Profitec Pro 700 - no steam, no hot water

It's definitely an "electrical component" problem, not valves or anything. If you're comfortable running the machine with its panels off, do so. Let it heat up with its body panels off and watch the LEDs on the SSRs. You'll see the Brew SSR on solid for quite a whike at first, until the brew boiler gets up

Torontonians - what's %Arabica like?

I would find that extremely annoying. It is starting to sound worse for line-ups than when Jollibee and Uncle Tetsu's first opened in Toronto. (Jollibee is a fast-food chain serving Filipino fried chicken. Uncle Tetsu is a chain for Japanese cheesecake. Ugh. Now I want some Japanese cheesecake )

New La Marzocco SMA vacuum breaker - What is the open/close temperature?
