  1. Reg Barber made me one in 49.4 for my Cremina I think. Wasn't cheap though. I think I paid $140 CAD plus customs.
  2. I tried the Tynemouth and it wasn't for me. Best decaf I've found is the Rave Colombia Suarez Project Decaf, which is actually about as nice as any non-decaf I've had. Tasting notes are coffee, with a coffee aftertaste. Great!
  3. Ooh I didn't know about the Flair. Is it any good, and how does one get one in the UK?
  4. Just so I can plan my coffee purchases, is this likely to happen still?
  5. I've got one of these https://lynweber.com/accessories/steamtip-adapter/ . I don't suppose the Cremina end would fit your NS machine would it?

  8. Of course, as soon as I ask, I find it! It's coffeediff.co.uk Now I feel like a shill
  9. I was using this forum the other day, and there was a link posted to a website that allowed you to search for beans across multiple vendors by various parameters, like region, or decaf etc. I really wish I'd bookmarked it, and I can't find it again. Does anyone know what it is? Thanks, Simon
  10. So basically always let the whole thing drain through?
  11. Because I'm taking it off at 3:30 when it takes much longer to drain completely. Maybe that's not the right thing to do, but so far that's how I've done it.
  12. OK so I can't get the Kasuya to drain by 3:30 and still be tasty, so I went back to my regular V60 plastic, and discovered that the 3.6 grind on the Feldgrind drains way, way too quickly on the regular V60. My current settings are therefore: Kasuya V60 - 3.6 on the Feldgrind - takes until about 4:30 to drain Plastic V60 - 2.2 on the Feldgrind - easily drains by 3:30 The taste is similar, but at the moment I'd give the nod to the Kasuya. However, I get much less volume, obviously. Therefore I am going to try going finer on the plastic V60.
  13. Interesting, thanks for the pointer, we’re not that far apart. Perhaps I should go even coarser as there’s no way my Kasuya has drained by 3:30. I’m so far past what I would consider a normal grind that I’ll believe anything is possible at this point. Somewhat over caffeinated now so this might have to wait until tomorrow
  14. I tried to reproduce my grind settings from the HGOne on the Feldgrind just because I don't always want to leave the HGOne set like that, and I figure I can use the Feldgrind just for 4-6. Anyway, my first attempt got me to 3.6 on the Feldgrind (3 full turns from zero, then setting 6). I might tighten up just a little bit, but a very drinkable coffee was had. This with the Kasuya V60.
  15. I find this forum fairly calm, most of the time. Most arguments go over my head and I don't notice. It's the nature of the internet to produce this sort of thing. I always think of this great XKCD cartoon when it happens:
