  1. Yes I agree with you, I think he's going into territory he's probably not the best person for and if he were honest, does not interest him. His "spark" was not there on this video. If people on here who have/had these machines over a long period of time and know them inside out collaborated to share their objective unbiased thoughts , you would may well have the most comprehensive & honest review that you would ever get or need.

    That's a shame.

    It’s so archaic looking, just mahoosive! I’m sure that will be one thing they will want to “streamline “ in the future. It’s like Naomi Campbell being coupled with Sid Large.
  4. I really enjoy Craft House as well.
  5. Yes I agree. We try to have bee friendly plants, never use weed killer or insecticides and try not to be too tidy in the garden. Lots of nettle patches, rotting logs etc. We had a wasps nest in an old playhouse, they never hurt anyone although annoying if you had a sweet drink in the garden and they help with the pests in the vegetable garden. I remember reading that wasps are hugely important and unfortunately their benefits to the balance of nature are rarely appreciated. I’m not trying to sound pious but the more humans can do to help the better.
  6. There's much debate on whether Einstein actually said it but Where would we be without bees? As far as important species go, they are top of the list. They are critical pollinators: they pollinate 70 of the around 100 crop species that feed 90% of the world. Honey bees are responsible for $30 billion a year in crops. That’s only the start. We may lose all the plants that bees pollinate, all of the animals that eat those plants and so on up the food chain. Which means a world without bees could struggle to sustain the global human population of 7 billion. Our supermarkets would have
  7. @dfk41 I'll have to decline your generous offer, unfortunately there was a "raid" last night, no survivors!
  8. Ignorance is bliss but not for the bees
  9. Yes, I thought Honey or Mason bees. All bees , which ever species need protecting. Once bees become extinct mankind will shortly follow.
  10. How come they don't look very alive?!!

    Thanks, yes it's very retro. I wonder how / if it differs to the Robot? The coffee does look good!

    How does the Faema compare to the Flair pro?
  14. Not wanting to hijack this thread but can any one just clarify for me about using the "emergency stop". I know nothing about these machines but may be interested in the future but from what I have read it does say not to use the emergency stop unless its an emergency as it puts undue stress on the components. Is it alright then to use the emergency stop and then follow on with the cooling cycle? It just seems so many people do seem to use it as a norm rather than for its real purpose? Like I say I am not qualified to speak but would be grateful for this to be cleared up for me.
