  1. Hi After some research I have decided to buy a Sage DTP (£299 eCookshop.co.uk) and a Mignon V2 (179.99 MyEspresso.co.uk) as my first set up. It was a mixture of budget and covenience that provoked this after alternatives were considered (Sage Smart Grinder, Silvia, Classic, etc.) Anyway, I wondered what people's opinion of this combo was for a first timer? However, the crux of this thread is to ask for beginners tips on where to start using them: Do I need to do anything to the Mignon out of the box? Season the burrs etc? Should I use the pressurised baskets on the
  2. Hi all, loving my duo temp pro. having a niche grinder when it comes to upgrade from my mignon v2. just wondering if anyone has upgraded from the duo temp pro and found the coffee to be better? Im having a new kitchen put in so was thinking of upgrading my machine, however I’m not doing it if it’s only for the looks of the machine, rather than the taste of the coffee. I’m thinkin the niche grinder will make my coffee taste much better anyway but does the posher machines help too? Im only making for me usually but when family etc come round I occasionally make for th
  3. Hello there, After a number of years messing around with various machines - DeLonghi Expresso (you know the one), Gaggia bean-to-cup (ancient and mostly reliable), Delonghi Magnifica bean-to-cup, I have opted to buy something a bit better. Only making less than 10 cups a week, but looking to get some consistency. Collected a nearly new Sage Duo Temp earlier today and together with some fresh ground from a coffee shop. I've made the first brew and was pretty pleased with the results. The Milk turned in the Jug just as soon as the wand went in - wow! I spent almost my whole budget (OK,
  4. Hi all, I'm close to pressing the button on either a DTP with a Sage Smart Grinder or a Barista Express. Americano/long black is my regular choice of coffee but I do also enjoy espresso and cappuccino.... I'm just asking here anyone that has a DTP how do you use this for an Americano? Do you use a kettle for the water or the wand? I'm concerned using a kettle the water temperature might not be right but via the wand it could be messy due to the way it's 'poured' or more like sprayed out. With the Barista it comes with a water spout.... I'm really puzzled which way to jump. The BE was my firs
  5. Recently purchased a Krups Calvi Espresso machine during the Black Friday promotion (120 pounds), it has some interesting features for a budget machine like auto-purge and 3s low-pressure preinfusion. Although it can make some really decent shots, I found the steam wand to be a bit too underpowered my liking (it's even weaker than my previous 3-year-old Delonghi Eco310 without the Panarello attachment). It struggles to even froth (not to mention heat up) a small volume of milk (120-150ml) before the 75s auto shut off feature kicks in. Unfortunately, the steam wand issue is a deal brea
  6. I’ve just bought a DTP on Amazon for £249! Thought I’d share it here in case anyone else is interested in snapping one of these up. I paid an extra £28.75 for Amazon’s 2 years breakdown and accidental damage cover.

  8. Hi all, Been doing a lot of reading, but I am sure this question has been asked before, but I can't really find a definitive answer. Looking to buy myself some kit, and had my eye on the Sage Duo Temp Pro, especially as there are some good Black Friday deal on it right now. However, I have seen some mentions that one disadvantage of it is the fact it uses a non-standard tamper size, when the recommendation is 58mm? Have I got this right and, if so, why is the size an issue, and what difference does this make? Many thanks for your help
  9. I've been told about the IMS basket on the sage dtp From what I've read, La Spaziale fits alright, and I've been thinking about the triple basket as my average dose is around 17g of coffee grind. However, I've read that there are some issue with fitting into the group head and some modifications are needed. Also read somewhere that it was recommended to get the shower head that is designed for La Spaziale as well on the imsfiltri website. Would anyone enlighten me as to what is it that needs modification regarding the basket and whether I need to buy the shower head as well?
  10. Ok I currently have a sage smart grinder pro purchased new 2 weeks ago, also have a crappy cheap delonghi icona, had it 6 months from second hand only paid £40 for it but want an upgrade. The delonghi makes reasonable tasting shots with unpressurized baskets, but its frustrating having such a tiny boiler and such temperature instability and having to temp surf, and its really frustrating to make a latte for more than one person. I cant decide between Sage duo temp, barista express or double boiler. Budget doesn't matter can stretch as far as the double boiler new. But cant decide what
  11. What is the hot water option on the DTP actually for? Can you use it on the daily for a cup of tea or is that not a good idea?
