La Marzocco Linea Classic Pump Runs with Hot Water

Compare P2, P3, and P4 jumpers. Jumper on adds pump to operation. P4 is normally on as it is pump and fill. P3 and P4 depend on whether or not you want pump with water. Which relay is activated depends on whether you connect the 6 wire hot water switch to touch pad 1 or 2. Third relay on newer...

No, theirs ran $30/lb (sold out) but since we had 100 lbs, we were able to put this together for more cheaply. Post your thoughts in the Panama Lerida Geisha thread. "Panama Lerida Gesha"

Price difference for Comandante C40 manual coffee grinder

STC has them in stock: {link} They're a direct importer and have typically had competitive pricing in the US. It's been a while and I don't remember if Comandante had MAP or not.

Is frequently moving a grinder hard on it?

You just have to override your wife on this one. The grinders are now part of the family. Try putting a small table in the next room for "overflow" equipment. I have 2 grinders and a MoccaMaster in the dining room adjoining the kitchen. It actually looks pretty nice there. One day we might remodel, but until then...

I'm stocked up well on Panama Geishas for a bit. Washed and natural. Captain's had the Lerida (washed). Crown still has it in large volumes. I also got in on Dave's. Roastmasters has the Elida Estate Natural ASD Torre Lot.

I just placed my order for a Decent Espresso DE1XL and can't wait to receive it!

Woohoo! Congratulations! It's an amazing machine and a great community, I have been consistently impressed with my DE1+ since the day I bought it almost a year ago. It's odd to think that it's now a better machine due to firmware and software updates than it was when I paid for it. It also has new profiles to try, new...

I just placed my order for a Decent Espresso DE1XL and can't wait to receive it!

I have been doing my research on this company for a while. I started my espresso hobby with a Nespresso and then upgraded to a Lelit Grace to a Lelit Bianca to finally buy this machine. (We are talking about years of use here) I am totally excited to try this machine. I have read some great reviews and the...

It shouldn't be a problem unless you drop it. Repeated unplugging and plugging might be hard on the cord and its plug, so you should be carefull doing that...hold the plug itself, not its cord when disconnecting it.
