  1. I have been doing a few espressos today and kept playing with all the options. Got a bit better shots than yesterday but still a long way to go. I have also changed to DaveUK suggested settings and tried both type of infusion but difficult for me to describe any difference. What are supposed to be the pros/cons of steam vs bloom method?
  2. thanks a lot both!! @MediumRoastSteam & @DavecUK Very informative
  3. Thanks a lot!! I changed them as per Dave's recommendation but some are big changes (e.g. KDs). Will test; I am still not getting the timing right. Also need to learn/dial in the Specialita grounder... If these settings are better I am surprised that Lelit is not using them by default or at least closer.
  4. Tx, I watched many of his videos but not that particular one. This is very useful but I am not a bit confused with other parameters that I understood were not needed to be changed. e.g. Dave has KPc as 0.2 and mine is 2.0 by default. Shall I change this and other as per Dave's set up?
  5. Thanks!!! Checked the manual and cannot find how to activate the pump 3 seconds and then the bloom. Is this automatically done within the pre infusion time? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Got it today I have been dialing it in but still more adjustments are needed. So far very impressed with it. Frothing is amazing; now trying to play with all espresso options. Just some quick questions. - what brewing temperature are you using? I started with the 95C standard but have now reduced to 93C - what infusion setting do you have? I am currently using 6s and total 33s shot seems ok - coming from a B2C I am trying to understand some settings for my wife. She likes single shoots. Used the single filter but results are not as good
  7. One more to the Lelit Elizabeth club [emoji2]. It should arrive tomorrow.
  8. At the end I went for the Eureka Mignon Specialita. Buying together with the Lilit had a bit of discount. It was difficult to justify almost £200 difference, waiting 2 or 3 months + some hassle separating dosis upfront. Realistically I do not change beans each day. For decaf I could grind for a few days and store aside.
  9. Thanks. For smaller cases I would not bother much but I would be a bit concerned for the warranty. On top we have Brexit coming. If I decide to buy from the continent I would go with lamachinadelcaffe as price difference would compensate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Thanks a lot, good I asked. I will look elsewhere. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I am after a Lelit Elizabeth and they have a promo for £100 that could help me on accessories or a grinder I will also have to buy. Have not seen any message in the forum but would be great to hear experiences?
  12. Thanks all for feedback. One additional question. Does Niche usually delivers on time or even ahead? Niche has Feb delivery date which would be an issue as I would need a grinder. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Fair point but I hope my machine lasts many years, well beyond two. In any case it is a good deal so I will think about it.
  14. thanks all for your comments. It does not look very promising. @Crin, thanks for that. Is a good discount but I have been put a bit off by the comments on Sage reliability and their complexity to be fixed.
  15. thanks all for the answers and advice. @mctrials23, not unpopular but fair point. It is more a mater of time than ability or desire to do it; if you have 2 kids, preparing breakfast and trying to be on time for school run, last thing you want is also to weight beans . Maybe the tamper is not perfect at that time but also your expectations for coffee quality are low. When we are then all at home in a more relaxed situation then I am the one preparing the coffees and would have more time (to prepare and enjoy). Currently if the kids also want a hot chocolate it takes me long time to
