  1. I just had the white glove service from Sage. It was easily arranged by an initial email to Coffee Classics who followed-up by phone. The chap drove to Aberdeen from the midlands but had some other visits on the way and has more tomorrow in Dundee and Edinburgh on the way back. He called me on-route to confirm ETA. Since I have had my Dual Boiler and Eureka Mignon grinder for a while now, I have the basics more-or-less in hand but it was good to confirm I was pretty much right in how I am using it for now. The most important thing to me was going through the cleaning and de-scaling procedures.
  2. The coffee gods were looking down on me today, all my deliveries came earlier than expected and all within half an hour of each other! Thanks to @DaveP for the packaging the Mignon so well and sending so promptly and thanks to @Juba for sending his left over acrylic pipe to make a single dose hopper - You've got to love this forum! Now how long will the four bags of HasBean last...
  3. My lovely setup that I'm very proud of.
  4. Hi All.. after a few different coffee machines ranging from an old delonghi up to a Sage Barista I have finally bit the bullet to go for something a bit higher end for better steam. Had to get past the Mrs for design to fit the kitchen so have opted for a Simonelli Musica (yes with lights..!). Will be reading the forums with interest, first port of Call for grinder advice, narrowed down to Eureka Mignon, Malhonig Vario or Barratza Sette 270w but will post later for advice! Also potential black Sage Barista for sale! looking forward to reading and sharing, Lee
  5. Bella Barista have advised me to hold off buying a Mignon Mk2 until the new range comes in, which will hopefully be sometime next month (March 2018) They have said that all three will be improvements on the Mk2, and that the cheapest of the three (the "Silenzio") will be just £289. They are slightly larger, and won't have the shield logo on the front, which I always liked. Eureka are apparently planning on continuing production of the Mk2 for another year or so, which seems a little strange if the new ones are being marketed as cheaper and better. Do you think we might se
  6. So, I picked up a new Mignon mk2 a few days ago and have been dialling it in ever since. On 2 different roasts i've had no issue, but whilst trying to dial in a bag of La Cabra i've come across a strange issue where the only way I can get an acceptable grind level is to have the dial at around 0.5. The only issue is at this point, I can hear the burrs touching. If I open it up half a stop they no longer sound as if they're touching.. but i'm getting a thin, watery, shot. It's no use. For reference, the beans are a few weeks old and the machine i'm using is a new NS Oscar II. Has anyo
  7. This is how I use my eureka Mignon. Using a ceramic ramekin means I can easily stir the grinds, being ceramic means I don't get any static. I'm Always making two drinks at once so find it easier to just halve the amount that comes out as it can vary slightly by up to a gram either way over the 2x15gms I'm aiming for. I've adopted this method because I don't like grinds getting on the worktop. The scales are on top of an espresso cup that fits perfectly between the two feet of the grinder. The scales are tared with the ramekin on them. I've got the timer set to dispense 15
  8. This could potentially be another OCD project methinks. Like the time I got a scratch on the car and I wondered how the heck I could get that away. Now many years later I am more than happy to discuss clear coat hardness of any given car/make model, how many microns you could polish off using this or that product.....you get the idea and maybe you have a similar experience :-) Nonetheless, this is the type of projects I really like. Learning new stuff, perfecting techniques and talking to and meeting new people interested in the same :-) Our setup is a Profitec Pro 300 bought at a lo
  9. Recently bought a Profitec 300 dual boiler and now looking for a grinder that can handle both espresso (I do not make turkish) and french press. Thoughts?
  10. ​non grinder in full chrome. Comes with instruction book, a new set of burrs and the remainder of the Bella Barista warranty which runs until February 2019. The grinder has only had light use as a second grinder mainly for de caff, and is sitting idle. I am based in the WN6 area of Wigan close to junction 27 of the M6. I would prefer collection as I don't have the original box. £230
  11. This is my first machine and grinder. It has been a learning curve over the last 16 months as to what the Silvia likes and doesn't.
  12. I'm normally in Geordieland but I'm out here working in Papua New Guinea. I've been a member for a while but have never posted in the past. There are plenty beans in the airport but I need some recommendations either from here or when I get home. This is for my daily espresso fix when I get home on the 15th Dec. Cheers
  13. Hello All New user and second thread already - hope no one minds! I am now considering between two options. I only intend to drink espresso and occasionally have a latte / cappuccino - I will not be using a French Press or anything else, just the machine. 1). Duo Temp Pro alongside a Eureka Mignon. Advantages: - Better grinder. Disadvantages: - None of the advantages below. 2). Sage Barista Express. Advantages: - Pressure Gauge (potentially useful to someone who is new). - Greater variability for PID than DTP. - Better aesthetics (in my op
  14. I'm posting this here, as my other thread in the Eureka area is a little dead! (https://coffeeforums.co.uk/showthread.php?43057-Burrs-touching-to-get-a-fine-enough-grind) If you've been following - I've discovered that my Mignon II's burrs don't seem to be parallel. I'm getting a chirp when zeroing them out, but it seems to be 'catching' the top burr more on one side than the other, when I turn the bottom burr by hand. I've tried shimming the other side to this high spot, but to no avail so far. So, I'm putting it out there to anyone who might know more than me! What am I doing so wrong?
