Rancilio Silvia -> Profitec Pro 300 -> ?

It sounds like you're happy with the 300 except for steaming, have you looked at trying to improve its capability? Easiest would be to adjust the pressurestat to get higher pressure, or swapping steam wand tips. You'll still be limited in how long you can keep steam going with a smaller boiler, but you may be able to make it...

Also, sometimes single baskets are tricky because of the angled sides - do you have a double basket you could try an appropriate dose in?...

E61 brew valve: indentations or no indentations?

I don't know why they're there, maybe they have some purpose in the machining process, maybe they're a measuring mark on the brass square rod from which the part is machined by some suppliers. Once in the machine, that mark is completely hidden down in the...
