Dead spots midway through the shot, bitterness

Thank you. I would love to understand why (the p100 factor). Thank you for the last point

I would bet that the steam boiler element shuts off either immediately during a refill or after x seconds. If you're brewing a shot when limescale or who knows what prevents water from entering the machine, hopefully you'll notice quickly enough. I don't think it's *that* easy to kill the machine - the first time I turned on my Micra

I like 10 seconds for my light roasts so I hope they don't do it that way. All they need to do is retain the low-water safety. It seems to be a simple software/firmware issue

Profitec Pro 800 not filling boiler

D'oh! You're right. I have the Pro 800 plumbed-in and it's pointing to the right (when facing the group)

Maybe one of the reviewers can stress test it to see if it always stops. Just makes me wonder why they wouldn't replace the pre-brew feature with this. On reservoir, their app could easily cap pre-infusion to a max of 3-5 sec for safety. Or even just set it to a static value like pre-brew

Frankly I think it's not great that being plumbed in means no low water safety. Again it's less harmful for Minis than Micras, but what if there's an issue with your plumbed-in source, filter, etc? Wouldn't you automatically damage your machine?

Profitec Pro 800 not filling boiler

The Clive video has the valve position backwards. I did the same thing after watching the video 2 weeks ago when my machine arrived

Irradiated greens?

I think basically radiation kills bacteria... They do this in Europe and they store milk on the shelf unrefrigerated. That's just wrong, imo. They store eggs on the shelf unrefrigerated in Europe too and I'm not sure how they do that.... It's the eggshell coating that washes off and then becomes permeable to oxygen