  15. Hi all, Just got myself a Eureka Mignon Silenzio yesterday (lovely piece of machinery), went through the included manual but I couldn't get any specifics on how often I should clean the inside of the grinder. How often do you guys do a shallow cleaning (vacuuming without top plate removal) and a deep cleaning (vacuuming with top plate removal to get to the insides)? Oh yes, are there any other maintenance exercises that I should perform on a consistent basis? Thanks.
  16. This is a three year old ECM Barista, single boiler with E61 head machine which I bought new from Bella Barista. It had a new control unit replaced under warranty last year, and has been kept in immaculate condition. It's lived in this unit since new, so there's no scratches on the sides. It's a brilliant machine that makes the most deliciously creamy, fragrant espressos! The boiler is big enough and powerful enough to keep up with cup after cup of coffee, the steam wand is brilliant and produces that perfect micro-foam we all love! I'm selling it with the Eureka Mignon which you can see
  17. Hi all, here is my new set up; it's a 969.coffee Elba 2, Eureka Mignon grinder, Joe Frex knock out drawer, tamp station and glass tamper. Makes a mean brew that's for sure
  18. Hi, My current set up is a gaggia classic and iberital mc2. I've had them for about 5 years now and am looking to slowly upgrade to a better set up (possibly a rocket mozzafiato evoluzione r as the espresso machine). I appreciate I wouldn't get the most out of a high end machine with the MC2, so was looking to upgrade the grinder first. I'll probably get a bit more out of the gaggia classic whilst I save up for the coffee machine in the mean time. As the title suggests I have a budget of £300-400 pounds though this is flexible for the perfect machine. I was thinking of either a new
  19. For Sale 1 x Sage Duo Temp Pro (silver) - with original portafilter + customised bottomless portafilter Purchased from John Lewis on 2/6/2016 Meticulously maintained and descaled monthly . Used approximately once daily since purchase. £175 (plus postage if required)
  20. Hello, I just want to land on a choice for an espresso mainly, but also I would love to get some bold flavor of french press or pour over cups. I guess the best choices for the budget I got now for a grinder is $400-500, are: mahlkonig vario, sette 270, preciso, eureka mignon, rancillio rocky. One told me the flat burrs enhance the nutty, chocolate flavors and conical burrs enhance the fruity and citrus flavors. I think I lean towards the fruity flavors, because I ground this morning a shot with my javapress manual grinder fairly fine shot on my OSCAR II and the taste
  21. I'm splitting off from RooniusMaximus' thread to avoid hijacking it (as that's rather rude) and as the questions I'm asking are not entirely pertinent to his situation, even if not totally dissimilar. Hitherto in my espresso making, I've been using a Delonghi Dedica with unpressurized baskets and a Baratza Encore as grinder which struggles to find an appropriate grind that isn't either so fine as to choke the machine or so coarse as to have the water slosh through it at pace. As such, I am looking to change to something else. In a similar situation to the aforementioned RooniusMaximu
  22. Found someone who will take this all off my hands. Lives local too so no postage hassle. Assume all in first class condition. From BB but now just out of warranty. Very little usage, all pristine condition and well maintained. Plus original boxes and instructions. Rancilio Silvia new euro version. (£280) Eureka Mignon my. 2 with new unused burr set, Chrome, (£180) Rancilio two drawer base. (£50.00) So £490 for the lot. Reasonable?
  23. Hi everyone, Long time lurker. Apologies for the samey "please help me choose" thread but I am lost in a sea of burrs. I currently have both a Hario Mini Mill & Iberital MC2. I use the MC2 for espresso, the mini mill for everything else. I'm looking to upgrade and my budget is sub £200, ideally more like £100-150. I've done a fair bit of research into manual grinder as I was under the impression you get the best bang for your buck here. I'm still rather lost, so any advice at all would be appreciated. My thoughts/questions so far: Second hand is the obvious way to go
  24. For sale due to finding myself short of time for espresso nowadays and moving more towards filter methods. Bought on this forum last October when it was only a month old. Therefore it still has almost 2 years transferable warranty left with Bella Barista. It also has the original packaging and paperwork and the original hopper and pf rest. By my (rough) calculations taking into account limited use the last few months I'd say its had 800g go through it a month but even rounding up to 1kg a month its only 12kg in the year I've had it. I never used the pf rest and hopper as I made a di
  25. This is my simple and budget (under 700 GBP) setup: Sage Bambino Plus + Model: SP0001515 54mm portafilter + single wall baskets Eureka Mignon MCI Chinese scale Finally able to pull good shots out of Bambino Plus
