Lagom P64 Flat (Option-O)

I do not recall many complaining about the HU burrs not grinding fine enough. It takes some time to season though. At the start mine were producing grind with more fines, even visually, but later they produced what I expected - fluffy grind that hardly needed much puck prep

Cloudy water from hot water spout only - Rocket Appartamento

Ok. 3 full flushes via the hot water spout? I'm just running it until no water comes out 3 times? And then the advice was to use the spout daily after that to heat a cup, right?

Artisan - BT curve and ROR lag

Welcome Matteo. Are both graphs of the same roast and just aligned differently? It looks that way since in the second graph the 0:48 TP occurs after the 0:57 TP of the background roast.

Cloudy water from hot water spout only - Rocket Appartamento

Hi all, I picked up a 2nd hand 4 year old Appartamento recently which works perfectly but was clearly not regularly cleaned / maintained. I popped the shower screen off and it was covered in a layer of grime. The previous owner wasn't aware that the water reservoir is removable and it also was covered in a light

Lelit vs Decent buying advice wanted

It definitely is one of the smaller trays I've worked with, but I'm surprised at how infrequently I have to empty it. I don't clean my portafilters with the water from the machine because I use that special water for coffee as much as possible. I use a tap nearby
