Reiss, just pulled my first shot using the Kafatek Monolith grinder, the beans that Denis sends with it that he tests with, and the Londinium - BEST ESPRESSO EVER! Not just bullshitting here - seriously - this is the best shot I've ever had - more depth, more color, more fullness than anything I've ever produced before, or had made for me by others.
I am wowed. Years ago when I went from my old Gaggia Classic to a real E61 HX machine and a good grinder I had a similar improvement in what I was able to produce. This time - more improvement to the point where I have far surpassed anything I have been able to make myself - or anything that has been made for me.
I'm super happy. Between the LR and the Monolith - doesn't get any better, I'm convinced!
Thank you again for all the help,
All went well and seals changed. The new shower screen is amazing, it improved the extraction as well from my current beans, and the lever is back smooth as butter. Even the coffee grinds comes out better from the basket compared to the previous even with the same 16 grams dosage, but after the new shower screen the distribution of water is amazing.
I have upped my consumption by +1 on my 5 daily shots that I have after the changes :)
By the way have I told you how much I have been enjoying the Londinium R, wow I am really loving it and it looks so nice in my kitchen. The thing that I still can't understand is how you got it so temperature stable with a heat exchanger design, I think you used some black magic and should have to answer to the church authority, lol. I have been testing it with my scace which agrees with my test buds, completely temp stable at 3min between shot intervals (haven't tested quicker then that).
