Thanks for posting the instructions from Option O. I am just a bit confused it didn't say unscrewing anything, how does that method work?

Breville Dual Boiler - no pressure in head or hot water [BDB]

Well, the simplest test is: If you can stop the flow of water with your thumb over the pump outlet, then the pump is too weak

Trying to figure out connecting my faema compact

{image} It looks like a 3/8 compression fitting, to me... Like the same as the shut off valve under a North American sink would have... Is it not about 14mm at the outside diameter?

Buyers Remorse - Kaleido M10 Astringent Roasts

Thank you for the charge temperature raising suggestion. I added the 30 second drop to the beginning of a standard espresso profile for the Ikawa PRO. The same PNG coffee I had such astringent results with before is quite pleasant (if not perfect) now. {image} Matt

The new DF83v

I never had any stalling issues, even at low RPMs with very lightly roasted and dense coffees. However, I ended up returning it due to an intense off gassing smell of, what I believe to be, the paint job. I let it air out for a week and it was still emitting a strong odor. It actually impacted the grinds

Espresso Grinders - Stuck in the Research Rabbit Hole. Please Help! Ceado E6P or Mignon XL? Any Others?

The SSP HU burrs I tried on the Ceado E37J were a tight fit, needed shimmying and gummed up regularly.

Pasquini Livia 90 high brew pressure and valve leaking

Later models used an oring at this point under the lock nut (OR GASKET 114 VITON 7496052) Metric size 114. Since there's only cool water here a special material may not be needed. I looked up this size in the Livia parts manual found on this site under "resources". Teflon tape may work just as well
