  5. The following wording was taken straight from @MildredM post when I bought this in March from her. It is faultless and I love ising this and the Torr.

Kafatek Grooming Tool for 58mm baskets New from KafaTek August 2017 and used probably half a dozen times There is a slight scratch through the black coating. It arrived like this but I didn't feel
  7. Hi all, For one reason or another, after only about 20 months of enjoyment, I'm being coerced by my *ahem* better half, into getting rid of my cherished Gaggia Classic machine and Super Jolly grinder. Gaggia is a 2010 model manufactured in Italy. Both items are in full working order, and it is an extremely reluctant sale, but at least I know these will be going to a good home. The Classic machine will come with a new steam wand attached which I was recommended to get by you good people on the forum. Also a milk jug and a lovely wooden handled tamper. The Mazzer SJ come
  8. Hi guys, Looking for some more advice. Are these calibrated tampers worth while for a novice like me? Im struggling to get an even tamp and always twist at the end, grrr. I'm hoping one of these might help with consistency? A naked portafilter is a proper disaster, I have nearly blinded myself twice with the side jets of water. When I first bought the machine from Anton he demonstrated the use of it and it produced perfect results, so I know it's not the machine. Thinking about this one? Any thoughts? https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B06XQVG6GJ/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encodi
  9. Does anyone have any experience for UK suppliers of custom engraved tampers. Looking for a decent 58.5mm tamper with some decent heft, with a couple of words engraved on it. Any suggestions very welcome
  10. Heavy tamper (hand made from Czech republic) 58.6mm flat £30 delivered. Weight approx. 380g.
  11. Used for the shortest of short whiles (you could count on your fingers how many times its touched coffee), I then sold my espresso machine without having a clue what I was buying next (the long way of saying its in pristine condition). It's been boxed up ever since with no immediate sings of seeing any 'spro action here 58.6mm Base means its only suitable for precision baskets (VST etc). Granted its not the cheapest, but I thought I'd see if it tickles any forum members before I list it elsewhere. £165 inc P&P (£155 if collected).
  12. TORR 58.5mm Goldfinger with Palisander handle - £45 Delivered Motta 58.4mm - £15 Delivered SOLD Both in excellent condition.
  13. 1st rough knock up, though it is so much better than the piece of crap plastic I was using before.....
  14. Afternoon guys, Just bought this tamper, but decided to go for something darker. Its a lovely piece and has a good weight to it. Flat base. £20 posted. 20180801_132848 by [/url] 20180801_132936 by 20180801_132735 by
  15. For the last few weeks I have been having consistently not-sweet coffee. I don't tamp hard because when I do it seems to clog the machine. Lately I started tamping hard. REALLY hard. And this has brought out all the sweetness in my coffee. I actually look forward to cups now. It is the only thing I changed other than using spring water (ASDA's super budget range) but the spring water was still un-sweet with a weak tamp force. Thanks!
  16. Hi all, Have just purchased a DTP which is arriving Monday (very excited!). Spent a while weighing up this or a Gaggia Classic but I feel the DTP will be the best fit for me. I'm also on the lookout for a Mazzer SJ (let me know if you see anything!) but just wanted to check what other bits you guys are using alongside the DTP to get the most out of it. So far I've worked out I will need the following: Scales - any recommendations? I see the AMIR amazon ones seem to be good value? Tamper - 53mm - will any aluminium one do or is there a favoured one by DTP owners? Beans
  17. Selling my Gaggia Classic as I have now upgraded. The machine is the version with the bigger solenoid. Works very well and has been regularly cleaned and descaled and I also live in a soft water area. It has the Raincilio steam wand upgrade. The steam wand does drip a little but doesn’t affect its use when it’s up to temperature and creates very good steam pressure. I can create perfect microfoam. This part can be replaced if it bothers you. Comes with all original spares, and a stainless milk jug. Original steam wand and wood handle tamper and tamper mat included. Im looking for £
  18. Sold Torr Metal Rosso tamper with plan to convex (plan2convex) base. Marks on the base at the flat to convex transition but otherwise in excellent condition £25 delivered More about the base from @coffeechap in 2014
  19. Hello everyone! I am moving from UK, and I won’t have any space to use all of my coffee equipment in my next apartment, therefore I am selling my beloved and well maintained items. (Sadly…) Please have a look, and let me know if you like to see in person, or buy anything. Pick up is available from Shoreditch, London. Everything can be posted at buyer’s responsibility. For espresso machine and grinder, I would like someone who can see the machine/grinder, agree and pickup in person, but can be posted. Please note, these items are all sold separately and not b
  20. Cheapo OCD style distribution tools? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Coffee-Distributor-Leveler-tool-Distribution/dp/B077D98GW2/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1518635326&sr=8-2&keywords=coffee+distribution+tool https://www.amazon.co.uk/Espresso-Distributor-Leveler-Macaron-Portafilter/dp/B075PG5BX1/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1518635326&sr=8-1&keywords=coffee+distribution+tool Thinking of getting one, I tend to just use my finger but sometimes get a very fine jet at the very edge of my portafilter... Cheers
  21. So - I would assume from its name 'T58' that it is a 58mm Tamper. However not only is it 58mm but it is also 84mm, and 97mm. What all these measurements refer to is up to your imagination. Anyone think they can decipher it? It doesn't look like a level lock tamper...
  22. hi all, I just wanted to share few pics of the tamper that @joey24dirt made for me, the base is 54,8 mm for the IMS baskets I use with the Portaspresso it is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship, with quite a unique look, very convenient and effective at use
  23. ​Selling my whole set up as have just upgraded. Will now split. 2003 Gaggia Classic with Rancilio Silvia wand. Regularly Descaled and live in soft water area. Includes two baskets, Old steam wand, blanking disc for backflush and original spare parts. Stainless milk jug included. Only slight issue is wand leaks a bit but doesn’t effect steam operation. I can make perfect microfoam. £100 collected 2014 Mazzer Super Jolly Timer including grinds tray and laser etched gauge for adjustment accuracy. Like new condition apart from slight scuff to upper side where I scraped it. Very minor. No
  24. Happy new year to everyone. What is the correct size for a Motta tamper for a Sage DTP please? I've gone and ordered a 53mm but now wondering if it should be 54mm. Many thanks.
