  1. Hello, You all should see this: https://mecoffee.nl/blog/the-straw-which-broke-me-and-mecoffees-back/#comment-1426 Take care, Portafiltre
  2. Hi everyone, A couple of weeks ago I had a mishap with my Mecoffee Pid, which sadly resulted in the melting of what I believe to be the switching transistor (though I might be totally wrong, see pics attached). I've tried contacting Mecoffee, to no avail. My only remaining options are either to go for another PID with a better heatsink on the chips, or try a cheaper solution, which would simply mean replacing the melted chip and crossing my fingers that it would pop back to life.... However, since the chip is kinda FUBAR, I can't read the serial number, and there are hardly any
  3. so i have a Silvia and a meCoffee PID. a couple of days ago it just stopped working. i have the power led on, but brew buttons and steam buttons don't do anything. hot water button is working. has someone else encountered such a problem? send 2 emails to Jan but no answer and that's frustrating... please advice.
  4. I had to turn the power off and my MeCoffee has not coped with it. It does not heat the boiler and does not properly connect to my iOS device. Interestingly when I turn the power off again the app does fire a notification that the device is out of range so it isn't completely fried. Unless anyone has any idea how to kick it back into life I am going to have to remove it. Unfortunately the MeCoffee website is down so the instructions are not available. Does anyone have a copy they can share? It is going to be a challenge to rewire without them! Thanks
  5. The replacement device I got about a month ago has now failed in exactly the same way as the first. Awaiting a response from the supplier
  6. so i have installed a meCoffee PID in my Silvia. quite nice feature set delivering, can't imagine my espresso machine without it, to be honest. BUT lately strange things are happening. 1. once in a week (maybe in a week and a half) during my brew process i hear the 3way valve (?) clicking, and afterwards a lot more water coming out the basket. thus, my espresso shot is kinda ruined. trying to make another shot right afterwards - no problem, perfect shot without this behavior. and so, till next week or something. 2. today was first time it occurred, but basically i hi t the brew butt
  7. I've been a happy http://meCoffee.nl PID user since a year ago. As of a few weeks ago, it seems my meCoffee has died (more on that below) and despite several attempts to contact meCoffee through email and their contact form, I've had no reply. Does anyone know if they are still in business, or a better way to contact them? Failing that, can anyone recommend an alternative PID that is as simple to install and doesn't require making permanent mods to my Silvia? And just in case someone recognises this as an issue with something other than the PID… The problem On the day
  8. New thread because new issue. PID unit has failed (fuse issue, apparently affects a small number of units) - replacement on the way. Here's a heads-up in case anyone else encounters the problem. Monday, pulled a shot and then: - No pilot light when switching to steam - No pump action for steaming - No water through group head using brew switch, although pump was running - Plenty of water through steamer when using hot water switch I assumed blocked 3-way, so disassembled, descaled, reassembled, no effect. Started to wonder whether the PID controller was the cause
  9. This looks like a promising competitor to the Auber; has anybody here tried it yet? I was seriously considering an Auber for my new Silvia (installed by the vendor), but this new one from mecoffe ( http://mecoffee.nl ) has several advantages like BT, controlled by a smartphone/tablet app by mebarista ( http://mecoffee.nl/mebarista/ ), hidden inside chassis and cheaper! The only downside I find at the moment is that it does not support iOS, only android, and I am an iOS user. I have not been able to find much about it online as far as reviews.
  10. This the the PID from https://mecoffee.nl - it's an outfit in Groningen, Netherlands. Key features - no display, but an app instead; control of water and steam temp, some control of pressure, pre infusion options and a timer (not shot timer - on-off timer). €119 for the kit + €10 for delivery. I ordered from their site, delivered in less than a week (would have been quicker, but they were waiting for delivery of PCBs. Good communications, a plus point in itself. All settings are controlled by an app (meBarista) over Bluetooth - Android or Chrome - no IOS version yet (IOS Bluetooth li
