  1. Mine just arrived today, when assembling the water filter doesn’t seem to fit properly in the tank. When you push it down onto the connection, it seems to come into contact with the side of the tank before it’s all the way down. It then isn’t able to sit upright in the tank. Is that expected and just a poor design? It’s just the filter that came provided in the box.
  2. Hi I am due up for another water filter change and wondering if anyone has sourced these from anywhere other than Sage? Mine is the newer one which uses the Clara filters.
  3. Good evening Folks, Looking to a purchase a water filter jug for my espresso machine was thinking a Zerowater pitcher (as it comes with TDS meter) can anyone offer any suggestions or advice? Thanks, Mike
  4. I've been experimenting recently with different Aeropress filter combinations and wondered what others used. I didn't realise until recently there was such a big difference between paper and metal filters and currently I prefer the metal filter for a cleaner taste (albeit less clean cup!) Do you have a particular combination, multiple filters, filter sandwich?
  5. Hi, As I am on my quest to upgrade my grinder situation I have inevitably come across the Mignon in the electric grinder department. From what I can see it seems like a great entry level grinder for espresso that will not leave me wanting to upgrade within 6months. I think I could cope with the clumping problems as I would likely dose and then grind into small vessel and transfer to the PF anyway. My main question for people who have used the grinder is, how good is this grinder/how easy is it too switch from espresso to brewing say aeropress or v60? I know it is a stepless grinder s
  6. Hi, For anyone interested, I'm selling a new 54mm Sage Bottomless Portafilter, ordered from Sage and hand machined for £46.50. These have a unique group fitting, only for use on Sage and Breville 54mm coffee machines like the Duo Temp Pro. I believe it's also compatible with these machines... BES810, BES840, BES860 and BES870. Please check compatibility with your machine though. A friend of mine with a Sage Duo Temp Pro expressed a lot of interest in having a bottomless portafilter like the one I was using on my Rocket. Without thinking I sung the praises of bottomless portafil
  7. V60 was what got me hooked on "quality" coffee after a visit to a speciality coffee shop with a friend who took charge of the ordering. He ordered us both a Filter (V60), to my amazement I suggested it must have had some form of Strawberry syrup in it as it tasted of Strawberry and apatently was just a black coffee! so I went out, purchased a grinder and coffee and the journey began. Now some years on I've been more of a Espresso and Flate White drinker however brushed off the cheap grinder and made a Yirgacheffe V60. I used the following recipe - 32.5g Course Grind (Krup
  8. Good afternoon guy's. So I upgraded from a dedica to a Sage Duo Temp. I've just run a descaler through it but screwed up and forgot to remove the filter :/ so I'm in desperate need of one of those odd filters and annoyingly sage are out of stock! Any help pointing me in the right direction to buy a filter or is there a workaround at all? Thanks in advance, Gindy.
  9. Hi Clear clever coffee dripper, 300ml. Bought in September from Hasbean but upgrading to the larger one. Used a handful of times, unfortunately no box, but do have the order receipt if required. Comes with some small filters. £13 + postage Thanks Nik
  10. Hi All, Just looking for advice, I'm wanting to get a filter coffee machine (to compliment my aeropress). Just wondering if anyone has used the Merlitta Look (glass or flask without the hot plate)? Or whether I should spend the extra and on a Moccamaster or a Wilfa Svart Classic any advice greatly appreciated, Thanks!
  11. Ok, so I recently joined the forums looking to improve my coffee. I predominantly drink filter coffee using a Melitta Therm Look IV using pre-ground coffee (I know, I know, I'm a beginner, what can I say!). Realising my best option to improve the flavour without splashing out on a new Brazen Plus, would be moving over to beans and grinding them myself, so, thanks to recommendations from here, I have purchased a Wilfa Svart grinder which should be with me on Monday/Tuesday. I like the idea of a V60 or Chemex but realistically would prefer to keep the brewing process as simple as possible hence
  12. Simple question (not!!) i want ant to take advantage of my 'plumb to mains' feature but what filter should I go with?
  13. Quick question for those who have - my wife ordered one with the steel filter as a Christmas present for her mother. What she received was a sealed Aeropress box, containing 350 filters but there's no mention of the steel filter anywhere, and she doesn't want to open the box to check. Anyone here ordered one with the steel filter, and if so, was it in the box or supplied separately? Thanks

