  1. Still clearing out my Oracle equipment. I have a 58mm Sage original machined (not cheap cutout) naked PF . Complete with spring These currently cost £69.95 from Sage & £100+ from Amazon, £43 delivered
  2. Now a couple of weeks in with my new machine and I think I'm making some progress. I plucked up the courage to try the naked portafilter this morning. On the plus side, the room doesn't resemble Spud's bed sheets. On the other hand, I don't really know what to conclude from what I'm seeing. The main thing it seems to me is it's all coming through from round the edge rather than in the middle of the basket, so I guess I'm not distributing evenly enough yet. I have also moved to a finer grind than before with a move to some new beans, so even though I'm on 2:1 in 30s, I wonder whether I've got that right - it was a bigger move of the knob than my previous adjustments. What say you experienced folk? http://www.vimeo.com/242359445
  3. FOR SALE : Gaggia Baby (Colour: Ivory) with Rancilio Steam Wand Upgrade and Naked PF £90 + Postage The machine is in good condition and has benefitted from a new brew group seal not too long ago. I also have a spare brew group seal which I will include in the price. Naked portafilter is from Happy Donkey and is provided in addition to the original Gaggia PF. I want to sell items together (£90). Please do not make offers for individual parts as this will be declined. I will put pictures up in a while once I have a chance to take some. Andy
  4. Would like to try a VST or similar basket as I think I would like to see if I can impove thinks abit. Has anyone got first hand experience with a classic ? And where is the best place to buy ?I have looked at few places and some people don't seem to have the stock of the double basket..
  5. Morning All, Looking for / hoping that someone may have a modified DTP bottomless portifilter (usually by Mr Joey), which they are looking to sell - or maybe will be, in the near future? I know there’s a couple of these portifilters on sale with actual DTP’s, however most are selling as a whole package. Thanks in advance if anyone can help. Greatly appreciated.
  6. As above, bought second hand from Ronsil for £43 delivered These are few pennies shy of £70 new. Photos here https://coffeeforums.co.uk/showthread.php?49294-Sage-Oracle-Naked-PF-£43-Delivered Looking for same price, no longer needed as new machine on the way. Note to buyer would prefer to dispatch start of next week if sale agreed.
  7. The one that came with the L1 is fine up to a point but the design having the sides return towards the center underneath is a flaw in my mind. When I saw the L2 at the forum day at Rave last year I noticed it using a different design that allows the basket to protrude. currently if I try to use the 22g basket then coffee falls onto the return then runs back along the handle. I still have a few issues with distribution (drips from all over for the first 10 secs or more before a good cone forms) but the handle itself needs replacing in my view. Thoughts on an alternate anyone?
  8. Dunno why but i have ditched my naked PF and resorted to split pours and having 2 singles rather than a double. Im using ''2ipa7'' cups with illy logos which have very rounded bottoms, emthasises the mouthfeel and i'm 'chewing the shot'. In a double the first slurp isnt as satisfying as the 2nd, unless vigourously stirred Singles - they seem to taste better ! Random post I know, but feel free to discuss
  9. So yesterday was a washout with only the cafetiere for company. I wasn't feeling great so didn't have much to drink (or eat). Came down late this morning to discover two packages waiting for me - superb, coffee and bits...... On went the Classic and I opened the first pack of pre-ground (yes I know) and the second package which contained tamper, shot glasses, jug etc. I washed everything whilst waiting for the machine to heat up - I also visited the 'tube' and refreshed my memory on exactly what to do. I duly weighed out 18g of coffee, did the biz with the paperclip (WDT is too fancy a description for my liking) and tamped like a good 'un. I checked the puck was clear of the grouphead and ran through some water into my 2oz shot glass (unmarked - I went for the double skin ones). I waited anxiously for the light to come back on before pressing the brew switch. Twenty seven seconds later I had 2oz of liquid with crema - I smelled the shot and wasn't offended by anything so I ventured a sip..... not bad but a little sour - drinkable though. Success, it was just a matter of tweaking a few bits to get a better shot. You think??? Second effort was way to sharp and the third was worse! Oh bugger - not a great start but practice eh? And who was it that wrote on here somewhere to just taste everything? I left the machine on and returned for a second go after lunch. I probably should mention that I was still not interested in food Anyway, a few half decent shots later and I was starting to feel the buzz. The last shot I made into a very strong latte by using my new milk jug - twice... About half past two I started shaking. I checked my blood sugar (type 2 diabetic) and it was fine. My headache from the past few days had gone but let me tell you, I was ready to fly. I've never taken anything other than prescribed drugs and I don't smoke but this was something. I sat down with a 2 litre bottle of water and drank the lot but it was some two hours later before I felt well enough to walk. Still, had a great time experimenting and was amazed at how much of a difference a few accessories made. I guess I should be more careful tomorrow and if the shots are anything but acceptable I should abandon my Aberdonian Flag Day roots and just bin them. Oh, and if the wife should ask - it's vitally important to purchase a bottomless portafilter and basket along with the new grinder Al
  10. Well I've had a naked PF for around 6 months now and it's great. You can really improve your technique as it shows any tiny faults. Also it never needs cleaning. I haven't cleaned it since I've had it and it's still spotless and shiny! Gives you a much better idea when blonding occurs too.
