  1. If I'm using a long pre infusion profile I adjust the length of it to when the coffee starts to become visible at the bottom of the filter which is usually about 14s.
  2. I use an EK43 and a niche. Both are convenient to single dose. The EK is more messy. I use the lid from the aluminium screw top pot I use to weigh single doses to reduce popcorning. In terms of technique I just give the cup a rotating shake before emptying into the basket using a funnel then a horizontal plane shake to distribute evenly before tamping. Takes a bit of practice but no need for WDT. Negligible retention and displacement means the 2nd shot is consistent with the first. I find it very easy to dial in.
  3. The codes no longer seem to work.
  4. Interesting but I would have tried putting a weight close to that of a cup then adding the 0.1 and 0.2, and zeroing first as that's that would be around the range that needs to be more accurate i.e. not 0.1 and 0.2 from zero.
  5. I may end up putting in an order for group spares from LF but might need to run my final choice of parts past Dave first if that's ok (to check best materials for seals and O-rings). I did think Paulo was going to supply me with the correct parts along with some accessories I wanted but after a lot of effort clarifying what I wanted (and probably a fair bit on his part too to be fair), nothing has been forthcoming. If I do put an order in (with LF or ACS), I would order extras and would be prepared to add to the order.

  7. Ok. £2,402.96 with shipping and taxes. You have to go to basket and select the country for tax and it changes to £.
  8. Maybe try calling. I think his email was [email protected] their domain.
  9. https://www.qualitasse.co.uk/coffee/ Email the above. It was Richard I dealt with and about 2 or 3 years ago they were £7.99 +VAT +Postage.
  10. I have an EK43 at home and a Niche at work. For single dosing convenience they're reasonably comparable. Thinking back to when I had an Anfim, I couldn't be doing with the retention and faff. The Niche is the most convenient as there's no need to spritz the beans and displacement might be better (hard to test the EK). The EK is way above your price point but pairs well with the Vesuvius.
  11. You can alter the steam pressure. I have a Sproline Foam Knife but mine has a La Marzocco wand fitted AFIK.
  12. I got mine from the UK and it didn't cost a lot. I'll go through my emails and try and find the order details.
  13. Good question. You would have liked to think they were.
