  1. Hey @DevonStan, Just ordered some from him. I am in the Newton Abbot area too. He mentioned someone ordering from Ogwell, was that you? Did you leave the beans to rest for a while after ordering? Mine were roasted today, so I'm going to give them a few days to settle.
  2. Had a look on their twitter. Seems lots of people questioning them about their orders, although they do seem to get back in contact with them eventually. They seem a bit like a middle man or reseller only which would be fine if their service was top notch I guess.
  3. Ok you got a deal. Shall we move to PM?
  4. Ok, another idea... would you take £600. I'm willing to the do the drive there and back today or tomorrow. Sam
  5. Lovely machine, but just too far to drive from Devon and also lockdown coming up in 2 days. You wouldn't consider courier would you? Sam
  6. Thank you for the replies! That coffee does sound rather nice! I may just have to try it! On another note, I think I might prefer coffees from the African continent vs south America, but I'm not certain on the just yet.
  7. Ok, so I currently have a Eureka Mignon + gaggia classic (with PID mod). I aim around 16g of ground coffee, with an extraction of around 25s (which determines my grind setting). Mostly the espresso shots taste bitter or burnt so I often just stay clear of them altogether. The milk added softens it and allows me to actually taste the coffee. I guess the taste I would prefer would be more along the lines of sweeter and softer. I went with the rocket espresso from extract as I had it in a local restaurant who use that set of beans. I do get similar results to theirs but sometimes there is that
  8. To be honest I'm not too sure of different tastes but I think the rocket espresso was a dark roast but not 100%. The drinks I make are usually flat whites/ lattes as I have never got an espresso to taste nice to drink straight (could be down to my skills though).
  9. No I haven't. Do you have experience of it?
  10. Nice setup! I'm still on my gaggia classic but I'm already getting the upgradeitus! I remember those big grinders from my days as a barista. Currently rocking a mignon specialita. It is nice and quiet but noise isn't really an issue for me.
  11. I'm currently looking for a new coffee to try. I've been using the rocket espresso from extract coffee roasters in Bristol mainly for their price. I'm looking at paying around £20 for 1kg as this seems to be the amount I get through in a month and seems like a nice price point. Anyone have any ideas? Rexz
