  1. Does that mean the rest of us will start seeing Google ads again?
  2. Light roast is much better, thank you, I find black text on white background far easier to read.
  3. No you weren't! It was the only one I found usable. I find the white text on brown much harder to read. @Tait, please can we have the white back as an option?
  4. I think you'll find he is the owner, or at least part-owner: https://coffeeforums.co.uk/topic/37200-new-managing-partners-for-coffee-forums-uk/
  5. Fantastic day, as usual. Great to see some familiar faces and new ones. Huge thanks to coffeechap and all those involved in setting up beforehand and clearing up afterwards, Rave for giving us free run of their premises, MildredM for the badges, Reiss for the LR, and all those who generously brought along their machines for us to play on. And congratulations to RobW!
  6. I'd prefer collection over shipping, so I'll accept your offer of £1300 @Norvin, thank you. Shall we go to pm? As I was still thinking about the other offer I hope this doesn't contravene any rules.
  7. @Doozerless - thanks for the offer. Just looking at shipping costs and whether I can fit everything in one box - will report back asap.
  8. Shameless bump.... I have the original box so could possibly look at using a courier, at buyer's cost and risk.
  9. @PPapa What aspect have you found most challenging?
  10. And for V60, but they have two Mythos for regular espresso. I've chatted to one of the owners at length, he's decided that using the EK for all espresso just wouldn't suit their workflow. The way I look at it, if I go there in the afternoon I have to drink decaf or I won't sleep, so I get a really tasty espresso
  11. I've used the EK and L1/LR at previous Forum days at Rave, and there's a coffee shop near me which uses theirs for single origin decaf espresso, so I'm not going into this blind, but I do take your point, thank you.
  12. I love the workflow of the Niche and the ability to switch beans so easily. I do find that the Niche adds some earthier tones and seems to take out the "top notes" of lighter roasts compared with my Mythos - I get less of the fruity/floral elements. However the results are still very good and I am finding myself using the Niche rather than the Mythos because it's so easy. The Niche also gets used for Rave's decaf, which is what my husband drinks. For that I don't perceive any benefit with the Mythos. I've got my L1 up for sale currently because I'm interested in what an LR can do with lighter roasts, but then I'm also looking at getting an EK43 to pair with it. I'll keep the Niche though, for the decaf and the occasional medium roast beans. Not sure if that covers what you want to know - please ask if not!

  14. Thanks Lee. Glad to hear the Rocko should be available for a while longer . I'm edging towards making a decision to get an EK, so I'm sorry you're not carrying them any longer but I understand the thinking behind it. Good luck finding a hand grinder you're happy to offer.
  15. Doesn't time fly! Can't believe it's been that long. Still reading on here every day and still learning. Thanks for such a great community Glenn.
  16. Same here, very happy owner. I've had my L1 nearly 5 years and have only had to change the anti-vac valve in addition to seals. No quibble with build quality or QC. If you have a problem you can get in touch direct with Reiss who designed the machine and knows it inside out, rather than getting bounced around customer service.
  17. So that's either Sunday 21st or Sunday 28th? I could make 28th but Sunday 21st is Easter Sunday, probably have family plans that weekend....
  18. Thank you for that, it's really reassuring to hear, and the cost isn't as much as I'd feared. PS you can change your signature now
  19. Jontyuk - glad the L1 arrived safely - you'll love it! @JackBlackmore - do you mind if I ask which courier you used? I've been looking at the possibility of offering to ship mine, but so far the couriers I've found either won't transport coffee machines, won't take the weight, or won't insure over £1000, so I've drawn a blank. Thanks.
  20. @GerryM No problem. Your offer was too low for me to accept anyway. Good luck with the other machine.
  21. @GerryM I have a trip up your way provisionally planned for the second week of March, but in the event it gets changed it sounds as though The Systemic Kid could help out. @The Systemic Kid Thanks for your very generous offer of help, much appreciated.
  22. @GerryM As coffeechap says, they are the pop-off panels, the screw-in ones were on the very early machines.
