SSP 98mm "Brewing" Burrs

Decent Espresso news

{image} Buckman article in "The Lever" Magazine I wasn't aware of The Lever Magazine before Claudio and Simone, the editors, approached me. I took the opportunity to read, cover-to-cover, the 3 previous issues, and I was floored at how similar their view of espresso was to Decent's.

SSP 98mm "Brewing" Burrs

Hello Chencheh, are you by any chance using the brew burrs in P100 from titus?

Wondering have you noticed any problem with ground retention? Thank you.

Breville Dual Boiler Mods and Maintenance

At the very least, replace all the small o-rings on the PTFE tubing in the boiler side. All the ones on top of the steam boiler(including the brew HX lines), the fill line on the side of the boiler and the ones on the steam valve and after the steam valve. If you have the larger o-rings for the sensor...
