Great espresso machines with 15 min warm-up

I think you will be fine leaving a regular dual boiler machine on all day. One they are up to temperature, power consumption is pretty low, maybe 100W or so. Maximum ratings will rarely be reached

Help choosing water filtration system for Montreal water

No, I've never taken out the mushroom yet but have descaled our machine completely with citric acid a few times. Not something I'd want to do again and haven't had to since the installation of the BWT system.

Anyone brewing Sprovers?

I make Sprovers using a recipe similar to what Whole Latte Love recommends in their {video}:
  • Aeropress filter at bottom (it's slightly too big for a 58mm basket but I just force it in with a tamper)
  • 14g dose, ground a bit coarser than for filter
  • No tamping
  • 140g yield
  • Adjust flow rate for 2 g/sec to get 140g in

    Lagom P100

    Standard US outlets are 120v (Appliance outlets can be 250v with different plug), so someone using this in the US would typically order 120v and type b plug so it is compatible with the standard outlet. Short answer is for compatibility

    La Pavoni Millenium boiler is slowly rotating

    The water under the base is usually a sign of a pin hole leak in the boiler gasket. Though sometimes the pstat could be the cause as well. It is definitely not from the boiler/base connection as it is impossible for water to come from there. The rotation of the base. Could be your base has deformed

    Does total dissolved solids determine sour/bitter balance in espresso?

    I think it's a lot better than a reasonable approximation of the dissolved solids concentration. The VST refractometer has an accuracy of ±0.05% in the espresso range of 5-20% TDS. That doesn't sound like a rough measure to me
