V60- Excessive amount of grounds at top of cone

Latte art tutorial from a 12 year old.

That is just fantastic! My 12 y/o son is nowhere near that good. He can make a decent tasting latte, but that's about where it ends. Your son definitely has a future in coffee, whether as a hobbyist or professional.

Breville Dual Boiler, leaking and GFCI tripping.

I would really try to locate the leak while the machine is on. It is good that it is tripping your GFCI as that means the safety mechanisms are working. I actually had a similar problem with my Decent when I first got it. A tube inside was not secured quite right and with the cover off I found where...

Smart Espresso Profiler

I have the DEPro v1.0 which I got in August of 2018. John (founder of Decent) has worked with the creators of this Smart Portafilter. He has even done some work to automatically import a profile from this portafilter in to the DE to create a profile that can then be run on the DE. I am not sure how...
