    Just another two cents into the Acaia recommendations. I've had a pearl for 6ish years, and I really like it (Full disclosure, I didn't pay for it but was given it at an event I worked, I would defo buy a replacement if it died though!) I use it pretty much every day for brewing filter, baking and general kitchen use. I'm clumsy as hell, so I think it's done a killer job surviving this long! I don't use any of the app connectivity, so probably wasted on me. Do enjoy the timer though, it's much easier than digging my phone out and keeping the screen alive to show the timer. I have used it for weighing portafilters, and it's totally fine for that, I just find it's a bit slow to tare for my liking. But that's also usually making espresso at events or in a commercial situation, so not really home use! I'm used to ohaus scientific scales with the "no touchy" tare at work as well, so I'm defo ruined for all other scales!

    I've tried this one and it's pretty easy! My blender is terrible too, so even a lil grainy it still tasted great. As far as I remember I made it without the agar as I couldn't find any anywhere, and it still turned out good. A little definitely goes a long way.

    I've found it is super dependent on getting the right tonic. Can be good, can be real grim πŸ˜… but I'll drink iced filter all year, over most other drinks, so I'm the other end of the temp scale!

    Weird request, does anyone have any recommendations for Coventry? Ideally near the ice rink if possible...

    The cinnamon buns from made with plants are amazing πŸ’–

    I really like the odds, they're super friendly, and the pancakes are awesome. Also love the marmite cheese croissant!

    Preeetty sure these guys aren't around any more? Brown's do the coffee at Brockley Market on Saturday's now and have done for a while.

    Can confirm, it was very fun. Thanks to Caspar for giving me the opportunity to ride it! Watching Rob in chinos and a t-shirt casually pushing it just enough to beat Jim's time/speed was also a highlight πŸ˜‚
    I wasn't the fastest, but I did ride home with a bottle of champagne in each jersey pocket, so who was the real winner, really?
