  1. Thank you for replying. Currently in Scarborough. Cheers Wuyang
  2. Maybe......but my offer should be treated with the same respect as somebody who can afford to pay more.....we all have different budgets and to ignore somebody....I don't think is good forum practice and only creates posts like this. A simple yes......no or what about a haggle, but to ignore.
  3. Has this been sold? Ive had no response to my offer which i made over a week ago yet you've been very active on the forum.
  4. Ill make a cheeky offer of £75 posted. I have a bit of a love hate relationship with the lido and sold my previous ones because the adjusting ring can be challenging to say the least. Other thing I had with my lido 3 was the handle folded on me a couple of times when grinding. However still a bloody good grinder. Cheers Wuyang
  5. Mazzer jolly seams big at first, but after a while you really don't notice it, especially if the bean hopper is removed. Makes a good pairing with the gaggia.
  6. Never sunny when I lived there! I do miss the countryside around there though.
  7. The best travel mug I've come across are made by contigo.....buy the easy clean one. I take mine out walking or motorbiking......in which case you find these mugs lose most the heat through the lids so I put them in a nice thick glove, lid side into glove...works a treat. Loads of reviews on amazon.
  8. I'm liking your style . I'm somebody who suffers with my muscles, hand grinding for me is a work out, but I'll do it for as long as I can......incorporating it with something else certainly helps.
  9. I like the simplicity of the moka.....although I prefer stainless given nobody seems to know if aluminium is bad for you or not......I've got a lovely gaggia at home, but the aluminium boiler does make me think twice. I think mastering the moka is no different or less challenging than mastering any other high end espresso machine. I drink half moka half milk....and I love it. To me there is no right and wrong, just what works for you personally. Very versatile Raw bit of kit that keeps coffee real and affordable.
  10. Whats postage for something like this......in the uk
  11. What's the stemming capability of one of these like compared to say a gaggia classic? Also, what's the boiler made from? cheers wuyang
  12. As long as it's a technivorm you'll be happy. Look good and built well.
  13. I maybe way off.....but I reckon the technivorm gave a richer deeper coffee......you could still pick up the flavours if that way inclined, but I reckon the broader options of the behmor allowed for more fine tuning of your brew flavours. If it also matters to you what it looks like on the worktop, then for me the technivorm everyday of the week....the behmor in my eyes looked like something breville would knock up.....but each to their own. I think at the end of the day two similar but very different machines...the behmor being able to do a decent amount of volume and a small cup, but the technivorm only one cup. For me i would buy the technivorm, I can see the appeal of the behmor, but like the designer said to me it's not designed for small amounts and that's what causes the leaks. Unfortunately for me I had one that did spew it down over the controls.
