  1. Introductions
    Hi, Been a long time (years) lurker but this is my introduction and first post. I was a barista at a great local indy coffee shop for about 5 year (2014 - 2019) and was fortunate to work with some fantastic setups - La Marzocco Linea Classic, San Remo Opera, with Mythos ones and Ek43s. We had...

    OK so here's the current setup - I have a Niche Zero with a Sage Oracle Touch. It's a nice setup but there is something just off about the espressos I'm getting from my Sage. I feel like they lack consistency from shot to shot, day to day, despite grind/bean staying the same. I can't put my...

    Hello Coffee Lovers! So a long story short, I am opening a mobile coffee business in January 2021! Yey! My little van and I will be rocking up all over the Surrey and Hampshire area. I am looking for some advise from anyone who wants to give it! I have been a barista and manager for a longggg...
  4. Sage Forum
    I have just been informed that I am wrong and it's a failure to properly follow manufacturer instructions. As I don't own a Sage I figured it might be best to edit my post (to remove the inaccuracies), I don't want to give poor/incorrect advice on the forum, especially where it might develop...

    Hey Everyone, Over the last few years I have become a bit obsessed with coffee. My current set up is an Aeropress and Dripper, both of which give me amazing coffee with minimal effort every morning, time and time again. Now I want to invest in an Espresso Machine and the more research I do...
  6. Gaggia Forum
    Hi Just after some advice. A few months ago I purchased a used gaggia classic from 2003, cleaned it up, put on the rancilio wand, changed the group gasket etc. I've been offered a 2008 Gaggia TS for £250. Condition looks OK. Just wondering if it is a significant step up from the Classic...

    I am in the UK and wish to start my journey with espresso making. I have been manually brewing coffee with a siphon and a cafetiere for a few years now with a hand grinder. I am looking at getting a Gaggia Classic - second hand it seems you can find them in decent condition for ~£200, though I...

    So my latest trip to Italy forced me to ditch my modded Delonghi and get a real espresso capable grinder and machine. Against the original plans I actually ended up having two second hand machines because they were so cheap, and now I'm stuck.. Gaggia classic pre 2015 or Ascaso Steel Uno Prof...
  9. Brewed Coffee
    Hi all, I recently acquired a new Moccamaster thermos edition with a Baratza Virtuoso, I started off the grind at 20 on the Virtuoso and typically I will make 500g of coffee with 30g coffee to 500g water. With the grind at 20 it was super astringent and sharp. My best results so far have been...

Ive logged into amazon.co.uk and there's loads, so looking for some pointers as to a good one or make please. I...

    Hi all, I am looking to use tap water here in Dublin, Ireland to brew with. I have some questions about my water filter and water parameters here in Dublin which I have been told is soft water. I currently have a HMA filter set up with which I use to filter my tap water for drinking. It has 3...

    Hey all, I joined this forum a few weeks ago after purchasing a De'Longhi Eletta ECAM 44.660.B Bean to Cup. After a few weeks I've decided it isn't for me due to average taste in coffee and actually not very hot coffee. Also with reading a lot on this forum I'm going for the more manual option...
  13. Sage Forum
    Hi folks, I'm new to the forum. The first coffee forum I have ever registered. Really love good coffee. (Fav: 1. flat white 2. latte) I bought my Oracle in April 2016. Still excited about it. I use it every day. (still, I would still consider myself the worst Barista ever, but that's for...

    Hi there I'm buying a Vesuvius on the ACS Christmas deal, which I'm incredibly excited about! I have a question about the steam arm, which usually comes on the left hand side. It is possible to swap it with the hot water and put it on the right hand side, which I'm tempted to do as I'm right...
  15. Introductions
    Hello fellow coffee addicts, My first post on here. Ive spent the last couple of weeks exploring the forum for as much info as I can possibly gather and thought I should probably sign up and introduce myself! I've been a Nespresso user for the last 4 years or so (mainly due to convenience)...

    Hi everyone. I'm looking to upgrade. I had a Francis Francis x1, then Nespresso when we had twins for the ease. It's now time to get something decent. I was going to buy the sage barista express but I'm now tempted by the lelit anita. Any advice? My budget is around £500. I'd love a La Pavoni...
  17. Gaggia Forum
    A couple of weeks ago my Krups Novo 2300 died on me. I know its not the machine of choice, but when I got it 18 years ago I was very happy with it as a huge step up from just having a cafetiere and who fanatasied about being able to have a tasty espresso at home! After a very short period of...
  18. All Grinders & Hand-Grinders
    Looking for an upgrade from a MK Vario for espresso, ideally around £600 and happy with used. I get a bit lost reading grinder reviews because there's lots of text about ease of use, retention, speed, etc, but very little about grind quality - which I understand because it's harder to quantify...
  19. Coffee Accessories
    I've been gradually getting more and more into coffee over the past 3 years from when I bought my first espresso machine (delonghi dedica). I'm currently using a hario skerton as my grinder. I feel as though my current setup is giving little consistency and that I could get more out of my beans...
