New PID user, how to adjust it

So, on my Synchronika there is a steam boiler and a separate brew boiler. The PID can set both to what temperatures you like. For example, my steam was set at 254 Fahrenheit and steamed ok. I turned it up to 270, and went from 1.5 bars to 2.0 bars of pressure. It was easier for me to get that...

New PID user, how to adjust it

Thanks. I'm kind of clueless (other than the researching I'm trying to do on PIDs) as I've never owned a machine with one. They usually recommend a temperature for light roasts to medium and dark roasts, don't they? I thought higher for medium to darker than light. I thought it was 198-202°F for med...

New PID user, how to adjust it

I believe that the PID controls the brew temp, but by the time the water gets to the puck of coffee it will be slightly cooler, so aim high. As far as the PID setting for the steam boiler, as long as you like the amount of steam you're getting, should be fine.

New PID user, how to adjust it

I will in the hopefully very near future be getting an espresso machine with a PID. Getting weary of watching my Gaggia temp. surf, and still not knowing for sure what is going on. Anyway, I have heard that for medium to medium dark roasts one should set the PID ...

Rex C100 PID modded.

I need a bit of help if possible. I have a modded Rex c100 PID controller, it was the internal (MAN) relay model, I removed both relays, the brew control works fine but not the steam. Has anyone used a modded Rex and got the alarm/steam function to work? ...

Newbie "buy once, cry once" espresso setup, budget $2500

Lots of people love the Niche, but you still have to weigh your dose. I have no reason to say it's bad at all. With the Sette 270W, you don't, and that's very cool. I don't think there's any other grinder that does that.The 270 without the W is like the Niche, a good single-dose grinder, although Ni...

Newbie "buy once, cry once" espresso setup, budget $2500

The thing is, you have a profitec 600 and a monolith flat. The OP is talking a budget of $2500. Over 10 years of espresso machines I have spent a total of about $2000 to get somewhere satisfying, and it would be ni e to give the OP the benefit of our experience and get them quickly to a place...

Newbie "buy once, cry once" espresso setup, budget $2500

I've lost track of the number of times I've said it, with only one notable exception, a PID is little more than a marketing gimmick on an HX machine. You still need to manage the brew temperature through a flush routine. Been there, done that, when there weren't viable ...
