Best upgrade for Mazzer Mini doser

Or, you sell the mini, and buy a Major, mod it to lose the doser and hopper and add some SSP burrs and be happy for the rest of your life... A used Major should not set you back by more than an additional 150 or so, these things are built like tanks and if the ball bearings are not

Pasquini livia 90 s drip tray

I am in the process of buying a used pasquini livia 90 s without a drip tray. Looking for a replacement. Pasqunin.com don't have it, and 1st line don't have it neither. Didn't find a 3D printed one neither. Anybody have one for sale or know where to buy one? Thanks

Cafelat Robot day 1 issues - Help needed

It's pretty unlikely that you will break your Robot. I've had mine to 11 bar one time just to get there. It's pretty strenuous even to pull 9bar. You need to be applying 55-60lbs of force.

La Pavoni Pro - Channeling Help

Not to derail the thread but you should try hatch crafted in Markham. I pick up a bag from them when I visit some family members. They have some good SO offerings. That said I haven't tried pilot, but have looked at their offerings

Want to upgrade my Timemore C2

Thank you so much for your feedback! Hard to decide, I have the money but not a proper answer. I love balanced cups and/or good sweetness, and that's why I'm towards Comandante or KMax or the Q2 Hepta. Because I'm not into the Espresso hobby I don't need espresso functionalities.
