LONDINIUM Espresso distribution tool now available

Reiss Gunson  |  News  | 24 May 2017

Get yours here

The LONDINIUM distribution tool will improve your current setup on a per dollar basis more than any other thing you can change/add to your espresso setup

Forget the convoluted, conflicting espresso advice that you have collected over time from multiple well-meaning sources, and welcome simplicity

Now you can grind into your portafilter, place the LONDINIUM distribution funnel on top of the basket (it is a perfectly snug fit so it wont fall off) and stir ten times in a clockwise direction then ten times in a counter clockwise direction with the LONDINIUM distribution tool.  Remove the LONDINIUM distribution funnel from the top of the basket

Tamp level.  Fit the portafilter to the group.  Pull the lever.  Allow 5-7 seconds pre-infusion and release the lever.  Prepare for your jjaw to drop as you see the improvement in your shot for the first time

You'll still get a dud shot now and then but the LONDINIUM distribution tool should allow you to pull a great shot four times out of five

LONDINIUM R production update

Reiss Gunson  |  News  | 23 May 2017

so, the good news is that having discussed the need to obtain more information from the manufacturer in order to provide you with some visibility of how orders are proceeding, i woke up to the following update:


Hi Reiss,
The new line is now in which has allowed me to move the next build before yours onto it. Your line will be clear by tue/wed of this week to allow your production to begin a few days earlier than planned. I would expect to start shipping daily, week commencing 05/06/17

Kind Regards


as you can see the bad news is we have slipped considerably from the original commencement date which was originally set down for the beginning of last week/end of the week before that

unfortunately that slippage was the result of the need to install the third production line, which as you can see from the production manager's email (above) is now installed and has machines being built upon it

as you can also read from the email above, the build of the current batch is about to start

it is also clear that for reasons i dont entirely understand yet that it is taking a lot longer for a batch to complete than it did for the old L1, which was 5 working days - i think this is a reflection of bottlenecks and associated backlogs in the testing area

anyway, that is the latest information and most complete veiw that i have



kind regards
