  1. This is what the Postie brought me on Monday, a Feld47 Travel, Tamper Mat and a set of scales. Due today a couple of Airscape cans filled with Los Altos beans from Origin.
  2. I’ve managed to buy a second that was released on to the site this afternoon. So I am no longer looking.
  3. Thanks, that would have been good. Unfortunately I missed out on them, I wavered for a day and now they are all gone. I will keep checking the site, there is meant to be a new supply in April, so I may get lucky.

  9. Thanks for the estimate, duly added to the budget - Knock box, tamper, containers for beans, brush to clean the head, jug for milk (I’ve got a thermopen, so that should work OK for tracking the milk temp. What else should i be factoring in a this stage?
  10. Hands up we have been lazy and have relied on BTC machines for the last 10 years or so, but we are now on the machine 2 and this is developing problems. So down the rabbit hole I went and realised that YES I do want better coffee and YES I do occasionally want to have a flat white or other coffee with milk. We have the time to learn the skills and a slightly obsessive bent that could be useful, or (more probably) dangerous to the bank account So I have spent the last week combing through this site, bouncing over to DaveC site, watching DaveC’s videos and some of James Hoffmann’s.
