  1. What I PM'ed, so people can see. "There are a lot of different long aeropress but the one I like and use for this one is: Niche grinder setting - 15. 15g of coffee Hot water straight off the boil Inverted aeropress - fill w coffee Start timer. Saturate grinds. Stir vigorously. Wait 30-45secs. Then fill nearly to the top. Stir vigorously again. Fill the remaining space. Add cap. Wait 10mins. Turn upright onto a cup. Take plunger out and let it naturally drip through. Take about 10mins more. Total time
  2. would be interesting to see what you end up going with? Update us when you can. Ive really never had a sub (except LSOL). But the dog and hat one is tempting me (locking wallet away).
  3. Still have some left of this one, trying to get through it before the next offering. Struggled with v60 but getting some good results with a long aeropress recipe (maybe try that if your struggled like me with the v60).

    Set of Scales

    I brought an identical set of AliExpress for £9, but theres only a few pounds in it.
  5. If they have an option for non Royal Mail and your running out of beans I would do that. If you look at the Dec LSOL that was a 1st class RM delivery. Some got it next day but some had to wait weeks until they landed (I think their is one poor person still waiting). Also have a look at the Royal Mail website. They have an update list of places having staffing issues due to covid. P.s Merry Christmas everyone Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Thanks @Daren ; and @Hairy_Hogg ; for organising once again. Got mine yesterday. Surprised no one has had a sneaky v60/cupping yet?! Might have one myself bit later today Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I would have to agree with what everyone has said before. Laying out more money up front you will save money in the future. Have to say for me it’s been a journey to get to my final espresso machine. Looking back I don’t know how I ever had a bean to cup machine. But without that step I wouldn’t be enjoying coffee as much as I am now. So if the budget is where it is get what you can afford and except that it’s not going to be the best (or even close) but it will start you on your journey. If I could tell my past self anything (about coffee): get a decent hand grinder + aeropress or v60
  8. Found this one a bit hard to get somewhere I like. Like others getting chocolate but getting a bit of orange [emoji521] too. Definitely grind finer on this one. Brazil/Colombian - actually would be shocked if it wasn’t from South America. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I did get the meross first but didn’t play nice with the tp-link mesh network I’ve got. Ended up getting Kasa and not had a problem with it. The meross are cheaper so I would get them and see if they play nice with your network, and return them if they don’t. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Any Gamers?

    Been checking out some reviews today. Xbox has surprised me in how cool, with low noise, it is. Noise of the previous generation of consoles does my nut it. [emoji91][emoji1645] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Any Gamers?

    Definitely will be getting the ps5 but not sure when. The exclusives, the ssd setup and the bigger heat sink (thermals will be handled better) sells it for me over the Xbox. Have to say the Xbox looks nicer but I always have my console hidden away anyway. Main reason I’m not getting it now is kids restrict playing time as is.

  15. I always get itchy about the payment (that I’m gonna miss the deadline). Can I just send it now? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
