You bet, very happy to have received such prompt and qualified help. I just made a cortado for myself and a latte for the wife, and she gave it a 9+ (out of 10). So quality is consistently high now. There's also even flow from both sides of the portafilter, so extraction looks much better.

Then you have made some real progress. It is a good machine and I plan to mod my Oscar to have more of its features. If you have the time you should post a video on youtube, showing your whole routine. I had trouble finding one when I looked for you. I am sure it would be helpful to new Musica owners out there to see what you do to get a good shot. I don't know why the company doesn't do that for each model of machine they make. That would cost them almost nothing and seeing something in action is better for learning how to use it than reading badly written instructions.
