 very belated update to this saga.

I finally moved house and on Monday Paul and I managed to liaise for me to pick up the Mythos.

Since I got it home I've changed the burrs (I had an idea that the burrs might be worn and they were), taken the front tamper off and given it a clean.

I've dialled in a few different coffees now but it's not that easy to single dose. I have been looking at solutions like lens hoods and puffers but haven't come to any form conclusions yet.

I have to say the espresso coming out is a totally different from the Sette 270Wi I've been using. The mouthfeel and body is just so smooth and silky. I'm even enjoying my wife's decaf - the first time I've truly enjoyed decaf in my life.

It is big, I would love to make it a bit smaller but I'm not sure I could do that without making it very ugly. My wife doesn't mind the size but she said it looked a bit knackered - fair point tbh. 

Anyway, thanks again to @paul whu 

He's a lovely chap and really went out of his way for me, a complete stranger. Warms the heart!

She does look a little tired but I reckon with a new lick of pain she would look lovely again.

 I will get the case resprayed if I keep it, would make it look a look more palatable.

Does someone on here cut down the hopper and make wooden lids?
