  1. Quick question for those who have - my wife ordered one with the steel filter as a Christmas present for her mother. What she received was a sealed Aeropress box, containing 350 filters but there's no mention of the steel filter anywhere, and she doesn't want to open the box to check. Anyone here ordered one with the steel filter, and if so, was it in the box or supplied separately? Thanks
  2. This seems like a good price to me. Just thought I'd share it. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gaggia-Classic-Machine-Professional-Stainless/dp/B0000C72XS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1323634063&sr=8-1
  3. I have had a gaggia cubika plus for just under 2 weeks. It kept not coming on, heating up and no lights on the brew button. I found lose wiring on the switches, not sure if this was the cause of all my problems. I booked it in to return to Amazon before I found the lose wiring. So now its going back, what do I choose now? I have been looking at a reconditioned and used classic and baby machines. Has anyone had experience with the reconditioned classics that are on eBay? I don't have a grinder.. can I use pre-ground from the supermarket for now? Sent from my Nexus S using Tapatalk
  4. It seems almost superfluous to review such a well-known site as a coffee equipment supplier. I've been using them since the 90s, when they only sold books, with very few problems. But for what it's worth I recently (2010) ordered an Espresso machine from them at a very competitive price. I paid extra for fast delivery and the machine arrived on time and as described. However, Amazon had not packed the (Gaggia) box in an external shipping box, but had simply stuck a label on the manufacturer's box, which doesn't look designed for this. Someone had handled the shipment roughly at some point, and the machine was actually visible through a hole knocked in the side of the box. Luckily there was no damage to the machine. Amazon does have a system for commenting on the quality of packaging, and I'd encourage anyone with similar problems to use it (as I did). They also have a good returns policy, so any problems can at least be rectified. Note that many independent suppliers also sell through Amazon, so check feedback if you're not buying from Amazon themselves.
  5. I caught Bruce Parry's Amazon last Monday night when he was travelling from the source of the Amazon to the cocaine valleys. He was at a very high altitude and found himself in coffee country. The coffee crops are being ripped out and replaced with Coca at an alarming rate. Coffee cherries are harvested once a year but Coca leaves can be stripped 4 times per year, so they are being given more care and attention in certain areas. This was sad to see but reality tv at its best. If you saw how the raw product of cocaine was created you'd think twice about taking it too. The runoff of the chemicals (kerosene and chlorine amongst other things) seeps directly into the soil where other harvest crops are planted - this has to have a negative impact on their cropping quality. Did anyone else see this?
  6. Just to make folks aware, it might be an idea to update your details and change passwords etc.. I've just had my account hacked and my email address changed to a Russian one ( [email protected] ) luckily the dumb idiots hadn't changed my password - although I didn't notice until after I'd rung my bank and Amazon.. When I spoke to the nice lady at the bank's fraud department, she said the same had happened to her last week. Anyway, I've changed it back, updated and added extra security, given Amazon a polite bollocking for not being able to cancel the changes (many places send an email confirmation of the change, like they did, but also give you the option to cancel the change through the email for up to 24hours. With the addition of 'if this was you, no further action is needed'). Amazon are looking into this now.. Also I've removed all my card details.. My account is blocked anyway until they contact me, but at least I know it's back in my name.
  7. Click here to view the product on Amazon Lowest price this has ever been on Amazon according to camelcamelcamel. I have some Amazon vouchers from Christmas that would make this incredibly cheap and am about to pull the trigger. It's £25-£35 cheaper than the Bonavita version which has very poor reviews on Amazon (all related to incredibly poor reliability). Has anyone on here got one? I know loads of us have the Bonavita. Something intersting I noticed on the Brewista website: "The Brewista Smart Brew Digital kettle is the Next Generation brewing kettle from the guys behind Bonavita." So is this basically the Bonavita Mk2? It seems to have exactly the same feature set except interestingly the Brewista is 1.2L and 1500W compared to the Bonavita either being 1.0L and 1000W or 1.7L and 1500W. Unrelated question: I see a few people have covers for their Bonavita kettles? Where are you getting these? They don't appear on the Bonavita website and a quick google doesn't seem to flag anything up?
