  1. View Advert Genuine Libbey Duratuff Cortado Glasses - New I got frustrated at the price of these glasses from Amazon and my inability to source from other UK retailers, so I imported a case of them from the US and now have some spares to sell on. The Libbey Gibraltar glass is the original and the most popular glass for Cortados. It looks and feel great, with octagonal, panelled sides and holds around 130ml. It might look like a shot glass but it's actually 3 1/8" tall, 3" across at the top and 2 1/8" across at the base. It feels hefty, weighing in at 249g (not 127g as stated on Amazon). The heavy construction keeps the drink nice and hot if you preheat the glass. The special process applied to the top portion of the glass increases its resistance to mechanical and thermal shock, so it has great durability and safety. The lo-res pic with the Cortado is from Amazon (due to my current inability to pour decent latte art on my Cortado). £6 each or 4 for £20. You are welcome to collect (RG24) or I will carefully pack them up and post at your cost. Royal Mail small parcel is only £3.00 (or £4.00 if you want it tracked).

  3. I am a convert. I had to mess around with the preinfusion on my machine as I don't have any other way to achieve the 6 bar pressure. Definitely not one for a naked PF. MESSY!
  4. Hi. If you're still working up a list of people to join the collective, I'd be keen. I'm based in Basingstoke.
  5. Well, I finally got the Ceado bellows a few weeks ago. I used it with the first part I made (see previous page) but I decided to use up another big chunk of my time making a different design. It's no better, I just prefer the look. By the way, if anyone plans to order the bellows from espresso solutions, BEWARE! I did not enjoy my first (and last) experience with them. Constant incorrect expected delivery dates, took almost 2mths to come but the worst thing was that when it did finally arrive, they demanded more money. Their explanation: As per our terms and conditions, we reserve the right to change the prices at any time without notifying you. Wow! Btw - lIst price is not the £45.90 + vat I paid at the time of order - it's now £80.27 + vat!
  6. I have absolutely no issues with grind consistency when single dosing. I'm in the middle of a project to add the original Ceado bellows (which is taking ages to arrive) to a custom made adaptor cast in resin which turns to adjust the grind setting too. Here it is with my old 'icing bottle' bellows
  7. All sorted. Can you please move this to sold.
  8. Bought 2 months ago. Hardly used. I've started dosing 15g and this just doesn't suit me now. Includes all the original packaging and certificate of analysis. £22 posted.
  9. Home made from a used makeup container, some vape wire and some hot glue.
  10. They seem to have set it up wrong. The 'right' knob is on the left 😁 Lovely looking machine. Enjoy!
  11. Haha. Thanks. I don't quite have the grinder situation covered as well as you do by the looks of your signature 🤪
  12. I'd bet I spent way more time designing and making the part than you spent on your overtime shift. Actually it was quite good fun and satisfying to see the result sitting on the grinder. Still waiting for the bellows to arrive to see it all together.
  13. With both of us having been perfectly happy with a De'Longhi bean to cup machine for 15 years, I convinced my wife a year ago that we should upgrade. Unlike me, she's not the slightest bit interested in learning how to make coffee, so the ideal machine was the Oracle. In my humble opinion, it's a very capable espresso machine that lets one person have her beans in the hopper and allow the auto-dosing and auto-tamping to do its thing, and lets the other use an older model Ceado E37S (modded for single dosing) to turn a drink into a hobby. One day (maybe) it'll be a Decent DE1Pro but for now, it's the perfect compromise.
  14. I've ordered the bellows (£62 inc. shipping costs) and have plans to fabricate a part that will allow me to use it without spending the additional £240 or so on the other parts listed above. I'll try to remember to take pics along the way and will post the results.
  15. Ok, I'll take it for £160 posted. PM me the details
  16. Hi. I'd take this for £150 inc shipping. David
  17. Do you have a plan to 3D print the support? Being a luddite, I'm wondering whether it could be crafted from wood 😁
  18. It's the one in your pic coloured with black marker pen!
  19. These are too small to fit into the rubber bit on their own. The corrugated bottles are great though. I found it fits into the chef's squeezy bottle I was using to begin with just brilliantly. 20210128_225129.mp4
  20. I use mine as a single doser and run a small handful of dry white rice through it a couple of times every now and then (followed by 5-10g of beans) to remove any buildup. Not sure if it would be effective in removing the oily residue in yours but wouldn't hurt to try if you're about to open it up to clean it manually anyway. If nothing else, it's very satisfying to do, as the ground rice flows out beautifully 😂
  21. How are you getting on with your VST basket? I'm planning on getting an 18g ridgeless to use with the sage bottomless portafilter Santa is bringing me. I don't want it falling out every time I knock out the puck. You having any issues with that?
  22. Looks great. It seems so easy to set up an E37s as a single doser, I wonder what all the debate is about 😊
  23. Looks good. The advantage of the bottle is that it's exactly 58mm wide, so creates a seal that directs the air through the grind chamber. Not sure if these would do the same. Could be worth a shot.
