  1. CoffeeHit are sponsoring a free to enter competition for a set of Brewista brew ratio scales worth £100.00. These are new to the market and not to be confused with other Brewista scales. You can enter via Facebook - go to their page to enter. https://www.facebook.com/coffeehit/?hc_ref=ARSCYlCWejfwYnyPc4h0500pIFIQpEdqGpq3hAHG81hU_py56uuC1n-oWbhRm0sWXXM&fref=nf
  2. Oh dear - my Sette 270W has now developed a fault. I thought I must be living on borrowed time after listening to all the other problems. I got mine from Coffeehit. It's under warranty obviously, but what do you think the chances are of me being able to swap it for either the non-weigh version or something else? It is about 4 months old I think. Need to talk to them today
  3. 25% off. Valid until Sunday. I know CoffeeHit advertise via the useful forum banners so I’m sure it’s ok to mention this!
  4. Any one out there have any experience with the coffeehit group head temperature and pressure portafilter? £100 on coffeehit at the moment. http://coffeehit.co.uk/group-head-temperature-and-pressure-portafilter
  5. I have in my hands a grinder that outperforms the Porlex for a very similar price. The Rhino Hand Grinder - available from CoffeeHit - has been designed to address some of the flaws hand grinders have been known for. I'm currently putting it through its paces and it's ticking all the boxes Initial feedback; Grinding feels stiffer (no play in nut) Easier to grind (more solid and has a larger handle) No wobble in the stem Holds alt least 40g of beans (great for filter where higher doses are used)) Consistent grind size Feel free to ask any questions
  6. You can view the page at http://coffeeforums.co.uk/content.php?373-We-re-excited-to-have-CoffeeHit-onboard-for-another-year
  7. Can anyone recommend any good cups from espresso size to cappuccino (250ish mil). Ideally something thick and chunky (There's a SWMBO joke in there, but she's watching...). CoffeeHit have some nice looking Ancap cups, but my budget doesn't go that far just yet.
  8. I have a particular aversion to paying delivery charges having been spoilt by a number of websites with free shipping over the years. My current basket with coffeehit gets me to about £40 and an order over £75 is free shipping. So if anyone works/lives in Canary Wharf/Stanmore/St Johns Wood and wants to make up the rest of the order (and thereby also get free 'shipping') do let me know. Would like to order in the next couple of days.
  9. Does anyone own one of these? http://www.coffeehit.co.uk/rattleware-3oz-shot-pitcher/p411 If so, I'm wondering whether it be suitable to catch all of the coffee using a bottomless portafilter with VST basket including the not so good pours. Could someone please measure the inner diameter at the top as if the spouts weren't there? Thanks
  10. Morning all, are there any places in London that sell coffee equipment at reasonable prices? I'm in the market for a new tamper, knock box and other bits and thought it might be nice to go and have a look at some stuff in person. I'm north London but willing to travel a little.
  11. I'm looking for some cups for cortado (made with doubles), but I'm struggling to find any nice at the right size. I prefer cups to glasses. What are people here using? Any recommendations?
  12. Looking for an accurate temperature controlled kettle (electric) to accompany my Aeropress whilst traveling away from Home. At the moment the best I can come up with is a Bosch Styline Kettle TWK8631GB but it only has 4 fixed temps. Its OK but I was hoping for something with more accuracy.
