    I can now see 1 benefit of volumetric, which I didn't know about at the time of choosing machine.

    Popcorn and naked portafilter have something in common. I don't know what it is, but something magical, hypnotic and therapeutic.

    Number of times I've burnt my popcorn in the frying pan, because it wanted to see 1 more 'pop'.

    Number of times my shot went beyond optimum, because I was mesmerised by the beautiful stripes flowing out of the naked pf and lost track of the weight shown on the scale or the second on the shot timer..

    If I had the volumetric, I could fully submerge myself in the gazing of the beautiful flow without keeping one eye on something else!

    Maybe I'm a weirdo, but I enjoy the watching as much as the drinking ☺

    I do man I do.....

    Is on list if I ever upgrade. It just seems a bit silly to go from mechanika profi to electronika.

    And ecm have confirmed they don’t intend to make a synchronika with volumetrics :-(

    Hahaha! I recognise that symptom. I first got a naked portafilter to check up on my distribution (and make space for scales between cup and drip tray). Inevitably you check each shot to see how the bottom of the basket wets, and hope for a lovely central striped pour. On the occasions it doesn't go according to plan, you get a Kaldi's arrow in the eye (my word for a well-aimed spritz) or you find yourself trying to 'will' that little dry spot in the middle of the basket to join in the fun before you have to kill the shot - it can get quite exciting in a silly kind of way, the race against the clock/scales!

    I've burnt popcorn too...

    Jewel that is a real thing you describe amongst us coffee hippies, I've lost count of the amount of times I've said to my wife "quick honey come over here" to watch that thick brown nectar ha ha coffee porn lol. Glad none of my work colleagues can read this lol.

    Ha ha I’m happy to stay as I am Deansie - probably a grinder sometime in 2018 though that will be it.

    I do like to talk about it though so threads like this is a good place ;-)
