    Since you can't make the icon larger I would change the wallpaper so that it has a white circle where the app icon is to increase contrast. Right now it is hard to see with a mostly black icon on a black background.

    Thanks for your reply! I'd never thought of increasing dose for aging beans. Sounds like it will work well for DE1.

    The muddy puck issue has me wondering if you could implement a special "dry the puck" feature by going full heat to clear the last bit of water with some steam. I don't know if the current DE1 plumbing would even allow that, but maybe a future version you could valve such that steam can be redirected to the grouphead. One issue is that users would need to first remove their cup so the flavor wouldn't be ruined. Also, if the puck gets scorched it could give off some charred smells that mess with taste, but maybe just a few seconds of steam to clear the water before charring.