  8. A new coffee book has hit the stores in the US and is now available in the UK too. Written by Anette Moldvaer of Square Mile Coffee Roasters, Coffee Obsession is available on Amazon From the 'free look' samples it is worth a read and covers many topics the budding barista could wish to understand At £12 or less (use the link above to compare prices) for a new book this won't break the bank either - leaving you some change to buy more beans and put some of the recipes to the test Please do leave a review once you have purchased and read the book too
  9. Well today I have ordered a Cherub. Purchased from Pete at Espresso Undergroud and at a good price! However I will need a new tamper as my present one is only 53mm. I can not find any info anywhere for what size i will need/is best. Also as I have a load of Amazon credit, anybody recommend a particular one? Thanks
  10. Hello, I've been a lurker a while and used a lot of the knowledge on here to make the decision to buy a Gaggia Classic, a few weeks ago. I am now looking to get a few different items and one of them is a tamper. I have some Amazon vouchers to use up and I was looking at one of these below. Can anyone advise whether any of them are worth getting, as I don't want to shell out too much at the moment. Thanks. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Tamper-Nobile-Plum-58-mm/dp/B004G1N2E0/ref=sr_1_11?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1375791056&sr=1-11&keywords=coffee+tamper+58mm or http://www.amazon.co.uk/RSVP-Coffee-Barista-Espresso-Stainless/dp/B000BUDDRQ/ref=sr_1_5?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1375791655&sr=1-5&keywords=coffee+tamper+58mm or http://www.amazon.co.uk/Tamper-Stampa-Classico-58-mm/dp/B003JZT7OS/ref=sr_1_7?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1375791655&sr=1-7&keywords=coffee+tamper+58mm
  11. Hi I'm wondering if there are any out there that know why it is okay to sell coffee on USA eBay and Amazon yet it I don't see the same coffee products on the UK version ? I imagine this problem must be a well known one, which is why I thought I'd ask here before venturing into eBay land. I'm thinking I may have to open a USA account too!
  12. So I was all set to buy a bean to cup Krups EA8108 from Amazon.de which was a lightening deal at £170, but I chickened out. Now I am thinking of getting an espresso machine + grinder. It will be used mostly at the weekend, for making espressos and americanos. We don't drink coffee weekday mornings with kids etc. So it will be a weekend treat. This is my first puchase of a coffee machine, and I can't afford the earth, and also - it needs to be from amazon (UK) since I have a voucher for there! I was looking at this one (anyone have it): http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00EZBTRDQ?keywords=espresso&qid=1449740376&ref_=sr_1_17&s=kitchen&sr=1-17 And this grinder: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B002OHDBQC?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=ox_sc_act_title_1&smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE Could someone make suggestions perhaps there are cheaper models which would be as good? I know a lot of folk say to spend more on the grinder, but I'm afraid I don't have the budget for it. I'd rather have an eletric one however. I'd be making americanos mostly, so one that has hot water (needs to be hot, missus likes hers hot!) Amazon also have a 4 for 3 offer on home stuff, so if I bought 4 items I could get the cheapest free which is nice. Thanks for the help in advance.
