Smallest Prosumer Espresso Machine

1000% a Decent. I have a LMLM and a Decent and I'd take the Decent all day every day. I have no use for portability, but it kicks the pants off of everything else. It's also not 'cheap' looking or feeling at all. I understand where you are coming from though as I thought the same before I got mine

Rocket R Nine One

Well knock on wood the RN1 had all kinds of problems initially with reliability and the screen and everyone (Clive, Seattle and espressocoffee in italy all say Rocket fixed all of these issues). Having said that Sanremo is pretty much a commercial grade company, they've been around for a while and are very careful. I wouldn't expect too many

Rocket R Nine One

Another reason (for me) not to buy a You would be the fact that it just came out. All new technique machines have their teething problems. The Rocket has been around for some years, so you can trust teething is done

Coffee roaster exhaust / vents

First check building codes. Normally the pipe will not get that hot, but after long-term use the buildup can ignite- not only can, but has. I just cleaned out the pipe for my .75 kilo gas roaster and was glad I did. Not because it was hazardous in terms of ignition but because I avoided the possibility. The longer the

Coffee roaster exhaust / vents

2kg roaster won't be a big deal to vent. I'd swing for the B vent that is double walled. Probably calls for 3-4in piping but you'll need to check your install instructions. Technically roasters need positive pressure vent pipes which are quite pricey but home roasters can get away with the typical negative pressure rated pipes like type B. Just

Fellow Ode V2.0 burrs almost here

Got the new burrs installed just fine...though the original burrs were hard to remove and I did have to sand down the shaft as indicated in the instructional video. Otherwise process was pretty straightforward. Going to run some old beans through tonight and give it a go tomorrow morning. Curious what setting people are now using for

La Marzocco Linea Mini Leaking at Brew Boiler

I've been a happy Linea Mini owner for about seven years. It's been working without problems for most of that time. I did have a leak at the pump years ago, but got that sorted out with help from the LM people. Anyway, I recently decided to give the machine some bling with a walnut group cover
