Got back into the house this morning after walking the dogs.  Popped crumpets into the toaster - set to cremate.

Cleaned the group on the L1, coffee ground - 16.1g so near enough 16 for me.

Cup warmed and on the scales, pf tamped and in place

Pulled the lever down, drips in the cup so I released the lever

BANG !!!  pf hit the scales, cup hit the floor and smashed, coffee grounds and water everywhere, scales covered in water and not working

I can only think that I didn't fully lock the pf in place

Now to clean the rest of the mess

Preparing to prepare two espresso shots after lunch, I rearranged stuff on cup warmer so that espresso cups are front most. Odd, me thinks, someone put the milk jug on there upright and not facing down, as usual*. In an attempt to correct positioning Hasi nimbly flicks this jug around but WHAT THE FORKING HECK!! There's milk in it!!!

Well there WAS milk in it.

Spilled everywhere, wall, worktop, bean storage, onto the machine, and Jesus H Christ into them vents


Would have had other plans tonight than cleaning Rocket intestines...
I spare you any imagery as it would include reflexions of my mad, mad face!



*one cold jug resting on worktop to steam milk in and one hot jug to pour steamed milk into for homogenisation...

There is a joystick operated steam valve on my Vesuvius, quite easy to knock when preparing your next tasty beverage, which I do regularly and SHIT myself each time!

I was doing a v60 brew and after the first pour noticed what looked like a massive floating clump bouncing around in the brew. So I try pouring over it during the next pour to try and break it up but it seemed to hold together no matter how much I poured directly onto it. So I then tried giving it a little agitation with a spoon to break it up and it felt super hard. I then scoop it out and I had a whole unground bean just floating around in my v60!

I backflushed my Gaggia Classic with coffee today after deciding I could make one without my specs and picking up the wrong basket.

After ten seconds of complaining from the pump I thought ‘I don’t remember tamping hard...’

I definitely chucked out the filter rinse water from my v60 this morning before brewing.

Yep.

Nothing to see here. 

Everything's fine.

Double whammy today.

My only excuse is that incident one was early in the morning!

Incident 1 - grind, prep, tamp. Pull shot - gushes everywhere. As it's only the 4th or 5th time I used the 15g VST I assume it was just my prep so throw the espresso away.

Grind, prep, tamp. Gushy mcgusherson ensues... Then, I click.... I changed between beans the night before. Literally the definition of schoolboy error.

 

Incident 2. Get home from work, grind, weigh. 17.1 g... OK I'll just stick it in a 18g VST as they say the grind is roughly the same between 15 and 18g VST baskets. In the basket... Wow that seems really, really full. Overflowing full.

Empty basket back into shaker, yep 17g back in pf. Overfilled and some swept into bin.

Doesn't feel right but hey-ho on I go. 17:40 in 90 seconds ... Hmmm something definitely not right.

Look at the scales... Ah....

17 dwt.... Not grams. That'll be 26.5 grams in a 18g basket then!

You're going to like this one (hopefully)

I was preparing a shot today but rushing, weighed out the beans, grinded etc, locked in the portafilter and switched on with scale in place, anticipating the gentle drips of the delicious thick liquid. Instead I got horrible watery brown fast drips with hardly any pressure, stopped the shot, 😕wtf? Oh, I forgot to tamp!!!! 😔 how could I do this?

I'm normally all about the prep too, I didn't even give my leveller a spin.

I feel like I've let myself down and let the whole forum down. 😞🤣

Just invite yourself to a nearby forumite for a drink and a chat (I'm about 40 mins from you by the way....)
