Quick Mill Vetrano 2B & Profitec 700 -- same knob thread??

{image} Yes. The Vetrano's holes are closer together, but the threads and sizes of the tips are the same. Both have the inner o-ring for the burn-free tubing

Plumb in kit for La Marzocco Linea Micra

Nope. My guess is they are dealing with supply chain constraints to get a custom gooseneck on the supply hose, because everything else needed to plumb the machine is readily available from the existing LM parts catalogue

La Marzocco GS3 Plumb-in Advice

I'm using RO with a remin cartridge (iSpring brand remin) for filling my reservoir. The remin water is "fine" but I like a little more buffer in my water since I drink a lot of light roasts.

Looking for a little help with my recent (1 year) horrible coffee

Huky Roast and Learn ... Prisoner exchange edition

Posting this here rather than PM since more eyeballs is better for this question: Does anybody have a suggestion for best shipping option for 50-100 grams? Ziplock in a padded envelope by USPS? I hear USPS is best for small boxes and padded envelopes but happy to be corrected if that's not the case

Tossing my hat into the ring of DIY Cafelat Robot Gauge Brackets

The factory-supplied gauge bracket faces my gut when pulling a shot, so it is relatively useless. I am aware of gauge brackets by these individuals/companies that all aim to mount the gauge near the top of the machine:

    Disillusioned with "precision" baskets (a bit of a rant)

    Since I don't have a microscope in my house to tell me what basket to pick, I simply go by taste
