  1. Would anybody have recommendations for coffee in Las Vegas? Also will be doing a road trip down from San Fran to LA along the coastal route so will appreciate any suggestions!
  2. Make sure the vents are on the side and the air does not flow directly upwards though! not sure about this model?
  3. Alright! have a pressure gauge that is coming anyway, will try to get it returned then, might need some help then:) thanks!
  4. Updates: Decided to return the old machine, but the old one got stuck in customs for a really long time. Option is to now request for return of the machine, allowing me to get the machine at a discounted price (half price from the actual). Was thinking i could call for the return, then buy a pressure gauge and try to fix it myself. Just wondering if this is a wise idea. One question is what could this be if it is not a pressure valve problem that would be solved with turning of the screw?
  5. Most probably locked quite enough, how do i check for the dirt? Does following this tutorial for changing the gasket, and then check for any coffee grounds suffice? Thinking if there might be dirt due to choking the machine too many times.
  6. Hey guys its me again, haven't really been brewing. And haven't gotten around to changing the gasket. Just wondering if this is really a gasket problem since it is a new machine. Here is another video of the extraction: I have been looking around, and seems like the only explanation is that. However, is it possible that the gasket is not working well when the machine is new? Thanks!
  7. Any suggestions what I could use to prevent my beans from flying out? Can only roast about 50g of greens at a time because any more and it would fly out. Am using a severin 1200w popper which has side vents!
  8. Thanks for the help! Will update when its here, won't reach so quickly though:)
  9. Haha this seller makes it look so easy, just wondering if anybody had any experience using this set before over here! https://www.etsy.com/sg-en/listing/492244968/pressure-gauge-adapter-set-for-la-pavoni?ref=shop_home_active_3&crt=1 Probably will buy it and update you guys if nobody has tried:)
  10. Would love too but it costs like 1.5x the price.. Was thinking it would be the same with the pressure gauge installed right?
  11. Thanks for the help everyone! Will likely exchange it and get the pressure gauge for the next one:)
  12. Was also thinking of getting a pressure gauge to help with this modification,hoping that we could install in onto the sight glass as well. Anybody has any experience with this? Was looking at this but thinking if there was anything I could get easier. https://www.etsy.com/sg-en/listing/492244968/pressure-gauge-adapter-set-for-la-pavoni?ref=shop_home_active_3&crt=1
  13. Yep okay! Thank you for the help! Will see if my friend would be interested in doing it or returning it:) merry Christmas by the way!
  14. I see! So these are what I roughly have to do. 1. Open up the base with the 20 secure torx head. 2. Locate the same screw that I see in that other photo. 3. Turn it anti-clockwise, preferably with a pressure gauge. Is this right?
  15. Thank you so much for your help! From what I understand, seems like you just turned the screw a slight bit to adjust. Is this what coffeechap meant by "turning it anti-clockwise to open it up?". Or is that another part?
  16. This is a post 2000 model, but i see. Any rough gauge on how much to turn it by, or just go by feel?
  17. Ahh thats unfortunate! He got it somewhere online and yeah I think he could return it, but that would be sad:/ Edit: Hopefully the experts know what he could do. @coffeechap, do you recommend doing it if i am new at this machine? any guides on this?
  18. Ahhh thank you so much! Last question as he's a bit scared to spoil the new machine. From what I have read it seems like steam will stop coming out of the valve when its ready, so does that mean that the continuous steam coming out is normal while it is getting ready? Video 1: Boiling after 4 minutes - Video 2: Boiling after 7 minutes - Hopefully this is normal as well? Sorry to trouble you guys!
  19. Thanks for the quick replies guys! The lever is raised if im not wrong for the second video. He was just asking if the water flow is too fast without the portafilter. He is using a Kinu grinder! I will let him know and will post if i need more help! Thank you! Edit: another question! Is the boiler supposed to continue boiling as there is steam coming out of the valve? Is there supposed to be the pstat coming to stop this?
  20. Hey everyone! A friend of mine just got a new La Pavoni Europiccola. Tried using the machine and it looks like this! Anybody have any idea whats wrong and how to fix this? Video 1: - Is this the pressure valve not being tightened properly as I have been reading around? Video 2: - Is this water flow too fast? Or is this normal without a portafilter? Thanks in advance! Ryan
  21. Ah thank you so much for the help! Just another question, anybody knows what is wrong with this machine? Regards!
  22. I see, have you seen any guides on doing this? Also, how often do you do this?
  23. Hey guys, asking for a friend here. Does anybody have advice for maintaining a Gaggia Classic 2015 (RI 9403/11)? Since there is no 3 way valve and a spring valve instead, backflushing is out right? Is just descaling every 3 months okay? Thanks in advance
  24. Yeah but isn't the Pavoni such a beauty? Haha, leaning more towards a Pavoni currently.
