  1. Thanks for your responses. I'll try the routines suggested and see how I get on. W/r to actually replacing the gaskets in the group... not sure. I bought my EP last year off of here and the gent said they were replaced fairly recently if I remember correctly. I did notice some damage on the upper piston gasket last time I looked, but I can't imagine this would effect the output, as long as the lower gasket is still fine. W/r to clean and lube, I do this every few weeks or so. One thing I had considered if the pressure. I imagine that if the pressure is too low this could mean that not as much water enters the group/displaces the air. I noticed in your thread MRS that your PSTAT was set a little low when you received it.
  2. Morning all, What sort of output are people getting using one pull (no fellini etc.) on their millenium machines with a double basket? I find myself getting ~25g from a standard single pull, this is whether I dose 12, 13, even 14 or 15gs. I've done a bit of searching online and from the small amount of info I've managed to find people seem to be getting 30g plus... Thanks, Harry
  3. The best I've ever poured, shame it's wonky.

    I just use a chocolate shaker with lid off, works fine and you can get different widths.
  7. I visited this newly opened branch of Origin this morning. I believe they first started in Cornwall but now have a number of locations in London. I've not visited one of their shops before, nor have I tried their beans. I grabbed a latte to go, it was £3.50 (I think). The service was a little slow - might just be becaue the staff are still getting used to it, not sure. They had two beans in their main grinders, not sure which I got but unfortunately the coffee didn't cut through the milk very well for my drink. I may try a cortado next time. Origin are using the new La Marzocco Modbar espresso machines - I think one of the first shops in the UK to do so. I'll visit again for sure - probably when I need beans as, if you buy a pack of beans the coffee is free.
  8. I think he recommended not to take the feld 2 apart. Just to loose the burrs a lot and clean through the gap, which is what I've been doing although could get it cleaner if apart. Unsure why the burrs would be loose, from what I can tell its a fairly simple design. Have you tried stripping it down and and rebuilding?
  9. Reduced to £85 - desperate to avoid using a courier.
  10. Thanks for the responses - glad to hear I didn't mess something up. Reason I was questioning it is as I've seen videos on YouTube where people just lift the lever up with one hand, with little difficulty. Having read more online sounds like this may be due to worn seals. Thanks again, Harry
  11. If it's just part of the design then fair enough, I just figured it doesn't seem right is all.
  12. Hey all, Just stripped my new 2nd hand pavoni, gave it a good clean and replaced some seals copying videos on YouTube re seal placement etc. I have a weird issue with the lever action. When off and cold the lever is very smooth up and down. When up to temp, it feels like I'm fighting some sort of pressure to lift the lever up, and the lever wants to "spring" back down. Does any one know what may be causing this? Thanks, Harry
