  1. Well that eliminates a lever machine for the ship. 1) Most crew never follow safety warnings. 2) I don’t want the additional paperwork. Already have to do method statements and risk assessments. 3) I’d look ridiculous wearing all the appropriate PPE just to make an Espresso 😂 Thankfully you only got a fright and no Injuries 😎
  2. Smaller than the minima. Dual boiler? knobs generic, mini minima ? oh do tell 🤔
  3. Probably bean related 1) grind 2) bean freshness and type

  9. Running 8 3/4 bar at present fitted a new pump and set it to 9 bar I thought dialed in the grinder with some local roasted Ethiopian beans and WoW mega best espresso to date, then noticed whilst pulling a shot pump sitting on 8 3/4 bar so I’ve left alone at least till these beans are finished.

  12. I must have missed that bit on the Minima “rapid pressure ramp up” I checked out [email protected] extensive tests both beta and production machines not once did he mention that or was anything like what you describe demonstrated in the videos of the Minima pulling shots. One of us is confused maybe me.
