    Anyone heard of this yet? Cremina pressure profiling kit

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Noticed this on HB, I've always wondered if there was anyway to measure piston pressure on a lever and this hungarian guy at naked-portafilter.com has done it, struggling to find any talk of it on coffee snobs. Any thoughts from the lever snobs?

    Just looking at the various options, one would have to think that this could be completed at home for less cost and the use of a wider range of available hardware...

    If not at home, then I'm sure that Coffee Machinist could do a great job for the same sort of money...

    I think it's a fantastic idea. There is definitely tangible merit in being able to read & control the brew pressure, based on my experience with Rossa PG.

    On surface it seems like lots of coin for the kit. But looking at it more closely, it's no easy feat to put together a kit like that! Something that is easy enough to be retrofitted by owners without sending the entire machine in. Making sure there's no leak & fits perfectly on different machines as far back from 1960s. Not to mention you have to drill a through-hole across the lengthy stainless steel rod, which is notorious for being tough to machine. No one in the right mind would choose to do that I think!

    I just need to find a Cremina for the kit!
