  1. 53mm tamper View Advert Has anyone around Newport/Cardiff got a 53mm tamper they would sell? Advertiser gareth689 Date 27/05/21 Price Category Wanted  
  2. I have one and it worked well for what it is, but changed to a completely manual set up now in order to get perfection. It is never hugely consistent, but you also need to consider that the grind settings seem to shift after making the first coffee or as the machine is turned on longer/heating up more. I found the single basket to be much more consistent so may be worth trying?

    Only used for a few shots on one day before changing to a La Spaziale which has a smaller portafilter so no longer required. It’s as new.

  8. Torq-set is completely different to a torx bit. Torq-set is more like an offset Philips bit
  9. Those screws look more like a torq-set bit rather than Philips or pozi?
  10. VST Ridgeless 18g basket View Advert About to order one but thought I'd check here to see if anyone has one gathering dust. Can pay with paypal if you're not local in South Wales. Advertiser gareth689 Date 20/04/21 Price Category Wanted  
  11. I'm using the single basket in my oracle, it takes 12g, although could easily get a bit more in with a fan adjustment, but i now have it dialed in 1:2 over 28s and I'm getting pretty good results. it did take a while and a lot of wasted coffee to get it right though and I occasionally get a bad shot but 80% of the time it's great.
  12. Thanks all, will have a look at these suggestions and get some orders in
  13. Found an unused one that’s never been out of the box on Facebook for £700.
  14. Hi all, I'm picking up a new Sage oracle tomorrow having spent years with a Delonghi Bean to cup and just wanting better as I just drink espresso and i'm sick of either sour or bitter ones from the standard machine. Can anyone recommend a decent bean that will give a beginner good results with this machine?
