I'm always interested to see how many people have followed the same basic path. Given me lots of ideas for upgrades too...

That's some quick upgrades. What made you move on from the Zenith? Forgetting the other features was is about the same as the SJ in the cup?

Just reputation of the K10. First time with a conical grinder too. If i dont find an improvement in the cup then i'll regret it as i went for the 65e for ease of use. But the price difference is low as am buying the k10 second hand. If all is well then i may start to save for an E10 but thats a way off yet.

 

But in the cup was the 65e was no different to the Super Jolly. If I don't find what I want from the K10 then I'll get another 65e. Just from the ease of use point of view.

when I can afford it I'll either get a Vesuvius or a Izzo Alex Leva I have been looking at the L1 as well but it's way to deep, but all of them really need to be plumped in, something I can not do at the moment, and I also do not have the space for any of them in my tiny kitchen.

 

Lever with a pump, just seems wrong to me, so I'm not considering any that comes stock with one.

Marine Ices was somewhere we used to go when I was about 7 :)

No, it was a 1930's ice cream parlour called The Regent Milk Bar which remained in tact until 2002 when it was turned into a fried chicken joint. It featured as a location in many films, including Absolute Beginners. The Italian owners had an incredible recipe for their coffee ice cream which I've never been able to better anywhere else. I used to go to Marine Ices too, but it wasn't as good!

I'm wondering if my memory is failing me and that I was thinking of the Regent Milk Bar. Was it on the east side of Edgeware road about 50-100 yards south of Henry's? Now I think about it, Marine Ices were, I think in Camden.
