  1. Sounds like the family member has hit the jackpot with all that delicious coffee on tap 😁 Hope you get the house situation sorted mate.
  2. Hey Jake. It's been a while mate (too long!). I've been waiting for you to get 2 different filters with my kind of tasting notes and low and behold, you currently have 3! Bravo. Picked up a key of the Colombian Novo Futuro. This was a no brainer for me. Tasting notes are right up my street, I've really enjoyed a couple of your Colombian's before and with it being low stock I thought I'd better get in there. I was really torn between your Ethiopian and new Honduran (Maria has gone?!). Macerated naturals do make me a little nervous as sometimes I find the funk off the scale but I've a
  3. Might be a false economy in the end matey. There will be a market crash at some point where depreciation on anything other than electric will make values fall through the floor. With depreciation being the highest cost of vehicle ownership, I don't fancy being a victim to it! When it's time to change....if the revolution hasn't happened yet it might be wise go lease.
  4. I've never been into supercars, classic cars or little sporty cars. I do like Bentleys but at heart I am a BMW man. I've had all the cars I wanted to except one - M5. I've had 330d, 535d, currently a 7 series. All fantastic cars. I went for a 7 series over M5 because I always thought an M5 couldn't put it's power down in the wet (well....knew, not thought) and that lack of practicality doesn't work for me. Now that the latest model is 4WD I'll probably have one next. The problem is that the 7 is so comfortable I think it's turned me into a boring driver, so the enthusiast in me may be go
  5. lol yeah I figured it was job related. ❤️ NHS.
  6. I never thought you were that old mate 😂
  7. I get through less than a kilo a month now days so probably figures out around the £20-£25 mark.

    RIP Captain Tom

    We brought his book for our little'uns this Christmas. We'd already read it but had it out again on Tuesday evening. A true inspiration to the nation.
  9. I brought an Epson et-2711 last lockdown as we found ourselves doing a lot of printing for my daughter's home schooling. I got a mega bargain of £100 for a refurbished one that on inspection had printed about 4 pages in it's life. It's crazy cheap to print....CRAZY. Paper literally costs more than the ink now for genuine epson ink. The et-2711 isn't the best printer in the world (lacks duplex and only 100 page feed) but for home use it's an absolute no brainer and it's over the moon with this purchase. It's still a thing. Fortunately Youtube is your friend 😄 There's cracked software t
  10. Right? Anyone would think we're talking about ticktok here!
  11. Hoffman was a big influence on getting me into coffee. He's not just 'another man'. The guy has been world barista champion as well as setting up SM so he has a lot of knowledge and experience of not just coffee but the entire industry. Moreover, I find his videos entertaining. This is a new age of social media, vlogging, youtubing etc. Coffee isn't a 50+ game anymore, there's a completely new audience. I didn't even know there was anything other than nescafe's instant shite until my late 20's. Had Youtube been trending 10 years earlier, I have no doubt I'd have got into in my late teens
  12. Bargain. I'd grab that if I were you @Walker29 - very fair price imo.
  13. Often chocolatey.....dunno if they would naturally be enough funk for the funk master! I guess you won't know until you try 😁
