  2. It looks like you’ve ordered the same solenoid as me. Did you go via a German seller? When I swapped the solenoid on mine, I found that the top nut was slightly loose on mine. Might be worth checking that. I might do the pump at some point, if it’s only £12 I’ll probably go for it. Have you the link to the seller. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. I’ve lowered my Sage DB by extending the pre infusion to 50 sec and lowering the pressure. My shots seem to be about 7 bar then gradually drop to approx 5. In the clip it says it holds at 3 then ramps up to 7 then slowly drops to 5 bar. Any idea how they do this? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. I prefer 18g VST but VSTs are less forgiving Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. I’ve just tried these in a 15g VST 16g =>35g 27 secs 93C. Drank as a long black. Sweet citrus orange, dried fruit. A really well balanced and complex shot. Best shot yet from these beans. Hats off [email protected] vaga at Vagabond for the advice and for putting this together for us. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. I use the white filtropa Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. Thanks for the info. Just out of interest are you dosing 16g in a 18gVST or 16g in a 15g VST? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. 17g=>34g in 31 secs, low pressure 94c. In an 18g VST. Balanced citrus and sweetness, really nice. I’ve tried letting the shot run longer and I’m back in the Smokey to Tobacco zone. This may just be me as I had a break from coffee for about 10 days. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. I’m getting results on 94c now Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. Cheers Paul Thanks fo the heads up, I’ll definitely try dropping the dose to 17g and have a play. I do have a 15g VST but it’s a fickle beast[emoji3]. Just out of interest what 16g baskets do you use in the cafe? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. Following on from the previous post Tried going shorter still. Same grind setting as previous post but dropped the temp from 96 to 94c 18g=>34g 29 secs Best shot so far, intense choc and fruit Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. Ok so todays attempt I've kept the grind setting as before, but thought I'd stop the shot earlier 18g=>36g 24secs at 96C Tobacco taste is much less than previously (but still there in the background). The other tastes are quite nice but it's being spoilt IMO by the smokey edge. I agree with @filthynines I've never brewed espresso at such a high temp, and I think the temp is muting the good tasting notes. @vaga paul @vagabond @Hairy_Hogg Any pointers for for non milk based espresso?
  13. Coarser and upped the temp Tried 18g => 42g 29secs 96c low pressure. Less Smokey but I’m still getting a slight tobacco edge to it. Aside from that it was nice. I’m drinking these as a straight spro or long blacks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. I’ve had a few tries of these as espresso and I’m still dialling these in. I’m getting a Smokey edge to my attempts so far. General ballpark is 18g=>38g in 42 secs. I’ve upped the temp to 94c, but am still getting a slight smokiness in taste. I was going to increase the temp and go slightly coarser. Any pointers from anyone? @vaga paul Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
