Delurking in West Sussex

Recommended Posts

Have been researching a first home espresso machine for over a year now and have been lurking here for almost as long. I drank some amazing espresso in a little coffee shop in Brighton (Marwood Bar and Coffee House) and have been wanting to get even close to that more frequently ever since - no coffee shop locally has come close. I did the research and basically came to the conclusion that it's beyond my budget and skills. Then lockdown came into force and with just a mokka pot at home, together with my parter @Jasetaylor (another newbie here) we started on the journey to better home coffee. We got a burr grinder and an aeropress and want to try a V60. We then found a local roaster (Cast Iron Roasters) and gradually am feeling more confident to step a toe into home espresso making. We're looking to get either a Rancilio Silvia or a Gaggia Classic and have just put an order in for a Zero Niche grinder (october delivery). It's been a steep learning curve so far but seems to get better the further down the rabbit hole we fall.

Thank you 😊 - the caffeine has the added benefit of helping me keep up with him on walks except for his zoomies - there’s no keeping up with those!

As the owner (or property?) of a whippet/saluki mix, I wholeheartedly agree!
