Interested to see how this has changed in v1.1. Thanks!

What does a soupy puck portend about shot quality? Does it harm taste in the cup? My intuition tells me it wouldn't harm a thing. Or is it mostly just an aesthetic irritant?
Going all the way back to page one of this thread, it's interesting that the group head heater is 100W, just like the group head heater in the Breville Dual Boiler. Ever since the BDB came out with that feature in 2011, I have wondered about the power of it, and whether there was any point or value in having one more powerful than 100W. I consider it encouraging that Decent also uses a 100W final heater. Makes me wonder in what other ways the water temp control algorithms are similar. If you were wanting say, 200degF brew temperature, what would the water temp be just before it hits the group heater? IOW, how many degF does the group heater add? Does the DE sensor suite tell us that? Or is that DE Pro territory?
