Crust in Aeropress

So according to BH extraction is not drastically reduced by breaking the crust. Rather there is a stratification of concentration that makes it seem that way in cupping. But it would be different if you collected the entire brew. In my tests each of the entire brews was decanted and filtered before measuring the strength. Similarly, when I tasted these...

Isn't simpler to remove the silicone sealing ring of a flair shower screen and turn it into a puck screen done right on the group size ? {image}

Full wiring diagram for Isomac Zaffiro

For the thermal paste, I understand it's food grade but this presumably doesn't come in actual contact with the water, so any thermal grease should in theory do, no? I see on espressocare.com that you have a lot of parts although I couldn't find any silicone tubes. Would any do? Lastly, judging from {link} it looks like I may be...

Temperature strip for Olympia Cremina?

Yes, but tape didn't hold well there, the tip barrel is a bit too large. Slow response; it is the thermometer itself or the (insulated?) tip, it never seems to take a jump to the right temperature, even if you throw it in hot water. Maybe I should take away this metal tube and stick the bicouple directly to the...

Cannot find the obstruction in HX/thermosiphon (Bezzera Mitica)

Thank you Bluenoser. Unfortunately no improvement. In fact I don't think the gargling air is the cause of the problem. The gargling only occurs when I drain the group by lifting the lever without engaging the pump, so it seems to me that it's just air getting through to replace the water that I drain from one (or both) of...

Artisan 2.4 event button tiles

The custom event buttons themself come in three sizes (tiny, small and larger). This can be configured in the buttons tab of the Events dialog (menu Config >> Events, 2nd tab). The text size used in the chart for annotations is platform and system dependent and also depends on your monitor resolution. Thus you can adjust to different dpi resolutions...
