  1. Hi guys and gals, I'm looking for some advice and I'm sorry if this has been covered before. I did search but couldn't find the exact information I was looking for. I recently received my Mara X and I'm delighted with it. Its my first prosumer machine so I'm a total newbie with this kind of thing. I live in the Highlands of Scotland so the water is very soft. No limescale on my kettle at all and it's over two years old. With this in mind I wondered what sort of back flush and cleaning regime I should run? I purchased some Puly Caff with the machine but not sure if I need to
  2. Hello all, For over 10 years I have owned, and been rather happy with, an unmodified Gaggia classic. It started producing pretty tasty shots once I understood temperature surfing. Moreover, I appreciate the relatively compact footprint in my (not huge) kitchen. During this time I have been through a few grinders and have ordered a Niche which should be arriving in November. I don't drink a huge amount of coffee, probably 1 espresso based drink per day when working in the office but higher when working from home and at weekends. A fortunate set of circumstances have left me with
  3. @MediumRoastSteamgot me thinking about my first proper machine and gave me a lot to ponder. I realised how much coffee really is a passion of mine, and I am prepared to spend double my original budget to get a machine that will last a long time! I have ordered a Niche Zero but it's not due until December. I love the history of the E61 Group Head, and my research has lead me to the Lelit MaraX. Also, when I first saw it on the Lelit site, my gut said yes. I have looked into the required cleaning and maintenance and am ready to care for it properly. I also like the fact I can make
  4. Hi All, Had a MaraX now for nearly a month now and noticed small ‘green’ spots on the e61 mushroom and on the threads. Also, the hot water tap has slight corrosion and I’m not sure but is discolouration on the shower dispersion screw normal ? Pictures attached hopefully. It’s not good enough but I’m currently using Brita filtered tap water and the Lelit in tank softener but currently looking at getting an Osmio Zero. I live in Nottinghamshire and the Severn Trent water report says the water here is hard (around 250 mg/L). I borrowed a water tester from work today and t
  5. What? This easy mod is to re-rout the water discharged from the over pressure valve (OPV) so that instead of being dumped in the drip tray and wasted, it will get reused in the machine. The mod is easy, cheap, invisible and completely reversible. Why? One of the very few complaints about the Mara X is that it dumps the OPV discharge water to the drip tray. Re-routing will (a) reduce water waste; (b) reduce the water that ends in the drip tray. This results in less need to fill the tank and less emptying of the tray. How much water will be saved? Is this worth doing? The amount
