ULKA pump humming and not pumping at times (intermittent)

Haha, I see what you did there.. In other news, I have a feeling that it might be a bad de-aerator/priming valve. Mine is plastic and old, so I went ahead and ordered the "replacement brass valve from Chris' Coffee". Fingers crossed!

What is a good, well rounded starter coffee

I'm beginning to realize this myself. I'm in NYC no just recently was near a roaster which doesn't deliver doesn't sell online but is accessible and tried theirs.

La Marzocco GS/3 MP steam boiler problem

Moderator Note: This post and the preceding post were moved from "a different topic" to the current topic. That said, if I understand the symptoms, your

Needed advice on used Quick Mill Anita

Congrats. It's hx, so I do not think you need a pid -- read more on that here in HB. As for gauge opv, i think a flow profiler kit is what you need! Enjoy your new toy

SSP Lab Sweet 64mm

No doubt there are plenty of people who will pay the $500+ for the dream in 98 mm. I'm far from convinced that "cast" makes a difference compared to machining a geometry. The Bentwood is evidence that a dual-purpose grinder comparable or better than the Lab Sweet doesn't need to have cast burrs. I think it's luck that the geometry
