Hi Everyone I'd just like to start by saying how much I have enjoyed the learning experience since I joined the forum last year! My current set-up is a Brasilia RR55 grinder & a Quick Mill Anita Espresso machine and I have been gradually improving in what I am able to get out of the set-up thanks to lots of the advice gleaned from this forum. One of the things that I have learnt since being here is that you should look at getting the best grinder possible because this has the greatest improvement 'in the cup' and this was what I was intending to do - having recently placed a 'wanted' listing for a Ceado E37s (although I was also considering getting the Compak E8 currently in sales corner as well). All was going well until, just the other day, I read about the new Londinium R. After doing much more research on the machine, I am very tempted to 'push the boat out' and get one of these instead of getting the new grinder, as I have always liked what I have read about lever machines and the few things that did concern me about them appear to have been addressed on the new Londinium R model. I am also a bit concerned that to do this would go against a lot of what I have learned on the forum since joining as I would be doing things 'the wrong way round'!! WHAT SHOULD I DO?? Options, as I see them, are: 1) Do as planned and just upgrade the grinder (which I can afford to do) 2) Sell the Anita and put the money towards the Londinium, keeping the RR55 (if you think this would be up to the job) 3) Upgrade both - this option would also require me to sell my 'high-end' MTB to find the extra funds (and risk marital disharmony for a while) 4) Stick with what I've got for now and work on improving my technique Any advice greatly appreciated! Graham
