Need help guys. I recently changed to an acaia dosing cup, while it works well and fits snug under the ode, but when grinding I see hint of blue spark every 1-2 secs between the outer rim of the cup and the plastic grinding chute area. Will this be hazardess?

What should I do with the BDB if my house is changing to soft water?

I would suggest retesting the water after the change over and downloading the manual. You might not have to do anything but consult your manual first

What should I do with the BDB if my house is changing to soft water?

I vaguely remember that when I first setup my BDB I had to test the hardness of the water and set some thing in the machine. I followed the instructions back then. But now my house is switching to soft water. Does anyone have the instruction for what I should do? Should I still use filter?

You'll probably have better odds with the Lambro or another Faema - or a Gaggia. I don't know if Conti's were ever sold in Canada. Faemas were by far the most popular machine in the GTA as far as I know. I kept a regular look out for a Faema Velox for years, but once I had the

Saka Caffè in the States

Yeah, 16 days is great. I've had 20 day old Saka arrive on my doorstep. To be fair you were claiming 7-10 days, not 16. It's not impossible to get 7 day old coffee from Italy via Cantina but kind of unlikely. The bag I'm drinking right now arrived 42 days post roast. By the way, those

Good to know - I'm just west and going to start the search for a Lambro or Prestina in earnest soon. I've seen a few two group Arduino's but they're too big for my small house
