How raise brew temperature VBM Domobar Super?

To check the boiler water temp all you have to do is get a cup (pref a foam cup), a thermometer (pref digital and fast that goes higher than 250 F), and then measure the water from the hot water tap when it initially comes out.

Rate of Rise (ROR) calculation

Artisan is a great way to go. I did that a bit. It's free! Takes a little setup. Otherwise rate or rise is just degrees per minute so if you had one reading every minute your change in temp would be the rate of rise. For any shorter interval you have you just have to multiply it out to sixty...

Returning the Niche Zero?

Very inconsistent in terms of achieving a particular brew recipe. I grind X grams, and I expect Y grams +/- 10% in Z seconds.
