  1. Finally getting around to it - here is my new (well comparably) setup of my L1 and you can just see my mythos on the side. A perfect match I would have to say and, following the mythos mod to stop clumping, able to consistently produce excellent shots - limited only by my ability. I have also recently upgraded to a VST 18g ridgeless basket and have not looked back since (possibly a slight improvement in the cup - a significant improvement in the buildup of coffee grounds around the screen).
  2. Hi, My sette 270w looks like it has given up the ghost. I am more inclined to get a refund rather than a repair and risk it breaking out of warranty. So I am in the market for a new / used grinder and would appreciate recommendations. Bit of background... I have a fracino cherub. I usually make 2-3 espressos a day. Exclusively light roasts. Previously had a super jolly, and would want this to be a step up from the sj / sette. Am open to the idea of a used grinder too. So far I have been looking at the atom / eureka 65e. Should I be considering a second hand mythos? Or
  3. Looks like there are going to be a few interesting new products at Host this year (October 21) so thought I'd start a thread to discuss anything of interest. From what I have seen there's going to be the Mythos 2, La Marzocco Leva (below) and San Remo 'revolutionary' grinder.
  4. After having to replace my car I'm looking to replenish the coffers, so my M1CP is for sale. Purchased brand spanking new 15th March 2018 (VA manufactured date Jan 2018). Has original box, invoice and packaging. £1,500 (also listed elsewhere). Collection from Sheffield, but I will enquire about shipping if required.
  5. Recently bought what appears to be a cracking Mythos with just over 20k on the clock. It was delivered by a chap called Dave and was in very clean condition. It came complete with tamper mech which is handy for potential resale in the future and a chopped hopper. Sadly not quite low profile enough for my kitchen units but a solution is being worked on as we speak so watch this space! Decided to take the tamper mech off and while I was there give anything that needed it a clean (which wasn’t much at all, purely cosmetic). Just started using it today and so far so good, very pleased with i
  6. Hello, I'd welcome some thoughts on this, please. Basically, talk sense! I've got an old Mythos sitting waiting for some attention. It's been bashed about a little; the lugs that hold the plastic front on are snapped. (Fairly straightforward to work around.) But it works okay. I've half a mind to make it look nice, chop the hopper down, and use it as my second grinder. (Or maybe first!) to complement the Royal. Is this nuts? Is it likely to be any good?
  7. Which would you choose between the Mythos Basic and Ceado E37s and why? I can’t easily try either of them before I purchase one, so I need some help.
  8. Sad to say this was not my hopper but done for a fellow forum member, and I like a challenge, you can buy short hoppers for a mythos but for £140 and to my mind cutting down a full size one and adding a wooden lid adds a touch of class. To cut down the hopper, first put a 1" wide piece of masking tape all the way around then cut around the line with dremill grinder disks - takes about 1 1/2 hours -loads of fun, then level the cut surface - you could sand it flat by hand I used a 14" sanding disk on my lathe - coz why not then select a piece of 20mm thick quality Elm from the internet

    I have started a new thread over here as I'm ordering my Londinium R but am trying to get some guidance on my new grinder. I set my budget between £1000 - £1500 and have been researching a few. It would seem the mythos is within my grasp but I am unsure if it really suits the home user environment, I know this is all subjective, after all my wife thinks my mazzer is ugly as hell. So given the choice and trying to pair to my Londinium R what's the short list you would suggest based on what you actually have at home or have used? My experience is currently my expobar and mazzer jolly.
  10. I'm about to pull the trigger on a brand new NS Mythos Clima Pro that I've managed to source from a friend for £1,350 (exclusive for me). I know this is a good price and this is my end game grinder, but it is of course a huge purchase for me so need some encouragement to be tipped over the line! Also any views on how these depreciate/hold value? (based on low home usage). There don't seem to be many second hand ones available nowadays
  11. Kent, will courier, £550 or offers. Calls it a coffee crusher https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/coffee-crusher/112677757380?hash=item1a3c1e21c4:g:y0oAAOSwYc5aKTBK

