My offset settings stayed the same after updating, both -8. But the temperature behavior definitely changed and VA told me that would happen. Now I am waiting to get a Scace device. Till then trying to figure out by finding the boiling point. That lead me from -8 Offset to +5 so far, but still investigating.

Where are you getting the Scace from? I see it only here: https://www.espressoparts.com/products/ ... 3501372603 ... 300$ + 50$ shipping to EU + tax + customs

I asked VA for it as my machine still has warranty. They delivered it with several bugs and fixed them with an update that decalibrated it.

I reset all offsets to 0. Then I tried to measure the output stream in the single spout portafilter with a needle thermometer and the highest reading I could get was 85°C with boiler set to 93.5°.

Maybe the value was inverted? I'll try +4 instead of the original -4.

// with +4 offset and 93.5° setpoint I'm getting 89° in the spout

Unfortunately you cannot measure it like that, cause the conditions and flow in a closed Portafilter is much different. That is why there is a device like Scase. From an owner of a Scase calibrated E1P I was told that (without portafilter) the water starts to boil at the grouphead at 96 degree (you can hear it). According to that I set my machine Offset till I get Scase and it seems pretty close to me. Though others might say it should not boil under 99 degree celsius if you are not somewhere in the hills. But currently I have the feeling the 96 degree is closer to the truth. You could also try that. I suppose in your case +4 is much closer to the truth than -4.

Just received my E1p and getting to know how it functions... seems like a great design and built like a tank. My only problem so far is with the instruction manual, fairly limited information (anyone know of a source for more detail on its operation?).
One question I have is the "dose 1" and "dose 2" in the app... does that map to the buttons on the group head & which ones (1 & 3)? Is the middle button on the group always a manual on/off button for pulling shots?
Thanks!

Yes dose 1 is left, dose 2 right, and middle button is manual

For anyone interested, these are my offsets, set with a scace.
