Smart outlet used for espresso machine melted

Someone here -- I can't recall who -- installed one of these, and early reports were positive: https://iot.connectsense.com/products/in-wall-outlet?variant=31020787204154 Interestingly, there are receptacles for both 20 and 15 amp circuits. You may want to do a little research into these if you want to restore smart switch capability to your machine.

Inexpensive cup tray/stand for espresso machine?

To answer your question: I am the only one that uses a scale, and by the way I am using it less often than before, just because I do not really needed it other than for when we try new beans. We drink one brand of coffee only, and we always use the same espresso cups, we don't really need the scale anymore other than for when we want to "play" a little bit. Just grind, tamp, pull the sho...

First prosumer espresso machine / grinder - help!

I'm not really a fan of any of those three machines aesthe...

Onyx Monarch Espresso

I could never get this roast right for espresso either, however, I've ordered repeatedly for use as brewed coffee. Give that a try. It's got a traditional coffee taste with hints of red wine. It's delicious.
