I made a short video about the picture-in-picture DE1 mod that Johanna did:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nvbbwkIyci0

Johanna (she's a customer, not an employee) is also leading the effort to have plug-in extension standard for the de1app, and that's just been released into beta.

This picture-in-picture mod is just the sort of thing I'd like as an extension, as it's a small feature that should be made available to all the various skins people are developing for the DE1. There's a lot of activity going on in the Decent owner's community right now, around this new feature, as lots of programmer/owners of Decents have small feature ideas they'd like to do.

Another example of a de1app extension is Miha's "coffee visualiser":
https://visualizer.coffee/shots/64c33b3 ... 60c5877cd8

It's a web-based chart-creator for your Decent Espresso shots. The plugin that runs inside the de1app automatically uploads yours shots to it. Miha's offering a different (superior?) way to see your espressos, discuss them with others, and in the future I expect this will lead to more analysis and insight too.

DE1XL 360º countersunk and not

You can see how both our DE1XL espresso machines look in black and white, from all sides, both countersunk and not.

I can't either, I had the same issue in another thread. Direct links seem to work though. @Moderators maybe there is something wrong with whatever kind of link was used here or our respective browsers.

I think it's a wide-ranging bug in HB, because old posts that used to have video, such as
Decent Espresso news

no longer have working youtube any more.

I've written to Dan about it.

I'm going to paste the YT link under each video, for now.

The countersink bracket is sized for the DE1XL model, which is about 6cm deeper and about 5mm taller, than the DE1+/DE1PRO models.

So yeah, you can put those models in the countersink, it just won't look as good as it should.

A did a bunch of videos when I was living in California, with my DE1+ in the countersink. You can see that it sits a bit too deep, but generally looks ok:

However, you can also buy the DE1XL conversion kit, and change your DE1+/DE1PRO chassis into a DE1XL one:

I was interviewed a few weeks ago for a video podcast by John Lamberton. He's an interesting guy who likes to cover wide-ranging topics.

Instead of focusing on coffee, we talked more about philosophy of design, and the interaction between mental models and tools. These were very much on my mind when we design the Decent, so it was great to explore this topic in depth.
