Wife loves Keurig for ease of use, bought her a new one and gives off plastic smell and taste. Need alternative.

Upgrade from Mini Vivaldi ii and Eureka Specialita

The La Spaz is a solid machine. Unless you're going into light roasts, I don't think you're going to see a lot of change in the cup by changing machines. I agree with others that moving up in grinders will make the biggest change, past better coffees. Where you go probably depends on if you're looking for classic mouthfeel or...

Rocket Giotto - blinking green light

Ok I know this topic has been beat to death, but I'm a new Rocket Giotto Cronometro R owner and I really can't find this answer directly. We know a fast blinking light is low or no water, slow blinking light is standby mode (90 minutes of no activity) but there is 3 symbols under the light that I'm curious...

Upgrade from Mini Vivaldi ii and Eureka Specialita

The 53 mm group will pull shots as well as a 58. The main advantage (?only advantage) of the 58 mm group is that there are more accessories that are available, e.g. tampers, funnels, etc. These days, however, you can get most things easily in a 53 mm. I'm guessing you already have the 53 mm stuff you need. Also,...

Does nickel leach from a nickel plated boiler?

You could always email the manufacturer. I've done that before and they've always answered.

Good grinder to pair with La Marzocco Linea Mini?

I honestly would prefer single dosing, I already have all the accessories needed for it but if I have to sacrifice this part for a profile that would fit me more, It wont kill me as for RPM, I honestly have no experience at all with this, so it's really not needed as for stepped or stepless, I won't be...

Duomo The Eight Review

BaristaBob, you and I are of the same mind. When it comes that Pullman/Asso style leveler/distributor, I've always been bothered that only a certain portion is getting distributed properly and rest is getting smushed down, in it's less-than-ideal condition. Your experiment confirms it, so hopefully the Kazak does alright.

How do you like your Baratza 270w upgrade?

I have the very similar 270Wi and I find the quality of coffee in the cup to be a clear upgrade from the Compak K-3 I owned before. You could say the advantage came from switching from flat to conical burrs, but I previously owned a conical Iberital Challenge grinder and didn't prefer it over the Compak. Also, I think...

Does nickel leach from a nickel plated boiler?

So the description of the Lelit Elizabeth says "Brew boiler: Nickel plated brass, 0.3L" - does that mean the outside is plated, the inside, or both? I guess I thought from the description the inside was plated with nickel.
