Olympia Coffee - Big Truck vs Little Buddy

Okay, I didn't realize that. Now I do, and again--I should have been more observant of the notes. Personally the only time I want bergamot in something is in my perfume, never limoncello (too lemony/citrusy) and never floral

NS Oscar Needs water

Greetings. Thank you for all the knowledge you've contributed regarding this topic, however, I'm still at lost why this machine is not working like it should. I suppose the water level sensor is like the secondary switch that if it's not working properly, the boiler does not heat up, as this does. It can release water from the brew

Londinium R24 vs. Nurri Leva vs. ACS Vesuvius Evo Leva

Not quite R24 sorry to hijack thread. anyone here using Londinium Compressa? -Trying to find their manual, what pressure range is required for the plumb in water? -fitting is 3/8 standard 'push in to fit' fittings? -Whats the deal with needing to 'turn off the water' when not in use to avoid wearing out the seals?

La Marzocco Linea Micra owner reviews

There will be an official plumb-in kit offered by LM in the very near future. I received a bespoke kit today so I can plumb in the Micra when it arrives Monday for the next leg of the "La Marzocco Linea Micra Espresso Machine Review". I wanted to include the line pressure pre-infusion as part of my review

Fresh Roast SR800 - Thermocouple to iPhone?

Thanks very much for this, both of you. When roasting, is it advisable to start with a high temperature setting? Or to increase gradually? The idea of baked coffee is not appealing

La Marzocco Linea Micra owner reviews

Cool, thanks! I can't wait. I think pre-infusion solves quite a bit when it comes to having some of the versatility people look for with flow control. Easier to extract any lighter roasts I might want to experiment with, anyway. I'll probably do a push fitting. I just can't see it worth the effort to open

Owner experience with Bezzera Strega

What's the purpose of the inner spring, any difference in tension pulling the lever without it? It looks like you drilled though the brass right above the springs am I correct? Can't you measure the pressure from the OPV like the regular machines? Which should be less invasive

I wouldn't lose sleep over it. DTR is a meaningless metric
