Rocket Appartamento - Possible Pump Issue

I only grind with the Kinu and weigh my coffee before and after (scale is accurate to 0,01 grams). The pump sounds the same when in brew mode and when back flushing. The machine is also only just over two years old. I will buy a group head pressure gauge, but my suspicion is that the factory setting was way...

Fascimile Coffees (live cuppings) with Ryan Brown/Scott Rao

Ah ok thanks. I missed that. I thought it was just the usual cupping instructions. Shame. I'll just have to make sure I enjoy what's left of this month's and take care roasting the samples I have left.

Rocket Appartamento - Possible Pump Issue

Fascimile Coffees (live cuppings) with Ryan Brown/Scott Rao

I saw on line they were not accepting new subscriptions. Are you saying the whole thing is closing for existing subscribers too? If so it's a real shame, I really enjoyed it. I was sad to see BH superlatives go too due to logistics. I also drank most of it through brewing and was just getting into the cupping process.
