    Morning all, I have decided that I fancy a smaller basket. At present I have a 18g VST. Here is what I'm considering: 15g VST (range 14-16g) Fancy this for the challenge that it seems to offer. 15g Decent (range 12-18g) 18g Decent (range 15 - 21) Not heard much about decent baskets, anyone got experience of them? 14g IMS (range 14-18g) I am told IMS are more forgiving, do I go for this as the cheapest and easiest option. Thoughts please...
  2. Just reading around and stumble upon the decent espresso machine being built. Sounds like it ticks all the boxes. Anyone heard any more about it??
  3. Hi, I recently bought a Decent Portafilter Stand (For all portafilters - spouted and bottomless). After receiving it I realised that it isn't compatible with Gaggia Classic portafilters. ("Works with virtually all 58mm standard portafilters. Note: the "wings" on your portafilter need to be 90° angled from the handle, not rotated sideways." - Decent's website) I am too lazy to send it back/ship it. But if anyone would like to come to west London (Acton) and pick it up I would be happy to let it go for £20. The price for one of these is £40 with shipping on Decent's website. Or £6
  4. I've been watching the development of the Decent espresso machine with interest. Looking at the graphs of flow and pressure it occured to me that on an LR if you require a shot of about 34g the lever will only be about half way through its travel, meaning that the pressure at the end of the shot is still about 9 bar, instead of trailing off as can be arranged on the Decent or the Vesuvius or indeed and old L1.
  5. Anyone else keeping an eye on these? Their 'simple' scale looks identical to the Brewista but for a much more decent (ahem) price of £35 shipped to the UK. Or their regular 'decent scale' - Interesting design and again at a reasonable price of £90 compared to other scales with the same feature set. Both shipping in Jan.
  6. OK, I know the answer is probably going to be 'no' but after a weekend with a new grinder and some wonderful beans from Happy Donkey, I've now run out so thought I'd pick some up from 'off of the shelf'. I got some Lavazzia freeze dried beans, but they're pretty rank in comparison. I see some people get the Costa beans for emergency use - will they be any better? Any other brands worth a go in a push? Luckily, I pass a little coffee stall that sells fresh beans on the way to work so can always pick some up from there in an emergency but in the meantime...any ideas?
