Is a Bottom Paper Filter Useful?

Yes those mesh reusable. After watching some videos sounds like it is in fact more effort than needed and adds more work without a full reward. The only thought would be to eliminate the need for cutting which is a pain. Imagine if I got a hole puncher it still wouldn't work given the aero press papers

Niche Zero Upgrades

I don't know if changing burrs is going to solve your problem, I guess it depends on where the remainder is catching. Maybe these are unrelated.

54mm Tamper and Distribution Tool

Hello, I have a Niche Zero. Just pulled trigger on a Vesuviana Leva that comes with a 54mm portafilter. Did some research on the tamper and distribution tool and found the WTD is definitely the way to go. With transitional WTD tool, it seems that I need a Funnel.

Is a Bottom Paper Filter Useful?

La Marzocco Linea Micra owner reviews

Breville Dual Boiler Steam actuator parts

Hello, been a happy BDB user for years and have replaced many o rings and a solenoid or two. It looks like I need to replace the steam actuator assembly, or maybe just the PTFE rings near the ball, but I can't find any place that sells them. Since it looks like the BDB is being discontinued, does anyone know
