Currently I have a PID modded gagia classic and a baratza preciso. After spending a lot of time and effort sorting out a doge 63 grinder (see this thread for details) I just cant get it past the kitchen police long enough to even give it a proper try out. Not sure if i should be looking to upgrade my grinder for a better but more aesthetically pleasing model i.e. mignon, or upgrade the espresso machine to a small second hand e61 head based machine if i could find one. I know a few people will suggest going for the niche grinder but to me £500 seems a lot to spend on a grinder and I have always been a buy second hand and fix it type of person. Trouble is whatever i go for cant be to huge or ugly to be refused entry into the kitchen. Any suggestions welcome.
Hi all, Hoping you can help - I have recently purchased a Atom 60E off a forum member (thanks Stuart!), and now need to get to grips with dialling it in - not using it as a single doser as flat burrs aren’t the most forgiving for retention. So I find myself now having had it a day struggling to dose by time (and weight and then relate that back to the time), so my shots are all over the place to say the least. It is a learning curve for me - being a previous single doser with the trusty Feld2, but light beans were not very forgiving on my arms! So my question is - can you recommend any reasonably priced beans (not Starbucks/costa etc.) that I can dial in to get used to the new grinder, or if anyone has any tips? Ideally looking to buy a KG - not looking to spend more than £25 shipped, and have already tried the Rave signature blend/ have a Pact subscription monthly, so looking for something different to those really. If anyone has any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated! Cheers all!
Hi all, I am a beginner and have my eyes set on a GC. What do you think of this edition by James Adams sold by gaggia direct UK? Do you think the 'unusual' colour will affect the resale value if I want an upgrade? See link below https://www.gaggiadirect.com/refurbished-machines.html#!/%60Refurbished-Gaggia-Classic-Red-Pre-2015/p/131478280/category=9805018 Also, I have been struggling to decide on a grinder for espressos. Can anyone help? My budget is around 120. Thanks!
