That also aligns with the tastes you are describing. It sounds like the mini/atom is extracting higher as you say everything is more "balanced" which could also be trending toward muddiness that could occur in higher extraction.
The "fruity" you are describing typically comes from lower extraction at the expense of some sweetness and balance. Also, probably ( I say probably because I don't own your past or current gear) your mini favored lower extractions to taste better as compared to your 75MM burrs in the atom. You could also play with you ratio as higher quality grinders can do better with longer shots and still keep the strength and extraction up.

I was trying for the same timing on the LMLM, but I'll play around with trying some longer pulls to see how it reacts. I've tried to keep the brew temperature about the same.

The PID on the Silvia is all based on an offset which you have to set, so it's kinda of up in air what actual puck temp is. So it's possible your temps are different between the two machines? The mini should be set at factory, but when my mini arrived I was getting really harsh flavors. Turns out the temp sticker wasn't attached properly and it was WAY too high. Like 8 degrees... I used a Javalin to get it close enough at first just measuring at the screen, and eventually bought a SCACE to get it dead on. It's an odd thing to have happened... but the machine is absolutely dead on in temp on every pull so I looked past it
RyanJE wrote:By longer I meant more water, not more time. In fact, you need less time to move back toward fruity. First start with a faster flowing shot so 20-25.
Also, you should switch to focusing on your brews by weight rather than ounces.
