  1. I expect spares to be hard to come by. But if you happen to have a lid or can make one, please let me know. Thanks Dave.
  2. Hi folks, new Mignon means this is surplus to requirements. Great condition but the thin rubber band that sits in the middle of the grinder snapped ages ago! Pics on request. Cheers.
  3. Reluctantly moving on my Feldgrind, having owned it for a year and a half (my arms have finally had enough). It's in great condition - generally used for one coffee a day, though I have been away for half of the year so it's been sitting in the cupboard. Complete with its original packaging, I would like £100 including postage. Currently having trouble getting pictures on here but I will try again tomorrow morning. Thanks for looking!
  4. I’m set on the idea of handgrinding for espresso as I think the good quality electric grinders tend to be too expensive and over-engineered for my own needs; i.e. just one or two espressos per day. I do want an excellent coffee, but don’t need to make 80 cups per day or enter any barista championships! I have a Feldgrind and I think that does a very good job. Early days with using it for espresso, but I’m liking it a lot so far. But I wonder if I could improve things even further; maybe with a larger burr-set? Or at least get an interesting variation in flavour in the cup if I run two handgrinders? So I was looking at my options for alternatives, under £300. I like the look of the OE Pharos, but I’m also intrigued by the Kinu M47. The Kinu has smaller burrs than the Pharos, but they claim tighter tolerances and better alignment. Does anyone have any idea what difference that might may be in the cup, compared to the Feldgrind? Or have any recommendations? So does anyone have any experience with the Feldgrind, Kinu M47 and or Pharos who could give me some idea of the likely differences I might taste? Thanks!

    Wanted: Feldgrind

    On the basis these seem to be sold out most places at present - thought I'd see if anyone has one they're looking to move on? Going to be restricted space wise for a few months, so machine purchase has been put on hold, but going to get a brew set-up, and a hand-grinder would beat asking for pre-ground.
  6. I'm looking for something to experiment with over the next few months, trying V60, aeropress, espresso etc. Originally I was looking at an MC2 and also thinking of the Mignon but the price would be a big stretch. The other option I'm considering is the Feldgrind, seems to be much better at swapping between the various brew methods than the stepless electric ones but how does it stack it up against those for expresso usage? Is the hand grind effort going to be a put-off for 4-6 espressos a day?
  7. I think the burrs on my Ceado E7 may need replacing but before I do I wanted to try using my feldgrind to see if there's a noticeable difference. I've only used the feldgrind for brewed so far but can anyone recommend the rough grind setting for espresso? I'd rather not waste beans being miles off
  8. I have now set up a nice little coffee corner in my office at work. Comprising - Gaggia Classic, nicely modded by truegrace MBK Feldgrind MBK 58mm tamper other bits 'n' bobs I have just received a parcel of beans from Coffee Compass, inc some Monsoon Malabar and their CO2 Decaf. The MM was ready to go so I have given it a try. Feldgrind is on approx 1.2 turns from zero. Looks like a decent grind. 14g dose in double basket. Tried using the bottomless pf and it spritzed so much that I have to switch it off! Ended up switching to the double pf just to keep it in check. Still has signs of some serious channelling when I look at the puck which comes out quite wet. All very frustrating as I have hit a really good routine with my Sage and Macap at home. Feels like I am starting from scratch again. Any advice? Might try a bit of WDT as a the moment I am inverting the Feldgrind container into the pf and then tapping to settle before tamping.
  9. I am looking at purchasing a manual coffee grinder to go with my Rok espresso maker and was wondering if anyone has any recommendations? I have had a brief look around at the Feldgrind, Lido 2 and Rok grinder but can't seem to decide between them. Has anyone compared these or are they all pretty much the same quality and ease of use wise? Thanks, Garth
  10. I know everyone will laugh but I might as well ask... Feldgrind wanted as an upgrade to my Hario grinders. Would be very grateful and would also make a contribution/donation to the site (actually I will do that come payday anyway assuming the cat does not brake another leg...) Many thanks in advance if someone can help Goes off to configure Instagram to push notifications to work phone in a vain attempt to get one from the Knock shop.
  11. Hi All.Newbie here, so please be easy on me. After drinking mainly instant then Netspresso for many years, Ive decided to go for an espresso setup. I mainly drink tall (not too) milky coffee but used heated miIk rather than frothed. (I'm a bit non plussed about the foam)., and then topped up with hot water. I was introduced to the Aeropress by a work colleague in the office (Trying to get a private electrical appliance PAT tested in a big office is impossible), so got one myself. To partner this after much research brought a Knock Feldgrind. (I've since added the aero grind). I now use this set up fro camping, caravanning and when I'm staying in hotels. At home I use the netspresso machine and L'or capsules, normally two capsules for each cup I have.
  12. Hello, As I’m looking at buying an espresso machine for Home in the next couple of months I wondered what opinions were prevalent re grinders currently available. I currently own two MBK handgrinders... a Feldgrind for home (used for V60 and Aeropress) and an Aergrind for work (used for Aeropress). Should I just use my Feldgrind at home and put all my money into an espresso machine or should I buy something like a Eureka Mignon or try and hobble on with the feldgrind until I can source a second hand Mazzer Mini? Any opinions on this are appreciated.
