A good dripper for drip grind dark roast?

I should have clarified the context - coarse in context of the finer grinds typically used in V60, etc. (There are V60 techniques that use a coarser grind.) Regardless, pretty much any dripper can extract well with the appropriate pouring technique. Your Kalita will work well. Good luck!

Salvatore Compact Lever leaking at top of group

What temp does the strip show after the machine has been on for several hours? A screen rinsing flush after pulling a shot stopped the thermosyphon stall issues on the early Londiniums.

Canada buyers of Robot have robots listed.. both versions.. I had great customer service there. Looks like they are sold out now.. but if you email them, they'll tell you when they likely will get more.

Salvatore Compact Lever leaking at top of group

Thanks for the suggestion. I was going to used a flat screwdriver to put them on but don't think I will need to based on your input. I've never measured the group idle temperature. I have a strip on the outside of the group and have lowered the pstat so that it is at 1.1 bar but I do get...

Single Dosing a Nuova Simonelli Mythos

Hey all, just wanted to share my experience with my mythos so far. Last week I picked up a mythos plus for $600. I've been wanting a large flat burr grinder with single dosing potential for a while.

Lelit Mara X vs good single boiler espresso machine

If you install a flow control kit and retain the existing spring the flow control lever will initially act as a variable preinfusion control. Once the preinfusion chamber fills then it becomes the same as a machine that has the stiffer spring installed with the flow control, which defeats the e61 inbuilt preinfusion altogether.

Mine just touches on one side. Quick work with a dremel/file on the arm should remedy this.
