  1. 😂😂 that’s for my wife’s drip filter, she doesn’t do grinding (you can take that in any context you want too 😂) Just ordered a Eureka Mignon Specialita to compliment it too 👍

  4. Afternoon coffee people, I’m in need of some help in which direction to go with upgrading my grinder. I’ve recently purchased a Nuova Simonelli Oscar II, so now I’m on the hunt to upgrade to something that will pair up nicely. Currently using a La Spaziale Top and have a budget of around £300. I would prefer it to be on demand but would not be fully put off if not. Happy with a second hand machine that needs some work or tlc to bring it back to its best. Just after a great grinder that is consistent and can be sufficiently adjusted so to get the best out of my current bean selection.
  5. Thanks, looks great but collection only which is a bit of an issue at the mo. Much appreciate you sending me the link though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. Morning all selling my Gaggia MDF grinder due to needing more space in the house, oh and the wife’s onto me again [emoji849] Well maintained and in great condition. Could deliver locally or meet somewhere (following Covid guidelines) or post if necessary at a further cost https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20201117/ec44b14f436bb414827786b308fd0b4f.jpg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Basically, it's a complicated issue. Milk, fruit juice, pop, yogurt, ice cream, cakes, hummus, meat all come packed in plastic...if you are as observant in your purchasing of all your groceries, as much as you are with water, then fair play....I take my hat off to you. I totally agree but we do try and do our bit like using refillable glass milk bottles from our local farm and purchasing meat from our local butchers. Anyways it was only an opinion and like I said earlier I’m being a total hypocrite really! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I hate to be a burden on this post but if there’s one thing I dislike about the whole coffee worlds ethos is that the water needs to be either filtered or free of contaminants. Yes I totally agree that it may make the coffee taste better and will lengthen the life of our machines and so forth but what are we doing for the planet, buying water in plastic bottles or plastic covered filters? Just to clarify and before everyone goes mad, I am too, using filters and so I’m being hypocritical really but it’s just something that does really bug me. So my question is (or questions as it maybe), wil

  11. Afternoon peeps Looking for some input and potential guidance. Having only recently moved over to the Oscar from a Gaggia Classic, I’m fnding a few differentials (obviously I was always going to) I am finding my espresso is tasting fine but not 100% happy on the timing of it etc. So to get to the point I’m putting 18g in and getting 36g out but it’s taking 32secs to do so. Not too far away you say but it takes at least 12secs before the pouring starts. I know the Oscar has a built in pre-infusion set at 1 sec but to not start pouring until after 12secs?? Is this going to effect thin

  13. James As much as I’d love to spend £1000 I don’t think my marriage would last too long after [emoji23] although she is very forgiving! I will take a look at the Mazzer Royals though, cheers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
