  3. I am, and as far as I know we are the only speciality coffee shop in Bedfordshire We also won Best indie coffee shop in Bedfordshire at the Beds food and drink awards, even had a mention recently in the sunday times. we are based in Leighton Buzzard and called Espresso-Head
  4. Thanks for your comments guys. ill just keep an eye on it for now, I just wanted to understand really why this may have changed as nothing that we have done has been altered, and the coffee is still the same blend and according to the roaster has no change either. its just odd it’s been stable for nearly 3 years but for some reason has changed recently. and @ajohn we are using a la marzooco fb80 machine
  5. Unlikely that there is channeling and the taste is fine. its just something I’d like to understand as it’s run differently for the last 2 years but for some reason has changed in the last couple of days. Will keep an eye on it as if it increases by any more I’d assume it would taste over extracted. and not using bottomless filters as we occasionally split the shot so a spout is better for our use. its the same with multiple baristas making drinks we would leave me to assume its a pressure change on the machine rather than anything else. although the pressure looks like it hasn
  6. Hi all, im having a bit of a tough one and wondered if I’m missing something. for the past day or so I am having issues with the start of my espresso pours, usually I’d expect the pour to start around the 6 second mark, however for some reason at now starting at 11-12 second each time. now the confusing part is that I am still dosing at the correct amount, the grind size is spot on, the yield is correct and the extraction time overall is correct. ive tried adjusting these variables however because everything else is correct any adjustment knocks out my yield or extraction time
  7. Any movement on price for this? i can get one for cheaper than this through a supplier, and am seriously tempted! just thought I’d see if your still needing to get rid first?
  8. would prefer to sell as a pair really, sorry.
  9. Hi all, im selling a white barista hustle tamper with an additional stainless steel base plate. Used once but prefer My other tamper so haven't used it again. Its a 58.4mm size for VST baskets, tamper body has a double flange to eliminate the vacuum effect. £40 posted.
  10. I'd be interested in giving this a test if your still after people? I have quite a few customers who prefer to use reusable cups, so this could be a winner
  11. Thanks guys, it was the anti vac valve. just needed tightening. booked in for a full service on tuesday anyway, but wanted to double check. and the spade connector is slightly scorched, but isn't posing a problem
  12. Thanks guys, to confirm it is the top piece you can see in the centre of the pic (it has a couple of drops of water on) it is continually dripping which is causing some annoyance as it is hissing when it comes into contact with the hot metal and dropping onto the counter. any idea on where to get this part? As this doesn't seem to appear on any la Marzocco pets diagram for spares, and I'm having trouble getting hold of any engineers! :/ appreciate your help!
  13. Hi all, quick issue I'm having today, just started hearing a hissing sound from my machine (La Marzocco FB80) had a quick look and there is a small amount of water on this top connector which is evaporating and causing thenhissjng sound. cant get hold of my engineer at the moment, but wondered if anyone knows what this connector or valve is for, as it doesn't appear to be connected to anything... safety pressure valve seems to be fine.
  14. Just a quickie, I dont often make tulips but but have decided to start playing with them...
