  1. John, how did the leak present itself to your customer? What were the signs?
  2. Are you happy with the steaming from the MicroCasa or the LP? Then you might consider keeping one for steaming and get a Strietman CT2 for you espresso, it's an open boiler and no overheating. You can do back to back shots, if you have multiple baskets. You can be up to temperature in 7 minutes. Just a thought.
  3. The mirrored panel can be purchased separately.....https://decentespresso.com/cart?show=all
  4. Mitch (CwD) at HB has successfully used a centrifuge instead of filters.
  5. Flushing and wiping the screen will not clean the fines that get to the back of the screen. Remove the screen and clean it separately.
  6. I have both. The shaker is larger and sized to fit a 58mm basket. The tumbler is smaller and has an opening that will sit on both a 50mm and a 58mm basket. The shaker negates the need for WDT.
  7. Thanks, now I see what your referring to, since the heating is done on continuous flow of water perhaps the dip may be due to the water present between the heater and the grouphead.
  8. The temperature probe in the group head is located in an orifice through the distribution plate, just behind the shower screen, not in the slurry. The group is electrically preheated to brew temperatures so no dip.
  9. Sorry to hear that John.
  10. If you go to their web site the price should appear in the local currency.
  11. Suggest you join the Decent Diaspora community, as well.
  12. Since you're interested in espresso only and you are also interested in profiling, have you considered a Strietman CT-1. It's an open boiler machine and a manual lever, which puts you in complete control of pulling a shot.
  13. Flow is the independent variable and pressure is the dependent variable.
