Upscale Home Based Lever Machines

I'm not sure if this machine was mentioned. The Nurri Leva sa. is built for commercial use but has interesting options that would make it an exceptional device for the home barista if there were the space. And would have the ability to produce 100 espressos with ease each day with its mult-boiler PID system

Comments on La Marzocco Linea Micra Espresso Machine Review

I just read IamOiman's interesting review comparing the Micra to two of his classic spring lever machines. But "one comment" left me wondering: What does deflation mean in this context? Thanks

The Timemore Nano scale seems to be a great choice for my La Pavoni pre Mil... Am I correct?

Thanks ... checks all the boxes and looks to be perfect for a starter like me. Small enough to fit under a cup and bottomless portafilter (5.67 x 3.03 x 0.67 inches), looks accurate and fast enough to get repeatable weights, and cheap enough to replace if it breaks or something new comes along worthy of the investment

Pitchers smaller than 12 oz?

The Mota 8.5 is about perfect for the 4ish ounces I steam for my 6 ounce cups. I also found a random 6.5 ounce that I use for 2 to 3 ounce portions. It is much more difficult to use than the Mota

And there are people that can stop their extraction within .01 of a gram on a repeated basis? That's way more skill than I have

ECM Puristika owner experience

I am a proud owner of a new Puristika equipped with the coffee sensor flow control kit ! {image} I haven't installed the lower "harder" spring since manual says it's optional, as well as many users in another thread. Should I do it ? I mostly brew light roasts and haven't started to play with flow control
