New Eureka Mignon Single Dose Grinder

It's gotta be either: 1. Not pumping the bellows properly (sure, Eureka may need to give more clear instruction) or 2. Too much air leak in the hopper system Note that once it gets clogged badly enough, simply fixing #1 and #2 may not remove the existing clog. You may need to vacuum/brush out the clog in the

The Picopresso

My shower screen doesn't have this kind of circle. I think the circle is an improvement, because my puck often has a dent in the middle. The IMS shower screen of my big espresso machine also has no holes in the center, I think this improves distibution. I also ordered a puck screen for my picopresso and hope for an

Upgradeitus - Mod La Spaziale Vivaldi II, or a new machine?

It's a slippery slope. I've only had the flow control device on my machine for a couple of weeks. It's fun to tinker and see what changes in the cup messing with the profile can do. But now I'm thinking what's next? It's fun and all, but the level of control you get manually turning a dial is just so

Ikawa Home thermal performance

Again, extremely relevant research. Have you tried with beans in it? That would also be very interesting. I also dont think that fan-speed will impact the flavor (At least not my palette) - But it may be relevant if you are roasting peaberries and they are pushed into the chaff container during the roasting process - Otherwis I dont see

Ikawa Home thermal performance

About that fan... In the following experiment I step the fan speed between 80% to 60% while holding the temperature steady. This will test the Ikawa's ability to hold temperature despite changes in airflow. {image} The app doesn't allow enough fan setpoints to pulse the fan speed both up and down in a single recipe, so

La Marzocco GS3 AV - Coffee Pressure Question

Hi folks, I have a GS3 AV. I haven't paid attention to it for a long time, but I just noticed that the pressure continues to rise above 9 bar (about 12 bar to be exact) during extraction (with coffee). When empty, however, at free flow the pressure remains at 9 bar. If I adjust the
