  1. Decent espresso machine View Advert Hi all I would love to have a Decent espresso machine but sadly cannot afford a new one. Please get in touch if you have a used one to sell. Many Thanks! Advertiser Lawn Date 14/06/21 Price Category Wanted

    The next drop...

    Hi Dave Can you put me down for a white one please. I’ve just upgraded, been meaning to do this for a while but this has given me the kick I needed. Thank you!
  5. Payment sent! Thanks
  6. Hi Mate I will take these at the asking price. Cheers
  7. Thanks for all the advice guys I’m now getting around .3g retention nearly every time which is great. Still a bit messy though. I’m not sure if single dosing is for me and was thinking about getting the Eureka mignon specialita. The question is do you think the taste in the cup will be noticeable between 64mm and 55mm burrs? Tbh my palate is not that refined! Interesting to know your thoughts.
  8. I have one of the caps supplied by Daniel Wong but it’s still quite messy. Maybe it’s me going silly with the blowers.
  9. Very good tips here thank you. I admit I do go a bit silly with the blower when it’s still grinding which is making a huge mess. Do you put anything at the top of the grinder like a cap or tamp? I’ve tried both to stop popcorning but there’s normally some bits left that haven’t been ground.
  10. It’s a tough choice, the espresso was easily the best homemade shot I’ve done yet 😂
  11. Some great advice here and the link that was sent is a very good interesting read! I was messing about with the grinder just now and I managed to get a perfect shot of espresso dialled in! I was using the inbuilt grinder on a sage barista express before and the difference is night and day. Sadly the misses wasn’t too happy that I peppered the kitchen in coffee grounds. So it’s either a new grinder or girlfriend, her words not mine 😂
  12. @urbanbumpkin I’ve not had a successful shot yet haha it either chokes the machine or gushes out. I’ve spent more time cleaning out the grinder after every grind then actually pulling shots! I work away a lot so haven’t had much time to mess around with it yet, I’m going to have another go at the weekend but I think I’ve been grinding way too fine.
  13. @Rincewind hi, I’ve tried different beans but I get the same result. Interesting point about the grinds looking like talcum powder haha. This is my first time using the grinder and I did think the grinds where extremely fine maybe this is a contributing factor? I went to the other extreme and the grinds where very course and I got less retention that time. I suppose logically thinking, the finer the grounds the more particles there is so therefore more static will be generated. I need to find the sweet spot and give it another test. This has helped thank you.
  14. I’m not sure what it was before tbh, I was to eager to strip it down and clean it! Yeah the scales are accurate I would be really happy with .3 - .4g retention haha
  15. I’ve tried this but still no joy, it did help a little.
