If I recall (this is a couple of years old) We did a couple runs when making the video.  I think the second try was a bit smoother so we used that.  Both inflated easily with the floor pump. Taking the tire out of the package and unfolding it helps to take some of the fold imperfections out and helps with the seeding.  I have also found on more difficult tires using a little bit of soapy water in a spray bottle will allow the tire to slip up onto the rim a bit better.

Best Personal Espresso Grinder?  Looking for opinions on what are the best grinders.  I make a few cups of espresso every day and currently have a la cimbali jr grinder.  I feel like I cannot always seem to get truly dialed in grind esp with more oily beans.

Thanks - Not sure that we can get the  Mahlkonig Home Vario and I feel like I have heard similar thoughts about Baratza.. which is why I have not gone that direction.  I don't mind going with an espresso only grinder as I have an old Capresso Burr Grinder for the occasional french press days.

After a few months with the +Pebble I really miss all the functionality of my MotoACTV .. My wishes for the next version... more watch band options, an option for an extended battery and a chelsea proof screen (Read I am hard on my watches... ) - Please give us a MotoActv 2.0!

I have a Breville Dual Boiler machine and really love the machine aside from the steam output.  Does anyone know any tweaks to increase the steam output?  If not, recommendation for a next upgrade?

How temperature stable is the new Breville Dual Boiler? Would you believe more temperature stable than even a La Marzocco GS/3? I'm not kidding. I had to type out these numbers for an email I sent, so I'll repeat them here. From my Sunday testing session o the Breville Dual Boiler:


Recovery tests:
Pull 25 second shot; pause 30 seconds between shots, measure temperature at 15 second point for each shot. Remove the scace'd portafilter between each shots. Do test for five shot pulls. Programmed machine temperature is 201F. Remove portafilter (with scace) from the grouphead between shots.

Measured Temperatures: 1) 201.7F; 2) 201.4F; 3) 201.4F; 4) 201.1F; 5) 201.4F.

Average Shot Temperature Test
Measuring the temperature average across a 25 second shot, starting measurement at 10 seconds in.

Test parameters: insert Scace'd portafilter, starting temperature above 175F for each measurement test (the PF comes up to temperature quick in a fully hot groupehad). 25 second shot pull. Programmed machine temperature is 201F. Commence Fluke temperature measuring at 10 seconds in, hold (on fluke) at 25 seconds. Pause of about 2 minutes between measurements. Record average, minimum and maximum temperatures for each shot pull between 10-25 seconds.

Test 1: Avg: 200.5F; Min: 199.6F, Max: 201.2F
Test 2: Avg: 201.2F; Min: 199.8F, Max: 201.8F
Test 3: Avg: 200.7F; Min: 199.7F, Max: 201.4F
Test 4: Avg: 200.6F; Min: 199.5F, Max: 201.0F* (held 201 for at least 7 seconds)
Test 5: Avg: 201.1F; Min: 200.0F, Max: 201.5F

Bottom line - this Breville Dual Boiler is really stable - actually a bit more stable than the GS/3 tests I ran some time ago. I blame this success on the Breville's PID controlled grouphead thermostat.

Today's shot and latte... The crema is like an inch deep... must be the ridiculously fresh @CopperDoorCof. My milk was a tad foamy... but was still wonderful!
