Stolen off cfuk
Guys not happy.
just bought one, based in large part on the reviews you’re discussing (Kyle Rowsell and Brian Quan). Upgraded Obsidian burrset. Received it a few days ago. (AMA 🤷♂️)
Early days. Maybe it’s faulty. Maybe it’ll settle in. Maybe I’m doing something wrong.. But oof, my experience doesn’t seem to match at all what they’ve been saying on Youtube. Mine is really struggling and stalling even with supermarket medium roast, at moka pot, never mind espresso grind size.
The screeching and the slowness, I can live with, for the relatively lower price vs. other things I could’ve had. And I really like the minimalist design, and compact size. (Though you’re right about the white cable and insert, those really don’t match, but ok whatever.)
But it seems like for espresso, you have to feed it literally 2-3 beans at a time, or it jams and stalls 😳🤕
Assuming no actual defect, it seems odd. Just £5-10 more spent on the motor prob. could’ve made such a huge difference?
