I'd like to thank everyone who's provided the wealth of information that's prompted me to join this site to take fuller advantage of the knowledge you can provide.


Thanks to some of the tips I've read on the site, I've so far managed to acquire myself a second-hand Rancilio Silvia, as well as a slightly older model of the meCoffee PID which I've got really dialled in after a little experimentation.


Having made the realisation that the shop-bought (Monmouth) espresso grind wasn't really cutting it, I just yesterday took delivery of a second-hand Mazzer Royal. I managed to pick one up for a steal on eBay. It was the purchase of this that prompted me to join - so I could see the images from jimbojohn55's tear-down, and a little more about how to modify it for single-dosing.


I won't go into too many details here in this intro thread about my coffee journey, or ask for advice, but I'm looking forward to participating in the community, and getting some more interactive help on my setup.
