  1. Ceado Naked is indeed non too shabby in the visual department and the performance is pretty awesome too[emoji1303] https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20201115/38fa429cfb8c9176daed6c121784f8f9.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20201115/e6ae972e5e8d188f2b728bdcfde74cb0.jpg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  3. You may find they are replicas of the original EK cast burr geometry as opposed to being cast. I’m not 100% certain but that’s my understanding. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Lovely. I think I’m missing out on the Thuya train[emoji57] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. As long as it includes the art that gets the most laughs[emoji57] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. yay, but I do love an optical viewfinder too. However latest digital are getting betterer and betterer
  7. My Leica Q produced wonderful pictures with a quality of their own. I still think you can tell a Leica picture until you process them. I'm also a big believer that MP is not everything, some of my best photo's at A3 are off my old D2H, a camera chastised for it's noise performance if you got it wrong (which is true). Is the SL not right up there? I eschewed digital in the end and have gone back to my phone + A Leica M5 film camera and my RolleiFlex F3.5 TLR with both waist level and prisms finders. I could look through the ground glass screen of the waist level all day and not take a
  8. @ooglewoogle Why sad? I don't like people being sad!
  9. Yep😊 for the back piece of zebrano that I routed the electrics and plumbing through 😉
  10. Well, I’m sure I’ll get better set up but, wow. I’m actually even more pleased in the flesh, which is always nice. I appreciate the comments, was a bit nervous it could be too ‘over the top’ but it’s not in place. its quieter than I imagined, not sure why, and even more detailed. Paddle feels really nice and tactile. Relieved the grinder has headroom even with a Slayer, slightly tighter grind than LR but not too much, certainly with Square Mile Sweetshop Pulled 8 or 9 shots this eve. Didn’t drink them all of course but all tested. First 7 were grades of nice, balanced but
  11. I'm stuck on calls but managed to get it in and plumbed, heating but not set up yet.. Better pictures in the next couple of hours. The excitement is killing me😁
  12. @KTD I acknowledge your bagsy, but you may have a long wait 😉 My wall has a spot allocated for that (Its pretty heavy!)...Seattle - Australia - Germany - UK!
  13. Mini update...as I have a conf call and can't get to this for another 2 hours
  14. Ok. We have an update for those following the journey. We have ‘coffee bar’ progress ✅ and the Expobar has kept me in Espresso this last week. Oh, yeah, and Buffy arrives tomorrow 😁 I just have to try and get out of those pesky online meetings!
  15. Shipping update. It hasn’t moved at all, sat somewhere in Germany😐 On the positive side fitting shelves Tuesday. Trying to find Some NuovaPoint Palermo’s. [edit:found some😊]
  16. Bumper day it seems It looks a lot but I swop monthly ‘shops’ with a fellow enthusiast end we work a few weeks ahead for degassing!
  17. And more postie stuff to age for a bit whilst I wait for Buffy, probably at least until back end of next week🙈
  18. It is indeed Banksia. You can also get them ‘raw’ Banksia so with the depressions not filled/stabilised with resin or other colours of resin. as importantly, the tamper/basket combo has made a real difference. of course any basket that has the right tolerance eg matched Vst would also be similarly effective.
  19. Tho my art is rubbish, but my texture is bonza👍🏻
  20. I know not the same but when I got the LR with a 4 hole I was terrible, previously used to 1 hole. Trawled YouTube etc and focussed, got it, never used the 2 hole tip. Picked up the QM (2 hole) could steam to save my life again! I found the Cremina very good an intuitive to steam. So I’m confident you’ll get it🙏🏻
  21. That kind of external discolouration I had on my old Alex single boiler just from the spitting of the anti vac valve. It wasn't reflective of the internal condition. (though it does look rather more substantial than mine was around the fittings. BB still do Izzo parts and will get them for you unless thats changed in the last 2-3 months. I wanted some parts for my Alex at the time and also a spare Alex MkII. Actually I still do for the spares/repair (or the chap that bought the Alex does); a top panel and the cup tray, I may look for another spares or repair machine on here and ask
  22. I am loving the KTH stuff right now. Origin also some great (if expensive, but not necessarily bad value) coffees. The forum has introduced me to lots of other roasters I'm looking to try over the coming months. Its good.
  23. So the shipping challenges were overcome but the driver got poorly, so, today, and not Monday, It has officially left the ‘shop’! Now I watch the tracking updates...
  24. Thanks to @MildredMthese arrived today. And a nice note and key ring too. They're lovely. The worktop is still empty though. Shipping progress of Buffy is slow...
