  1. Well it still shouldn't be the case for EU buyers, as Niche should and could be charging ex VAT as many UK-based retailers are doing when receiving orders from the EU, and vice versa. Why Niche don't do it is beyond me, but I suppose it helps the top line look bigger.
  2. Nothing particularly surprising really. He didn't say anything that wasn't said here.

    Purchased around launch from Bella Barista, which means there's still plenty of the 2-Year transferable warranty. James Hoffman's review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53lTlpjM2sQ I have no complaints about the grinder - but I have my eyes on the Lagom P64, and I am hoping the Hoffman Bump (as pictured) will help with selling the Solo. I just am not too fond of the looks, but it performs just as you would expect. I am happy to produce a video showing me performing a live clear marker test to show that the burrs are greatly aligned. I've done that so that you don't have to. I am also happy to provide you with proof of purchase of the SSP burrs. And of course you also get the stock burrs. Grinder is £399 when new, and burrs are 170$. So you are saving some £100+ *and* you don't have to spend hours aligning the burrs! I can ship UK-wide of course (original packaging) but that's on the buyer. Otherwise, collection in Glasgow.

  5. if you always drink one bean at a time, I would argue that single dosing is not indispensable. I would suggest to start with a Mignon (there's some on the classifieds section), which you can also mod for single dosing, and if and when you grow tired or dissatisfied of it, you can always get a Niche or a Solo. Or not.
  6. On his Patreon or Discord - he said he'd drop the video shortly (this week or next week I think).
  7. I hope the motor is going to be a bit more reliable than that!
  8. 64mm SSP High Uniformity (aka 'Espresso') Burrs View Advert Hi, I am looking to possibly swap my High Uniformity burrs for the Multipurpose/Brewing/Low Uniformity (whatever their right name is..) burrs. I can also sell them, but I'd rather wait a few days first to see if anybody wants a swap. The burrs have had a few kg's worth of beans through (less than 10kg I'd reckon) so they're basically seasoned and they have their entire lifespan ahead (SSP rates them for 1000kg). The pic is from when I got them, a couple months ago. Th

    Hi, I am looking to possibly swap my High Uniformity burrs for the Multipurpose/Brewing/Low Uniformity (whatever their right name is..) burrs, or sell them. They're basically new. The burrs have had a few kg's worth of beans through (less than 10kg I'd reckon) so they're basically seasoned and they have their entire lifespan ahead (SSP rates them for 1000kg). I can provide you with the receipt of payment to SSP and the original packaging, so that you can trust that you're buying original burrs and that they're new-ish. The pic is from when I got them, a couple months ago. They're now in my Solo. I am merely selling as I have now sold my Lelit Bianca and I'm drinking mostly pourover, so I'd be keen to see if there is a difference in taste that I can perceive between the two burr sets, and there's no better way than to try myself. I can ship UK-wide of course.

  10. Erm, is it possible to post swaps (eg I have such item X, I will swap for item Y), and if so, what would be the best way?
  11. Great to hear - I see you are warming up to this grinder, otherwise you wouldn't bother maybe 😁
  12. @Denis S did you make this bellows yourself? I think they look much neater than the stock ones. And I can't help but wonder whether they could be combined with @AnthonyTD's funnel to have a bellows that is both aesthetically pleasing (well, more than the stock one) and would also allow to feed the beans with the grinder already on.
  13. I have HU and I have been getting great results for espresso (well, I sold my machine a week ago or so), not so much for filter. Unfortunately I can't do without a grinder, otherwise you could've popped by the Southside and tried mine 🤣
