Best Grinder for both Espresso and Filter

Hi all, So in my household I tend to drink Espresso, and my Girlfriend tends to drink Filter. Currently we have 2 grinders - Rancilio Rocky for Espresso and just an old Krupps one for the Filter. My question is - I am wanting to potentially buy the Niche Zero, but I would like this to be

La Pavoni Millenium boiler is slowly rotating

I had a bad feeling about this. I was trying to avoid replacing the boiler gaskets because I don't have the proper tool (yet). Nor do I have a jig to hold the unit upside down on the bench vise while I unscrew whatever that special tool unscrews. Just a question, though: When I do the semi-annual rebuild

Rancilio Epoca S1 steam boiler pressure

He's correct in that "If you have the "Transductor kit" instead of a P-Stat, there's probably no point in descaling it unless you actually see scale blocking the inlet.

Best upgrade for Mazzer Mini doser

-I have a Mazzer Mini with a doser. -The Mazzer Mini is a decent single dose grinder from my experience. -It depends on the coffee and the dose. -With medium to dark roasts, its fine. -If you are grinding for a dose above 14-15 grams, its fine. -It will NOT do well if your single dose is below 10 grams

Espresso roaster

Hi, I'm soon arriving to the US and would like to try a local espresso roast. Its been hard to understand from most roasters I've looked online since most seem to be geared toward drip coffee. I would like to get some recommendations for roasters who roast specifically for espresso and provide shipping across the US. I'll be
