Can anyone tell me about this grinder?

Yes, it's a workhorse of a grinder & the T80 I had is still going strong these days, I gifted it to my nephew and it has been in use daily for 15 years and I had bought it well used! I performed some mods on it and they were pictured and documented here, I removed the doser and made

Lelit Elizabeth Owner Experience

Have had my V3 about two months now, and only been playing with the preinfusion settings in the Advanced menu. I haven't tried the other advanced changes per Dave Corby.

So I want an Olympia Cremina and paired grinder

Hi Dale, welcome to HB and I'm just a few miles South of you in Palm Coast these days, and I'm using my Cremina and Kafatek Conical daily until I get into my new home and get all my machines set up. I have a couple of ideas to offer since it sounds like you haven't ventured from using

Too much water during preinfusion after replacing E61 mushroom in Expobar Brewtus

The o-ring looks fine in the photo. They're all a little loose out in the open like that, it will get smashed in position and fill that groove a little more. But, do take it out and look at it again and look at it's cavity in the head, feel the wall where it should seal, down around the

Espresso spiced up with licorice

Drop, translated as licorice, contains an extract of 'zoethout' that also translates as should be able to buy the actual root or powder of it and add it to the ground coffee...I'll pass
