  1. Hi Looking for tips on where to buy a couple of things. I've been participating in the forum for a short while. Obtained a Gaggia Paros a loooong time ago (maybe 2001) but then ended up using a Baby Classic. Typically always used supermarket beans, and winged it in terms of process etc. The Paros has been refurbed with a new boiler, Silvia wand, and brass dispersion plate holder and I have been drinking some lush fruity beans from Coffee Compass (Cherry Cherry being high on my list of likes). I might also need a tamper, but seem to be getting on OK with a homemade polyurethane one a friend gave me (do they really make THAT much difference?) Next steps are to try an old Santos grinder I have, posted about in another thread, but in the meantime I'd like some suggestions for ancillaries. I think I'd like to try some scales, preferably inexpensive, just to see if the weighing approach works for me. To be honest, I'd like some cheap ones in case I can't be bothered, but I'd at least like to see if I can perceive a difference. I need a blind basket and some cleaning product too (never having backflushed oops). What is the preferred cleaning product for Gaggia please? I think I'll try and order the cleaner and blind basket together to save postage (possibly with the scales too, though I suspect ebay might be the best option) Other than that I am holding out on a Tour de France code I read about for crankhouse, or another Coffee Compass order (unless I can get to a roaster in the meantime). Thanks for all the helpful input that got me this far.
  2. Hi guys, Just wondering if I need to start looking for new scales. I've got my machine on the way now and was wondering if my Digital Salter Disc scales would be ok? This would just be for espresso not for brewed coffee if that makes a big difference.
  3. Hi all since starting on Monday ive followed your advice and got me some scales off Ebay http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/1000-0-1g-Gram-Mini-LCD-Digital-Pocket-Size-Jewelry-Gold-Balance-Weight-Scale-/291264358507?nav=SEARCH ok was wondering what am I weighing and how much beans to put in grinder? powder to dose with? could any one please point me in the right direction sorry for the dumb questions again cheers
  4. What are the preferred/most common scales that people buy? I have some small electric kitchen scales already, but the area is only just big enough for the portafilter and they reset themselves to quickly

    Hi..ive seen lots of posts regarding weighing my beans..could anyone recomend a decent set of scales please..
  6. So I have some scales that are great for measuring dose but when I put my mug on to tare out and measure my espresso output they go crazy. Any tips for finding a set of scales which are sensitive to low weights but don't fail when a mug is placed on them?
  7. Purchased one of these scales just over 1 week ago on my third set of aaa batteries:bad: got to be faulty surely back to Amazon I think any one had similar problems?
  8. Very light use (1-2 drinks a day from new at the end of April 2016) . All trays still in protective wrap. Only for sale as I've treat myself (my wives' most hated phrase at the moment to a set of Acaia Lunar scales for no other reason than they're sexier (I'm fickle what can I say). £30 + PP *The sales blurb* The Brewista Smart scale is the perfect scale for the home or cafe barista. Its features and abilities are amazing. Nano coating means the scale is water-resistant. If the scale gets wet it should continue to function. If they stop working after getting wet just give them and shake and let them dry out. They will start up again. Perfect for brewing on and placing on your drip tray to weigh your shots. 6 Modes & Rubberised coating The six modes are in built into the software. All functions are automatically started. Weight and time is held for 5 seconds after vessel is removed. This truly is a smart scale: Auto1: This is an espresso mode. Place cup on scale and time/weight go to zero and timer start counting up. Auto2: This is the second espresso mode: Place cup on scale and time/weight go to zero, start espresso machine and press orange timer button and scale timer starts. Remove cup and time and weight go back to zero. Auto3: Place cup on scale, will auto tare. This is for espresso machines with built-in timers. Auto4: Place cup on scale, will auto tare. When espresso hits the cup the timer starts automatically, weight is displayed. Hand1: This is a pourover mode. Add brewing vessel to scale and weight goes to zero. Add coffee grounds after 3 seconds weight goes to zero. Start adding water and weight and timer start. Remove brew vessel and both weight and time go back to zero. Hand2: This is a manual pourover mode. User tares and starts timer.
  9. Hi guys, I'm looking out for Coffee Scale and Milk Thermometer for my Barista Express. Are there any particular ones that I should watch out for or any basic one would do. I'm currently using digital kitchen scale which doesn't have decimal points and its' a pretty basic one. Also what other equipment should I get to maintain my machine please. Or a list of thing I need to do with my machine. Will following the instruction booklet that comes with it be enough? As I'm still a newbie I need some guidance please. many thanks. mark.
  10. Having just got hold a Gaggia classic (thanks Dave!!) - I'm now after a 58mm tamper (~ £20), a 60z milk jug or equivalent, set of scales, set of shot glasses and a milk thermometer.. Can anyone help?
  11. Any advice on scales for weighing/dosing so I guess pocket scales are what I'm after - my existing kitchen scales don't seem accurate for small amounts 10-20g dose? The Hasbean ones seem a reasonable price but postage takes it to £18 which seems allot. Maplins ones are twice that!! What are peeps using? Kitchen scales or pocket scales?
  12. Just wondering whether any of you who have the popular Chinese scales usually brought from eBay have encountered any problems when it comes to changing batteries. For some reason mine do not seem to work with any triple A batteries I have tried to fit. I had to resort to leaving one of the original batteries and using one new battery but now that method doesn't seem to work as well Any ideas?
