    I see crankhouse coffee are doing it at £15 for 150g so £1.80 for a brew. Not bad value if itís as good as they say. (From a speciality coffee point of view)
    Yeah its amazing, was gonna be used for the barista world championships which was cancelled so they released it to the public

    Blimey. It takes me 150g to dial a new coffee in half the time.

    Tbh, I keep dose always the same and mange to go 1 click either way on the grinder, dont change anything else

    I mean a may let the shot have a bit longer or stop a bit quicker so I suppose technically I'm maybe need two or 3 shots to perfect, I meant really just machine and grinder settings

    If after a couple of shots I'm left with just timing I'm happy, so yeah probably 4 shots maybe but for me that's 56g

    150 though eek

    Whenever I get given or buy expensive coffee like that I always have it as filter so no wastage.
    Had a stunning wush wush from Gardelli a while back which was great, huge body and even as it cooled right down to tepid it was still a great cup. Think that retailed at Ä30 for 250g was far more enjoyable than Geisha which having tried a few Iím not a huge fan of.

    Coffee thread

    Just read this article. It seemed relatable to the thread here so thought Iíd share. I know very little about coffee with the exception being that my neighbour makes by far the best tasting coffee Iíve ever had... with a shot of baileys or rum cream.... and if it cold outside an additional shot of bourbon.

    It's behind a paywall, for me at least.

    is that a classic with the tray on back to front ?

  12. #162
    Might be one of those 3D printed lower trays that somebody on a coffee forum was making? (Canít remember where I saw that)

  13. #163
    Yes its the 3d printed lower trays I bought from the coffee forum , means you have more room for scales and bigger cups

    They are made by Joe Frex in the US sold by Bella Barista here but awaiting stock

    With a Classic you have to remove the plastic cover form the scales as it covers the solenoid blow off hole

    Yeah, for a tenner, easier to get a slightly taller glass under with scales

    Thanks.

    Both the scales and the drip tray look ideal for the classic.

    And for coffee related stuff are reasonably priced.

    Yeah, I've kept things reasonable so far, but I'm about to order a Niche Zero and I've just spent 300 quid on a Mahlgut tamp and leveller

    I just canít get excited about the niche. It looks like a toy, and has dubious build quality. Results certainly seem good for now, but how long theyíll last is my main concern.

    Itís a good place with some friendly knowledgeable folk, but the new owners are odd. Theyíre not making the money they expected, so do odd things. I had a barrage of fairly off colour emails from one of them, so I stopped posting. I still browse, but never post.

    Whats makes you say that about the build quality? Have some been failing?
