Pump to replace FloJet all in one unit

Nothing wrong with Shurflo, Flojet but I really like my Aquatec pumps (Aquatec 5512-1E12-J586) with a 2-gallon Shurflo stainless steel accumulator; works great with minimal cycling of the pump. I use one for the water delivery system to my Slayer as well as in my little boon docking RV and also portable shower kit in my LandCruiser.

Profiling Options for La Marzocco GS3

They make their product tables difficult to decipher. Their response chart is non-dimensional so they can use a single response curve for all of their valves. Their chart plots K [sub] v [/sub] /K [sub] vs [/sub] , and K [sub] v [/sub] is a coefficient used in an equation to calculate Q. Both K values and Q have units of m [sup] 3 [/sup] /h: {image} Taking your example of an ideal flow one step fu...

Loring roasting development time

If you are coming up short/sour you are not loosing enough moisture early on for flavor reactions to take place. Technically caramelization will take place before the Millard so when you are "developing" flavor you need to have a dry enough bean in the first place, but not too dry. You can try and change ROR into 1C to make it crack harder but that is a slippery slope to crash and flick....

What color is the label on the front of your Bosco Sorrento one group?

Mine is a very dark blue which looks black without shining a light directly on it. Data plate has a dark red background.

Pump to replace FloJet all in one unit

My FloJet 4000/5000??? has been in service on my coffee bar for a few years now and I believe it was unused when I purchased it at an estate sale but unsure. It has served yeomans' duty while I have had it feeding both my VBM and Bosco. I do not want to be left without so am planning to purchase a motor driven pump rather than another vibratory unit before the original FJ expires. My coffee bar is...

User Experience with the Strietman CT2

Hello, Got my CT2 a few days ago, after several and long months following my pre order. Worth the wait. As the CT1, the CT2 is absolutely beautiful. I am now at the very beginning of my learning curve. My shots are currently decent / fairly good. However, they are lacking of "abundant" crema. As I am grinding coffee with my Portaspresso for the first time for the CT2, I am still searchin...

Thinking of upgrading my scale

I am in the same boat. The Hario V60 is so fast and accurate but it is a little bigger than I want. I bought a Brewista 2 but am sorely disappointed because it is much slower.

Problem with New ECM Classika II PID

Thanks Bluenoser! I was trying 14g in single and 18g in double basket.. but the water really come out so quickly which looks like there was no coffee inside the basket, would channeling cause the water run this quick? It's like 3-4bar when brewing.. So far I haven't got a bottomless, but will be on my list! But with your tamper size suggestion, it's quite difficult to find a 58.4mm, I see most of ...