  12. Hi I am a new member and would like to know if any of the members can tell me where I can buy a water tank for my sage duo temp Pro. Thanks. Tell
  13. Here we go. And a flat white I just made. I hope to learn how to do latte art one day.
  14. So, has anyone figured out a more 'elegant' way of removing the basket from the portafilter besides wedging a tea spoon in and lifting?
  15. Took the plunge yesterday, upgraded from my Classic to a Duo Temp Pro to go with my Smart Grinder Pro. Love the look and feel and the packaging and accessories see great. Taking a little getting use to but I'm hoping for good coffee ahead. Just wondered if any DTP owners had any advice/tips on getting the most from the DTP. Also when you time your extraction do you start the timer from the moment you turn the dial or from the moment you see coffee as it confuses me what with the pre infusion.
  16. my partner is going to purchase me my first coffee machine for xmas now am unsure which to go for as I was looking at the sage duo temp pro but having seen a few second hand machines for sale am unsure. Fracino Piccino is for sale currently and looks great but would that be an ok for machine to have? I was swayed to the sage due to the pid and ease of use. any input would be great. budget is max £300-400 also I do have a grind before that is a stated requirement and its a mazzer major purchased with the help of this forum
  17. I'm a complete coffee newbie so please be nice After lurking for the past week or so I've managed to convinced the wife that we need a new coffee machine, her only stipulation was that it has to be either silver or chrome to match the new kitchen, result. Currently we have a dolce gusto pod machine which is better than instant coffee but not great. We mainly drink cappuccino and latte but we also like to grab an espresso every now and again. I've had a good look at the Gaggia Classic, Rancilio Silvia, and Sage Duo Temp Pro but am still no closer to deciding what machine to get. Tha
  18. I'm just after opinions on both machines if possible from people who have used them. I'm likely to be in the market for an upgrade soon and like the look of both. Obviously there's a decent price difference between the two so I'm just wondering if it's worth paying the extra for the dual boiler. I currently have a 6 year old delonghi which is on its last legs I think. All opinions/views welcome cheers
  19. So I got bored the other night and thought I would open up my DTP to see what it looked like on the inside. I had messed about loads with my old delonghi and knew it inside out so thought I'd get to know this machine. I'm quite interested to see if I can figure out a way of controlling the purge a bit better, as in not ending up with a flooded storage tray after using the machine. It gets pretty annoying. It could just be down to the amount of steam under there when it "blows off" but who knows. Extending the rubber spout going into the drip tray could be an option. Anyway heres the the
  20. The 480ml milk jug that comes with the sage dtp is only suitable for making one drink, any suggestions for a larger jug that will work with the dtp, it only needs to do the milk for two flat whites. Concern is that if the jug is much bigger the tip will not touch the milk.

  22. Added the sage duo temp pro today. Still getting to grips but so far enjoying it! definite improvement over my delonghi icona which had started to struggle... First drink Here's the setup now!
  23. So, i have been worried about this purchase for a few days, and i took delivery a little while ago. Packaged beautifully as you would expect from Sage. I am actually very impressed at not only the look, but the quality of the machine feels very nice, about as heavy as my Classic at a guess. The portafilter is ok, i am not too disapointed which was one of my main concerns, but i can certainly live with it, although i hope sage offer different options soon. The tamper is awful, i will be upgrading that asap, but its usable for now, i will update exactly what size fits. The included milk j
  24. Hi there Need your advise...please I have mignon and duo temp pro for about three years now had to change burrs in mignon as couldn’t get rid of bad channeling even with freshly roasted coffee... Now with new burrs everything was working great like, but only for a week. Evry time getting uneven extraction no mater what... Have tried almost everything to get it working like it should be... and every time coffe puck split across like on this pictures. Have a look and please let me know what you think as Iam just step away from order new grinder. thanks...
  25. My Sage Duo Temp Pro has suddenly decided that it doesn't want to take water in from the water chamber. The pump runs (in both water and steam mode) and it sounds as though it is starting to take water in but then makes the more hollow sound that it would make if you had let the water tank run dry. The water tank is full and I tried it with the water tank filter removed to eliminate that as the problem source. It gets used once a day to make 2 lattes and gets descaled every 3 months. It is actually slightly overdue for a de-scale but had an extended period of not being used (for 3 mo
