  1. This looks like a very generic website with little information, and the company given in the contact page was incorporated very recently so there are no reviews on the usual sites. There are two threads on hotukdeals about it, with some saying that they or their partners have ordered from there. None have returned to say that the product arrived. https://www.hotukdeals.com/discussions/has-anyone-use-used-wwwhomeandkitchenshopcouk-3601101 https://www.hotukdeals.com/discussions/home-and-kitchen-shop-3600227 EDIT: Oh, there actually are a couple of reviews on Trust Pilot. Both are
  2. They arrived yesterday. Thanks for organising & roasting - I'm looking forward to brewing the one on the left tomorrow after finishing off Square Mile's Santa Rosa 1900 today.
  3. Cutting it pretty close, but I've just put in order #1125. Looking forward to my first coffee from you & Crankhouse both!
  4. Finished mine a little while ago. Absolutely lovely coffee, with an aroma that is just sweetness incarnate.
  5. Not sure if you've already bought it, but when I was looking at it, it seemed the best price was from Colonna (the creator's own roastery) - which has free delivery and a very generous 25% discount with the code LOCKDOWN25.
  6. Can I ask what % the discount code is for that tier? I see he recently (20th October) made separate posts with discounts for the low and middle tiers. Also, he says 'couple of codes'; so is there more than a Square Mile discount? TIA.
  7. Although many might agree that it would be nice in theory to easily see centralised, crowd-sourced notes and reviews, I wonder if you might get a better picture of whether people would actually go out of their way to use it if you instead asked if people on here have much regard for the already-existing reviews and ratings on some roasters' websites? Would they actually decide what to buy based on what some random person - who could be preparing and consuming the coffee in god-knows-what way - says, versus what the roaster claims? Obviously, roasters can misrepresent their offerings, but
  8. The auction is over. It looks like Square Mile is the only British company to have won, with them paying $66.50/lb for 396 lbs of an 89.6-scoring lot.
  9. I only have a V60 and Aeropress, and had these beans in July. I don't remember anything like banana (I'd guess that's at least partly a texture-influenced note in espresso/milk drinks?), but the rum raisin was a constant and the bubblegum notes came through like crazy once I ground fine enough.
  10. I came across the SCAE's water chart document, which explains some of the chemistry and features the recommendations from Water for Coffee prominently. It's obviously much shorter than Water for Coffee, but it seems very practical.
  11. We had the same call for the first time today, too. Must be busy! It was a little more realistic for us, since we'd made a purchase which came with free next day delivery a few weeks ago. Given how pushy Amazon can be, it wouldn't have surprised me at all if we'd been entered into a free trial despite declining it at checkout. The same logic of Amazon not reminding us - and certainly not over the phone where they can be sure we knew it! - meant that the call was ended before getting to a human. From reports online, it looks like we're in line to receive many more of the same calls fr
  12. BWT only gave a range of 15 - 18 d total hardness for their expected capacity. Because my water is softer than that, and because of the 2 month regulation fitting perfectly, I figured it was fair to compare that to the range ZeroWater gave for my actual hardness - since it would be favourable to the ZeroWater. It's great to hear that you're able to get so much use from a single ZeroWater filter compared to what even they advertise. I was going off anecdotes like this (and this was posted just a few hours after my initial comment in this thread) on the forum, and reviews on Lakeland (while
  13. At 201 - 300 TDS, ZeroWater gives a filter expectancy of 55 to 95 litres. At 15 - 18 degrees total hardness, BWT gives a filter expectancy of 120 litres. (Whether these expectancies are accurate is a different matter, but I can't really rely on much else. Does anyone have any experience of both in real life?) Simplifying my water need to 2 litres per day, a year's supply of BWT would be 6 filters (£33.99 on their site), whereas ZeroWater would be 14 filters at their lowest given capacity (£170 on their site) or 8 at their highest (£89.99). Jugs are fairly equally priced,
