I got through it all by not losing my cool and turning it into a kind of running joke along the lines of what else could potentially go wrong !

hey mate, thought you were doing full-timeconsulting now... what's the name/location of the new cafe?

Does the fact that it goes OK for an hour or so: it fill, heats, makes a cup of coffee etc. mean anything? I would have thought a short would blow the fuse immediately. This seems to be something that is happening over the length of an hour or so and then only to one group!

Metal expands with heat so I suppose it’s possible
My gut feeling is - the culprit is a micro switch possibly connected in thermostat area controlling the on off sequence of the heating element

Same advice applies clean electronics and connections first
If that does not solve the issue, you may have a short or debris on a contact causing a short

Something out of left field - a board may have a bad track or debris causing a short

that one time when the departing chef sabotages the kitchen by putting all the perishables in the freezer and the cafe is so busy that every seat inside and out is full and there's a cue from the cash register out the door and you've got 10 coffee dockets up and only 2 staff on including yourself and the waitress is in tears coz shes got five juices and 2 smoothies to make and the chef is in tears coz everything is frozen and half the menu is unavailable and the EFTPOS craps out because of the Telstra outage and staff from another store are punching on out the front because I don't know why and I offer them free wine to calm them down and your vegan bro and his mrs turn up and want to know what's good to eat and everything on the menu has butter in it because France

Interesting
Had heard of this, but thought it was a very small part of the population
As for me - I’m happy to say that I don’t have any taste issues

Thought the below article on the topic of thermal tasting was interesting. Led me to think about the implications it may have had on cupping scores etc.

Political instability is obviously a huge problem too, but when you’re facing the issues mentioned above it’s no great surprise really.
