  1. That is a cool neat and tidy space for sure, certainly bought a smile to my face, but also made me a little ashamed of how untidy my setup is at the moment ๐Ÿ™ƒ
  2. Hi all, I have just for the first time filmed pulling a shot of espresso on my Iberital IB7 Compact which is a volumetric machine and would appreciate some feedback. I know what mainly matters is the taste in the cup, and to be fair it does taste pretty good as far as my expertise (which is pretty limited compared to most) goes. But what about from a visual aspect ? The beans used are a Brazilian Santos roasted to a medium roast which I roasted myself. Many thanks in advance. Ian
  3. Thanks MediumRoastSteam, much appreciated indeed. The hole in the roast chamber probably wonโ€™t help matters with regards to warranty, that was an experiment to try and get a probe inside to get bean temperature, but alas my efforts were thwarted somewhat. As you rightly say though, they are built like a tank and easily maintained in the event something does go. Many thanks again ๐Ÿ‘
  4. Hi all, I would like to get a rough estimate on how much my modded Gene Cafe CBR-101 is worth please. Purchased in approximately December 2019 from Bella Barista so still under warranty although that may be void due to the modifications. Probably roasted around 15kgs of beans and always used the GC cooling cycle. Many thanks in advance. Ian
  5. Thank you for posting this Jord93, I have been looking for potential bean coolers, I think this could be the one for me ๐Ÿ‘Œ .. Do you know if it comes supplied with a UK 3 pin plug fitted.
  6. Oh okay, thank you, sorry to be a complete muppet, but how does it work and where can I get one from ?
  7. Thanks for the link to the video ๐Ÿ‘ Has this machine become available in the UK now ?
  8. Okay, thatโ€™s perfect, thank you ๐Ÿ™ I will take a look later once the machine has cooled down. Thanks again for your help.
  9. Hi again, apologies for my lack of knowledge, when you refer to the mushroom, what exactly is it and where would it be situated on the machine, on the boiler Iโ€™m guessing ? With regards to sediment, thatโ€™s just me over thinking things, there shouldnโ€™t be any sediment as the water is being filtered .. DOH ๐Ÿ™ƒ
  10. Hi there, Thanks for responding, much appreciated indeed. Sorry for the lack of information, the machine is mains fed with a Britta C150 Quell in-line filter. The water in my area is medium/hard. As for sediment build up etc, I am thinking more on the lines as a preventative measure rather than in a reactive sense. My next question would of been with regards to descaling, and how one would go about doing it considering itโ€™s mains fed. Many thanks again. Ian
  11. Hi all, I currently have a two group machine for home use which has a 10.5 litre boiler. Would I be correct in thinking that it is totally okay to drain the boiler and refil every 4/6 weeks in order to reduce sediment build up at the bottom of the boiler and also to flush out any limescale that may be present ? Many thanks in advance Ian P.s Machine is an Iberital IB7 Compact.
  12. I have definitely considered it, but until I can get a roast consistency that I am happy with and that I can produce time and time again I think it will remain a pipe dream ๐Ÿ˜Š
  13. Glad you got a good outcome and Hasbean stepped up to the plate, thanks for the update ๐Ÿ‘
  14. Oh no, sorry to hear that ๐Ÿ˜ž .. I await with baited breath and anticipation, although doesnโ€™t sound a very good start ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Š