  13. Massive amount of stuff on a four for three deal with Amazon (cheapest item free) This includes loads of coffee gear - full Hario range, Aeropress and even all the Sage machines Loads of non coffee stuff too. A little tip - don't buy a set of filters on the order if you want to make a good saving! http://www.amazon.co.uk/b/ref=amb_link_189191347_1?ie=UTF8&node=6719256031&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=qpe-title-tag&pf_rd_r=0W98BGNY6YY5HFY9HY68&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_p=629430407&pf_rd_i=B001802PIQ
  14. Read about this machine, seen the videos and reviews, all good, if anyone fancies one found them on Amazon at address below, I would get one but I already have a Nespresso machine and don't need the milk attachment, you find any cheaper than £269 or £259 for a Used one. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nespresso-Creatista-Coffee-Machine-Silver/dp/B01NGTI2JU/ref=sr_1_10?s=kitchen-appliances&ie=UTF8&qid=1545210514&sr=1-10&keywords=coffee&refinements=p_8%3A0-100
  15. Hi everyone, new member here! So I have been lurking this website quite a lot recently as I discovered my enthusiasm about coffee and purchased my 3-cup Bialetti Moka Pot. This little machine provided me with some heavenly () brews at home (after a whole lot of experimenting -- some of my brews still taste really bad ) Anyway, I wanted to step up my game and move from using pre-grounded beans to manually grind them. After some searching, I settled on the Hario Mini Mill Slim Hand Coffee Grinder. I was quite ready to purchase it from Amazon before I noticed something odd about the English (and French) page of the product. If you look at the most recent comments from these 2 pages, you can notice quite the amount of negative comments. This is especially true for the ones describing products which were purchased over the past 7-8 months. Also, almost all these comments complain about one of two things: either the plastic part between the driving shaft and lower burr, which deforms quickly after some use, or the (metallic I guess) driving shaft which also deforms and loses its ability to grip the handle. Additionally, when ordered from the french Amazon you can notice that the seller is not Hario but a new seller called swarovski quality (it shows Hario as a seller on the main product page but not on the order page) All of these details led me to believe that the product advertised and sold on Amazon today is no longer the same product as the one that was sold back in 2010. I have two theories: - A new seller is pushing counterfeit product. - The quality of the genuine Hario grinder declined. If you have some inputs on this question, do please provide, I would be very happy to read them. Have a good day!
  16. I'm heading down the road of a naked portafilter and VST type basket but I just wanted to ask what the disadvantages are to having the Gaggia pressurised basket? Reason I ask is that I'm stuck with ground coffee (Has Bean) for the moment and am struggling with brew times. 2oz is being pulled in under 20 seconds - I can't change the grind but am having to stuff the basket (25g+) to get anything close to palatable and the centre screw from the brewhead is marking the puck. Can I just change the basket meantime or is it best to stick with the supplied (pressurised) setup? TiA Al
  17. I recently purchased a Gaggia Classic and Iberital grinder. I have spent hours trying to get the machine setup and happy. I have now lost all interest and patience and just as importantly so has the Mrs. The Classic is on it's way back to Amazon - the grinder has a button fault anyway so hoping that the retailer will accept it back for a refund. I got lots of support from Happy Donkey and guidance but have never been able to get something decent. A mixture of grinds in the cup and the basket sticking to the group head were among some of the frustrations. I now want a machine we can both push a button and it will make a fresh latte/cappuccino in the morning use which is a step up from the nespresso type pods. I am concerned about the delonghi reliability but the cost of the Jura is putting me off purchasing anything at all. Any recommendations on make/model and best place to buy? I'd consider a refurbished unit as long as it came with a warranty. Please don't try to tempt me back to the purist route as we just want something simple I appreciate the lack of control and flavour will not be there. But I have two young kids who would rather have my time than a espresso machine.

  19. Am I missing something or is this cheap for brand new? http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B0000C72XS
  20. Hi there, New to all of this and looking potentially at a refurbished Gaggia Classic. Anybody any experience with refurbished Gaggia Classics? Anything to look out for? I believe rust was an issue... I this still the case? Thanks Gaz
  21. There is an interesting article in the Telegraph regarding Starbucks. Apparently it keeps on making a loss so does not pay any tax compared to Costa which manages to give the Inland Revenue something back. Starbucks according the article is hit each year with a large amount of “administrative expenses” which keep it in the Red. Here is the link for more details:- http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/retailandconsumer/9610391/Starbucks-UK-tax-bill-comes-under-scrutiny.html
