  1. Hi Everyone! My wife and I were not that much into coffee 11 years ago. My wife mostly drank tea, I would say about 95% of the time, and only had coffee at MacDonalds or the Subway. I did not even do that. I was not much into hot drinks at all!! One of our wedding gifts ten years ago was a drip coffee maker. So we bought some freshly ground coffee and tried it. It was bitter and strong, but we enjoyed having a common activity and drink. So to commemorate a common interest, we bought ourselves a DeLonghi bean to cup.

  2. Hi Everyone! I am new to CFUK and wanted to introduce myself. My wife and I got into coffee around the time we got married in 2010. Before that, I was not that much into tea or coffee.

Does this suggest too coarse a grind/too light a tamp or an issue with a valve in the machine? Thanks for any suggestions
  4. Hi Got my Mazzer Mini today and I'm delighted - thank you to Jason. A few photos of the beast below - I'm really amazed at how quiet it is running. Bearing in mind the only previous experience of grinders was a Russell Hobbs we dinky thing that sounded like a strimmer when on. Surprised by the wee counter on the doser flappy thing to count the actuations. Pretty cool. I wonder how you could reset it? Also unsure as to how I go about dialing it in. Where do you start from - all the way down and ease it back? It's a hell of a tight when it arrived, maybe due to the cold, b
