    @Like Medium Strong Coffee @2cups I’ve been puzzling over it too, it just doesn’t make sense to not scale it up. Something has to be in the way, I’m guessing there is either some technical intricacies in manufacture that need to be tightly controlled or a bottleneck somewhere up the supply chain (perhaps the advanced material used in the grind chamber base and sweeper arms)? Or it could be something as simple as an exclusivity deal with their manufacturer who can’t/aren’t willing to scale up.
  3. I’ve been ok with doing both at the same time but found it’s better workflow to do the milk after the shot - for me both finish at about the same time so I’m left doing an octopus impression trying to close the steam valve and cut the shot in rapid succession.
  4. Frontline Coffee Bevan Blend a friend of mine sent me this the other week, I was a bit sceptical as no roast date or tasting notes on the bag. I was (incorrectly) brewing it as a filter and it was nice, a bit dark tasting. I looked at the website and noticed it was an espresso blend - just dialled it in on the machine and it is a very smooth take on classic espresso (medium roast so not so much carbon but nice chocolate and caramel aftertaste). I’ve been searching for daily driver bean and this may be the one!
  5. A nice and (relatively) cost effective way to solve for filter is a hand grinder, that is assuming you would be ok with doing so. It is also very portable and doesn’t need electricity so would suit coffee making away from home. I got an 1zpresso JX which is dialled in for filter and it is easy enough to record your preferred grind size based on clicks from zero point. When I’m making filter it’s a more leisurely process so it doesn’t hurt to be grinding by hand (I guess a meditative experience), I actually think an electric grinder would spoil the vibe - I don’t need my dose to be done in 15 s

    The G-Dawg strikes me as the option for someone who can’t get ahold of/afford a Niche. I don’t think we will be seeing people ditching their Niche to get into the G-Dawg any time soon, but time will telll.

    This level of demand is not sustainable, there will most likely be an abundance of lightly used secondhand bikes, musical instruments, and coffee equipment once we are allowed to emerge from our homes. Mass lockdowns are creating a lot of noise from a demand planning/production management perspective.

    Build a competitively priced alternative and market it through well established stockists in their local markets 😎

    I actually prefer the black one so am happy. Put it in my basket at 2 sold and by the time I checked out it was 150...

    Well there are 90-odd flat burr single dosing grinders available from BB. Will be interesting to see if those who lost out on the Niche decide to go for the G-Dawg.
