  1. Still available Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  2. Did anyone else order the the peak with a bundle of spare filters? My peak arrived, but no sign of the additional filters
  3. Yes ok, can you PM me your address? Thanks
  4. The base came loose, glued it back on and has been fine since. Glass rod not included. £25 posted Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  5. Use with standard kalita 185 filters. Twist the body to increase our decrease the number of drain holes on the bottom. Can also close all holes for the bloom so nothing drips through, useful for hydrating the grounds evenly. Has had the newer gasket installed which pretty much stops any drips getting through when holes are closed. Occasionally the body gets a bit loose from the base, a tiny tightening of the allen as screw is all that's needed. Very good condition, though can't find the rubber grip thing around the top (I never used it). Think it's only available from the US currently, and likely to incur import duty. £45 posted.

  8. A good friend of mine has asked me to help him sell his Rancilio Silvia V4 2015 Edition Espresso Machine. He bought it from new from Bella Barista in June 2015. He is selling because it gets virtually no use and is looking to free up room in his kitchen. It's about as close as you can get to "as good as new" without actually buying a new one - I very much doubt he has made more than 50 drinks on it. Any suggestions on selling price?
  9. Looking forward to greater minds than mine distilling all this into something more digestible. I've been trying to work out what Figure 6 is telling us, so far my best guess is: when dialling in with a standard (higher) dose, simply reducing the dose and keep everything else the same (thereby lengthening the brew ratio and reducing shot time) is likely to result in a higher EY. Therefore to maintain the same EY as you had in your original "tasty" dialled in shot, you also need to grind coarser?
  10. In think there are some interesting bits in there. I've often found really tasty shots around the 19 second mark, but I always put that down to a quirk of the EK43, but maybe there's more to it. I can't help wonder how easy it is to use small doses and coarser grinds resulting in quick shots, yet still achieving 6 bar pressure... from my experience on the Sage the pressure would be really low under these conditions. Is it a limitation of a vibe pump?
  11. Indeed it was, let's pm Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  12. How come you're selling if you went to the trouble of having it machined?
  13. I was pretty underwhelmed by colonnas on a recent visit. Best experience I had was in nearby Frome in a place called Frama - delicious clever brew of a colonna roasted coffee, and the flat white from their decent espresso machine was the best I can remember having in some time Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
