Oro XL clogging

I was digging my Oro XL until it locked up, I took it apart, and found the entire chute clogged with grounds. Looks like this is a common problem with Mignon-type grinders, with many removing the clump crusher or using bellows. I cleaned it up and hope this instance was a result of user error while I was dialing in

How to solve channeling when it is specific to the type of bean?

Hi, I've been pulling shots with my Cafelat Robot and Kinu M47 for over a year now. I also use the NDT and tamper tools from Orphan's Espresso and often get good or even excellent results. I've recently got a bag of Verve Coffee Kamuyu AA. It is a light roast and no matter how I do NDT and tamper

Two new coffees: Guatemalan light AND non-Robustica blend

Do you have a PID on that? I have one for sale from Auber specifically for this machine. You could raise the temperature up for those lighter roasts. You helped me determine that I didn't have an OPV on mine, so I sold it in an OEM stock, no mods where sold

How to Increase Sweetness with Cafelat Robot

Hi, After many sub-optimal shots with Medium and Dark Roasts I finally figured out that a long pre-infusion (30 seconds) made the cup a lot clearer and reduced this harshness I was getting (probably a mix of under and over extraction due to channeling).

La Marzocco Linea Mini User Experience

Hi folks, Long time lurker here and I've learned a lot from everyone in this community. Just a qq about adjusting the brew pressure. I just upgraded to a 2022 LMLM last month coming from a BBP then an ECM Mech V. I've already done the gliceur mod and tested with 9 bars for a few weeks, so

[PROMO] LeverCraft Ultra Grinder

Just send a msg to Zhang asking what the current draw is at idle and if the lower burr carrier issue has been resolved. 240v isn't an issue in my kitchen so I'm thinking about ordering from this batch for July delivery
