La Pavoni Millenium boiler is slowly rotating

I wouldn't bother. To over-simplify, gaskets/seals that are in contact with sliding surfaces like piston seals benefit from regular replacement; gaskets/seals between fixed surfaces like the gasket/o-ring between the heating element and boiler should not need replacement. Thus, for example, the gasket/o-ring between the heating element and the boiler does not come in the maintenance kits that Stef...

Rotary pump mod for Rancilio Silvia Pro - flow restrictor?

Just found this and thought it was a cool idea. Any luck with the flow restrictor and a rotary pump on the Pro?

Steaming Milk with 4-Hole Tip

I've struggled with my LM GS3 and its 4-hole tip for awhile. I had a Breville BE before with its one hole tip and weak steam but always made nice, marshmallowy foam that was perfect for latte art. I could easily make Capp foam and so forth. I used the typical 30 degree angle with the tip

Best Grinder for both Espresso and Filter

Thanks for the response! I was hoping to avoid keeping the rocky due to space. If the Niche couldn't cope with changing between filter and espresso so often then I would consider buying a second single dose grinder after the nice (hoping to avoid this expense though)

If you have the space, keep the rocky for filter and use niche for espresso

Best Grinder for both Espresso and Filter

Hi all, So in my household I tend to drink Espresso, and my Girlfriend tends to drink Filter. Currently we have 2 grinders - Rancilio Rocky for Espresso and just an old Krupps one for the Filter. My question is - I am wanting to potentially buy the Niche Zero, but I would like this to be
