  1. No. I thought about it. Do they need finer still! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I couldn’t get what I wanted out of the Rave Burundi no matter what I tried. However... the Honduras Con Clave del Sole is amazing and I be just ordered another KG! must be my 3rd... Point is that grinds somewhat finer the Burundi with my set up (Ceado E37Z or MC1) and the Londinium for a nice extraction, could be worth a try as a test. I haven’t come across anything else requiring a finer grind for espresso even amongst light beans Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Currently wondering the impact of the end of transition on transactions and if this leads to an earlier decision..tariffs, vat treatment etc.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I can neither confirm nor deny that this forms part of our discussions or that my wife is considering legal action[emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. yes its very dangerous🙈 so much shiny. I am also acutely aware the result doesn't make the coffee any better😉 It is all part of the experience for me I must confess.
  6. @MildredMNot helping my sanity with the pictures Frank keeps sending me!
  7. Doing these calcs right now as you know thats where I'm heading... Currently running at 3.5k to sort water, water pressure (3-5bar input) and then suitable size set up and plumb in BEFORE I can deploy a Slayer!
  8. I found a torque or spring tamper did improve my consistency. I personally now don't tamp after levelling I just grind accordingly to get the yield I want. with a ridged basket you can see if you have tamped level. Also based on eye from the sides of the temper in my view so personally I'm one or the other not both.
  9. @RobW do you mean 'High uniformity' as opposed to low? My Ceado has high uniformity so a very narrow band of particle size and very few fines, resulting in this 'EK' like extraction ( I haven't used an EK its just what I'm informed by those that have) whereby it speeds up very quickly towards the end of a shot, I assumed perhaps wrongly) that the Max was similar. It does also result in some very long PI times with my Londinium LR for target shot times of 30--35s for a 16.5g dose > 33g yield. With the occasional very long extraction and PI that turns into a nice surprise in flavour
  10. I now only level, tho until I get a second leveller I do use my tamper in the smaller, std LR, tapered 18g basket with 16.5 g dose and some nutation but very low pressure (not close to my torque tamper I used to use) In the IMS 18/20 flat side basket for which I dose 22g I use the leveller and that’s it, basically under its own weight.

  11. Have you access to an alternative grinder to benchmark the bean with? Does seem like a problem. I can choke the Londinium with masses of adjustment left on my C#%*do (not sure I should mention it in this thread[emoji6]) But the same with my (ex Mildred) conic. I’ve had to coursen that off quite a lot. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Often at 15s to 20s PI here with a 30s extraction, typically between 3.5 and 5 bar depending on bean. Higher for the lighter roasts. I typically grind for a target 34g in 30s from 16.5g dose. The PI is what it is so to speak. Taste then adjust. Had some really long extractions at the 40s mark and still good. Got to go with the bean[emoji1303] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I do get that but once inserted it sits without moving with the funnel. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. My Londinium PF fits like a glove. Added a vibration damper at the back use a funnel and golden[emoji1303] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I have no issues at all with my MC1. No RDT. Just a good tap/puff on the intake manifold[emoji4] but it does benefit from WDT. It doesn’t clog in the chute. Chute fully cleared out without needing a tap. But med/dark (not externally oily) beans should will have some surface tension effects I expect. My Ceado E37Z Naked does need RDT but does not need WDT (although I do it as it is my workflow and takes just a few seconds) due to its grind size uniformity. Obviously one is a flat and the other a conical. Clearly the beans make Quite a difference. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
