How much was the unit and installation? Not looking to plumb in but rather use it as normal drinking solution.
I canít recall. But for drinking can just go with the aqua pure series. Separate tap for drinking. But honestly unless you have a huge family a simple under tap solution like a torayvino or cleansui is more than enough. Just ensure the filters have nsf or equivalent rating.

Yes I find cleansui the cleanest tasting. But the cartridges sure are expensive!

Had a Brita but itís HB forums have mentioned that itís not suitable for machines.
I presume both pitcher and tap models are about the same?

My guess is yes. Pitcher is more portable if u use it around the office.

HB forum ppl if they from states, Brita is not suitable. Water alot harder and Brita will not filter all the minerals. I have a TDS meter and readings is ~100+, the drop is 20+ pts.
I buy bottle water for my machine and reading on those is under 30; Reverse Osmosis readings usually low at <25.

Different .. SSP burrs for mazzer are based on the K30 design.. SSP burrs quality are on another level.. I was using their burrs for my mazzer mini too... A big jump over the stock burrs. Highly recommended most bang for buck ugrade I feel.home barista forum has a guy reviewing it currently with taste and extraction yield findings.

Is it your first roaster? Any previous roasting experience? The capacity is really small for this roaster.

Yeah u are correct, it won't work in USA because the water there is really hard.

I've done a water hardness test, my water hardness is approximately 60+ ppm out of the tap, it's actually considered moderately hard.

My Brita which was used for 6 months reduced to 51.3 but a new filter reduced to 8.55.
Not sure how many litres or how long before the brita loses its effect.

Expensive imho; capacity of 50gm you will have roast freq or do few batches at a time.

Drop SSP a email, the guy is very responsive, if there is a healthy demand for it most probably he is already making it. http://www.sspgrind.com/

Yes his website is this http://www.sspgrind.com/ , buy from him directly, third party resellers tend to mark up quite alot.

Most of the communication is via email with SSP, he has not really set up a proper website for online shopping yet.
