    SOLD For sale is a custom painted La Marzocco Linea Mini in gun metal blue with a white Lux D grinder. I won the setup in 2018 and to be honest since I'm a filter person I've used it less than a dozen times. I've always used bottled water so both inside and out they're in excellent condition...

    Hi everyone, this is an awesome community... wish I found you sooner! I've been snowballing more into coffee over the last 5 years or so. Just upgraded to a Bianca, and love it!! What can I say? Pre-covid, my hobby was roaming around London to check out different coffee shops. If I had a...

    Hello forum! This is my first time posting after reading for a little while. I am opening a new cafe/bakery in London in the next month or two, and have just received a great secondhand La Spaziale S5 compact with 2 group heads. While I'm not entirely certain how the previous owner treated...

    Hi all, good to be here. I'm a coffee roaster helping with a new roastery called Brew Coffee Plus in Streatham, South London currently. Started as a barista years ago so nice to be moving forwards in coffee. We are planning to do some experience days / courses / serve coffee on weekends at some...
  5. Find a Coffeeshop
    As the title says really. I know it's a bit of long shot, but we're going to the Munch exhibition at The British Museum and was hoping to have a stop off somewhere between there and The Hawksmoor at Seven Dials.

    So I'm maybe the outlier here: I live in Berlin but I spent a couple of years in London some years ago. Now I'll be back in London April 20 & 21st for a wedding but I have a whole day with nothing to do so I'm looking into doing a workshop or just visiting some coffee shops. Any recommendations?
  7. Coffee Lounge
    I had planned on attending the Brighton festival so had ignored all the run up early bird codes etc for London. My other half has kindly decided to buy tickets for an England warm up at Twickenham on the day of Brighton so I now want to go to London. Have never done any of the coffee festivals...
  8. Find a Coffeeshop
    More on the edge of Covent Garden but what a find. Ordered a flat white under house blend espresso - dark tasting flat white with a hint of plum (sweet and not the normal sour taste). They also have a range of coffees you can take away - I was that impressed by the espresso blend I ordered 400g...

    Hi:p Over the years I've had a bunch of electric machines (such as Krupp's Nova 2000 and other point and shoot automatics) but always carried a S/S stove top throughout those years. Grinding was always by hand as I never got round to researching it. Then a friend got the bug seriously and...

    Hi Everyone, At the moment I'm considering getting a KVDW Speedster for home use, after being enamoured with the Spirits they have in coffeeshops. 1) Is there anywhere around London that one could go and try out the Speedster or have the coffee from it? 2) I was thinking of matching it up...
  11. Find a Coffeeshop
    Mrs D is off to see an Orla Kiely exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum. So I am going to pop for a coffee or two to while away the hour or so that'll take before we meander to Matlby Street Market and then onwards to Brick Lane/Petticoat Lane......... Any specific suggestions...
  12. Coffee Lounge
    Hi. I'm looking to do a home barista course at one of the London roasteries and wondered if anyone had done any and could make a recommendation. I'm looking at a course at Nude Espresso in Shoreditch at the moment. I actually live near High Wycombe so if anyone knows of any courses near there...

    I'm looking for advice on water treatment - I know the subject has been done to death, but I also know that there must be several forum members who have very similar circumstances and I'm interested in what has worked well for you. I'm about to have a kitchen extension done and would like to...
  14. Coffee Lounge
    I am considering a trip down to London, maybe a day trip, maybe a weekend. I want to do a bit of a pointless coffee tour, drink some great coffee and see a bit of the city. Any suggestions for cafes or coffee related venues that are worth a visit?
  15. Coffee Lounge
    I'm curious as to where people think is the most exciting city/area for coffee. Berlin seems really interesting and packed full of roasters/cafes and I'm really keen to go, but there's plenty of other fantastic roasters and cafes around the world. I thought Dublin was really cool, and I always...
  16. Sold
    I have NO 211 EK43 LE. It's a home use grinder so hardly used. Owned it for about a year and a half. Sincet its not my only grinder I estimate max 20KG went through the grinder. My coffee routine is only on the weekends (I know I am crazy!) Regular cleaning of the burrs. The grinder is...
  17. Misc
    I am in London on Saturday. Is there anywhere to view a range of grinders in the flesh? I am not planning to upgrade next year so am willing to invest straight off - budget is flexible for something special, but definitely sub £1000. Bella Barista is a bit far from Brighton (and no-one seems to...

    Gaggia Classic in great condition for sale. 2006 model pre-philips i.e. larger solenoid / higher wattage Usual mods done (OPV adjusted, rancillio Silvia steam arm installed with a twist!) I found the Rancilio steam tip itself was still not good enough for microfoam so I fit an additional...
  20. Coffee Lounge
    Hi, I'm looking for places in W8 London or central, even east if needed that have espresso made with the EK43, I've been reading/hearing tons about it and how different it is but I'd like to try it myself! Also, any recommendations on good cafes that put tons of emphasis on their espresso? I'm...
