Best grinder aesthetically for KDVW Speedster

With a Speedster skip every 64/83mm grinder as it'll be subpar for the Speedster. Buy a better grinder like most have mentioned here to get the most out of this beautifull espresso machine

Bezzera Magica leak from brew head

You're group gasket is probably getting hard. Try putting a new one as that's the problem in 90% of the cases. Maybe the lip of the single basket is just a tad lower and thus not tightning far enough. I did always love the Cafelat silicone group gaskets

When distilled water is a good thing...

It's indeed not bad to drink distilled water with a good diet but it's bad to make coffee with distilled water as it tastes worthless. A proper extraction needs minerals to make good coffee and that doesn't work with distilled water. Better to descale a bit more often and do maintenance regularly than drinking subpar coffee because of bad coffee

Replace Izzo Alex Duetto II expansion valve

For the Duetto IV it's this one {link} - the part number is fe1223 and it's described as expansion valve D26 1/4 I think if you confirm that the fitting on the bottom of your existing valve is 1/4 99% chance (but hey it's a free forum here so no guarantees!) it should work work on a Duetto

ECM Giotto water flow is uneven

Update: i also regulated the pressure stat. Now pressure is consistently at 1.1 and temperature peaks at about 96.5 measured at group head. I noticed that the moment I release the brewing, temperature jumps one degree, then it will slowly drop. Any comment on the water flow, highly appreciated!

Fellow Aiden anyone?

Was just released and it has some very interesting solutions especially the wide ability in setting up both bloom, pour, temperature, ratio among other things it look to really mimic handbrew and all the things we do with lot of interesting solutions. Personally I might get it for an automated solution as it seem to be customisable enough

Best grinder aesthetically for KDVW Speedster

Anodized might fit the best to the raw Speedster, it is also the cheapest surface. (not in stock, maybe next year) {image} {image}
