Dead spots midway through the shot, bitterness

Excellent all around single dose grinder

Interesting in giving this a try. I really miss Facsimile (which was a cupping venture he did a couple of years ago)

Fellow news and information!

La Marzocco Linea Mini User Experience

Per LM if you start a shot and mid shot run out the shot should still finish in reservoir mode. This would suggest that based on the 1 minute cutoff and the calculation of water they calculate there to be enough in the boiler. The only issue would then be sucking air in from reservoir which can like
