  1. Thanks Paolo, will do. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Hi Paolo, sorry to hijack thread, I’ve got a problem with the anti vac valve on my Vesuvius (factory supplied version 1.1). It’s leaking a lot of steam to the point that I can’t have the steam boiler on. Please could you advise? I messaged you a while ago but appreciate I didn’t provide any information about the machine. Best wishes

  4. There’s some love for this coffee this morning
  5. Fab, thanks M [emoji1] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I’ll take this at asking please M. Are we ok to sort this out after Christmas?
  7. I just keep keep looking at mine longingly. Won’t crack them open until I can taste and smell again (2 weeks and counting). I’ve got a full house on the respiratory tract infection bingo, and laryngitis so I can even complain properly
  8. Nice espresso this morning. Getting brown sugar at the mo. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Wow, my first coffee from Myanmar. It was excellent, thanks so much for the info, would definitely buy something like this again. Thanks all [emoji4]
  10. Really enjoying this. Getting very sweet fruity espresso in 17.5:35 in 27 seconds. Haven’t pushed it further yet as the results have been so tasty. It’s so good I’ve been sneaking in an extra cuppa before work.
  11. Really enjoyed the espresso I made this morning. Went very fine, can’t remember figures. Very nice, fruity, reminded me of one from Guatemala I had recently.
  12. Just picked mine up, about to dive straight in as we’re having a coffee emergency. Lovely cup, thanks so much!
  13. Holding off a bit longer for espresso but went for a big pot of brewed yesterday. Had to stop myself from drinking the full pot, it was absolutely delicious. Went down a storm in the office. On grinding it smells like Christmas cake, in the cup I was getting Thorntons treacle toffee, amazing!
  14. Mine’s still at the Royal Mail office [emoji24]
  15. Huge thanks @fatbiyslim, you got us some absolutely amazing coffee!
  16. Thanks folks, appreciate the kind words. I love this community, which is what it is and why we share our stories (and holiday photos) in addition to the coffee stuff.
  17. [email protected] It’s one of those ‘let’s make the most of the time we have’ sort of things. Another reason I’ve not been around much, we’ve been making lots of nice memories for the wee one.
  18. Same for me. The upgrade really screwed up tapatalk and it just isn’t the same. Went back to work recently and had some bad news about my mum’s health so things feel a bit more hectic too.
  19. Our neighbours are lovely, it was the postie who flipped his lid. It was a redelivery and was utterly livid I didn’t answer the door. When I finally answered, after some fairly aggressive knocking, he went off on a tirade about how I should be in (despite answering the door!). He was really rude and aggressive so I reported it to Royal Mail. The upshot though is he won’t leave parcels with neighbours anymore [emoji22]
  20. I got the red card. Our postie has stopped leaving parcels with neighbours after I didn’t hear the door one day, he went crazy and told me off. Strange chap.
  21. Have only just opened mine, it’s lovely. 17.5g to 35g out in 34s for espresso, with lovely brown sugar, almost molassesy notes coming through but with a really nice acidity. I haven’t peeped yet, anyone else?
