  1. You might be struggling in Cowes - Newport is a better bet and not that far from Cowes but I suggest emailing Island Roasted and asking if they can recommend anywhere. I can also ask a member of my team, who lives in Cowes.
  2. Hi Gilly, welcome and a familiar route for many forum members. I think a lever restoration would be a good project for you :
  3. Brilliant - thank you and I'm sorry Ithat I have been late getting this. I'll PM you.
  4. I bought this from Juno earlier in the year and haven't taken it out of the box - I'm going down a different record cleaning route. I paid £80 for it and will sell it for £60 including UK postage. Here's the link with all the information: https://www.juno.co.uk/products/spin-clean-vinyl-record-washer-mkii-record/457593-01/
  5. If money was no object, I'd immediately email Frank (Durra) and ask him what he and Markus could sort out for me. http://www.titus-grinding.de If it was my Niche, I would immediately call Martin or James and beg them to sort something out for me.
  6. +1 for Andrew James (and it turns out that they are useful fore other things, too, which is what persuaded my wife).
  7. Okay, it's (very) expensive* but does anyone else buy Drift? The current issue is cracking with its focus on London. The quality of the writing and photographs is very good, in my view, and it doesn't really matter what city they cover, they do a brilliant job of opening a window on the coffee culture of that city. *It's probably an investment - the first two issues sell for eye watering amounts of money.
  8. Hope and patience. I haven’t looked on the Londinium site to see if anyone is posting one for sale there - although more likely to be a machine outside the UK. Good hoping and waiting [emoji1365] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. For home use, there really is no alternative to Londinium, in my utterly biased opinion, and you would never need to look again at another machine in your coffee making life.
  10. Something similar but different to Brazil happened when, after the war and having destroyed virtually all the agricultural land, the US pumped money into Vietnam to promote coffee growing (robusta) and that had a devastating effect on coffee farmers in other countries. Again...(im)pure politics.
  11. Tag is not proceeding with this - by the time shipping costs were added and the total converted to $, the saving wasn't significant. It was good dealing with you Tag - even though we didn't proceed.
  12. In the interests of transparency I have sent @Tag1260 a PM with the cost of shipping to the USA (minus what shipping within the UK would be).
  13. Thanks - I will get a quote later today. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. And, of course, I owe it all to that lever evangelist, coffee chap...it’s the best cult to become a member of. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  15. A little bump before I try to sell the Kruve elsewhere...
