They're a bit of a faf really. Actually bought them for weighing air rifle pellets (I know, sad) in grains. They only weigh up to 100g. So probably not that suitable.

@joey24dirt how did you get the bottomless portafilter? Is this something you did yourself? If so are you interested in charging for people to send their portafilters to you to be made bottomless? :o

Hi yes I had the machined out at work. I just bought a spare from sage then used my old one to convert. I did think about maybe offering some sort of service but not too sure. Mine certainly isn't perfect so I would hate for people to be unhappy.

 

I do however have some contacts at machining firms locally that we used for more detailed work. They've just converted a 58mm OCD knock off distributor to 53.5 for me so I might be able to work something out. I'd maybe need a decent amount to do in one hit. I even thought about buying a load and converting but don't have that much spare cash lol

I'll have a look into it. We have just had the lathe spruced up a little bit at work so I've been waiting for that to be finished. It's also a strange place my work. We are meant to have training modules on certain equipment. As I haven't got the "official" work module I'm not supposed to use it. Of course there aren't any gaffers in on a weekend though

 

I'll keep you posted though

I don't know if I mentioned before but to buy them from sagethey cost £37-£38 delivered. With an additional double basket it's just over £40. It's a shame they won't be able to offer bulk discount on a load of them.

I've just made my best espresso to date . So I ground up 18g of this delicious Rwanda in the pf. Piled towards the centre then give the OCD knock-off a few spins. Good solid tamp and away we go. 1:2 and bang on 30 seconds. I don't usually pay too much attention to the time if I'm honest, as long as it's not getting ridiculous. Very tasty although I'm still rubbish at picking out the different notes. Thought I had a hint of citrus but who knows

Thank you it really is. I think I'll stick at these beans for a while just so I can't get to know them and hopefully start to pick up a few more lessons along the way. We'll see

That's what I do now, fill the hopper half full with the same bean - it's a better way to learn isn't it ;-)

Well I started weighing beans in so I knew what I had, then I got lazy and would let the auto function just give me whatever but yeah I'm probably best sticking to weighing them.

 

I was considering modding my grinder so I could have integrated scales lol

I bought a cheap OCD copy that was 58mm and had it machined down to 53.5mm to fit the Sage baskets

Money shot right there. Possibly ran it too long, even though it was a 1:2 ratio.

 

Not really sure. Thoughts please from the experts

I've found that too much emphasis is put on tamping. Distribution is often overlooked.

Provided your distribution is good tamp level, vertical pressure, until you feel the puck is firm and 'pushes back'.
