Taste preference - Pro 800, Bosco, Alex Leva, Londinium or Strega

Why do I read that as a compliment :twisted: :lol: I do love my Cremina and plan on a Bosco in the not too distant future. When you do look to the Cremina I would consider the CT2 as that is the only machine that I would love to compare side by side with my Cremina. It is a beauty...

Nuova Simonelli Premier pours water thru steam wands

Nunas, Thanks for getting back to me. I tested the sensor with a ground wire to the fill sensor wire (disconnected from the needle) The solenoid turns on when I connect the wire to ground and the water stops running through my steam wands.

How I fell in love with my Cremina all over again.

I used painter's tape (the blue stuff) to tape the thermocouple to the group. I covered the tape with one of those silicone wrist bands and then wrapped the wire around the group, again around the neck of the boiler cap and then taped it to the back of the machine. See pictures below. I have velcro tape and was...

Are these Motta pitchers fake? Or is this normal?

Our 50 cl Motta pitcher weighs in at 269g. I believe it was purchased from Barista Space and seems to be missing the Motta leaflet. When I scan the barcode on the box it came in with my smart phone Bar Code App, the app comes up with 'Jack Daniels' of various ages; definitely a different kind of shot. How's...

Some feedback on roast profiles

If the coffee tastes good, then it's good. If you want to make your curve straighter than: It looks like you have a very slight plateau before 1st crack and then a definite crash during 1st crack. I feel like a dork since I'm just telling everyone the same thing after reading Scott's new book, but it really works... Lower...
