Hi all, I've been lucky enough to get my hands on a new Londinium R in the last week to pair with my Mythos I bought second hand a few months ago. I did have an Elektra Semiautomatica and decided the time was right to upgrade. Due to the machine upgrade, my old 'Coffee Corner' was tight for space so I had to get myself a cart from IKEA and did a bit of an 'Ikea hack', a term I recently became aware of. I'm not known to be very creative, I usually steal other people's good ideas so link below to where I got the inspiration for the IKEA trolley. http://www.oliverandrust.com/2014/02/ikea-hacking-in-kitchen-for-more.html?m=1 Anyway, I've been slowly getting to grips with the Londinium, it's definitely very different to my old machine. But have been getting some good results so far. Anyway enough of my ramblings. Picture below.
Long story short, bought a sofa bed from Ikea less than 12 months ago, used it three times maybe and realised when unfolded both parts of the split mattress are slopped so that you roll down into the middle of the bed when sleeping. With two people sleeping on the bed you just end up on top of each other (not in a good way ) in the middle all the time, the odd bit is that your body senses that you want to roll back and you constantly fall a sleep with tense muscles, effectively ending up not sleeping much. I've filed a claim with Ikea, they sent out a subcontracted bloke who confirmed what we said and today we got a letter from Ikea stating that there's nothing wrong with the product and no further action shall be taken by them. Two facts which might help: 1) the item was bought and ordered online, delivered by Ikea and put together by myself (nothing wrong there as confirmed by the technician who paid us a visit) 2) Ikea states that you can return an item within 365 days if you're not happy with it: NO-NONSENSE RETURNS POLICY It’s OK to change your mind. If you’re not totally satisfied with your IKEA purchase you can return any item within 365 days, together with proof of purchase, for a full refund. Fairly sure the small print says it should be in a resealable condition and if it's not they can offer store credit, although this depends (and this is the wiggle room of course) Curious where we stand with this now, can I get Trading Standards involved as the item really isn't fit for purpose, or are we stuffed? Cheers, T.
Quite new to the whole experiance and heres my story ... Always loved coffee but usually only time i got a nice one was in a shop or restaurant until wife bought me for xmas krups dolce gusto (dont laugh) anyway all was fine with it but i felt there was more so I sold that on ebay and just today bought myself baby classic managed to get the nice lady down to £255 and chuck in some easy pods and a tin of aribica plus a training cd, being it was the display model not a bad deal i thought and peace of mind that if anything goes wrong i can take it to the store rather than having to send it away etc. So I buy myself some expresso from ikea to practice with (reasonably priced) and all the other bits needed like milk jug etc. Plan was to watch the cd then have a go but i couldnt resist ran lots of water through then had a go in a shot glass lone behold crema first time !! beginers luck got to be so i try again, same. easy peasy this I think lets do a latte so i pack up 2 shots in the double basket and away i go froth up my milk etc and im sat here typing this with arguably the best cuppa I ever had, now no doubt I have much to learn and if you guys seen it probably its poor effort but im happy with it and the way I see it a cheap coffee from ikea gives results like this then the only way is up, look forward to learning from the experts here great forum and wealth of info. ttfn Steve
