Congrats! When did you order it? And from which company? I'm curious, so I could estimate when to expect mine

Is a Bottom Paper Filter Useful?

Not a complete list: "Can bottom filters improve flavor by reducing crema bitterness?" "Puck paper purveyors?" "Paper filter in the middle of the puck" "Filter paper shot forensics" I've been a fan of top & bottom papers for many months, with no plans to stop. A big win for cleanliness, and whenever I drop in a mid-puck paper

Coffee beans resting starts when?

As soon as they leave the roast chamber they are "resting." Vacuum sealing prevents oxidation but not off gassing of CO2

I should have posted quotes for reference, but I believe it was actually your posts where I found out about it! It makes sense for LM to take the firmware route once they had the ability. Prior to the connected machines, the jumper was the only way to bypass the reservoir, aside from using a dip switch on the

As another Mini owner here, I think we should at least be grateful that LM FINALLY enabled a feature which should have been available from the "get go". I'm guessing it was initially a marketing decision. If they can allow the preinfusion, I don't see why they couldn't override the sensor issue. But I'm not an engineer. Perhaps consider plumbing

How to assess descaling progress?

BTW, when the water runs clear, I remove a fitting and do two flushes. It's a lot quicker than running gallons of water through to get rid of the sour taste

Sanremo You - Single Group Espresso Machine

I was turned off by E61 at first, but I think it will help keep things easy and consistent if there's a standard group with standard and easily-found accessories. Long live SR61!

Out of curiosity, how did you even find this out? Did you let the water level get low enough on the reservoir to see for yourself? Did someone tell you about it? I'm so bummed that my Mini disabled the sensor! The results I can get from preinfusion aren't possible with "pre-brew", it just seems so ridiculous for them to
