  1. i just came on this thread to make the same joke - doh - not only am i 5 hours too late, but also my jokes are no good if i am @Baffo's level πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ πŸ™‚
  2. oh thats interesting - thank you
  3. they did some of that right? they only did the full analysis on their grinder but they did some other comparisons against a couple of other IIRC its by no means comprehensive but as a newbie i found it quite interesting info that i hadnt seen before - i took absolutely no actions from it however πŸ™‚
  4. πŸ™‚ i guess i wasnt necessarily recommending the grinder with my post - just thought you would be interested in the data in the updates about grind distribution etc. For me kickstarter / IGG is a really personal thing - you are taking a risk on something which is not yet in market and that works for some and not others
  5. @Tinkstar - if you fancy a bit of a geek out in terms of analysis on grind, have a look at this campaign on kickstarter - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/goat-mug/arco-2-in-1-coffee-grinder/posts if you look in the updates section, during the campaign they did some analysis on grind distribution which i found quite interesting. i have to say i didnt really understand it all but i think i got the idea of what they were showing. if you have a look - let me know what you think
  6. i think it was something like 3 times more likely to have symptoms if you had covid anti-bodies so not a completely strict split (i.e. still 25% of people with a reaction would not have had covid). like you say - the main things are you are feeling better now and you should be protected going forward πŸ™‚
  7. that is about my standard of joke! interesting your friend got through doping control after the race πŸ™‚
  8. @DavecUK hope you are feeling better, i read an article (which has been picked up in a few places) which suggests you are more likely to get a severe reaction like this if you actually had covid at some point in the last year - anecdotally friends of mine (mostly in the US) who have already been vaccinated seem to be able to correlate this. Still it just a single piece of research.
  9. Are you kidding me - Stockfleth = flattening with your finger before tamping! how does that get named πŸ™‚
  10. wow thats a lot of data - with lots of lines which seem heavily correlated, does the summary surprise anyone though? I am off to google Stockfleth πŸ™‚ Keep your blades sharp. The OCD distribution tool doesn’t really help. The Stockfleth method is very helpful. A heavy tamp is unnecessary. Not all tampers were created equal; the Pergtamp or similar will outperform other tampers. Use a scale if you want to be able to pull shots of similar consistency as an automatic machine.
  11. Following on from @baffo's thread of to funnel or not to funnel .... If you could offer newbie advice about puck preparation what would it be? Do you use a dosing cup vs grind into a portafilter Do you use a WDT tool or something else Do you level and tamp or just one What have you changed about your technique over the years (why) and what has stayed the same? Answers on a postcard (or below)
  12. hey (NB - i am a newbie so the following is a regurgitation of what i have gleaned from this forum and elsewhere but hope it helps - i wont be offended it you ignore though) from what i have gathered, the quality of a grinder seems to be too subjective to put into a formal ranking - i guess a bit like ranking cars: what you like and how you want to use it are such important factors that no single list can exist - a Ferrari is no good if you want to go on holiday with 4 kids and a dog. To get to a grinder decision and to help you navigate through this section, i think there are a 3 '
  13. hey @Rscut on the discount point raised by @ajohn - i also understand that if you sign up to a zoom demo, not only do you get some great insight into how the machines work but you may also get a code for a 25% discount which does make the machines very attractively priced. https://www.sageappliances.com/uk/en/home/index.html Good luck with your search πŸ™‚ Jon
