  1. Quality is perfect, no cracks after a month of 2-3 daily uses. I am very happy with the mod. I have leaned the grinder a bit forward to help with the flow, and spraying the beans with water before grinding and tapping hard on the bellows about 10 times towards the end of the grind and right after, is giving me practically zero retention. I surely recommend the printer I used on Ebay, very good quality.
  2. Yes, fair enough, I understand, so let's just leave it open for now. If by the time you have a specific date and price, I haven't already got one, let's discuss then. In the meantime, I am open to offers!
  3. Thank you all for your replies. Yes, I agree, the burrs look the same, it's just cropped vs uncropped picture. The body of the grinder is different though (rubber area, handle, dial ring), but I guess the changes are aesthetic, not affecting the functionality. Also, seeing that in the 1zpresso website, the products are identical to the E-bay/Amazon one, gives me some reassurance that they are genuine and nothing fishy is going on... The price for the JX in their site, is £105.42 (delivery and exchange rate included), so that explains the E-Bay/Amazon price... @Baffo did you orde
  4. Thanks for your reply, I agree on the above, and that's why I was looking at the JX version, as I want to use it for V60 & Eva Solo. My question is about the cheaper E-bay & Amazon listing (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1Zpresso-JX-Hand-Coffee-Grinder/265045318935 & https://www.amazon.co.uk/1Zpresso-Manual-Coffee-Grinder-Light/dp/B07VNQYJDG/), which seem to be different vs the more expensive BB listing (https://www.bellabarista.co.uk/1zpresso-jx-hand-grinder.html). The description is the same, but there are visible noticeable differences. What is more confusing, is than on 1
  5. Checked it, and the pictures I was comparing are from the JX, not the pro JX: PRO: Maybe someone who is knowledgeable about the 1Zpresso grinders can shed some light about the differences between the Bellabarista (and other sites) one, and the Amazon/E-bay one...
  6. Also... Burr picture from the Bellabarista one Burr picture from the Amazon/E-bay one Something doesn't look right to me...
  7. Thanks mate, I checked it and something seems a bit off to me... Look at the picture of the one on ebay Look at the picture of the one on Bellabarista Notice that the black rubber is smaller on the Bellabarista one, and the handle is different (round wooden end and different shape). Now look at this on Amazon, it's the same as the one on e-bay, and on Amazon it's at £115.39 (from Amazon US). https://www.amazon.co.uk/1Zpresso-Manual-Coffee-Grinder-Light/dp/B07VNQYJDG Look at the adjustment ring of the one on Amazon (and e-bay) And look at the ad
  8. Hi, I am using a Mignon Specialita for my espressos, but I am looking for a good quality hand grinder for V60 and Eva Solo. Before I pull the trigger for a brand new 1Zpresso JX, I though about checking if any fellow forum member has one for sale. I was thinking about the 1Zpresso JX (£149 from Bellabarista), because that's how high my budget can go. So please, take that into account if you have anything to offer. Cheers, Chris
  9. Thanks for the reply. The clean water backflush should be done right after the last shot of the day, when the machine is still hot? Or at the end of the day, with the machine cold, or it doesn't matter? I guess the way to do the backflush would be to put the blind basket in the portafilter, press the brew button for about 10 seconds until the pump develops full pressure, turn the brew button off, repeat 4-5 times? I have read that Gaggia does not recommend backflushing the machine, although it makes sense to backflush every machine that has a 3 way valve, so I would take that recomme
  10. I want to develop a routine of cleaning and maintaining my Gaggia Classic, so I was searching relevant topics and I am trying to understand what is the best way to take proper care of the machine. This is what I have understood so far, and a couple of questions: - After every shot, flush about 10 seconds of clear water and clean the shower screen with a soft cloth. Also, make sure the basket and portafilter are cleaned after each shot. If making milk based coffee, run some steam through the steam wand after each use and clean the wand from the milk with a soft cloth. - Daily, af
  11. So, the single dosing mod arrived and I have to say that I am very happy with it! The hopper fits perfectly, so I can confirm that the diameter has been reduced in the file shared in Thingiverse. After cleaning the grinder, I was able to put 18.05g of beans in, and get 17.93g of coffee out. I think that it's a quite good result, so the mod serves its purpose. I have to say that in order to get good results, I had to hit the bellow quite roughly while grinding and after grinding was finished, so I will need to see how the mod will cope with that in time. Maybe you can find a chea
  12. Yes I saw that in Thingiverse. I hope the maker fixed this and reduced to fit. If not, I'll have to get some sandpaper from Amazon and do it... I'll know when I'll get it delivered
  13. Just received news from the printer, the parts are ready and they will be shipped today. I think the pics are looking good, more to say once I get them!
  14. I found this video helpful. It is very analytical, LONG, but goes into the level of detail that I like to see. I am still struggling to get consistency, but this helped me understand what I am doing wrong and what I need to practice, so I hope I'll get there eventually. Hope that you'll find it helpful too!
  15. For me the reason for single dosing would not be so much not to mix the previous grind of the same beans with the new one, but to be able to switch beans and brewing methods, assuming I have already dialed in the different beans, so I just have to adjust the grind size each time. If I didn't have the need for that, I would probably not be looking for single dosing. I pulled the trigger on e-bay, I will let you know how that goes, I hope it will not lead to one more e-bay disaster lol
