I just added the V3 2009 maker to my kitchen. All stock, no PID yet and just temp surfing for now.
I've reduced the stock brew pressure from the OPV. So far, I'm satisfied as the beans I've used is forgiving.
I'm trying to look at other members videos that feature Ristretto style shots using only Silvia to use as a baseline for comparisons, as many of you have probably tuned your shots for optimal performance.
Updated: Pull is slightly tighter, but the flow can be smoother. Going tighter will cause the flow to become longer or my grinder is the bottleneck. Here is my current unit in action. Take note this is a Ristretto style extraction completed in 25 secs -- yielding ~ .75 oz. It may appear lighter in the video, but is actually darker in person. It is probably the Florescent light. My video
Here is one guy's Espresso shot which looks very great! The flow is steady and very rich dark in cream. However, this person may have replaced his stock pump with a rotary pump. Does anyone have a video they can share that is better or similar in quality to his? Apparently this guy is either selfish or what, but he doesn't want to share detailed information on his setup, but is willing to show the performance and exterior. Hopefully this is not the case, and this person is just very busy. :) His video Thanks in advance!
