Inconsistent shot times on Ceado E6P?

Thanks for the reply guys. Just a note, I was purging for about 3-4 secs every morning before I pull my first shot. I also purge 3-4 secs when changing grind settings.

Coffee roasting machine - Help needed

Hey Barista fam! While I have most of you here, with some wonderful suggestions, may I go as far as to ask you all to recommend me some roasters that use electricity as source of energy and are semi-automatic or automatic in its operational nature?

Rancilio Silvia spitting out some black specks

With the cleaning, etc. you're doing I'd use it if all appears to be fine. As long as you have good flow rate from the group, steam wand and of course during an extraction I'd call it good.
