How to convert the pressure of a manometer to temperature?

As I explained briefly in my previous article (which explains how to recover the pressure of extraction on a lever machine), it is possible to know the water temperature of a boiler by measuring the water pressure. Example of a double pressure gauge found in some coffee machines. Top: boiler pressure, bottom: pressure during extraction.… Continue reading How to convert the pressure of a manometer to temperature?

Controlling and understanding the water pressure in your coffee machine is important in order to successfully extract it. This parameter is completely controlled on automatic machines while it is less on a manual machine such as the Pavoni. Some knowledge can help to better understand and better control the water pressure when using the Pavoni… Continue reading Measure and understand the pressure on a Pavoni

You will discover that trivial practices of everyday life can have a much more serious impact than we think. The subjects will not necessarily talk about coffee as such. For example, we… Continue reading Ecology Coffee: Opening a series of articles
