Fellow Aiden anyone?

The beauty of the moccamaster is its simplicity. It will do the same thing for 20-30 years and parts will be available after that. It's for folks that want a decent cup of coffee with a flick of the switch practically their entire working life. There are plenty of options for more control out there and I'm eager

Help with spritzers- puck prep

How new is the grinder? 078s hasnt been out too long so if it is newer then it may still need some seasoning. Typically the signs of a youthful burr are inconsistent shots and some spurts

Rancilio Silvia - Green bits in the steam wand

Hello all; My Rancilio Silvia V1 wasn't steaming very well, so I took off the steam nozzle to clean it and found two small (head of a pin sized or a bit bigger) pieces of light green material inside.

The video in the last entry shows how the grind adjustment works. There is a lock at the zero marking (as well as the 145 marking), so it is impossible to make more than one turn on the adjustment wheel. I removed the collar to check for the chirp, and it was approximately at -3. After I changed
