  1. @skylark not going to be much help here I'm a newb, prioritised getting the Zero for general use then looking to invest in machine. For now it's straight forward with moka pot! My assumption is if the water is purified and cleaned then it would be ok to leave in coffee machine for another day? But I imagine I would discard if left for longer period. I haven't got that far in my research tbf so will be good to hear how others have been using it in their set ups. Hope your zero arrives soon too! 😊
  2. Received and doing the initial. Can't wait to put to use! Thanks everyone! πŸ™Œ
  3. Hmm bit annoying, made sure I stayed home today because DPD emailed yesterday saying to expect it, not heard a peep. Hopefully there's no issues with the order and it arrives in the morning [emoji18] Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  4. @ArkellvsPressdram Happy to hear you got yours and that you're making full use of it already! I'm still waiting for DPD to tell me when/if they are even delivering today [emoji849] Even downloaded their app just to make sure I get their notifications [emoji1787] [emoji1696] Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  5. Yes me too, tommorow's the big day!! Thanks all, props to @caipiao for organising.
  6. Just to let the group know I've received my email from Osmio and replied back with my details. Going for black and doing the extended warranty. Excited!!!! πŸ˜„
  7. @skylark haha was being lazy, thanks for the info!
  8. Wooo thanks for organising @caipiao 😊
  9. I would be curious to know cost for the extension too.. 2 more to go 😊🀞
  10. Hahaha I wish! Yes just the shower head is coming on Monday. It's like a little treat before the zero πŸ˜‚
  11. I see, mines is just an over tub shower and needed a new shower head anyway. Liked the look of the osmio too. It's coming on Monday, quite excited to give it a go.
  12. Ah @DavecUK I went with the showerhead but I have a feeling you're going to give a good reason for the inline adaptor? ..... πŸ™ˆ let me know, maybe it's not too late to switch it lol.
  13. Ah was really hoping someone would give the low-down, alas, no one seems to have fallen for it like me haha - I've taken the plunge and just ordered it. Will maybe do a review if its of any interest to others. πŸ™ƒ
  14. Hi, Also adding my name to the list! Thanks! 1. caipiao 2. Kannan 3. Slammy 4. 5. 6. Please do not add your name to the list unless you are able to pay as soon as you receive the invoice, as it could hold up getting the Osmio being sent to the other buyers.
  15. I have seen a lot of posts about the Osmio Zero, which I have now decided to purchase rather than an undercounter system. The Zero will solve drinking, cooking and probably some cleaning issues, but I need something for my eczema prone skin, I am really intrigued by their Vitamin C shower filter (they have a shower head too). Just wondering if anyone has tried it? Thoughts? 😊
  16. Ah yes, good point! Ok Zero it is, thanks for your replies
  17. @AndyDClements I did not know about coldbrew concentrate! At the moment I'm using moka pot, I usually have remaining coffee so i use that for my cold coffees. Good to know though, I will read up a little more as sounds like an option for bigger batches when i have visitors. Thanks! Bubble tea comes in lots of variations, fruit teas, herbal tea, milk tea, coffees.... the "bubble" aka boba/tapioca pearls make it different from the usual iced teas and coffees. Just bear in mind when drinking through the large straw, the tapioca balls will get sucked up and surprise you πŸ˜ƒ its fine just chew
  18. Hahaha i am indeed like a child! Is it because, even with being able to store the waste water, the other issue with connection to mains is just that? connecting directly to the pipes i guess gives reduced control of the water quality? Even if it is going through a similar filtering system as the Zero, there will alway be an increase in contamination direct from pipe?
  19. Thanks for taking the time to do this write up Dave, and following up - Love a good bar chart 😁 I've just bought my first home and have been looking into water systems, and this may just be the answer!! I noticed that Osmio also have a Fusion version which plugs into main water supply, I emailed them to check if it was possible to capture the waste water, as your article has highlighted just how much the other systems dispose of, they said it was possible, probably not the neatest set up, but I'm considering it as a half way for convenience (being lazy and not having to top up the ta
  20. Hi, Its heating up! β˜€οΈ The weather has been lovely, and whilst I still have my usual morning coffee, by the afternoon i need a cold pick me up and one of my favourite refreshing drinks is bubble tea, most shops do an iced coffee version so I thought i'd give it a go myself and I found a super easy ready-in-5-mins boba, will add a pic. What are your fave caffeinated summer drinks? My first post here..... and it might be the last if people really hate the idea of putting chewy bubbles into their coffee πŸ˜‚
  21. @Brewtime I went through a similar dilemma, I was gifted a 3-4 cup bialetti, I didn't realise I was technically drinking 4 shots, I'm usually the only one drinking coffee, so when I realised this I tried to put less grind in, but that messed up the strength and taste! I'm now filling up the basket level again and just have half in the morning, and cool the remainder for ice coffee like @ChilledMatt 's well caffeinated daughter πŸ˜† . Now I can start to focus on getting a good consistent taste. When using moka, whats the go to for milk? I have a plunge metal jug thing, which gets very
  22. Oh nice tip, I'm going to give this a go!
  23. Thanks for the recommendations have just ordered San Fermin and Strong hold. Offer seems to still be running but with JULY20 code 😁
  24. Great videos, making me think twice about rushing to get a machine, maybe I need to experiment more with my moka pot first... I do enjoy the process, I will make some adjustments and see if I can improve ☺️
