Artisan 1.4 on the way

Thanks very much, this worked, but the results look a bit different from the plot in Artisan. Can you give an example of how you typically use this calculation?

Disadvantages of a Spring Lever Espresso Machine

Thanks. That is a great site. Intrestingly, some of the machines that are levers in that wiki, turn up as volumetric in the US market. It continues to re-enforce my choice of the Profitec Pro 800. To me it seems the best spring lever for the price. The other is the Londium, but I don't care to deal with importing it.

Disadvantages of a Spring Lever Espresso Machine

In a commercial environment, I can understand using a volumetric machine as it allows the output to be adjusted and to be consistent between shots. But other than that, I don't see why more shops don't have lever machines.

Talk me out of an espresso machine upgrade

Buy a Monolith....Everyone else is. Seriously though, that may be the road to take, upgrading your grinder. Although, the one you have is pretty good.

Talk me out of an espresso machine upgrade

I would love to have your setup:) I am of the opinion that the 500 can do ever bit as good espresso but takes a bit more effort Go for a grinder upgrade if you really have the itch otherwise enjoy the already plenty capable equipment you already own Randy
