  1. 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
  2. I wish there was a service in UK that fits PIDs and other upgrades for a payment to Silvia's. Probably because there is no demand you may say. I have a new Silvia and wouldn't attempt a PID or gauges etc. I'm no engineer! And especially after reading the problems experienced here.
  3. 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
  4. Hi guys, I'm new here - looking for info related to PID control on Rancilio Silvia. I'm considering an Arduino controller, so any input is appreciated.
  5. Hi all, As per the title I am very keen to PID my Silvia and trying to make sure I have considered all the options. From my research so far some options covered in previous posts seem to have been discontinued and new options are coming out with broader application but less reviews so I am finding this a bit tricky. The options currently seem to be: Auber kit - US based, seems expensive for what it is but probably the least hassle to install / configure. Benefit of a specific display but not everyone likes the look. MeCoffee - EU based, cheaper and at least as capable/ easy
  6. Has anyone tried the MeCoffee PID controller from the Netherlands? (Just put MeCoffee in your search engine to find the site) I'm looking to upgrade from my much modded Gaggia Classic (Auber PID, Vibiemme pressure gauge, IMS shower plate) to a Rancilio Silvia. Which I will need to mod to a similar spec, and the MeCoffee (with the MeBarista Android app) looks like a better option than the Auber. It has more control, including pump pressure, and looks like an easier install! With some experimenting, it seems this could produce better and better shots. Any thoughts, experience of this setu
