La Marzocco GS3 AV pump runs periodically at idle.

Given the choice between uniformly distributing water onto the coffee bed, or plopping it in a lopsided manner onto...

1980 La Pavoni Europiccola - Where to start?

Nice work! Why did you leave the steam valve sloped? The black handles look great to me!
