  2. Specialita - even got a free bag of beans too!
  3. just got a Eureka grinder from them. Ordered Wednesday pm - delivered Thursday am. Excellent company to deal with. Highly recommended
  4. I went from a Silvia to a Sage DB recently, very pleased with it. Still using a Vario at the moment, but thinking about an a grinder upgrade In the near future, haven't decided what to go for as yet.

    Rave flash sale

    Rave Easter sale until noon tomorrow (27/03/18) 15% off!
  6. Hi, having upgraded to a Sage DB, wondering what my V3 Silvia is worth, purchased new from HasBean in 2011, well maintained with additional naked portafilter and triple basket. Thanks
  7. Agreed, it does seem to be the most consistent so far. Pleased with the machine, steams a bit slow, even after increasing the temp,good microfoam though!
  8. Still playing around with the DB, just wondering which extraction method is preferred by other users, Manual - Timed - or Volumetric? This is a new area for me as my previous machine was a Silvia!
  9. Well so far so good, getting decent shots, and steaming the milk produces excellent results. Very pleased at the moment!
  10. The Double Boiler arrived, unpacked and set up - impressed so far, looks well thought out. now the fun begins!
  11. Ordered my Sage DB from Lakeland, good price ATM plus if for some reason 'we' don't like it when it arrives they will collect it FOC. Plus the 3 year Guarantee is a bonus. Watched all the videos (Seattle Coffee Gear mainly) and checked out the posts on here so fingers crossed. It will be paired with a Mahlkonig Vario for the time being, and will see how it goes, and upgrade the grinder at a later date. Not sure if I will bother with the White Glove service, again will have to see.
  12. After happily using my Silvia for ages, decided to pull the trigger and upgrade to the DB. hopefully arriving in the next few days. Any tips- suggestions welcome!
  13. http://www.coffeehit.co.uk stock them and they do fit! £1.01 + postage. But take care exploring the site.. lots of nice things to buy!
  14. So it's Coffee - Cakes/Biscuits - Beer that's me sorted then:)
  15. If I were you I would have a full set of blood tests done, friend of mine had similar symptoms and it showed an iron deficiency and low sodium levels, blood tests showed this up now sorted out!
  16. Hi Nick Small Batch Coffee in Hove are good Red Roaster in St James street Brighton worth a go, there was a shop in Rottingdean that relocated to Lewes I will try to find more info if you like (I am in Peacehaven by the way)
  17. Very clever system! And at least you can easily see the water level
  18. I have an 18g LM basket for my Silvia courtesy of a member on here, who I believe got it from Coffee Hit, fits the standard portafilter with no problems, although it doesn't click into place as firmly as the Rancilio basket but it holds well enough.
  19. Fairfax coffee have come back from the dead with new premises etc. And are doing a Silvia for £469 at the moment
  20. The Mascara snake is fast and bulbous! I was shanghied by a high hat beaver mustache man and his pirate friend!
  21. Another Captain Beefheart fan! If you haven't heard it you must listen to the live radio version of Orange Claw Hammer with Frank Zappa find it on You Tube... brilliant!
  22. Welcome indeed to yet another Sussex member, loved the video you did a while back of a day in the shop at Hove I think it was

    Wasting milk

    Maybe so that there is not enough milk for the jug, but if you only want enough milk for one cappuccino then you are wasting a lot of milk by filling the jug more than you need
  24. Think it's Puly Baby you need for de-scaling not Puly Caff