    I've just watched an EK43 prep video, using a portafilter funnel, and see the same issue a I have - a nicely stirred up distributed grind, and when you pull out the funnel, an empty dead band about 1.5mm wide all around the top of the puck, where the funnel sits, which sort of defeats the even distribution, and further fiddling afterwards can lead to grind spillage, which was the reason for using the funnel in the first place. i'm thinking of modding the funnel, so most of it only sits a mm or so inside the portafilter, with maybe three thin legs that go in further to locate it. anyone
  15. I've not long moved house and have a smaller kitchen, which has just been re-fitted. As a result I have been banned from using my machine in there (La Pavoni PCL and MC2 grinder). Partly 'cause of space but mainly because of the mess sometimes made. Now this could be my own doing by not mopping up the odd stray grinds or coffee splatters up but this is where I'm at. I thought about B2C machines but not read anything good about them, what they really like? So I'm looking at other methods. Making do with Aeropress at the mo. Thinking maybe going back to filter (Brazen/Bonnavita) or maybe pour ov
  16. So, a while back I got some great advice from here and invested in a Cherub. I recently got the chance to plumb it in, so have done so. Anyone else done this? My pour is quite fast but I am currently running filterless. I am going to fix that next week, any advice on inline filters? Britta-C seems to be the thing. Do you think the filter will slow the water down or is this all due to the pump? I think the grind is dialled in correctly. Any finer and my pucks break up. And the coffee is good, so. One annoying thing about the plumbing is that it comes out of the bottom of the unit and the
  17. Hi all.... now my mind is reeling with possibilities.... what exactly is a French Press ? Please help. Take care... Frederick (Fred)
  18. Last week my pump started rattling and smelled burnt after several shots from it in a row. Then it stopped pumping water altogether! I left it for the day and switched it back on, the electrical burning smell still there but now pumping water. For the last few days i've switched it on, pumped some water through and pulled a shot and now the smell is going and espresso tasting ok but i just don't think the pressure is like before-put any tamp weight on it and the coffee just drips out Rang Gaggia at Halifax on friday who were too busy to talk to me so took my number but never called me ba
  19. The first coffee filter was invented in 1908 by Melitta Bentz, a housewife from Dresden, Germany. She created the filter using blotting paper. The Melitta Bentz and her husband Hugo Bentz started the Melitta Bentz company that same year in 1908. The Melitta brand is synonymous with coffee filters to this day.
  20. Hi all I have had my aeropress for a couple of weeks now and I have been getting on great with it, so far I haven't had a bad cup from it. Today I didn't have a bad cup but a cloudy cup, I noticed it yesterday (Sunday) when I came back that my coffee was not very clear I just assumed the paper filter was not fitted properly but today I tried again, same grind as sunday and (I believe) as the week before, I double/triple checked the filter was fitted properly but again my cup was quite cloudy. There was a slight amount/hardly anything of thin sediment in the bottom of the cup and the
  21. Does anyone have any experience of using a cartridge based water filter system such as this http://www.osmiowater.co.uk/water-filters/ft-line-ve-water-filter-system.html instead of a blue tank CTU in a commercial environment? Also does anyone know the comparative ecological impact of the two (i.e. if blue tank CTU is recharged and re-used does this mean it's more environmentally sound than the cartridges, which I believe you simply swap out and discard).
  22. I recently bought a Gaggia CLassis (older one not the new one) and it came with the pressurised filters. Looking to replace so I can get a better pour but wondered what people recommended? I really like the naked style / bottomless ones...
  23. Hi, After much deliberation I have just installed the BWT Bestmax Premium water filter kit onto my water supply. I did a drop test of my water before and after, as well as a bottle of Volvic. These were the results (TH=Total Hardness, KH=Carbonate Hardness): Water supply: TH 12 drops = 214ppm, KH 7 drops = 125ppm Water supply with filter: TH 7 drops = 125ppm, KH 5 drops = 89ppm Volvic: TH 4 drops = 71ppm, KH 3 drops = 53ppm I can play around with the bypass setting (which determines how hard it filters the water), but I couldn't resist making a brew straight a

    Chemex 6-cup

    This piece of pure beauty is up for grabs. It has sat in the back of my cupboard for too long now, and deserves to be appreciated a bit more. 6 cup wood collared Chemex, complete with almost a whole box of filter papers. Only used a handful of times - personally I'm not a huge fan of chemex style coffee, so never feel to reach for it. I hope she can go to a good home! £35 delivered. Any advice on how to get a photo up is welcomed....can't seem to upload?
  25. Hi all. Just got my Oracle Touch but on the first try, I ended up with a question! The coffee turned out ok (a long black standard preset with a double filter installed) but does the Oracle know what size filter is installed? In some of the ther modes you seem to be able to select single or double, but not with a long black? Does it know to dose the correct amount of coffee? Also, I assume a long black is basically an Americano? Sorry if it's an obvious question!
