  1. I am thinking of selling my Chemex. I have a v60, kalita, aeropress and clever. I have tended to use the Chemex for big volumes, for example, when I go away and have a number of people drinking. The problem is that although I love the look of the Chemex and the cool filter papers, in the end, it just seems a bad way of brewing coffee. I find that the process is really inconsistent. Trying to get large volumes of water through the tiny hole just seems really unreliable and inconsistent. I am not sure if I should change my technique? I find that, to make a litre of coffee, i have to grind the beans so coarse to get the water through in a reasonable time that the coffee often ends up tasting sub optimal. Should I keep the chemex dream alive? Or shall I just to delicious clevers if I need a litre of brew? Thanks
  2. Hope you brought a hand grinder and clever dripper [emoji3]
  3. Such a cool surprise to get the cup! The beans also smell yum... excited about this... thanks hairyhogg and all involved...
  4. Thanks on both counts - signature deleted and I will have a good look at the stuff you sent... good luck!!

  6. Hey webdoc I am interested to find out how you get on with switching to a conical valve... did you buy the parts from la marzocco? I was keen but it seemed a bit pricey... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I think there were only 14 competitions so I don’t think they could have gone any lower! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. This might be but obvious and you have tried it but have you checked if it is set for tank or line fed? There is an option within setting you need to change... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Totally agree about crankhouse being excellent... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Hi think you are right but true engineer who came to device my Gs3 said it had some scales. He said if needs must south west water would get water from elsewhere and re-direct.... I suspect it is old scale from before I bought it but I was being extra cautious... I think Grumpydaddy provides a very good summary... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I don’t know about anyone else but we really enjoyed the event... we had 4 of us doing then cupping together and it was really fun. The most evident thing was how delicious all of the coffees were... square mile really are a top roaster. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  15. Hi just to say there is a collection of coffee forum folk in Plymouth. If you are down our way then get in contact for an espresso. I use a Franke filter to remove the chlorine etc and thinking of adding a bwt filter to avoid scale.. in parallel - water passing through both Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
