Niche Zero grinder

Unfortunately, this is not necessarily true. (Do not ask me how I know this.)

Drip - too fast - help

I haven't used that filter but there are a few common ways used to slow things down. One is to grind the beans finer, which can restrict the flow a bit. You can also pour slower putting less water through the grounds at a time. If that fails you could see what happens if you put a paper filter inside the metal one that you have.

Lelit Bianca User Experience

When you say the classic 40% open shot. is this with the rotary set at 8 bar or the 10 bar usually recommended? or is it monitored on the group pressure gauge?

Niche Zero grinder

While I don't really need a dishwasher to clean my catch cup, as long as it is safe to put it in the dishwasher (which I already had before I got my Niche and the catch cup), I do put the catch cup in there once in a while, when I use that handy machine to do all my other dishes. It also helps to get rid of some minor grinds sticking to the cup as well (without any extra effort at all).

Channeling - Same spot every time no matter what

I'll preface this with I don't have a E61 machine. But I remember an instance where a diffuser was to blame for this very thing. In the case I'm thinking of, when the screen was off it could be seen that most of the water was coming out in one particular location. Don't know if this would be of help, but good luck.

lol, anything that regularly comes in contact with roasted or ground coffee is going to need to be cleaned. I'd probably want to wash the cup myself every so often.

How to replace coffees in blends?

After a lot of disappointing experimentation with blending I finally lucked out and accidentally created a delicious espresso blend. This was only possible because I had roasted all three coffees extensively as SO, had grown tired of them and didn't mind using some on a punt, and needed something for a picky friend in a rush. I've now run out of one of the coffees (
