Boiler and Coffee Cup Heaters on Monza 5010 not heating

Thanks for the info John. Somebody told me that the numbers 1 through 6 on the touchpad diagram in Chris' Coffee Service Owner's manual represent the numbers for the password.

$1500ish budget for new or used semiautomatic

Looking for a nice home setup semi auto machine for brewing a couple shots each morning. Only must have is that it needs to have a water reservoir/can't be plumbed in.

OE Lido 1 - Help!

It's just a jar. A particular size with a lid that has a certain threading. I bought a compatible jar for my LIDO 1 as a backup in case I broke the original. I don't have the details at hand and I'm traveling. But since you need to replace the lid too I think that gives you some leeway in

Popular Knock Box?

On mine you have to use the center of the basket because if you tried to use the neck, about 1/4 to 1/3 of the puck would be over the outer edge of the tub. I still don't know why I'm not having grinds fly all over my kitchen but so far (knock on ... well the knock box!!)

SSP Lab Sweet 64mm

im on the opinion that these crushing burrs on the cv needs slight deburring and smoothening, hence the need for long break in. once done there will be less fines and more even grind particles, hence better cups without the bitter aftertaste. perhaps anyone who tested before and after break in can comment. i didnt do the 2kg coffee

Filter Grinder + 64mm SSP Burrs

hi, just adding personal opinion here. personally i think brew method matters for each burrs, with ssp being an anomaly. i have c2, 1z, arco, df64 stock, ssp mp, and ssp cv red. arco and stock italmill are same profile, call it espresso burr if u wish. 1z and ssp cv is another profile, mp as many

The Picopresso

Yes, the top surface of the IMS basket is even. In the meanwhile I got some 52mm inner diameter seal rings and that seems to fix my issue. Each ring is just 1.8mm thick, so I added 2 just to be sure, but apparently it pushed the basket up just enough to seal properly. These rings are just
