  1. So something I have never been sure about with scales. If I have a scale which is advertised as 0.01g x 500g Does this mean the maximum total weight I can use this scale for is 500g or Does this mean I can weigh 500g beyond its tared weight. So for example - If I put a Portafilter on this scale that weighs 495g, can I then tare it and weigh 20g of coffee into the basket?
  2. Dear Sage Forum members Happy New Year! We recently purchased a Sage machine & responded to the first CLEAN ME request- placing clean disc in 1 Cup Filter basket, cleaning tablet... cleaning cycle. No water came out of portafilter. Every video show water coming out of portafilter during cleaning cycle. Only water that came out was in drip tray. is this OK? The water pressure was extremely high during the cleaning cycles. Thanks in advance for your responses. Sincerely Jonathan
  3. Hi all. Just got my Oracle Touch but on the first try, I ended up with a question! The coffee turned out ok (a long black standard preset with a double filter installed) but does the Oracle know what size filter is installed? In some of the ther modes you seem to be able to select single or double, but not with a long black? Does it know to dose the correct amount of coffee? Also, I assume a long black is basically an Americano? Sorry if it's an obvious question!
  4. I am a Brew addict.. and i am tired of having this argument with my siblings and my question is..is there actually real evidence that is scientific that says coffee makes your teeth yellow? It would be interesting to hear your opinions
  5. Hi all, This is probably a really stupid question but I don't really understand the steam wand. It moves laterally (i.e. from the black end being just over the drip tray to a couple of inches to the right of the machine) but not up and down, so I struggle to tilt a cup or jug underneath it without spilling some of the contents. Am I being daft here? Is there something I am missing? Thanks!
  6. Guys i really wana start making good coffee at home and need some advice, is it worth buying this moka http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Moka-/261167418739?pt=UK_Home_Garden_Food_SM&hash=item3cceca8d73 i thought it was good value for money and its a perfect way to make a nice espresso in the morning, would you buy one of these mokas? Whats it like making an espresso at home with a moka? is this a good starter moka would it be ok fore taste and quality ? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Moka-/261167418739?pt=UK_Home_Garden_Food_SM&hash=item3cceca8d73 and most important beans should i buy ?
  7. Not sure where to post this, but a seller I found on gumtree who just sold a used SJ for £110 has another one which I can get for less because it has no hopper, but it looks quite old and damaged. I'm just wondering if it's worth actually going for this, especially because it's on the other side of the country so I would have to get it shipped. I could probably get it repainted eventually.

    Hi all, I Just joined the site today and am looking to purchase a pre 2009 model classic. apologies as I am sure this has been asked many times before but what are the best places to source these machines and what sort of money should I be spending? thanks in advance
  9. Hey all, I'm planning on giving bottled water a try in my sage espresso machine for a couple of months. My question is, should I leave the built in water filter in place or is it redundant when using bottled water. I plan on using either ashbeck or volvic. Cheers.
  10. I have limited space between the work top and cupboards in my kitchen, 390mm to be exact. I had almost decided on the Expobar Leva Dual Boiler until I realised it was 400mm tall. Is there anything with the same features that will fit my kitchen or am I going to have to get myself in trouble at home and modify the cupboards?
  11. Hi there! First post, and I had a question about options for little mods I've googled and searched this forum for many bottomless portafilter options for the Gaggia Classic. However, there seems to be some discrepancy with the post-2015 models. I have the newer post-2015 model, and many places that sell the "universal" bottomless portafilters say it is meant for pre-2015 classic models. Are there any bottomless portafilter options that will indeed work with the post-2015 model? Are there any with wooden handles? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Bottomless-Naked-Portafilter-Italian-Walnut-Handle-Gaggia-Classic-Coffee-Machine/162378179782?epid=1269077264&hash=item25ce7e64c6:g:cCoAAOSwcwhVKTCQ Would this work for my Gaggia Classic? It says it is 57mm.. but others on the forums have noted it works fine. Also, are there any other drip tray options that are smaller? I just can't fit even a 300mL mug under my grouphead. I think there was a fairly expensive stainless steel option, but just wondering if there were any more options
  12. Hi I just got a new Cherub and its my first HX machine so was wondering is it normal for the heating element to constantly go on and off? I turned it on this morning 30 mins ago and at first it was turning it on and off every 30 - 60 seconds and now its doing it every 1-2 mins. I would assume it would leave it on until it thinks its heated? Also loud clicks when it turns it on and off. Hopefully its normal! Thanks
