Me too! I was watching your livestream, trying to convince myself that it didn’t look too enormous next to the LR! I just about managed it, but the wife won’t be so easily won over

Damn it forgot the Stollen!!!

 

Massive thanks to everyone who organised it and came, definitely a place to be if you want to get a lever, but not sure which one.

 

Will post a link to some equipment shots later on.

Home sweet home.

 

No machine for me... just beans and a well used free cup which conveniently doesn’t match my stuff...

 

 

Only one way to resolve that. What clever marketing!

It's a nice photo but it has been drowned out by the sound of gnashing teeth!!!

Excellent day - talking coffee, drinking coffee and making coffee.

 

Thanks to everyone who came and huge thanks to all of those involved in organising - especially @coffeechap - and in supplying gear for the event in any capacity... Londonium Reiss especially, but also Chris at Conti UK and obviously Rave for the venue (again).

 

And well done (I guess) to Robw - for saving me from hassle of trying to get an LR in the back of my car.

 

It was great to see everyone.... now looking forward to the continuing return journey of Hasi and the infamous SD1.

 

 

Oops - apologies - whilst not present in person, thanks to Mildred for the badges and towels etc - a great touch and very kind!


Lots of everything: machines, grinders, roaster, beans, tampers, baskets, blah, blah

However - Too much is never enough!

Congratulations @RobW . . . You will love the L-R, and I know how much you wanted one

 

It was amazingly generous of Londinium to donate a machine - 3 cheers for Reiss
