longer vent tube.
  4. Another day, another bargain Classic to be had if you are nearby! - https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/223744005730411/
  5. Spotted this one today, surely worth a punt if you're nearby! https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/664847830795091/ Edit: The seller seems to have increased the price to £70 now!
  6. As far as I am aware there is no other grinder that will grind by weight at the £500 price point. I've owned a Sette 270W and while they work, they're a good espresso grinder with a really nice workflow. However, I'd strongly advise against buying one as their reliability is awful. I'd read about the reliability issues and bought one anyway, needless to say I regretted my choice when it stopped working. It's up to you if you want to take that risk. If you don't want to single dose I'd buy a Eureka Mignon, and if you do want to single dose I'd buy a Niche Zero. While you can single dose a Migno
  7. Could I please take these and 1 of the espresso demitasse from your other post? Thanks.
  8. Spotted this: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/315873699606324/ Description states the following: Collection from Stretton on Dunsmore Someone who knows what they’re doing could easily get this working. Any questions let me know. Could be worth a punt if you're nearby!
  9. Great spot! That's got to be a record for the cheapest classic I've ever seen, great for someone based near Glasgow.
  10. Spotted this on Gumtree, worth a punt if you're local: https://www.gumtree.com/p/coffee-machines/gaggia-classic-coffee-machine/1379963547

    I haven't tried any these, but tempted: Origin Los Girasoles or The Lost Barn Uganda Bukonzo Dream (sounds really tasty from the reviews!). If you really want to splash out Colonna have a Colombian which has notes of white peach 🤤
  12. All items are now sold, paid and posted - thank you!
  13. OK, little unsure on pricing as will have to pay postage twice, but how does £15 for the tamper and £20 for the dispersion plate and screen sound inc delivery, paid via PayPal F&F - @Valkyrie88 and @Marcros ?
  14. Offloading a few spares I no longer need, all of these have been used but are in good working condition. The tamper has a few marks near the base and at the top of the handle. Looking for £35 delivered for the lot, but if there's no interest as a group, I'll consider splitting them.
  15. Absolutely no offence taken, MrShades! In fact, I am very pleased that someone has taken the initiative to get up and running sustainably. Initially I was just offloading the few spares I had and it kind of accidentally took off from there, but your design with the included vent tube is much better. At some stage I'll offer the last few I have, but for now, I'd encourage everyone who messaged me with interest to head on over to MrShades' site and pick one up!
