Gloria Astoria Water Level Issue Control (Giemme RL?)

I wanted to follow up because there's nothing more annoying than a forum post that goes dark. I have solved the issue . As I mentioned before, the issue cropped up after we replaced the main power switch. Upon further inspection the NEW power switch did not have the same pins jumped as the

Espresso is weak

Those specialty shops are probably using 20 gr baskets for a double shot volume most likely in the ristretto range. Most shops sell more milk drinks, so they tend to pull thick syrupy shots to cut through the milk. Your shots are more in the normale range which will be less intense. Pull at a lower ratio. Also

The hunt for best Italian roasted coffee beans

I might be late here but if you're into specialty coffee there's Pergamino Caffè just outside the Vatican. Very good but admittedly not traditional Italian coffee

The hunt for best Italian roasted coffee beans

Sounds interesting. I just ordered a bag of the Pregiato and a bag of the Selezione to try out. I'm assuming these are Nitro-packed?

Got an email back from Mr. Li, suggesting perhaps some chaff got into the burner and is burning. I will clean it out and report back

The craziest %#*$ing thing I've seen all day...

"From WFTV9 in Florida": "A Kissimmee pastor who teaches online ministry classes was arrested Monday for exposing himself and performing a sex act on himself at a Starbucks store, deputies said." Uhh.. I have worked in the coffee industry in various ways, on and off for two decades now. I really like coffee. I roast my own coffee. I

Help with water flow adjustment with Lelit (Bianca) FCD and paddle

I'd leave flow profiling out of it until you get used to your machine. Especially with a comfort espresso, extended soak ("PI") may worsen the result.

Water dripping through the edges of stock shower screen (Rancilio Silvia)

For a lack of any other responses, here goes... It shouldn't be squishy like that when you squeeze it. Perhaps it was over-tightened and the stainless backing surface was crushed back a little less convex than it should be. When I squeeze a new one, there's no movement at all. Mesh and stainless backing are in
