Very poor experience with Decent customer service over defective Simple Scale

As of today, these postal fees I referred to no longer apply, because cheap airmail postal services have been restored after a two year hiatus. More info: "Low cost & free shipping from Decent, comes back to US, AU, NZ, FR, CA."

Bottomless versus double spout portafilter

Very poor experience with Decent customer service over defective Simple Scale

Just noticed this thread has been unlocked - I guess that means it's time for me to complete "step 6" of my rehab program for posting outside the HB guidelines John & I have been in contact directly via the Decent customer service channels, so I won't comment directly to him here - aside from a

Green Coffee Exchange

Surprise. 28 Yemeni auction samples got dropped on my porch this morning, one week early from Oman>Leipzig>Cincinnati>Minneapolis>St Paul. Love the logos.

Are there flat manual grinders?

I don't understand, the grinder in that thread is an electric flat burr grinder, not a manual flat burr grinder? Or were you just linking evidence of the fact that this topic has been discussed by someone at some point before?

Roast dates on bags

Anaerobic natural coffees

Chert I had tried once roasting 100gr on the Huky but got a lot of variability on my BT I figured due to poor probe coverage. Have you had that issue?

How good is 1Zpresso alignment?
