  1. Hi all, I'm looking to upgrade form my Krups GVX2 and after quite a bit of reading I'm concluding that if the ideal home grinder exists, it's not available until next summer. That said, I want to get something sorted sooner, and at the moment I'm leaning towards finding a secondhand Super Jolly, which would fit on my one bit of kitchen counter with unrestricted headroom. What I'm less sure about is how friendly they are to single shots, although I'd have a go at either improving the doser or replacing it with a funnel per some of the posts on here if that's the main change that is neede
  2. Good morning coffee lovers, I am new to the forum and also a beginner for coffee making. Most likely, I've been doing thing wrong (cringe moments for experienced people, I presume!) so I'd like to ask for wisdom and advice from the forum users. I would like to ask for advice on grind set up on DeLonghi KG79 for different brewing methods My current set-up is this (and I want to learn with these before I upgrade to something more serious): Coffee 1 - Lidl Bellarom Gold 100% Arabica ground coffee Coffee 2 - Bulk-buy Fairtrade whole coffee beans Grinder - DeLonghi
  3. Hi all. New to the forum - have been reading avidly for a few days. Over the years I've used a cafetiere, bialetti, v60 and now am almost solely using a porlex hand grinder and aeropress. Thinking it's about time I got myself an espresso machine but my budget will be fairly limited so I was thinking along the lines of the gaggia classic, but had a few questions 1. It sounds like the 2015/16 model isn't that great going by the opinions on here - is it really that bad and why? I've seen that the rancilio silvia is mooted as an alternative but this looks quite a lot more expensive. Are there
  4. I'm moving house next week and having a bit of a clear out. Don't know if this is of any use to anyone... It's a Bodum Chambord French Press with scoop and box, but it's missing the glass (it's not like it's a key component...) My girlfriend bought this for me for my birthday last year, but the glass was cracked so they sent another press and I just kept the frame. I've had a look on Amazon and the Chambord is £25 new. A replacement 8 cup/ 1 Litre glass can be bought for £8-10 on eBay/Amazon. I'm after £9 delivered. Could be a way for someone to save a few quid on a B
  5. Hi guys, I'm looking for a faff free alternative to the usual Gaggia Classic machine. I want to try something a bit more straight forward and have considered going back to a cafetiere for a while, but then I thought what about a stove top? I generally drink milk based coffee, but I think I could do without the frothing etc and use boring old plain milk. As much as I enjoy a cappuccino, I also like "normal" coffee. What is the score with stove tops? Easy to make? Faff free? Any thoughts?
  6. Hi there, been lurking for awhile now and figured I would finally sign up. I currently use a Moka, Cafetiere & that dreaded instant! I find Moka coffee has great body and rich flavours but its hard to identify any nuances so thought I would start here. Looking to take the plunge into buying a Grinder, Machine or other Coffee Gizmo that will deliver the most out of the beloved bean. It's a bit daunting starting off though as I am fairly unsure what to begin with, Gaggia Classic, Chemex etc, always contrasting opinions on what's best. My budget is fairly flexible, although I
  7. Feedback welcome guys, I've just made a film showing how to make coffee at home using a cafetière (or French press): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8qPIA5iERA It's was tricky to give enough technical detail whilst keeping the film short & accesible (i.e. trying to ensure it's not boring!). I hope it's of interest - if you have the time and the inclination, your comments are very welcome (I'll be tweaking it over the next few weeks based on feedback).
  8. Hi everyone im new to.the forums I've read a few posts but was wanting some help im new to coffee i drink at the moment a coffee for the cafetiere which is ok but prefer the ones from the highstreet coffee shops but would like to be able to get great coffee at home and was wondering where i should start and what equipment i should buy any advice would be good Thanks Owen Sent from my GT-S5830 using Tapatalk 2
  9. Is a french press a cafetiere? :confused:
  10. Just ordered an Aeropress after reading lots of good things about them. What put me off, initially, was whether the paper filters affect the taste. When I last used a filter drip system, many moons ago, there were concerns that paper filters used chlorine bleached paper, I recall, and this adversely affecting the extraction. Can't find anywhere whether the Aeropress filters use chlorine bleached paper. Then I saw that Hasbean and Cream Supplies offer a choice of stainless steel filters - coarse and fine so I decided to go for a fine one to give it a try and compare to the supplied paper ones.
  11. So yesterday was a washout with only the cafetiere for company. I wasn't feeling great so didn't have much to drink (or eat). Came down late this morning to discover two packages waiting for me - superb, coffee and bits...... On went the Classic and I opened the first pack of pre-ground (yes I know) and the second package which contained tamper, shot glasses, jug etc. I washed everything whilst waiting for the machine to heat up - I also visited the 'tube' and refreshed my memory on exactly what to do. I duly weighed out 18g of coffee, did the biz with the paperclip (WDT is too fa
  12. OK, I've put this off for a while, but it's time to show my ridiculous collection of coffee stuff... So, far back left-to-right theres an Eva Solo Cafe, My smaller Cafetiere and my melitta cone holder. Forward left to right is my Ocaree TCA-5 Syphon brewer (Some excellent SqM Yirgacheffe), Aeropress, some milk jugs infront of that. Very from is my 1g scales for measuring water, digital thermometer,(A couple of delicious HasBeans) a handle-less milkjug which I brew into. On the grinder I use a few ramakins for transfering coffee, I also keep my 0.01g scales for measuring beans under t
  13. Visited Tapped and Packed today. Super-friendly place, felt busy and lively but there was no trouble finding a place to sit (though I came at a somewhat off-hour). They make both espresso-based drinks and brewed coffees, using your choice of brewing methods (filter, cafetière, siphon or aeropress). It was afternoon by the time I visited so I limited myself to just one drink, a ristretto. Theirs was sweet and syrupy, as delicious as any ristretto I've had. I'm eager to go back and try more of their offerings. The food looked pretty good too. It was also the kind of place where
  14. Hello, everyone. So pleased to have discovered the forum, and learned a great deal from posts. I've jumped through most of the hoops and am due to open a small cafe/gallery (22-24 covers) in a rural/seaside location towards the end of this year. At first I will be serving cafetiere coffee, and grinding the beans on the premises. I have the Kitchenaid Artisan grinder in mind for its very good spec. and attractive appearance for the counter top, and also bcs it should tie with a commercial machine once I'm on a sure footing. Rancilio Rocky also excellent, I believe. I've also lined up pot
  15. Hi, My first post be easy on me Recently got myself a espresso maker, progressed from cafetiere on to a moka pot and now my Gaggia pure.. Im really getting into this coffee thing, trying to get the perfect cup.. Ive alway used Illy coffee, tried lots of others but always come back to that. When I got my machine it came with some gaggia pods, which were quite good. I mainly drink a "Long Black" basically an Americano with a double instead of a single shot of espresso. I have tried adding the espresso shots to the hot water, as I heard you lose less crema this way, as opp
  16. Hi all.... looking thru my cupboard the other day I found a Russel Hobbs grinder that I used some time ago for my caffitiere (??) so as I as yet not purchased a grinder I put some beans in and ground them on the finest setting... loaded the grind into the Classic (after pressing etc) and switched on. Result.... the water shot thru leaving me with a non creama light brown liquid. The grinder wil now be skip bound leaving me still uncertain as to which grinder to go for without taking out a mortage. I am thinking about the Dualit grinder...any comments PLEASE will be most helpfull. Take c
