Another Rancilio Epoca Rebuild

Your pics puzzle me. I've never seen anything "clipped" to the element like that. The well in which the capillary and tip reside shouldn't be touching the element. It should be as close to vertical as possible without contacting anything except where it screws into the cap. Everyone I've seen is a little bent, but nearly vertical

Niche Zero burr travel

Does anyone know the distance the burr travels with each marking change? Just curious. Depending on origin, degree of roast, age of roast.... the range of adjustment has been around plus or minus one increment marking. ~8kg run through the grinder. Wondering if the adjustment range stays the same, decreases or increases once

Lelit vs Decent buying advice wanted

This has been resolved for a while now and no one should have problems grinding fine enough unless they still run defective HU's from that batch

Travel Milk (non-refrigerated?)

Good thoughts, all. Thanks. So no one on here uses those little shelf stable half and half packets then? Yup, I see that UHT, good to know. Sounds like our best bet so far, maybe a thermos of real milk too. Of course the other option is we learn to enjoy our espresso without

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?
