    Yeap! And it was under the hot water spout, not the steaming wand. I just emptied abit of water from the spout and the issue seems to have settled. Will keep a close eye on it

    Does anyone get abit of a wet spot under the hot water wand? I seem to find one when leaving the machine for a little longer than usual, ie one hour ++

    Yeap similar to the above. I find that my first drop usually hits around 12 sec mark, and my total time for lighter roasts can sometimes reach 50 secs or so. Has anyone here added one of the flow profile kits to their machine yet? would like to know if its a worthwhile investment

    How much does the temperature fluctuate when the machine is left on for few hours? I see that the steam pressure varies from. 75 to 2 bars when left idle for some time. Do I wait till it's 0.75 bars before brewing?

    Bit of a blurry photo, but does everyone's stock basket come looking like this? I've only just changed over to an IMS today so can't wait to see the difference
  8. Just chiming in here. I upgraded from a barista express to a Mara X recently and love it. I know looks don't always matter, but it's just pleasing pulling a shot on this via the e61 lever. I've got it connected via a smart plug which makes life convenient, and there's always a possibility of adding the Bianca kit to it in the future if you play around with a lot of lighter roasts
  9. Just wondering if you managed to get this fixed?

    I usually go 18g on my double baskets, with an extraction time of about 40 secs from pulling the lever. This seems to work well for the current mid to lighter roasts im using. Tried the triple basket yesterday and timing was off. Do you then split the shots on these?
  11. The pressure thing does happen in my machine. Seems to start close to 10 and drops to about 9.5 bars most of the time. Don't really have an answer to the leak. Hope someone else here chimes in on that

    What scales are everyone using on this? I've got mine that hangs abit over the drip tray and that might be causing abit more vibrations and louder noise when brewing.

    Coming from a single boiler machine I've never really thought about this until Just 5 mins ago. Is anyone here brewing and steaming at the same time on the Mara x? I know you're probably only saving 30 secs or so, but just trying to figure out the best work flow on this. I guess that also depends on how quick the steam boost kicks in once the lever is engaged.
  14. I must say the first video you put up doesn't look bad at all. Maybe just a tad quick, but all depends on taste I guess? What does everyone think of the timing of shots? With the slow preinfusion buildup, are you aiming for a longer brew time compared to previous machines? (ie if the same beans are 25 secs output on a prev machine, aiming for 30 secs or so on the Mara?) I'm currently dialing in a set of beans which I've never tried before, so it's abit hard to judge
  15. Interestingly just came across this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9zX9l5WVJA So it seems that at 24 mins it shows that it is ready to go although the steam pressure is sitting at 2.5 bars .
