  1. Watched Toy story 3 and 4 last weekend, I genuinely think this is the only collection that has nothing but great films. All 4 films are brilliant, touching stories. Coincidentally they are stunning films to watch in 4K. This weekend I have been continuing to catch up with the Marvel film, I think I maybe the only person in the world that has not watched the last 2 avenger films.....and a few other for that matter. So I watched Captain America Civil war last night and will continue on the marvel universe this evening (maybe). Civil war was good, first time I have watched an action film that showed the fallout to the destruction. Been enjoying watching the marvel films but by christ there are load of em.

  4. So I know it lacks imagination but my current setup it’s machine upgrade arrive. ECM machine paired with eureka grinder. Getting used to it but can’t stop looking at it...... stunning. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. Just visited Bella Barista, just shy of 400 miles to get down, and after speaking to the guys it looks like an ECM is on the horizon for me. The profitec is a great choice but after playing around with the machines with my wife we have decided to go the ECM route. I would defo recommend anyone to visit Bella barista btw, top place.

  7. Many thanks for the opinions thus far, I may well have a drive down to BB next week as I have some time off. It’s a long trip but for should be worth it if I can see the machines in the flesh as it were. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Space wise I can fit my grinder under my wall unit but have to remove my short hopper to fill it. Judging by sizes I “should” be able to fit the machine under the wall units but probably won’t be able to use the cup warmer on any machine and filling them will be a pain.

  10. What can I say, I’m a shallow man and looks are a lot. I jest (a bit). Pressure profiling is not something that interests me as frankly it confuses me and I dread to think what it would do for my wife who won’t use my Rancillia never mind something with pressure profiles. The Bianca intrigued me so made the list. The sage is something that should interest me, it’s feature packed and does what it says on the tin but this is where my shallow side does kick in....... it’s not what I want a coffee machine to look like. The Minima I do like the looks of and I’m reading a bit about this now. Since I started this coffee journey several years ago I have yearned for a Rocket R58 and this is what I have always wanted my coffee machine to look like, but now standing on the precipice of buying one and being analytical about things the Profitecs do sound a better machines for a similar amount. I’m not able to change machines often so I would rather excite all the senses when I have the opportunity. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. So a loyalty bonus from work approaches and I find myself looking to upgrade my ole Rancillio to a dual boiler machine and I am looking at this as the (almost) perfect machine. I’m a fair distance away from Bella Barista or else I would have had a demo by now, so once I commit to a visit there I will be probably buying so until then I’m looking for opinions from owners. The other machines I’m looking at are (obviously) the rocket 58, lellit bianca and the big brother Profitec 700. All dual boilers, frankly none of them would make a bad coffee. So what are the pro’s and cons for this machine. My concerns are size, ease of use and serviceability/reliability. TIA Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. Not tried drinking it after pickled eggs but this another brilliant coffee from Foundry. Not convinced I’m getting the best from it as my shots are still a bit too quick but as an espresso a wonderfully earthy taste that I love in natural coffees and in milk it cuts through with an almost boozy aftertaste.

  14. Been away from the forums for a wee bit, I always have peaks and troughs with forums but the forums do seem different somehow and I don’t just mean aesthetics. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
