He's happy as can be and I am in espresso heaven! I have some of the Santa Lucia Costa Rican beans Josh from Transcend coffee brewed to win the National Barista Championship. Now to start pulling some godshots...good-bye sleep!

Nice combo. I also have the Silvia & Rocky, have had 'em for a few years. I went this route because I thought I might hack it w/ a PID at some point. However, I can't stomach the cost. THEN, I saw the ZPM on Kickstarter and funded it last year. Let's just say I'm still waiting for one of SEVERAL Kickstarter projects to actually ship to me. Though my Pebble should be in a month or so.
