Just discovered this forum. Hi everyone

Recommended Posts


My name is Jose, I live in Maidenhead I've been in the UK for over 5 years now and I've been upgrading my coffee setup since I moved here. 

I started with an Aeropress and a manual grinder, I then added a V60 and a Delonghi burr grinder (The cheap one). Later came the Barista Express which stayed with me until earlier this year. Bialetti, French press and my beloved Chemex ❤️ 


I also used to roast my own coffee in a Behmor 1600 but the GF got annoyed with the smoke and smell :(


Big fan of filter coffee and medium roasts, Honduras, Guatemala and that neck of the woods always a winner for me

My current setup consist of a Moccamaster, a Wilfa Svart and a Chemex. I still have everything else except for the BE which I sold (Stupid me, I'm trying to get back to home espresso) 


See you around!

Hi Jose. Welcome to the forum. 

We're definitely on the same page. I also use a Wilfa Svart for my V60's. I may add a chemex too at some point. I'm also into the medium roast filter coffees. Generally like a good caramel like Colombian but also like a good African fruit bomb now and then. 

Are you Spanish? Portuguese? What's the coffee scene like there in comparison to the UK?
