Purchased a Gaggia Classic off of exactlythat's recommendation last week and am incredibly impressed with it. Never thought I'd be a coffee-wanker but I think I'm starting to become one…

Could anyone recommend a mechanical dosage burr gridner £100-£150. Was looking at some of the Sage ones, but would prefer any recommendations. Thanks.

Just inherited a machine that takes the nespresso capsules. Any decent alternative capsules that will fit out there to try?

Dark arts do capsules now. I'm a little bit of a coffee snob but do have a nespresso machine for when I can't be fucked with Aeropress. Best advice is to run two rounds of hot water through it before every time you use it i.e. run it dry without the pod 2 x. My main criticism of those machines as that coffee residue builds up and has stale coffee taste but since doing the above I haven't had that.

It’s the thing in the kitchen I never knew I needed. Been doing iced coffees with it and adding bit of praline syrup with no fat milk, and great for the little pods. Might be an intro to a better machine, but it’s getting good use.
