  1. Thats more than fair. Thankyou. I'll PM you now.
  2. Well I never thought i'd say this but the interior of your kettle is beautiful. How much would you like for it?
  3. Thanks Step21. You make good points. (even if they dont provide me the justification i wanted to buy an expensive kettle!) Am in london so scale is a real issue. TBH I just moved into the place and havent given the communal kitchen a proper look around there may well be a standard kettle there allowing me to reserve the gooseneck for coffee and tea in my room. Joey24Dirt. Please do post photos and details and i'll get back to you tonight once i have a clearer idea of my requirements.
  4. Hi. I've just moved into a new flat and need to buy a new kettle and was wondering if i could forego a regular kettle and only have an electric pourover kettle. Anyone have one gathering dust? Would anyone advise against using a pourover as your prinary kettle for cooking water etc? Cheers Ewan
  5. I'll take the 18g at asking if still availiable?
  6. https://www.gumtree.com/p/other-household-goods/baratza-encore-coffee-grinder-e8/1259180295 Might be a good deal for someone.
  7. Do you think they'll send us the natural next month seeing as they finished the letter saying we'd have to wait and see?
  8. Hi so i was adjusting with this at rest. I know its ideal to adjust whilst running but this thing grinds too fast for me to be able to do that without creating lots of waste / mess. regarding the burrs touching, I didn't hear any metal on metal if thats what you mean. I can't say i didi check for stones. The coffee was this: https://www.heartandgraft.co.uk/collections/coffee/products/nicaraguan-el-bosque-felix-natural-process-microlot Many Thanks
  9. After trying to dial in some beans that kept wanting to finer and finer, the grinder (F83) started producing really coarse grinds. Did i push it too far? It was further than i had tightened it before but the tightening action didn't feel any different. How do i return it to 'normal'? How do i avoid this happening again in the future? Many thanks Ewan
  10. 1. jlarkin 2. madforcoffee etc. 3. mildredM 4. EwanEdwards Superlative gesture and the coffee sounds alright too.
  11. Really good roaster, plus Dave was helpful and generous when the postie misplaced my order.
  12. As another owner of an f83, i can tell you it produces wonderful fluffy grinds very quickly, 3-4 seconds for 18g. Its easy to use and adjust. I have no complaints at all . Heres a photo of mine next to my classic if that helps, the body of the grinder is pretty much the same height as the classic whilst the hopper is a fair bit taller.
  13. Just got round to drinking La Bolsa. This coffee is really delicious. I think its my favourite i've had from them.
  14. COuld be agood starters setup for someone. I know nothing about the grinder though and doesn't look that great. Nevertheless £50 classic with jug and tamper. https://www.gumtree.com/p/coffee-machines/gaggia-classic-coffee-machine-and-sunbeam-bean-grinder-the-complete-setup/1235670411
  15. In my experience oxford is particularly bad for macbook campers. I haven't heard of Mostro before will have to go down cowley road next time i'm in town. Interesting to hear good reports of UE, I used to work in a place that served them and i found their roasts to be uninspiring, but that of course may have been from the ignorance of the bar staff as well. Also UE boast of their wood roasted beans, apart from some kind of green credentials can anyone think of a way that this would improve the flavour of the coffee instead of making temperature harder to control?
