  1. I've turned my dial from 4 to 5 just to see what would happen. Had to grind quite a bit finer for espresso, I expected less of a gap. Conversely had to coarsen my Chemex grind up a bit. Body has changed but I'm not sure how to describe it. Flavours seem a bit more intense. I'm going to stick with it for a bit but I can see why a bit of bypass is needed.
  2. Would strongly recommend eneloops - but buy legit, there's probably more fakes than real ones on Amazon marketplace / ebay these days. I've got them in my DECT phones and shaver and they last ages between charges.
  3. Where's the best / cheapest place to get one? Prices seem to have shot up massively.
  4. I've had La Cristalina Washed and Natural from a different roaster, it's a fantastic farm with super quality. I've had other coffee's from Gardelli and they're a fantastic roaster. Im sure you'll enjoy.
  5. Couldn't agree more with Boots and Dave. You get what you pay for.
  6. There is a massive thread going back years on here somewhere. They were and possibly still are a forum sponsor despite all that.
  7. I cant say I've noticed any of these in the tank of my L1. Everyone needs to be posting this on the KS page and emailing them though.
  8. Good post Bootsy. I think there's a lot to this that we just dont know yet, certainly roast profile (and possibly roaster itself) plays a part. I like La Cabra's blog post on it: https://www.lacabra.dk/blogs/news/we-should-be-resting-our-coffee I try and aim for a minimum of 3 weeks for espresso and 10 days for filter these days, longer if possible. I've had incredible coffee from 3 month old bags that were sealed and left undisturbed, no stale notes at all.
  9. I've got a Vario but was considering upgrading to a Niche - firstly for the seemless switching between espresso and filter especially as WFH looks to become a much more common thing and secondly to see if there was an improvement in cup quality. I'm a bit confused and not really in the mood to read 75 pages on HB, can you link me directly to the mod you did? And just to confirm you haven't swapped the bottom burr carrier for the metal forte one?
  10. Yep, it's a thing. Worse in spring and autumn when you can get bigger fluctuations. Very annoying when you're dialled in then suddenly way off.
  11. Filters arrived today. Looking forward to changing the filter and seeing what affect it has on taste.
  12. Filters were supposedly sent last weekend yet nothing has arrived
  13. No smell at all from mine so definitely something wrong there. I got an email reply from Maxwell today so they are replying. RE the Osimo does it work well with both espresso and filter? I know some places that use RO for their espresso but not for their filter as they want a different profile, and 2 RO systems would be expensive. Plus you lose the bypass functionality if you go that route (or does the Osimo have bypass?)
  14. The email was asking about when we'd get our next batch of filters (was meant to be Mid May) so pointless now. He has since replied on KS. Hope the remaining ones aren't too many months behind.
