Personal import to Canada while being a visitor

As Steve notes, anyone can import any legal item into Canada. I've imported lots of things, and nobody has ever asked me my nationality, just proof of identity sometimes when picking up a parcel at the post office. On the other hand, I doubt you can get a tax refund, as I believe Canada no longer does this. Check out

La Marzocco Linea Micra owner reviews

I will not be doing a 'how to plumb in' since what I have is not the official kit but will be testing the preinfusion functionality. I will grab a few screenshots of the app setup since that is production. It is a simple process to plumb in and drain out. If you can turn a wrench and screwdriver

Considering Upgrading Grinder From Baratza Sette 270

I'd just refurbish the 270, as it is easy to do, and the Sette grinders punch way above their weight. They are suitable for hopper or single dosing, as you no doubt know, since it has low retention, mostly due to the vertical coffee path. On the other hand, if you've had it with the noise of the 270 and

User Experience with the Strietman CT2

In particular, it's an open boiler design. This has made thermal management much easier to the point that I don't really need to even worry about it. Not much alternatives out there. It is much quicker to pull multiple shots back to back and clean up is a breeze

Help Locating Leak on Breville Dual Boiler (BDB) - Video

Hi, I replaced several o-rings not too long ago after learning the process on this forum. I don't recall which ones, just the low-hanging fruit I could get to around both boilers. Seems I have a new leak but cannot locate the source of the hissing sound. Can anyone more experienced than me help me pinpoint where it is? This

Best of Yemen Auction Presale

I have no decaf greens so I picked up some demitasse sugarcane decaf too. I assume they ship together whenever you roast the Lot 20 rarity. Qima really represents with their auction marketing and it seems to pay off. The box and lot 20 samples bag {image}

Central Ohio /Columbus cafe re-up

That's my guess about Mission. They certainly seemed to have a strong business. And it doesn't look like the space they were in was repurposed for some yuppie nonsensical thing... Either way. I am from Phila. Area. But travel into Columbus for business.... Perhaps there is still a Columbus area

Considering Upgrading Grinder From Baratza Sette 270

Hello All, My Sette 270 is my first grinder, which I acquired along with my Profitec Pro 600 four years ago. It is starting to show its age, and I am curious about unlocking more potential from my Profitec. What are your suggestions for a worthy successor? Monoliths seem to be outside of my budget, which
