  1. Does anybody know where i can lay my hands on a Medium Coffee Gator canister in stainless steel?
  2. Very true, I think I’ll leave it the garage until I get bored of walking around it then pop it on eBay no reserve collection only
  3. Indeed it’s always been extreme over kill in my kitchen for my daily couple of flat whites although it was a great bit of kit whenever I had a few people over for dinner So with that said I presume I’m looking at a value of around £100 - £150?
  4. Also I am assuming that I need to tamper after using the leveller or does the leveller compress the grind as it levels?
  5. Ok folks, what I want to know is - whats the difference between a £94 Leveller - https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B082PJX4MR/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_7?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&psc=1 and a £20 Leveller - https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B081YY9VB6/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_10?smid=A1ZVSCLIKY9SLW&psc=1 and more importantly will I notice any difference between the two apart from looks and design, in other words will they both do the required job equally as well please bare in mind that I'm a home using espresso machine novice not a full-time high level barista connoisseur
  6. also worth a read https://www.growveg.co.uk/guides/a-common-sense-guide-to-using-coffee-grounds-in-the-garden/
  7. @ Group Gaggia TD TE - Old but Gold! Made a great coffee up until recently when it suddenly started leaking from a couple of internal hoses - probably my fault as i have been using it daily for the past 5 years from extremely hard London tap water, i bit the bullet and bought a new machine and now its taking up space in the garage - so the question is Whats it Worth?
  8. Thanks - I’ve managed to track one down
  9. Any ideas on where to lay my hands on a Mignon Specialita 16CR (Chrome finish) ?
  10. Hi Andrew, I’ve just purchased a Fracino Classico via coffeebean (one of the forum members) for a great price and delivered within a couple of days even in the midst of lockdown, couldn’t be happier with it, I was previously using a commercial 2 group Gaggia which came out of a restaurant I used to have so I was particularly concerned about going from a commercial machine to a light commercial/domestic machine. Have a search for them on the forum and I think you’ll find most people who own them love them and speak highly of them hope that helps
  11. I’ve tried moving the flap, making several different ones from tin cans at varying distances away from the shoot they either create static or make the clumping worse I have also tried removing the flap completely and deflecting the grinds with a piece of foil however it still takes roughly the same time to grind 18 grams