  13. Over the past couple of weeks I have been monitoring the replies to this post, where helpful members were nominated by their peers. 2 names kept popping up, Gary Dyke and Mike Haggerton - both of whom have been instrumental in helping members this year and fostering good community relations. I'm pleased to advise that Gary Dyke has been chosen to receive a £25 Voucher - supplied by forum sponsor CoffeeHit Thankyou to Paul and the team at CoffeeHit for their continued support, and to all members who have posted this year! Gary - I will PM you the voucher code to use when ch
  14. I know a few of us have these now so I thought I'd share that Coffee Hit said the burrs they offer for the Major are not the ones intended for the Royal. Although they will fit, according to this page the burrs for the Royal/Stark have more aggressive cutting surfaces (CoffeeHit recommended 151B although I don't see why we couldn't get away with 151C in the UK). Anyone know which burrs we should be buying? I don't want to get it wrong as I don't expect to have to replace them for a good while after this. Edit - on the Mazzer site it says 151B for two phase and 151C for three phase. W
  15. If you have picked up a cheap used SJ (like me) and doubt whether the burrs are genuine or not, this post makes it pretty clear. I definitely have aftermarket burrs, I recognised them instantly. The comparison...ones on the left are aftermarket. My Burrs Pretty obvious to me, I shall be ordering some genuine ones pronto! Hope this post helps other people in doubt
  16. This is one competition that you will want to enter! The team at Coffee Hit have generously donated a stunning prize, containing; 1 x Hario Buono Pouring Kettle 1 x Hario Ceramic Slim Hand Grinder 1 x Hario V60 1 Cup Filter Cone with Filters 1 x Hario Cafe Press Slim (French press) To enter: Get posting - Only members with 5 posts or more will be eligible for entry All members with 5 or more posts will be automatically entered into the prize draw Members who refer a friend who joins and posts (and enters your username in the referrals box) will receive an additional
  17. Hi I've just bought a gaggia classic from amazon. After struggling with the new style pressurised baskets I got googling & found this forum! I have to grind very course to get any flow, is this a characteristic of the pinhole basket? Should I order the old style basket? Regards Dave
  18. Hi all, I never used to think that it mattered what you drank coffee/espresso out of but more recently I'm starting to see the fascination with it, particularly with the thick walled demitasses that people are so keen on. I don't have a very large collection, I have two shot glass with measures on the side which I like the weight of (nice thick glass bases) but I mainly just use them for analysing the shot as it comes out. I've ordered some 2oz Bodum Pavinas from Amazon which I'm quite looking forwards to trying when I get my Gaggia Factory next week. If I'm not bothered about seeing the
  19. I am new to the world of coffee, and still looking to buy a grinder (hopefully a Mazzer Mini) and a machine (probably am HX machine, due to the amount of Americanos I will be making at home!), and am interested in a calibrated tamper to ensure the pressure I apply is consistent. I have seen Espro do a nice one, but am amazed at how expensive they are. Is anyone aware of any decent calibrated tampers that come in under £50 ?
  20. Hi all, So I've had my silvia almost a month now and I'm having a small issue with the steaming side of things. The milk is heating too quick and the window for stretching is so short I'm not getting the best foam that I think I could do and as I drink caps I like lots of foam. I've got the milk very cold and if I open the steam tap just a little I can surf the surface of the milk longer and create more foam but then I don't have much time to texture and aren't getting the best foam. Was thinking of replacing the tip and trying a 2 hole tip, possibly with smaller diameter holes to see if
  21. Just been checking out the Coffee Hit website and it seems they no longer stock ACF cups. The cups they have look similar to ACF cups but no mention is made of the ACF name so have to assume they are not. Can anyone shed any light on this?
  22. Last night I attended a CoffeeHit open day where Paul generously laid on coffee, milk and beer, and allowed all who turned up to spend as much time as we wanted on the La Marzocco Strada coffee machine they have recently installed (and are retailing). The coffee was supplied by Square Mile and was their Autumn Espresso blend. We had a choice of grinders (Mazzer Robur E, Anfim and Mazzer Luigi (Super Jolly Electronic?) as well as pretty much every cafe accessory known to man. The only limitations were our skills (or lack of as we discovered) as we tried numerous extraction techni
  23. hi all, i have recently entered the, what i previously thought of as, simple world of coffee making with the machine pictured. how wrong i was, i didnt even know what a tamper was for example, let alone its importance to the dark art, and as for making frothy milk.........??? anyhow i am making progress and i am turning out pretty decent coffee from costa pre ground but i realise i have a long way to go. i think i will invest in a coffee grinder, can you get a decent one for approx £40 ?, and try that.
