I have been digging around on this forum over the past month or so and thought I'd say hi. I'm pretty much a noob to espresso making though I've enjoyed coffee all my life.

Anyone using a modified Dualit (Starbucks) grinder and had good results? Thanks, Tim

Apparently just north of London there is somewhere called Leeds (I understand it's near Birmingham, Inverness and all that.) Has anyone been there, and does anyone who has, know of anywhere good for coffee - perhaps near the train station - please? (I just Googled and Mrs Atha's rings a bell from an old Has Bean video?) Thanks!
