Major Bellman stovetop steamer breakthrough!

Have had a bellman for about 1.5 months now to pair with my 2 year old Cafelat Robot.

Weber Key Grinder

Thanks. It also isn't counting all the panic cancels too. I just wanted to make sure they had the right number for the shipping deal since they asked for Backer ID. Appreciate you all

Mazzer Super Jolly Auto - Wiring Diagram & Questions

I'm 3d printing a doserless mod/chute setup. SSP burrs have been ordered. Only wiring outstanding. I did search, there is reference to jumping a cable in a terminal block but no wiring diagrams for the grinder.

3d printed drip tray for Gaggia Classic Pro

My teenaged daughter / 3d printing consultant made this slim drip tray for my Gaggia Classic Pro, which usefully increases the clearance under the portafilter so that taller cups and scales can fit beneath.
