Well aware of the thread, was just curious how it relates to the Giotto specifically and how users go through their "motions"
:)

I realize a lot of the machines out there are similar and tend to overlap, hence the reason for starting this thread.

This thread makes it hard to organize different discussions that people might want to have about the Giotto since it is one continous stream.  I would definitely be intersted in a separate group.  I would suggest creating a group either on YahooGroups on or GoogleGroups.

I'm already spending too much time at coffeegeek... I'd be happy to know about other places (Yahoo, etc.) but I wouldn't likely go there much when I can rub ALL my coffee fetishes here.

The Baratza Vario thread (here, under Grinders) is now up to about 600 messages and still useful.  IMO we Giotto owners have a long way to go before our thread becomes unmanageable.

That said, I hope the gods of coffeegeek are watching and thinking about ways to address mike_macchiato's point.  Sometimes finding stuff here requires an extra cup of coffee.  Or two.

Very cool jacobkoski, like it was made for it.

You've already seen the obvious parallel, though, in comparing it to a toilet valve, and considered what a mess there would be if the valve started to leak (even though that does look like a lifetime valve... sweet).  

Good luck finding a solution to that risk which is as elegant as the first part of your project.

Thank you very much. I am currently working on a solution and I hope it works... your right though elegance is not an easy thing when working with larger diameter drain pipes/tubes. I'll stay in touch.

clockwiser for increasing the temp.

Here is a helpful link Click Here (www.youtube.com) it is a video about changing the temp.

Hope this helps.

jacobkoski and/or JNichol, assuming that you have increased or intend to increase your pressure, what is your goal?

My machine peaks just barely at one bar, actually a needle's-width below one bar.  It drifts slowly (I've insulated my boiler) down to approximately .75-.80  bar.  (I'm guessing at that, haven't looked carefully in a while.)  Then the heater kicks on and brings it back up to one bar in 15 seconds or so.

It provides plenty of steam for my production, which is usually one or two big double-shot lattes with 6-12 oz of milk.  Are you needing more steam than that?

Hi Boyscout,

My machine is set at 1.1bar. I believe they come stock at a higher presure. I don't do too many milk drinks so I am not concerned about steam presure although there is more than enough. It was adjusted on a recomendation for Flushing etc... i am happy with it.
