  1. Lol. I know the feeling of throwing lots of coffee down the sink!! thanks for the comment! adam
  2. Thanks everyone for your help really appreciated and also given me lots of thought for new items too! Adam
  3. to be fair, it tasted quite good, much better than the 7 second ones we had yesterday 😄 a grinder is on the list for sure, if anything i think I'm reading too much, keep changing my mind.... as for upgrading the basket, are the items currently for sale any good for me? thanks Adam
  4. Hi, thanks for the replies. so, I have been back to Waitrose this morning after the coffee from the coffee shop was also coming through far too quickly ( 8 seconds in the pressurised basket) for 17/18/19g I have discovered that illy preground in the pressurised basket gives something like normal results (17.5g 29 seconds to 35g) I think I’m still a bit worried I must have thrown away about £15 worth of coffee in the past few days! Lol. The freshly ground in the shop was no different to the shop brought in terms of tamper, I am currently using the plast
  5. thanks for the replies - I am using the 'little black thing' you put under the filter so that should all be working fine - It is very odd, got fresh grinds today from coffee shop and same results, its almost like there is too much pressure? Adam
  6. Morning all, having recently recieved my Gaggia Classic pro we have been experimenting a lot... so naturally have run out of coffee. no bother, not ideal but can can still work with shop brought and use the pressurised basket. This is where I think it gets a bit odd. now I cannot stop getting out 34-36ish grams in about 7 seconds. I’ve upped the coffee to 19g ( more than that and I can get the portafilter in, the coffee is too high) does anyone have any ideas? I thought - in my simple head - the whole point of the pressurised basket was to slow down the water.
  7. hi thanks for the help, I can find much info about that grinder - maybe as it has been updated - https://www.bellabarista.co.uk/eureka-mignon-facile-matt-black.html thanks
  8. or maybe a Sage smart grinder pro - brand-new @ £200, any thoughts?
  9. Hey Guys and Gals, I have found some refurbished grinders for sale - the F5 is £250 And the Astro is £225 or £275 ( I’m clarifying why the price difference between the 2) any thoughts on which one you’d go for? This will be to sit along side the Gaggia Classic Pro that I’m going to order shortly. thanks in advance.
  10. Thanks I’ll have a read! lots of interesting points, for what its worth I had a look today in Waitrose and most (not all) of the regular sized bags appeared to be 227g.
  11. That sounds great! So you won’t have to operate with a foreign plug!! Or deal with the long wait for shipping to the UK!
  12. Thanks for the replies..... 227g is the weight is suggested as I mainly see coffee sold at that weight ( in supermarkets and coffee shops) I’ve since read that it’s apparently to do with historical reasons ( Half a pound = 227g) im not at the stage of selling coffee or anything close to that kind of scale. It was more just a thought! thanks again adam
  13. Hi, I ordered a sandbox smart and am really please with it. I ordered it directly from the supplier, so give them a google and see what you think. Im doing about 5 + roasts a day on it currently getting ready for Christmas presents! 😁
  14. Morning guys and gals, I got a question about pricing of coffee ( more hypothetical than anything) but here goes...... when you sell coffee to a retailer ( coffee shop or retail shop) what kind of Mark up do they expect to make on the coffee you sell them? For example if you sell them a bag of 227g coffee for £3 what would they expect to be able to sell that on for? Again, what kind of price would a coffee shop expect to pay on a 1kg bag of coffee I appreciate the vagueness of my questions it’s just been running through my head recently. As I’ve no idea of the running of retai
