  1. Anyone who read my introduction post the other day will have seen that I just recently entered the world of home espresso making by purchasing a Delonghi Scultura ECZ 351. I quickly realised I'd made a bit of a mistake and should have gone with a Gaggia Classic, but by that stage it was too late to return to the shop. So, I persevered and got a bottomless portafilter and modded the steam wand a little. I'm now pulling what, to me, seem like pretty good shots. But then I am an absolute novice. However, I can't help feeling some buyer's remorse, and despite my better judgement I'm already thinking of offloading the Delonghi and getting a Classic or a Rancilio Silvia. My question is - is there really that big of a difference? I mean, at the end of the day, it's just hot water being forced through the coffee at pressure isn't it? I'm having to temperature surf with the Delonghi, but my understanding is I'd have to do the same with a Gaggia Classic. Would I be pulling noticeably better shots with the Gaggia/Rancilio? Perhaps I should just enjoy the Delonghi and stop overthinking it? I realise this is all highly subjective, but I don't know anyone locally with one of these machines, so internet-based advice is all I have to go on...... I do have a decent grinder (Feld2).
  2. What a conundrum MBK are! Do you... a) Buy an Aergrind from MBK for £90 and take your chances with delivery and warranty b) Buy an Aergrind from Machina Coffee for the new price of £120 (a £30 hike on earlier this week) and know you're getting good service and warranty c) Buy a Feld2 from MBK in the same sort of price bracket, but again take your chances I suppose I'm more leaning towards the Aergrind for ultimate portability, but it's a tricky call to make. I know prices were going to go up, but a 30% increase seems steep.
  3. For sale is my Feld2 Honed grinder which i have had for around a year, but in that time I have used it probably a total of 5 times. I bought it as a second travel grinder to go with my aeropress but quickly found that I dont travel that often, my aeropress stays at work and I tend to use my niche at home and so it doesnt get the use. I also did a house renovation in that time so it was boxed and stored. Anyhow, I got it out the other day and its a lovely tall, slender black grinder which is great as is the case with MBK stuff, but I think its time to move it on. These are £150 from knock, so offering this for £125 delivered. Its just like new and will be well packaged for postage. Its quite heavy (relatively in postage terms) so I reckon that could be as much as £10 so £125 posted seems a good deal for someone. [ATTACH=CONFIG]39926[/ATTACH]

    Hand grinder

    I think I'm going for the Feld2. However I am open to considering other hand grinders. Starting this thread given the history of MBK long delivery times is anyone thinking of offloading their hand grinder? Ian
  5. 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 right? I was going to keep the MC2 for espresso and just replace the mini mill with a better hand grinder for filter brews, is this sensible or could I replace both with a decent second hand auto for sub 200? If manual is the way to go, are these still safe to buy second hand? Seems like the MBK grinders are the best value in this area? If I go second hand auto, any recommended models? What sort of RRP do I need to be looking at for a decent auto grinder? The Minion is often mentioned here, would that represent a significant upgrade to what I have? Thanks for your time and any advice you give!
  6. New integrated dial-lid + crank arm assembly, same burrs as the original. pre-orders before 6/11/17 - £40 discount on the rrp of £140 (inc vat) for December delivery. http://www.madebyknock.com/store/p40/FELD2_%3A_HONED.html pre-orders before 13/11 it's £30 discount and before 20/11 it's £20.
  7. I've got a Feld2. Pretty happy with it. Nicely made, nice to use, easy and quick to dial in, etc. I quite enjoy grinding by hand, and I enjoy the fact it takes so little space and isn't made of plastic. From what I can gather having read comments online here and elsewhere, it easily surpasses electric grinders of the same price point and even slightly more in terms of its grind quality. Completely out of interest, how much better would the grind quality be from an electric grinder that costs several hundred pounds more than the Feldgrind?
  8. In almost as new condition, used sparingly. Comes with box, case, instructions, brush and hex driver. Still working out which, if any hand grinder I want, and on balance I think I prefer my Feld2. £125 shipped. anonymous photo sharing
  9. I just received my new Feld2, and it's a beautiful, well made grinder. I'm knew to hand grinders and have a couple of questions (since there isn't a manual included). (1) Is it okay to turn the grinder without any beans in it even when it's set to a very fine setting (near the lock setting)? There is some resistance, and it makes a bit of a grinding noise when turned near the lock setting. I just wanted to make sure that does not damage the burrs or grinder (this isn't an issue on electric grinders). (2) What's the best may to put the handle/top cover back on when inserting beans (you need to line up two separate parts in the body to get the top to seal, and it is not always the easiest to get the top back on)? Thanks for your help!
  10. Hi I'm struggling to find out much information or even a decent review on the Zassenhaus Santiago. I have just bought a 2nd hand Europiccola and want something non electric for it so I don't scare the neighbours at the crack of dawn! I kind of like the old world style of the Zassenhaus, and I hear they can cope with espresso style grinds. Likewise the Feld2. I guess the F2 is more portable, but a bit pricier (currently not much in it pricewise). I'm a little put off by all the messages complaining about service, delays, etc with the F2, but I'm hoping that's a legacy issue and it's been resolved. They seem to have a few available at the moment. My question is which is likely to require the least effort / time to get a double shot out of it? Which is easier / nicer to use? The drawer of the Zassenhaus looks very faffy, I do have a distant memory of using one and remember the drawer got stuck and jerked out and spilt my hard work! I'm assuming the quality of the grinds is on a par, but I would love to hear from anyone who can compare the two for me? The F2 seems very popular, I don't understand why the Zassenhaus grinders never get mentioned, maybe they're not fashionable or much good?!