  13. Hi, The hopper on my feldgrind is slipping off (up the way), has anyone else had this issue? I can't see anything I can tighten to keep it on:
  14. Hey people, I'm away for a few days so the Aeropress is getting an outing! I've seen this recipe on the Feldgrind thread: Feldgrind set to 1:6 and 45 second pour/steep/press (for a total time of 2.15) but just wondering if anyone has any other recipes/tips? Cheers!
  15. 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.
  16. Mark I Feldgrind in aluminium - very good condition - light occasional use. Includes the handy plastic clip for stowing the handle when not in use. Nowhere currently seems to have Feldgrinds in stock so here's a chance to get one without the pain of having to wait an eternity for delivery:) Price includes delivery. Please, no offers - will happily keep it if it doesn't sell.
  17. Hi, I have finally managed to finish my home setup for making coffee, aiming for quality and small footprint. The tray is 44 x 36 cm. How many different ways of making coffee can you identify?
  18. I have been trying to find a quick and easy method for brewing a fairly large amount (~880ml) of coffee, with as little cleanup as possible. I would like to introduce more people at work to specialty coffee, but it has proved difficult to find a method that works. Since I generally use v60/AP I thought the V60-03 size would allow me to do this, without the need to buy a Chemex/drip machine. However, the brews I am getting are consistently as a much lower extraction and I'm not sure what to do to correct this. I am aiming for 1.50 TDS 21% EY as that is generally what I aim for with brewed coffee. Method with V60-01 12.5g @1.10 medium grind on Feldgrind 190ml filtered, soft water at 97c 30s bloom with 24ml water Filled up to 100ml and topped up twice; all water in at 1:30 Drained at 2:05 TDS 1.47 EY 20.34% (not far off!) Tastes good Method with V60-03 66g @1.10 medium grind on Feldgrind 1000ml filtered, soft water at 97c 30s bloom with 130ml water Quickly filled up to just below top of filter Constant spiral pour, maintaining brew level All water in at 2:00 Drained at 3:20 TDS 1.32 EY: 18.48% Tastes thin and dull I was expecting to have to grind coarser with the larger brew volume and time, but this is making me think I need to grind finer? Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? Incidentally, the other potential methods I have tried are: 1000ml french press (Espro) - good results, but too much cleanup between brews Pouring 1000ml french press into v60 for better clarity - filters just drain at 500ml Brewing a double strength french press and adding the same about of hot water as the yield volume - didn't work out very economical since a lot of double strength brew is wasted at the bottom of the Espro, or absorbed by the grounds Pouring 1000ml slurry straight into a v60-03 after 4min brew - works pretty well but fills up at around 500ml due to the volume of grounds, so would require two v60s and carafes.
  19. What Feldgrind setting do you find works best for the Moka pot please?
  20. Hi all Is there anyone who lives in or around leeds who would pickup a feldgrind for me. Here's hoping. Paul.
  21. My car needs its timing belt replacing so something has to go, unfortunately I have chosen my Feldgrind. Great condition, grinds just like new, a few slight wear marks on the handle knob. £85 Delivered
  22. Hey guys, i have been using weak grinder, worse than hario minimill with a sieve and after sieving out the fines i was getting ok cup of coffe using aeropress and v60, i now own feldgrind for more than a 3 months and im just not satisfied with its results , grind consistency is better for sure, in more coarse settings(for maybe french press) its way way better but still if i want to prepare one small cup of v60 using 15-20 g coffee, to hit 2.5 minute extraction it requires finer grind settings which gives me still a very noticable amount of fines, if i don't sieve out the fines i'm getting noticable worse cup of coffee and even my girlfriend doesn't like the results, without separating the fines (from 15-25% of ground weight) its very easy to taste burnt bitter overextracted part of final cup that ruins it, were my expectations too high for this grinder ? how are you satisfied with its grind quality with finer grind settings ? im suprised by this because i noticed that people use this even for an espresso.
  23. Hi, We have a Vario (steel burrs) which we use for brewed coffee (V60, Chemex and syphon). However, I've been wondering whether we might get better results with a decent hand grinder? I have looked at the Lido 2, and the Made by Knock Feldgrind and Hausgrind (although reports of their customer service and not knowing when more stock will be available put me off a bit). I'd be grateful for any thoughts! Nick.
  24. After a good few years of drinking Instant / Netspresso coffee, I've decided to go the proper coffee route. I have a Knock Feldgrind sitting in the garage, is this good enough for Espresso Grind
  25. Recently got hold of a Feldgrind (Feld2) and have a couple of questions I'm hoping someone can help me with: Is there a particular brush that people are using to clean these with? I'm thinking I'm going to need a long, slim, stiff brush to access those burrs. I can't seem to access the instructions at https://coffeeforums.co.uk/showthread.php?30212-Made-By-Knock-Feldgrind-Manual-Tips-amp-Tricks-Modifications/page23 - I get the following error message: "pottolom, you do not have permission to access this page.
