After the old forum software breaking in a way that we were unable to fix, we've migrated the site to a new platform.

Some elements aren't working as we'd hoped - some avatars didn't survive the transition, and we're still having issues with attachments that weren't added as inline images, but we're hoping to have that all sorted out soon.

Smart profiling on a lever machine

edited January 1970 in Espresso Machines
Hi everyone

interested to know if anyone of you cool people with a lever had ever considered purchasing something like this to totally impress yourself and friends with real-time pressure-profile monitoring:

It's kinda got me drooling over a lever and being able to nerd out big time with espresso making  ;D

Thanks, Dan

  • Wouldn’t work on my machine from the looks. Would work on the pavoni but it’s hardly ideal given the machine is subject to huge temperature instability.
  • Hi Brett, thanks for that. Do you have another lever in addition to the La Pavoni? ... just sneaking a look at your signature listings A friend of mine has been considering a La Pavoni as a means to get into the lever world, with its compact size being a big plus for him. So temperature stability is a bit of an issue? Can this be managed with cooling flushes or other tricks? A bit off topic I know ... but what's its steaming ability like? Thanks, Dan
  • Ah... lol... yes...  better update that. I have a Quickmill Achille that was tamed/set-up by a brilliant tech here in Brisbane. Despite receiving a green-light for upgrades nothing short of a Slayer enthuses me to move beyond this unit! Even then servicing the Slayer scares the hell out of me because access to qualified service personnel here in Brisbane is a bit of a joke! My regular guy is a brilliant fellow and would have no issues with these types of machines but he’s a very busy retiree so I’ve become adept at changing piston seals, steam wand seals, capacitors etc. on a slayer or equivalent I’d be slayed!

    It’s at a mate’s place! He loved the thermal stability and I wanted a change was all!
  • That is good, I thought you may have off loaded it.

    Oh I have... it’s his now! I fell in love with the Lever! I do miss it but I have no room for another machine!

    Ohhhhhh. I am sure she is being appreciated. I was thinking of going lever after coming to terms with not being able to make a Controvento fit but I decided that my car is looking a bit tired and it is probably time to do something about that rather than replacing coffee machines that don't need replacing  :'(