  11. Hi All, I'm selling this pre-loved bottomless portafilter for gaggia on behalf of my friend. It's £25 inclusive of delivery (ono). Condition is very good and itt comes with a used 18g/double basket. Many thanks
  12. Hi Everyone, Anyone know where to get a decently priced naked/bottomless portafilter for the Pavoni Europiccola (pre-millennium model)? Or does anyone have it on offer? Many thanks
  13. Sorry folks but I am ridiculously excited by having acquired a naked PF and watching that pour develop. I can certainly see why it's so frequently recommended. I bought a walnut handled one off ebay, and it is a nicely balanced and solid. A picture of the PF in situ and when I have worked out how to post it, I'll stick on a short clip of my fifth attempt at a pour.
  14. Got my naked pf delivered so decided to have a go with the various Rave beans that I got last week. Shot 1 - My first ever naked pf shot. a) RAVE Signature - 16g (give or take .0n) b) Aiming to "fill" a shot glass - to drink as espresso "Normal" prep. Flick the switch (few seconds pause). 4 tails fairly evenly spaced - Very dark/no crema all 4 pale with crema (quickly) combining to single reasonably central tail Glass full before obvious blonding (to my limited eyes/experience) Pretty pleased with this "technically". Actual shot tasted good..... Shot 2 a) RAVE Fudgy-Berry b) Aiming to fill shot glass - but drink as "flat white" (to be honest - drink mixed with hot milk as I haven't really got going with proper steaming/micro-foaming) "Normal" prep. Flick the switch (few seconds pause). 1/2 dozen tails less even spacing - Almost immediately pale/crema (quickly) combining to single reasonably central tail with a bit of a "ghost" tail to oneside Glass full before obvious blonding (to my limited eyes/experience) Pretty pleased with this "technically". Actual coffee shot tasted OK..... Shot 3 a) RAVE Fudgy b) As above Pretty much as per above..... Actual coffee Nice! Shot 4 a) Rave Italian b) Aiming for espresso "Normal" prep. Flick the switch (few seconds pause). Loads of tails - dark Several drips/spits - watery/colourless Mainly combined to single tail.... no obvious crema Spits and spatters all over the place End result - thin looking, a bit of feeble froth (can't call it crema) In the sink - it is NOT going to taste good! Shot 5&6 (Italian) More of the same although the final result did at least have "some" body and was drinkable (but not good) Shot 7 (Italian) - Quite a reasonable drink but still spitting and spluttering! Now as the first few seemed to be OK could this be the coffee.... Has anyone else had big issues with Rave Italian? NB - All the beans had the same roast date (within 1 day) Thurs/Fri last week (10-ish days) I didn't just knockout 7 shots in one hit this was over last night and today I am sticking to 16g and the same size shot glass (although I know the actual output might be a bit different)
  15. So I treated myself to a new naked PF and so far it has been fantastic. I don't know if I am more conscious about dose and distribution, if the beans I have have hit a sweet spot in terms of age or it's a combo of these and other unknown factors or if it's because of the new PF but the shots have been the best I have produced. Happy bunny The question I have though is about the basket. The one that came with it was a Rancilio 21g jobbie but I swapped that to the std double that I am used to and that is what I have been getting these great shots from. How do you dose a 21g basket, how long do you pull the shot for, what's the benefit ? Are you looking for a "triple" or does it allow you to just pull the best part of the shot before it starts to blonde ? I'll be honest, I've not tried using it yet so I will have a play to find out for myself but wanted a steer in the right direction. Cheers
  16. Those of you that have both, stock and naked PF...do you recommend bottomless PF?...does it make a difference on which machine? Besides much better crema, does the shot taste better?...that is my main concern. I can buy a Rancilio naked PF, (not the cheap reproduction) on sale @40pounds, free delivery with a 20g filter. Is it worth it? How do you deal with single shots? On Silvia I never use single shot filter, so it would be minimum doubles... Thanks for your advice/thoughts
  17. Naked Portafilter has (I believe) a triple shot basket, good condition with normal scuffs around the lugs - £15 posted Double Spouted Portafilter with double gaggia basket and plastic screw off spout - £12 posted Thanks!
