  1. The mechanics of making a coffee are not quite as simple as pressing a button but not difficult. The resultant coffee far exceeds what we have been used to and I think is limited only by the skills (or lack of) of the barista. Fully meets wife acceptance factor criteria although I will be monitoring the instant coffee levels.
  2. I've had the scales for a while and use them for baking. They came from Bakery Bits.
  3. I think it was about 12 years old. Never thought of it as a laser printer until now!
  4. We spent a very enjoyable afternoon at Bella Barista with Claudette who explained the various options and took us through making our first proper espresso. We came away proud owners of a new coffee machine, grinder and goodie bag. Highly recommended.
  5. Handel: Concerti Grossi, Op. 6
  6. Another Trailer Park Boys followed by Better Call Saul. Both on Netflix.
  7. Are the Brita Purity C filters more effective than the jug filters? I was hoping to be able to plumb in my (yet to be acquired) machine using something like the C500. My tap water is Calcium Carbonate: 309 mg/l, Alkalinity 245 mg/l, pH 7.3, TDS 345 mg/l according to the latest published water quality data for my supply zone. Would a Brita Purity C500 be suitable?
  8. An episode of Trailer Park Boys followed by The Returned.
  9. Teodor Currentzis – Mozart: Le nozze di Figaro
  10. Had a very enjoyable visit to Paddy & Scott's in Abbeygate Street this afternoon. Mine was a black espresso with a maple & pecan danish and the wife had a cappuccino and chocolate and coconut slice. Delicious! Gave a new impetous to our search for a replacement for our now extinct bean to cup http://coffeeforums.co.uk/showthread.php?22732-Replacing-bean-to-cup-machine.
  11. How long did you have your Quickmill Silvana?
  12. We are hoping to go later this week.
