  1. Sorry to derail thread slightly. @KTD, I'm in LFE, literally 5 mins away!
  2. Thanks for the discount code @Black Cat Coffee, I've ordered a couple of bags. Looking forward to receiving them! btw, delivery is still shown as 2.95 on your website for Royal Mail 2nd class.
  3. Hi, will you accept £60 including postage cost? Thanks
  4. Hi @edpirie, I'll take this at asking price. Happy to meet up in London.
  5. OP, I've been making an espresso in the evening into a small liquid tight pot (50ml), letting it cool slightly then lid on and in the fridge. I take it to work the next day decant into a mug and add hot water to it. Whilst it doesn't taste as good as a freshly made espresso, surprisingly it's not that far off, and more importantly, it's way better than the cr4p dispensed from the bean to cup machine at work. Give it a go, nothing to lose, especially if you're sometimes binning it.
  6. Looking good OP. I've just upgraded from a Gaggia Classic to an Expobar Brewtus, and the steaming power is too powerful compared to what I was used to with the Gaggia. I'll need to relearn and hopefully improve to as I never got it right with the Gaggia.
  7. Collected last Sunday. Only managed to get it out of the box last night and made first coffee this morning! So far so good and looking forward to more consistency and greater steaming power compared to my gaggia classic. Thanks @386matt for a smooth and easy sale.
  8. @386matt, on the basis that all is ok, happy to proceed. And thanks for carrying out the checks. I'll pm you to arrange pick up.
  9. @386matt, later this afternoon. Does 4pm work for you? Shall we go to pm.
  10. @386matt, ok,I'll take it at asking. I'm coming from Leicester, so not too far.
  11. @386matt, I can collect today or tomorrow too.
  12. Hi @386matt, is this a dual boiler machine?
  13. From a learning opportunity, why does it need to be running when adjusting finer? And does this apply to grinders where the adjustment is stepped? Thanks.
  14. I'll take the tamping mat please, thanks.
  15. And here's me thinking i'm progressing on my learning...clearly not!! Thank you Mrboots2u, I'll try 1:4 and see how I get on.
  16. Hi @jj-x-ray. I'm having the exact same issues you are with Arcangel. I have pretty much the same setup with a Gaggia Classic (OPV modded but no PID) and Rancillio Rocky grinder. My beans were also roasted on the 14th May. I left mine in the packet in a kitchen cupboard, and squeezed out the gas every now and then. I started using them on the 26th, so just under two weeks post roast date. First shot was very sour - 18g in, 36g out in approx 28 seconds. Tightened the grind by one notch, 18g in, 36g out in approx 32 seconds - still sour. So I tightened the grind by another notch. This
  17. Hi Lee, apologies, I've only just seen this post. I've bought another grinder so won't be putting in an offer. Thanks and GLWS. Paresh.
  18. I got the one you've linked to, but for 8.99 back in January. I think the pocket scale might be too small.
  19. Hi eagerlearner, I too am a newbie with the world of espresso, and having reads lots and lots from this very helpful forum, I purchased a set of scales to weigh the coffee. Key is to ensure the increments of the scale is 0.1g. I bought a cheap one from amazon (Amir scales) for 8.99. This single piece of kit has helped immensely in my learning journey. And you'll need them once get your Mazzer
  20. I'm interested in the grinder, depending on price of course.
  21. Thanks for the code . Coffee has been ordered. I'm trying to get better at ordering coffee before the current batch finishes, allowing time for the new batch to rest too. We'll see how that goes....!
  22. This is very timely as I'm looking to order some Hill and Valley, can I have a discount code too please . Thanks!
  23. Thanks for the helpful replies! I'll take it for £100.