  18. Hi - I’m thinking of a Naked PF for my Pro600 - has anyone bought one and know’s that it fits the group head?
  19. I've bought these when I still had the Caravel, but now that's gone and I'm left with two, brand new, naked PFs which I wouldn't mind passing on to someone who can actually use them. One is a slightly smaller 46.2mm and the other one is the larger 47.1mm version, they will take different baskets, so please bear that in mind and check your basket outside diameter before pulling the trigger. Price is £50 for one, which is roughly half of what they are currently sold for. https://www.werkstatt-kunst.de/epages/63130131.sf/de_DE/?ObjectPath=/Shops/63130131/Products/101006101H NOTE: WS used to sell two sizes, I guess they no longer do that, but if you are using Ponte Vecchio baskets I'm fairly sure you need the larger 47.1mm version. T.
  20. This is a Naked Portafilter for Gaggia from Happy Donkey. Bought last month, I no longer have the Gaggia machine so this is surplus to requirements! Comes with the 21g Triple Basket and also standard Double filter basket (all from Happy Donkey; unpressurised). The triple basket has never been used, the double only a couple of times. I also bought a chrome button for the end of the portafilter's handle, as it was supplied new with just a hole for a button/logo and I thought it looks much more the part with the chrome button! The p.f., chrome button and two baskets came to about £37 in total; I'm looking for £26 (on nearest offer), including postage.
  21. Decided that with my new grinder I'd like to finally change to a bottomless portafilter for my Gaggia and with that maybe pick up a second hand tamper(my current is a 58mm) to try out. I suppose a new basket goes hand in hand with this(I typically dose 18g). However, mainly I would just like to try and get hold of a second hand bottomless portafilter! If any of the fine people in this forum have any of these items lying collecting dust surplus to requirements please speak up. Thanks
  22. Heya... was wondering if anyone had a spare naked portafilter for the millenium (51mm) pavoni? I only just acquired a machine, otherwise I would have jumped on the one which sold 2 weeks back. I'll be willing to offer the same £35 + 3 postage Thanks!
  23. with the help of 3 members here (more later) - i now have a naked PF for the Gaggia the successful initial 'trial' was with the last of the CC Sweet Bourbon - lovely with a touch of milk i think this extraction is as it should be, so well pleased..! but comments welcome sometime later loaded the hopper with RAVE Signature ---- disaster.... 1.....a huge amount of high-speed foam the Gaggia has been ON all day - it seems a large head of steam had built up i thought the 1st thermostat took care of that..? when switched OFF there was a massive back-surge into the drip-tray - unusual.!! 2.....so vented the steam - lots for 20secs then pulled a shot OK but no crema at all --- in the sink [twice] the beans were roasted 30/11 = too old.? --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- BTW - no spritzers so far - 58.35 MBK tamper [thanks @risky] in 18g VST basket......... i'll let it cool and try some more have a good NYE....
  24. Down Car has been written off due to run in with a lorry 2-3 mins from home last week. No one's fault, blind corner, country lane not wide enough for car and lorry........further downer only written off due to uneconomic repair cost compared to value of car. It's still drivable but once written off that's it no insurance and I'm stranded looking for a new one as of now and due to remote living location have to be up at before five to get bus to a then lift to get to work for 8am at a distance of roughly 23/4 miles. Up I'm still alive and a naked PF arrived today..... Down The first attempt through it was utterly shocking and a poor attempt done while on and off phone to insurance...(advice: don't attempt to make a decent cup when stressing about other things, take a time out and relax, do it properly) Up The second attempt (while focusing solely on the task in hand) was pure class and a joy to watch pour and drink. End result Yeah I have no car, have find a new one and live in the countryside where public transport is even worse than usual BUT hey I could have come off a lot worse and just made a great cup of espresso! Isn't it amazing how a good cup can cheer you up I'll be needing another of those at about 5am then hahaha
  25. As per title. I am after a Naked P/F to play around with on Brewtus. Not too fussed on condition What have you?
