  1. Man i really didn't like the 'bakewell tart' after the recommendations on here... going back to my safe chocolatey comfort type beans instead of attempting to be adventurous! Chocolate point by the kilo.... Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  2. Glad to be a new customer, the chocolate point blend is our new regular 'comfort' bean. 2kg for not much more than 30 squid posted with code, cracking value (pun intended). Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  3. They are indeed, pm on the way. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  4. I've got a new and unused set of cafelat silicon seals - three piston seals and a group head gasket. £15 posted sound fair? 15g vst basket, ridgeless, used just a few times. £15 posted Cheers. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  5. Joey funnel, now used to keep grinds from spilling when stirring, if I bother worth the niche, and every time to raise up the espresso cup closer to the portafilter Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  6. I'll take the almost new ridgeless at £12, need a bit more headroom on occasion than the 18g vst allows. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  7. I've been buying from rave for years too, and come from the opposite direction - raves prices would just remain static for what felt like years and I'd be thinking "how the hell are they still doing that for xxx a kilo?!" then a price rise would kick in and I'd just think it was long overdue. I was only aggrieved when my regular bean (mocha java) got changed to a darker roast - I've struggled to find a reliable alternative ever since, but fortunately they've had a good few reasonable alternatives throughout. On that front, the black cat choc blend was the best alternative find yet, but it h
  8. I do think it's worth getting set up on the londinium forum and registered as an owner with Rhys. Lots of useful info on there, for me the 'wait for drips' mantra on pre infusion was the one that made the most difference to me taste wise. The forum is useful as some of the essential info has been built up over the years and most things are explained well and backed with use experiences - less easy to get overwhelmed as you would searching through threads here!

  9. Just found this thread via a search for more info after reading the 'permanent file' info on preinfusion on the londinium forum. Although I've had my L1 for a couple of years I've only just tried this, and have to say this is probably the single biggest improvement ive managed taste-wise. Thanks all that have contributed, lots of useful extra info here. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  10. Not in the spirit of the thread, but I'd be distraught as I wouldn't be able to afford to replace it! In all honesty, I'd just get a used fracino cherub or similar and keep buying lottery tickets
  11. I'm similar in terms of wanting low maintenance, not much experimenting with different beans etc. I love my L1 (the ease of maintenacne/cleaning just isn't lauded enough in folks' reviews IMO!) and the LR doesn't appeal to me in the slightest as I know for my bean preference the enhanced pre-infusion would not likely be noticed by my taste buds. Save yourself a grand or more and get a pre-loved L1.
  12. Just had to remove my name, I've been trumped by a four year old's birthday party! [emoji2955]

  15. I need some of those, the cork lid ones are doing my head in as only 2 out of the four stay on the jars to keep an air tight seal
