Our digital pre-infusion kit is available for LR owners in early December 2018

by Reiss Gunson on Saturday, 03 November 2018 14:48

It is easy to fit, does not look like an add-on once fitted, makes optimising the machine for your particular roast a precise no tools push of a button, and it enhances reliability

the module includes the wireless hardware from day one so customers with the skills to do so will be able to develop software to control the unit wirelessly too

in time we will build our own app for wireless control but we will not get the app to market this year

it may be worth noting that all we are doing here is taking a mechanical pressure reducing (regulating) valve and pressure gauge that you have on the water supply line to an L1/2/3 and minaturising it to fit inside the LR such that we change the pre-infusion pressure through a wide range without the need for tools or guages to check the set pressure once the change is made; we are simply bringing the capabilities of the L1/2/3 to the LR

the kit is also light and compact for international express delivery with DHL

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,

Hi Reiss

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 :)

Thanks Reiss.

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).
