Lagom P64 Flat (Option-O)

At some point last year, there was a batch of new P64's with HU burrs that came with such issue. If I remember correctly, the issue was on SSP side and not Option-O. 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

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. To get both to match requires a very consistent and systematic pre-charge routine protocol. Artisan only shows you the current temperature of the

Cloudy water from hot water spout only - Rocket Appartamento

Because the water in your boiler has probably not been let out despite a lot of steaming... Steaming evaporates out the water but leaves the minerals behind, concentrating more and more. Give the boiler three flushes to bring it back to clear, then use the hot water valve to pre-heat a cup before brewing to keep enough
