A haven dedicated to manual espresso machine aficionados.
It's also worthy to note that future production runs of the pro 2 will be supplied with new PF which has the degree of the taper area significantly reduced. It will be a few months until the new PF design is available.
One more update to share. Flair's Instagram page has a live stream currently up that mentions they are developing preheating cap for the classic/signature PF similar to what the pro version comes with.
That would be good.
