It’s here 🥳

Flair signature espresso maker and royal grinder...IMG_20200921_204238094.thumb.jpg.23b512d3592f3be48444b71f072757de.jpg

Two shots in with a new coffee at the roughly recommended grind setting. The first went ok, pressure, time and taste were somewhere in the ballpark. So a bit of dialing in for the second, slightly finer grind setting, slightly harder tamp and it tasted......worse. Definitely and significantly worse.

You got in just before me! Let me know if you feel it improves your workflow, please? I’ll likely order one myself shortly, so it would be useful to know! Ta!

I used already. It’s one of those things which just make your workflow better, as you can leave the Niche doing its thing without you having to hold the PF under the spout. I prefer that to dosing into the cup. 
 

if you order one, make sure you also have a 3cm / 3.5cm tall funnel. Mine was made by @Nicknak.

Looks like I could have left it at 35mm 🙈...😂😂😂 .. I take it with Decent stand you don’t have to lift the PF too high to get it out of the stand , which is good ..

If I’ve done my job right, and if the Royal Mail has been kind to me, then this thread should be a flood of yellow in the next couple of hours...

Boom! Perfect! I’ve said a few times, I love the Kenyan. The last two weeks for me have been @BlackCatCoffee LSOL espresso and our Kenyan on V60.

Yeah the LSOL beans have been amazing for espresso. Shame I'm down to my last shot! All my other well-rested beans at the moment are absolute fruit bombs, which is great but fancy a switch up haha. 

This Kenya is an absolute banger as a v60, loving it! Maybe I'll try the Ethiopia later...

Ah I’m delighted! I might have to try and secure some more because I’m going to be sad when the last bag disappears. Thankfully we have a little while before that happens! Thanks so much for sharing

Kind FedEx man delivered a worthy companion for the Niche at last... tonight might be a late one 😬

(The wood on the Niche will be looking significantly more “walnuty” quite soon!)

Doh!  I was transported back to being a 7 year old and I just didn't think.  🤪

It's just a pity the Casuals didn't throw in a copy of the Beano or the Dandy?
