Sage Barista Pro - smell of grease?

Hello. I bought a Sage Barista Pro machine today. As I pulled out the burr, I smelled something like grease. Is this normal with this machine and does it not match the taste of the coffee?

Londinium Compact.

I'm curious as well. I'm going back and forth on waiting for the Vectis or just getting the Compressa now, given the current GBP:dollar ratio. My biggest hesitation with the Vectis is the temperature stability with consecutive shots. I asked Reiss on IG about this, and he said the Vectis would be on par with the Cremina

Isomac Tea - low brew pressure [solved]

I think you're saying that the pump isn't stalling. That the pump is fine but that all the brew-flow is going over the expansion valve when brew circuit pressure exceeds 5 bars. And I think you have proven it by squeezing the silicone tubing and briefly stopping the flow through the expansion valve. Can you not adjust
