  1. Have you tried fitting your old carrier and seeing if they still gush? It would at least determine whether the change of carrier is the cause
  2. Well I know there are different v60 papers and some are known to be slower, I forget which are which. Aligning can never hurt but may not be the cause here. Can't help thinking it would have to be miles out to cause real problems like that. Do you make espresso? Poor alignment might show up as having to grind right on the limit of 0
  3. Is it a kalita 185? Always drew down slowly for me when I had my EK, and mine was aligned very well. The smaller 155 was always fine. Do you get the same with other brewers? V60 for example?
  4. I can meet you at 55?
  5. Taken to PM, please mark as sold
  6. More stuff found lurking at the back of cupboard. Magnetic base will stick to EK43 shaft without the need to insert anything into the cut out bit. Its a bit fiddly to find the right spot but fine when you get the hang of it. The robotic arm thing can be fixed into any position, makes the on/off/on/off... nature a bit easier as it goes back on in pretty much the same position you took it off. £15 posted within UK.
  7. Having a January sort out and found stuff I didn't even remember I had. This is Mahlkonig brand alignment tool for radial (I think that's the correct term?) alignment. Looks like they now cost upwards of £100 to buy new, which seems a bit steep. Yours for £65 posted within UK.
  8. Brand new, never used - looks to be around £65 to buy both items new. £35 incl. postage within UK. The filter head takes Bestmax Premium and standard filters. The Best flush allows you to flush water through the filter without having to flush the water through your espresso machine when plumbed in.

  10. Considering buying a La Pav - if its a model with EU plug (220V), is it OK to simply cut off the plug and replace with a UK one?
  11. Indeed. I've owned a number of commercial grinders, most recently an ek43, and have "downgraded" to a niche. No regrets so far. For a long time I was only interested in maximising "cup quality", but it gets tiring constantly chasing perfection and is not always a very fulfilling endeavour. The niche is by far the nicest grinder to actually use that I've had, and is plenty good enough for my needs at the moment. (I am working hard at the concept of "good enough" in many aspects of life at the moment!) Sent from my AC2003 using Tapatalk
