  1. @Coffeetoffi How are you finding the Ascaso? I keep looking at one but there aren't many around it seems in the UK. Would love to know your thoughts on it!

  5. View Advert The Solo / DF64 / Turin - Matt Black The Solo / DF64 / Turin - Matt Black Purchased from Bella Barista on 29th March 2021 and has the balance of the 2 year transferrable warranty remaining. Very good condition as hopefully the pictures show. There is a slight mark on the forks as shown which was there when I bought it but it never bothered me. I would estimate it's had around 3kg of beans through it. I've enjoyed using the grinder however I only purchased it whilst my Sette 270Wi was repaired and now I have that back and I've had

I've enjoyed using the grinder however I only purchased it whilst my Sette 270Wi was repaired and now I have that back and I've had chance to compare them I just prefer the workflow on the Sette. Also, a minor gripe, there are no safety features on the Solo so if you have young kids it could be an issue. Price excludes postage but can be arranged by the buyer at their cost if they prefer that over collection from Nottingham. I also have the original box. If you have any questions, please let me know.

  7. Regards the machine selection he’s unfortunately at the mercy of his patreon backers so can’t blame him for that. It is therefore misleading to give the video the name it has as so many machines have been over looked. Oddly if you read the comments, there seems to be a lot of people who claim not even to drink coffee. Bizzare. Despite the rather shallow video I still think he’s great for coffee. Dare I say he’s almost had a similar effect to coffee that Tiger Woods had to golf. Directing people’s hard earned cash to the coffee industry is good for all those who work in it includ
  8. I watched it and although I enjoyed it, it does seem harsh on the Lelit however it was the same when he reviewed £500 machines. It seems he has nothing bad to say about the Lelit but then doesn't rate them as highly which is odd. Then again like most things it's all down to opinion, what one person loves another won't. I would have liked the long term ownership to be talked about a bit more as that is where the Sage falls down and yet it was one of his favourites. @burnzy I take it you're still happy with your choice?!
  9. I’m curious as to where the screw hole is for the shower screen?! You can usually gently screw a bolt or screw in that and the shower block pops right out. Does it have a solenoid valve?
  10. Yes good shout on that, seems the workflow is easier and you can get them in the UK now. Happy pulling!
  11. Thanks re the 3rd wave packets, will take a look at those although we’re trying to reduce plastic these days but if they make a major difference I think that’s fair enough 😀 Glad you’re enjoying the flair, any thoughts on upgrading to the 58? lol the FB group really is dominated by fan boys and WTD tools, too true! Really nice kettle choice BTW!
  12. Hmm that's a great question. Honestly, I've not made a shot with the Gaggia since so I couldn't say. I keep meaning to but I enjoy the shots so much I don't feel the need to. I do have a plan to test them side my side, just need some time to actually do so. The Flair work flow works very well for me to be honest. I only drink espressos whereas my wife has a latte however we rarely drink at the same time. It's almost like having a dual boiler in a way when making the latte as I can have the boiler on the Gaggia readying for steam while I pull a shot so I can get straight to steaming after.
  13. I really enjoyed @BlackCatCoffeesignature too but if you want a touch more acidity I enjoyed their Guatemalan Atitlan which was fruity but not too much
  14. I’ve got the same too! I wouldn’t say it’s a design flaw as it was designed to be used when away from home too ie camping. I’ve been really impressed and although I also have a PID Gaggia Baby, I’ve not used that since getting the Flair in February. Considering the 58 but will wait to see what the reviews are like. I hear there has been a lot of pre orders so shouldn’t take long to find out.
  15. Welcome! It sounds to me that a hand grinder maybe your best bet if you’re on a budget and like to switch beans. The 1zpresso JX Pro gets great write ups.
