What are the drip tray dimensions? I'm wondering if my current scale would fit on the drip tray...

I just read IamOiman's interesting review comparing the Micra to two of his classic spring lever machines. But one comment left me wondering:
IamOiman wrote:The Micra stands out because its body is very comparable to the levers, and in fact there was a ton of deflation from the Micra shot (part of it is due to the Saka roast being less than 2 weeks post roast date and is still degassing just a bit). I did not expect this result in testing.
What does deflation mean in this context?

Thanks.

I have a question regarding the built-in water reservoir size. LM have two different stats listed-2L in the "rolling features" description of the Micra, and 1.6L when you click on "compare machines". Which is correct? How does that translate in terms of how long you can go between refills?

I'm very happy with my Mini, but as we're doing a kitchen remodel (and our kitchen is quite small), I would consider selling the Mini if I gain more room and don't lose anything :).

Since you're redoing the kitchen, is there a possibility to take the opportunity to plumb?

It's 1.6 liters, if that. I got used to filling it every morning. This wasn't necessary, but it seemed to suit the machine. The water tray is very accessible from the front. BUT, it is a pain to fill with a normal 2 liter water pitcher, and much easier with a pint sized cup.
