Decent vs La Marzocco Linea Micra (or Mini)

The Decent software does magic things, nothing any other current machine can do. But the software is not perfect, if you've never found a problem, mor power to you. For some of use it's a somewhat constant series of surprises. I put up with it because of what the machine does and I wish it felt like development was moving

Torontonians - what's %Arabica like?

Was just there. Unfortunately I got to the register to order and was told I'd then need to wait 4x longer for my drink than I did in the lineup. No thanks. I can imagine it won't matter if I ever try this coffee considering the coffees I've tried and currently drink. Also $20 for 200g.

Mythos burrs in Eureka Drogheria MCD4 85mm

Hello John, My name is Rhys Watkins and I own a scientific coffee company. We have considered testing what you are doing but have been unable to justify the expences as the burr designs look to be the same except for size. Do you believe the burr design to be the same with a different coating?

Pasquini Livia 90 faulty relay

If when the relay clicks, it then opens and clicks again repeating that forever, it's likely a bad power supply in the controller. If I was guessing, I'd say the replace the diode bridge and electrolytic capacitor, but that's just a guess
