  1. Brewed Coffee
    I've posted a chart of grind sizes & recipes on my google page. I wouldn't try and print it...seems to be 1200 odd pages, a symptom of being imported from an old XL. I'll add more methods & brew sizes as time goes on. Brewers are listed in alphabetical order, scroll down to see them all. All...
  2. Mazzer Grinders
    So I've just picked my new, to me, Super Jolly from Mr Latte - thanks very much by the way - but have already hit a problem. Up until now I have been using pre-ground coffee, Illy mainly, with the pressurised filter basket in my Gaggia Classic. Now that I can grind I have moved to using the...

    Only recently discovered these things existed, which one do you guys use?
  4. Sage Forum
    Evening, I've been practicing with some Co-op beans and trying to get a good ratio/pull time on my DTP. Good beans are arriving tomorrow but thought I'd get used to the whole process with these ones first. Grinding 17g into the pf straight from the SGP. I don't have a funnel and therefore...
  5. Brewed Coffee
    Hey all, Im about to invest in a grinder, What grind should i be aiming for for an Aeropress using the standard paper filters? For example 1-10 (1 being espresso fine, 10 really large grind) Thank you in advance,

    Hi I'm using a DTP and newly acquired Smart Grinder Pro. I dialled in initially with Coffee Compass Mystery beans (about 25 days since roast) and got great consistency and extraction with the grinder on setting 11. Today I changed to HCR Workhorse (12 days old) using same variables but it...
  7. Coffee Beans
    Assumed is that we have fresh beans with same age and we want the same output from every beans I noticed that all beans (different sorts and mixes) from one roast house needed a much finer grind than that from another! Is that saying anything about the quality of the roast house? And if yes...

    Hello folks, Quick question - when I remove the portafilter having poured a shot on my Gaggia Gran Prestige, there's a lot of pressurised hot water which spurts out as I release it from the machine, which causes coffee grind and water to spurt all over the machine and surrounding areas. I'm...
  9. Sold
    I am selling my Mahlkonig K30 since my Niche has arrived and sadly I am unable to keep both. I do still feel I could use this for parties we have but my wife isn't letting me entertain the idea sadly. I am including BOTH the tall and short hoppers, as well as some secret goodies for it's new...
  10. Rancilio Forum
    After quite a few months of learning to pour a decent shot on my Silvia matched with a Sage grinder pro im having problems with getting a decent decaf shot. I recently bought an 18g VST basket which has massively improved my shots with normal coffee as im able to dose more coffee so my ratios...
  11. Coffee Beans
    I normally buy my beans from Two local roasters in rotation, method and James Gourmet, last week i decided to try another one that is localish, black mountain roasters. I ran out of beans before they delivered, they seemed to take a bit longer than the others. Anyway I got some supermarket...
  12. All Grinders & Hand-Grinders
    Hi guys, Looking very likely that I'll be pulling the trigger on a Sage DTP for £234 with 3 yrs warranty in the next couple of days. The issue I have is grinding. I currently have a Wilfa Svart for making French, v60, aeropress and Turkish coffee but espresso is my favourite method of getting...

    Handy blog from Square Mile about grind size/settings on the Wilfa Svart. http://www.squaremileblog.com/2018/06/26/wilfa-grind-size-guide/

    Hey, I'm looking around for a hand grinder under £60, I do eventually want to get a Aergrind, Lido or something of that sort but don't have the budget for it right now. Looking for something decent until I do, not expecting incredible results. I usually make coffee with an aeropress or v60...

    I'm posting this here, as my other thread in the Eureka area is a little dead! (https://coffeeforums.co.uk/showthread.php?43057-Burrs-touching-to-get-a-fine-enough-grind) If you've been following - I've discovered that my Mignon II's burrs don't seem to be parallel. I'm getting a chirp when...
  16. Coffee Beans
    Okay, i'm starting to notice a theme here. I struggle to dial in La Cabra beans. Two different machines, two different grinders, same result. (Professional Gaggia 2 group & grinder, as well as the Nuova Simonelli Oscar II & Eureka Mignon) I'm coming across this strange phenomenon where I'm able...

    I just got a well used Mazzer Mini which had been in storage for a while. I gave it a general clean including the burrs, but when I put it back together again it isn't grinding fine enough. If I turn the wheel towards finer, there comes a point where the beans don't go down into the burrs at...

    Does grind quality really a make difference in bring out flavours/taste of beans profile? more in terms of filter brewing and might sound a bit a daft question. I recently sold my Hausgrind and reverted to the Hario Mini Mill but can't quite tell if it a better brew or not. Apart the speed of...
  19. Coffee Beans
    hi all as per title, any one tried this? only comes in 1kg bags so wanted some opinions before i order. http://grind.co.uk/shop/grind-coffee-1kg-bag thanks!

    So, took my Aergrind apart today and layed it out, it unsurprisingly works in essentially the same way as the Feldgrind. You dont actually need to fully disassemble the grinder to remove the burr assembly. You can just keep winding the settings coarser until the grind setting collar (2)...
