Hi there,

 

I bought some in August whilst visiting family, but was dissapointed to see there isn't a roasting date, so have no idea when it was roasted. Its sitting half used in the cupboard!

edit: Mystery 11 from Coffee Compass arrived today.  Can't believe its roasted and posted on the same day!

I ring the guy up, he logs his roasting dates and can tell you from the code on the pack. He roasts to order.

Haha! I’m glad I was in your thoughts, not for anything useful mind... in all fairness I had the beans a day within roasting. Might crack them open now at the end of the third day... it’s too tempting!

A nice package from Francesco. Parts for La Peppina (new seal for the base, new set of gaskets, new better made bigger basket, new screws). Cleaned machine, put all new in, used silicone lube and did the test. Works like a charm, and I can up the dose cause of the basket up to 15 g in and 40-42g out, this is fantastic. The most visible improvement is the piston o-ring hold the water in, no more leaks so before I was pushing 30-32g out max, now I can push 40-44g out and I did a pressure test and it holds pressure for 3-5 mins no problem.

Sorry @marc1882 I don't believe I am going to sell any of them soon. Need to send base to powder coat or to eloxation/anodizing. It took me some time to search for a machine that fits my needs. I would never consider a 1h heating long, big boiler lever machine, because I drink 1 or 2 espresso/day no milk. The water I dump after each use, fresh water always.

 

PS: Already had Pavoni (to low dose out), Flair (to low temperature for Light roasts long shots), and almost got robot but (to low temp control for 1 minute shots+).

From the craftsman Nicknak

 

These quite simply feel fantastic, and look even better in real life.

So beautiful in fact, that my wife’s quite happy with these increasing the size of my coffee corner.

Any questions re the grinder give me a shout and I’ll try and help, I really enjoyed it when I had one and was markedly better than the old mignon in my opinion.

Why so many photos of coffee bags without a sample of the coffee within them? It's nice to see the bag but seeing the coffee as well would be nice....Otherwise it's just a bag, perhaps a nice looking one but a bag just the same.

Well this is the 'What did the Postie bring you today' thread isn't it? Folk may wish to keep freshly ordered beans sealed until they use them...

Super helpful answer, thanks for that.

same goes mate as your initial complaint did not make sense to me either. But please elaborate! It's just that I strongly doubt they would crack open different bags and post images of the content to do you justice. Don't we have other sections and threads to discuss beans once we are tasting them.
The way I see it, people posting in here just are excited about what they've received earlier that day.
Also, if you wish to let off steam, we even have at least one thread for that as well!
See, even though you don't like forum structure let's stick to it as we cannot change it, anyways.

I accepted your reply as making sense, something I had not thought about of course was people wouldn't open them straight away. Perhaps an area/posts where people can follow up about the beans they got, how they looked, tasted extracted with some photos etc... For me there is some real interest there. I appreciate the photos of the bags and their excitement, it's just a pity it's not taken to that next step where we are actually talking about the coffee inside the bags.

I don't believe I complained?  Don't think I let off steam and I have not complained about forum structure.

 as @lake_m said.

It’s a thin line. I’ve written, rewritten, re-read posts and then thought ‘sod it’ and deleted it. Not worth the sh*t storm if it’s misinterpreted. 

Forum etiquette is a skill that should be taught in schools 😆

Perhaps I shouldn't have posted it, I have not posted in a while and this certainly isn't encouraging. I am surprised at your reply especially since the last communication we had was a PM from you asking for my advice, which I freely gave. Perhaps I upset you in some way when I did that?
