  1. Eureka Grinders
    After owning a well trusted, Rancillio Rocky for a number of years, I'm thinking of replacing and upgrading it with a Eureka Mignon XL65! Can anyone advise if this would be a considerable improvement for the substantial extra expense. Any contributions much appreciated. Richard

    I am currently using a Rancillio Rocky (non-doser) which I've had over twelve years now. Excellent machine, faithful and reliable, over the years, but I'm now prepared that it won't last forever. Can anyone vouch for the 'Specialita' as a possible replacement / upgrade? Thanks folks.

    Currently I have a PID modded gagia classic and a baratza preciso. After spending a lot of time and effort sorting out a doge 63 grinder (see this thread for details) I just cant get it past the kitchen police long enough to even give it a proper try out. Not sure if i should be looking to...

    Hi all, Hoping you can help - I have recently purchased a Atom 60E off a forum member (thanks Stuart!), and now need to get to grips with dialling it in - not using it as a single doser as flat burrs aren't the most forgiving for retention. So I find myself now having had it a day struggling to...

    Hi all, I am a beginner and have my eyes set on a GC. What do you think of this edition by James Adams sold by gaggia direct UK? Do you think the 'unusual' colour will affect the resale value if I want an upgrade? See link below...

    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...

    Hi Guys, do I buy new Sage smart, Baratza virtuosa for example or go for something second hand like mazzer mini E, super jolly etc. I'm quite happy to buy second hand, but obviously that would be more risky as I know nothing about grinders. Also what kind of price would I be looking at for a...

    Hi I am looking to upgrade my Sage machine that has just died (only 3 years old). The Lelit Mara 62 Delux has been highly recommended on bellabarista, looks a great machine in a small footprint. Anyone else have one and recommend it or an alternative for a similar price? £1000 is my limit. Can...

    Hello, As I'm looking at buying an espresso machine for Home in the next couple of months I wondered what opinions were prevalent re grinders currently available. I currently own two MBK handgrinders... a Feldgrind for home (used for V60 and Aeropress) and an Aergrind for work (used for...

    Hi All Newbie here - have been Gaggia Classicing for years with a Krups Grinder (ignorance is bliss...!) and only recently discovered this fab forum. Temp surfing is great when it works, but now that I've tasted better coffee I decided I need to upgrade or replace. So I'm thinking a MrShades...

    I have a KitchenAid Artisan grinder which I bought from a friend a couple of years ago. The burrs look and feel worn so I'm considering replacing them with Mazzer burrs, but without the conversion kit being available anymore this looks to be more trouble than it's worth to modify the grinder and...

    Hello, What is the best deal on this site, because they can ship it to my country more easily and they have some good deals on package machines. https://qavashop.com/en/3-espresso-machines/s-3/price-2205:5175 I limited the price to be like $1200 max.

    Hello, Having done much research, I'm planning to purchase the Londinium r in the near future. My budget for the grinder to pair with it is approaching £1000. I'm happy to purchase second hand or brand new but I am struggling to get to grips with the grinder research as there just seems so...

    I have just bought an Aeropress to try, looking forward to that! I will be using it mainly in the office. I would like also to get a burr grinder that will be optimal for Aeropress and also the Cafetiere. Would the grind size for both Aeropress & the Cafetiere be roughtly the same? Keen to learn.

    Hi All, Hoping for some advice with a new grinder for the home setup. Currently have Compak K6 for espresso with my Gaggia Classic, but she's a little on the larger size* and I'm keen to reclaim some space in the kitchen. I'm looking for a grinder with a smaller footprint and can fit under my...

    Hi everyone, I'm a newbie so please bear with me . We bought a gaggia classic on eBay last week, and long story short, it's pulling shots way too fast and the seller thinks the solenoid valve for damaged in transit. We're now in a situation where he'll get it fixed or give us a refund. We're...
