The black scales are timemore scales but out of stock atm. But watch this space they may be for sale shortly. 

The niche i had, i dont know if it had an issuse or it was just me, but beans seemed to popcorn like crazy, the grinds seemed to be all over, wrongly o thought seeing alot of husk was a bad thing, when i was used to the mignons super clean grind. 

Ive got a specialta coming tomorrow so more pics haha

Need to stop using ebay 

My 'new' acaia pearl scales came today, there used, they work but thats not the point, up to the back teeth with dishonest sellers. Negitive feedback left. Feck them

yeah I get ya - you want to receive what you’ve paid for.....it’ll be part of the trade description act....

 

ah ok, I wondered if timemore were like the ‚Äėamir‚Äô ¬£13 scales off Amazon¬†

are there a lot of "knock-off" ones on amazon? i seem to be able to find them in stock but if you look at the descriptions they often don't specifically say they are Timemore or when they do say that in the title the "brand" is then listed as something different???

eg

https://www.amazon.co.uk/mirror-electronic-espresso-Rechargeable-kitchen/dp/B08BFZXCQQ/ref=psdc_3538314031_t1_B085FV6LSZ

 

Wouldn't want people getting stung by counterfeit ones

Wow, the rate at which you have replaced grinders! It sounds as a upgraditis fever to me¬†ūüėĬ†but the corner looks great.

Nothing succeeds as planned.

So id won some acaia pearl scales on ebay, listed as brand new, nevee used 

They turned up used. No real surprise,  

I sold the zenith65 on ebay, and picked up a brand new specillita off @BlackCatCoffee 

Decided new was best as i always seem to get burnt buying used.....

also had a second illy art cup come.

- worth it every time.

Baulked at the cost of them for a good long while, but don’t regret getting one and particularly like the extra clearance from the drip tray to the underside of the group the thinner lunar gives.

Id rather return them than just get paid out and keep them. As i wouldn't want to swindle someone. 

 

Yes, that's what I'd do...tbh I've only ever bought books off ebay, had one last month, got to page 182, next page was 293.. got in touch with the seller, they gave me my money back, and I reordered again from them.

Sooooooo

I thought id update this as ive not for a bit, 

In my quest to constantly waste money, ive done some up and down grading 

I bought a niche grinder but really didnt like the way it groud, hastely sold it and am bow kicking myself, i then bought a zenith65 from the forum, ended up needing fresh burrs, its a beast. Turns out its not what i like so ive also bow moved this on, and gone back to a mignon from @BlackCatCoffee thats due shortly. 

Machine wise ive gone from wood to ecm levers. Looks so much better, had a few ups and downs but plod along. 

next up i fancy a lever machine, should my house sale ever go through thanks to covid!!!
