  1. Interesting. If true (and I'm not disputing it), should this be a sticky? I've bookmarked this post for further experimentation
  2. I'm tempted to re-read it, because I enjoyed it so much, but a re-read will be due whenever he gets around to releasing book 3, so I am waiting.
  3. @Jony mine is a Brazen Plus, so I've no idea what the 2.0 has changed. I only use the Brazen when making coffee for several people, otherwise I would always choose the Kalita. I don't think the Brazen could even make a single cup. Of course, you can make more, and it will stay warm for a few hours, but I think a Kalita tastes better anyway. So I definitely don't regret getting my Brazen, it's a great bit of kit. I've only ever used it with the Kalita 185 papers, and never even tried the regular basket.
  4. I have been drinking exclusively drip for a while now. I went into V60 first, and quite enjoyed it. Lots of control, but on the downside, lots of control! I've had a Clever for ages, which is really easy to use, but I felt a good V60 beat it. In my opinion, don't waste time on porcelain, glass or metal V60s, just go straight for the plastic, it's the best and cheapest. Nowadays, I'm using a Kalita Wave, which I prefer to V60, and seems to be half way between Clever and V60 in terms of the effect of my skill/cockups. A secondary bonus is that the papers from my chosen 185 also fit my Behmor Brazen when I want to make a larger brew. The papers are a bit more expensive.
  5. Mine drifts. I bought it from eBay. I also have a Brewista v1 at work, and I prefer the Brewista. So yeah not a huge fan.
  6. Phew, I spent far too much time thinking about this
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. Ooh I didn't know about the Flair. Is it any good, and how does one get one in the UK?
  10. Just so I can plan my coffee purchases, is this likely to happen still?
  11. 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?
