Riviera Two Group piston seal problem

I might try one more thing, shimming the piston gaskets by wrapping some PTFE tape underneath them. If they flare out a bit more they may provide a waterproof seal.

Breville Dual Boiler Mods and Maintenance

Just purchased 1 year old 920xl with 960 shot counts after I went through his thread. Thank you everyone for such an informative discussion. I do have 2 questions: 1.

Minneapolis gathering 2021, July 31!

I had a lot of fun and was very happy to meet other coffee enthusiasts! Regarding the neighbors, I actually met Nates number as I was leaving and he asked me to come check out his Porsche. That thing was in immaculate condition.

Would you replace these burrs?

I purchased an Atom 75 abroad and my burrs came like this. Assuming that it was a result of them using too much torque when installing as the upper burr carriers screws were also showing signs of being stripped. Damage can be seen on the bottom left and right screws. {image}

Roast coffee without any acidity

You need to give more info, either what you have or what you want to use. Research these two names: Rob Hoos and Scott Rao. They explain roasting curves to generate sweetness and manipulate acidity. Search here on HB and look for their roasting books.

I've not tried it but I do have a Gabi a, b and a melodrip. I think the water would pour much faster from a kalita. I would think this would disrupt the bed more but who knows

Breville After-Warranty Service - please post your experiences

The new machine was delivered a few days after I left on my trip. I was gone for almost 12 weeks. Picked it up from a neighbor this morning. Brand new, only noticeable difference was that 1.
