  1. I got that one from Amazon.de and it fits the Strada basket perfectly Thanks
  2. Thanks...Is it this one? https://www.amazon.de/scarlet-espresso-Präzisions-Trichter-Edelstahl-Siebträger/dp/B07GZW2HC1/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_1?__mk_de_DE=ÅMÅŽÕÑ&keywords=funnel+marzocco+strada+single&qid=1584640621&sr=8-1-fkmr1
  3. Thank you. Was yours for a standard LM single basket or for a strada? I'm not sure the one on ebay works for the Strada... I pm'ed @Nicknak many thanks
  4. Hello everybody, I have a 7gr Strada single basket and I am after a metal funnel that fits well so I can use my 71mm tamper without making a mess. I'm not interesting in cutting a plastic bottles and all that, I'm just after a metal funnel that fits well. I found this on ebay but I want to make sure it fits the Strada before I buy. Anyone went the same route? https://www.ebay.de/itm/143307995564?ul_noapp=true
  5. I mainly use dark roasted Italian blends, they tend to stick unless RDT. I don’t get edge channeling but only because I do a lot of tapping and prepping. Also, when using the single basket the ridge doesn’t seal the edge of the basket because the edge of the cup hits the bottom of the basket, leaving the ridge 2-3 mm from the edge of the basket
  6. What I don’t like: the dosing cup. It’s a great idea but badly executed. The “lip” that goes inside the portafilter is far too long, leaving a deep gap at the edge of the puck. The ridge fills with coffee which sticks inside and even tapping doesn’t help. It could be so much better (see the Acaia small size).
  7. The answer is 3A or 5A should be fine: https://www.electricalsafetyfirst.org.uk/guidance/safety-around-the-home/plugs-and-fuses/ Plugs for appliances rated up to about 700 watts should have a 3-amp fuse (coloured red). For example: 3A Fuse – Table lamp, standard lamp, television, video, computer, mixer, blender, fridge, freezer, power drill, jig saw, soldering iron. Plugs for appliances rated between about 700 watts and 3000 watts (the maximum rating of a wall socket) should be fitted with a 13-amp fuse (coloured brown).
  8. Should be 120 rpm for the monolith and 330 for the Niche
  9. No, apparently with conicals the size of the burrs doesn’t influence taste as much as with the flats, BUT the Niche runs at more than twice the speed as the MC3 so I guess any difference in taste might come from this
  10. thanks, will ask in the kafatek forum
  11. yes of course, but I find the 13A that normally comes with the plug a bit useless, I can't recall ever seeing one blown...But then again, modern electrical devices rarely need it
  12. I was thinking, the normal 13A fuse in the UK plug seems a bit too high...Did anyone replace it with say a 5A one, just to better protect the motor?
  13. Same dilemma here. I have a Niche and I prefer dark roasts. Happy with it (apart from the dosing cup which could be better). My feel is that the MC3 will be similar in terms of performance, but hopefully stronger, better built and more durable. If the coffee tastes marginally better, that's a bonus. Anyway, to answer the question I decided to get a MC3 and find out. So I'll get back to you in about June when I get it delivered.....
  14. Where is this? Is it within coffeforums?
