Alternatives to BPlus shower screen

Plenty of fabricators of sintered-screen material if your quantities are high enough. There were a few tried in the Decent community in the early days of screen-mania. As you own a Decent, I believe you can look those threads up on Discord or Discourse (I forget which it was).

Where is the magnetic float switch on Profitec Pro 700?

It must be an epidemic! The same thing happened to me on my Synchronika yesterday. The advice given, to clean the tank and be sure to give the empty tank a shake to be sure the float is free, works. Beware, however, that the float has to be inserted with the correct orientation. Look closely at the destruction manual.

Post a pic of your home espresso setup...

I finally made a shelf to organize the hell that was my coffee counter, so I figured it's high time I finally post a photo here. I still have to tile the backsplash and also figure out how to cram a brew grinder in there, but that's not likely to happen any time soon. {image}

Mahlkonig E65S GBW - user experience

Do you use the the grinder for single dosing? I got mine a few weeks ago and I don't have any issues; granted that I use it with a full hopper. It is probably mis-aligned like yours and would benefit from an alignment, but I have no issues pulling shots. I use pre-infusion 2ml/s for 10-12 seconds than full pressure/flow.

Good grinder to pair with La Marzocco Linea Mini?

The Mahlkonig is really fabulous -- exactly what I was hoping for: easy to use, superb grind quality, precise doses. Retention appears to be very, very low, though I haven't attempted to measure it. (I was told < 2 gm when I ordered it, fwiw.) I use the portafilter recognition mode exclusively (it's magic!), and the GbW function is eerily...

How to Best Brew Anaerobic Natural Coffee

@Elemsee thank you! I am wondering about this too. I personally dislike the earthy notes of most fermented coffees, but sometimes can not resist to buy them when I get the feeling the roaster could surprise me. Grinding coarser or a using a lower temperature seems to be hit or miss. Try April Coffee's recipe, it can be found on...

Black and White Roasters

I've been brewing their worka chelbesa hydro and anarobic as filter and spro. While both are excellent the hydro is outstanding. For Spro I'm using 18g in 45 out both as a "Australian"style espresso (using a decent de1). Or as a turbo shot both are excellent smooth and peachy without being bitter.

Single dosing bellows

Looks really nice and seems you are happy. Definitely, much nicer than the OXO homemade version. Not the cheapest option, but nothing in this hobby ever is. I see they have these specked for all types of grinders on their website.