    I live in Hanoi. My 11th year here. For the last 5 years, we've been promised McDonald's here. But finally! These years have been a blessing in disguise though.. Less junk food in my diet. But with Domino's, KFC and BK popping up all over the place, it's a matter of time before the diminutive Vietnamese become not so diminutive. Oh well.. With fast food, bad air quality and packs of cigarettes costing 75p, I'm not sure how long I can live (here)... Back to the topic.. So after stuffing my face with a big mac, I spot a McCafe in the corner. There, to my surprise, I find a proper mach
  13. I bought the grinder new in November 2014 and it has had home use for an average of 2-3 espressos per day since then. The machine is in Edinburgh and you're welcome to come and have a look. I have the original box and am happy to drive up to 100 miles to meet/deliver to buyer. It has been regularly maintained and well looked after. Looking for £1100.00 thanks Al [ATTACH=CONFIG]30555[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]30554[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]30553[/ATTACH]
  14. Mythos plus went for £206 on Ebay tonight bargain for someone
  15. 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/
  16. Still quite not as educated a many on here, so looking for some guidance on a new grinder for my shop. At present I rent a Robur, but business is going well and want to purchase something now that we're confident we can last. The Robur isn't bad and would happily buy one, but for some reason I'm drawn to the a Mythos one? I use a dark roast blend with 22g in, 18g out - What would people recommend to look at? I'm trying understand what different grinders/burrs do to the taste of beans, so if anyone can explain the basics, or point me to something to read then that would be amazing.
  17. Two years with the Royal and upgraditis has struck again! What are my options in the land of reasonableness, i.e. no Titus/Monolith/EG-1, etc? Is the Mythos an upgrade taste-wise or more of a horizontal move and improvement in terms of ease of use? The EK will be a bit of a stretch even at 2nd hand prices but will suit my taste for light fruity beans quite nicely. My dad, who caught the coffee bug from me, has pre-ordered the Monolith Conical so now I feel I'm lagging behind! I'll probably wait for that magnificent piece of coffee machinery to arrive to see if I can taste a noticeably di
  18. Wrote a wee review of the grinders we've used so far here, maybe more for shop folk than domestic though: https://allstartedhere.wordpress.com/2018/09/10/grinders/ Any feedback/comments appreciated!
  19. This looks a bargain but I'm currently in France so can't go for it. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Victoria-Arduino-Mythos-Plus-Professional-Coffee-Grinder/163243415346?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

  21. Hi I need your advice/prof perspective, please! Just read this post: https://coffeeforums.co.uk/showthread.php?32314&p=430908#post430908 and I am wondering if this is true that the grind speed/RPM destroy or affects taste? Trying to replicate the taste of a cafe and they use a Mythos One Grinder with 900rpm and some folks mentioned that the Ceado E37S is much better with 1400/1500 RPM is much better but I worry that the taste differs much? The grinder would be used for at home for 1-3 coffees/shots per day to replace a compak k3 Thanks in advance!
  22. Standard daily routine of making my double double foamy coffee for the start of the day at work came to a grinding halt today.... Went to fill portafilter, switched to a half second to purge some of the coffee that has sat overnight.... That worked Tried to switch back to 5 seconds that currently gives me 18g and ..... Nothing No change won't grind or do anything Switch off and on again no change switched off and went to work feeling grumpy. Came home tonight and started googling with few results of any use Switched on grinder and...... Now working normally a
  23. Hey guys, I've been stalking used grinders on ebay for a few days and just closed on a Simonelli MDX on demand for £125 delivered! Excited to finally ditch my PeDe and save all my strength for working the lever on my Cremina! Now that I'm not competing with any of you, I thought I'd share some interesting grinders I will no longer pursue. Note, i know nothing about their condition or the sellers, so caveat emptor! They are definitely interesting though. Used Mythos - starting at £250 (Auction) https://www.ebay.com/itm/Victoria-Arduino-Mythos-Coffee-Gri
  24. Hello all, I'm currently going through the process of choosing my next grinder. One of my top selection criteria is On Demand grinding and very low retention as I hate purging and throwing away good coffee. The new Mahlkonig Peak looks very interesting but is not currently readily available, has maybe not 'matured' it's design yet and is a bit on the expensive side. Top of my short list is currently the Nuova Simonelli Mythos One Clima Pro - £1629 from coffeeitalia. I would be grateful for any advice on this choice - it's a lot of money to part with so I want to get it r
  25. Hello, Joining coffeeforums could be the financial ruin of me as I feel a case of upgradeitis flaring up. I currently have a Gaggia MD85 grinder, it's old, in good condition and works very well, I understand that the burrs are the same as those in the Mazzer Major. The downside is that it retains a fair amount of coffee in the chute and because I only grind three x 17g a day it feels like a waste of good beans. I'm wondering whether to stick with the MD85, put up with the retention issue or change it for a Mythos which is modern, has a great reputation and doesn't retain any
