Midday lull at the espresso machine #mbfeb no. 9
Friends, it’s Friday afternoon espresso time. Join me, won’t you?
Visiting family this year was really great. There’s also nothing like that first cup of coffee in your own kitchen, the early morning after returning home. ❄️☕️
It’s super satisfying to open up this espresso machine and replace a couple of parts. This steam assembly wasn’t right, but the steam knob stem was perfect and made a huge, immediate improvement. The utterly precise fit of the components is so impressive.
Quiet coffee shop vibes this morning.
New bag of Stumptown Hairbender this morning.
I took apart my espresso machine yesterday to troubleshoot the solenoid and pump. That was a good puzzle! Especially the solenoid, which is nestled intricately beneath several other parts. After cleaning and reassembling, it seems to be working once again, for now.
