I'm contemplating of replacing the 0.8 mm gicleur with a 0.6 mm. However, I'm a little confused. Keno in his blog mentioned the L087/GI/6. When i do a google search I see two different versions, the one he shows in the blog and the ruby gicleur. Which one is better? Do both fit the Linea Mini?

I just received an email from La Marzocco's parts department that the L087/GI/6 was replaced with A.5.108.

Do you have a link to the new part? I can't seem to find it.

The Espresso Parts one you linked to is the one I've used and it works well. As long as your water is good, you shouldn't have trouble.

No link, the part number came from La Marzocco. I ended up ordering it directly from La Marzocco as they confirmed that it works on Linea Mini.

I received the new part yesterday and replaced the gicleur last night. The old gicleur was very tight in, but with the correct tools it comes out. After replacement, the flowrate dropped to about 290g/30 seconds. The shots look better, more forgiving.
