  1. That could be spun for marketing purposes. "Londinium: for INSTANT and TOTAL extraction, with perfectly even distribution (all over your kitchen)"
  2. It's in the manual to be fair... in what has to be the best diagram I've ever come across. I think those star-looking-things are supposed to be teeth. Would make some nice wall art above the machine.
  3. For transparency, @qazwsx and I have settled on a meeting location and are going ahead with the deal.
  4. I could be persuaded to meet you somewhere halfway-ish if that helps?
  5. This could work - I'm back from hols today, and will be around all weekend. I don't often find myself Bristol-way any more.
  6. So I'm doing a lot of travelling over the next few weeks and I'm not sure my wife wants this sitting around in the kitchen for that time If anyone wants this and can collect it, or meet tomorrow (i.e. Sat 6th Apr), I may be willing to chop a fair bit from the price.
  7. @Junglebert Still interested?
  8. Thanks - a gift from a friend of mine a while back https://www.stellavie.com/products/silkscreen-print-exceptionally-great-espresso-art-and-science-black-creme-white
  9. I'm in Mapperley, just a few miles outside city centre.
  10. Having upgraded to an LR, this has to go. Purchased new in Feb 2015, has been used with nothing but Volvic, regularly cleaned and flushed, average of around 4 drinks per day. It's in good condition, with the expected marring on the top due to cups living there, and some small scratches on the right hand side that are pretty subtle, you can see one of them in the reflection of the black PF handle. A whole bunch of accessories included: Wood handled bottomless PF (drilled out to be actually bottomless, as opposed to the stock Fracino open bottom) Wood handled single spout PF NR E61 double spout PF (lugs ground since they were too thick) Stock double, 2x single and blind baskets IMS shower screen fitted, stock screen included Cafelat 8mm silicone grouphead gasket fitted, 8.5mm also included 4x2mm steam tip fitted, 2x2mm also included BWT filter collar Paperwork and packaging Asking £600 - collection/exchange only for now. I'm based near Nottingham, but can travel to meet somewhere mutually agreeable to exchange as well https://i.imgur.com/fWd3ef4.png https://i.imgur.com/u9vv1bE.png https://i.imgur.com/qoMXA5f.png https://i.imgur.com/q7I1Dn6.png https://i.imgur.com/EUobTud.png
  11. I picked up some Lockhills yesterday, and noticed that the calcium content is higher than has been previously posted... 26 vs 20 - with everything else the same. This would be just enough to push it outside the sweet spot though. Anyone else notice this?
  12. I'm rather keen to attend this, but Mrs_Tad already has something booked with some of her friends for the day, which means my daughter is in my care for the day. I mean, she's generally interested in the big shiny thing in the kitchen, and enjoys using her own toy espresso machine, but 6 hours of coffee may be a bit much for a 6yo to take in :/
  13. Having been lustfully looking at a Londinium machine since it was the L1, I finally caved. Loving it... was a bit intimidated by it to start with, but surprisingly easy to get to grips with. I do need to build a little coffee paraphernalia shelf behind the grinder though. Most of the bits live in the drawer underneath, but it's not deep enough for the double PF, shaker, tamper etc.
  14. 1.25kg of Rocko Mountain delivered this morning. First shots through the LR* Life is good. (*well, third shot through the LR... I knew I would have to grind finer, but didn't want to overdo it to the point of choking it. First shot through in 17 sec, including PI. I had a sip out of morbid curiosity. It was not good. Second shot better. Third time a charm)
