Hi, Selling my Kinu 47 as I have a Niche on the way and though I really do like the Kinu, this'll be my third time deciding that hand grinding in the morning isn't for me 🙃 £245 posted (at buyer's risk). £240 collected from Edinburgh. Some marks to the stainless steel outside commensurate with use. Hard to photograph as the appearance of the brushed steel changes with lighting. This is not a new item, but in very good condition. Is also listed on eBay for a higher price. Edit: payment via the usuals e.g. cash, PayPal gift or bank transfer please
The magnetically attached cup on my Kinu M47 would sometimes fall off in the middle of a grind when grinding light beans. It didn't always happen but it did happen enough that I was getting paranoid every time the cup would chatter during a grind. I think I even made it fall out once just from me panicking - the motion of me jerking it over to the top of the counter was enough to jarr the cup loose and send it tumbling across the kitchen. After a few exchanges with Kinu support (which included some photos of my current cup for them to examine), they decided to send me a new catch cup, straight from the Germany warehouse. Two business days later... it's here! The new cup has smaller magnets but there are twice as many and they hold VERY well, tho admittedly, a couple of the magnets looked like they'd slipped on my original cup, so it was a problem cup to begin with, but this new one feels properly secure. It looks like there are some changes to the inside, too... there's still a tapered lip near the top, but it's a more gentle taper and will probably be less inclined to trap grounds. The inside edge where the bottom of the cup meets the side walls is no longer a sharp corner but is now rounded; it should also collect less grounds. I'm quite pleased with the level of service I've received from Kinu. They did apparently miss a couple of my emails, but they got back to me almost immediately when I contacted them via Facebook.
Not so much to show off at the moment being a humble French-presser at the moment, but I'm really happy with the new setup as you can see below... You can just about see the Kinu M47 grinder there at the back. It's the most awesome piece of coffee kit ever, and my first grinder. I'll post more about it in the grinder section later. Not shown here is the Espro-P7 French press - which is most awesome. I've already taken my first steps at comparing: pre-ground VS freshly-ground, and supermarket-roasted VS freshly-roasted. In the process I've learnt about the variables I can adjust to get the brew right (the kit in the new setup allows consistency and accuracy to greater degree). Brew temperature, grind size (ish), coffee dose and ratio to water, brewing time. I find that freshly-roasted and ground beans are easier to 'learn' and much more forgiving because the flavours are like a massive party in the mouth. However, the supermarket-roasted (probably last year) beans are like being at the funeral of a very distant relative. And so on...
