Brewing Nicely

Brewing Nicely (4/8)



  1. Same question here; it is no longer in the website. It is one of my favourite so I hope is back soon.
  2. How did you take it off? Is it just pulling it out out? Maybe mine is not in the right position. I love the machine and is very solid except the knob made of cheap plastic.
  3. Thanks all for your replies. I do not want to overtight for the reasons given but it seams that if I do not do steam keeps coming out a bit. It is not an issue to to have some drops but not if wand keeps too warm to hold. It seams to be a wider design issue but maybe mine is a bit more.
  4. Happy New Year Forum!! I’ve being further enjoying my Elizabeth during lockdown but still having same issue that from day one. The seam valve does not seam to close properly except is I do it very strongly. Most of the time stem wand remains hot as some steam keeps coming out. How strongly do you have to close the valve? I am concerned that if I apply all the pressure needed it could break but maybe this is just normal.
  5. Thanks all, I will then leave as is. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. My Elizabeth came from factory with low brewing pressure so following help from forum members I adjusted it. Currently it brews at 10 bars; I am wondering if this is now too high and needs to be spot on 9bar. Any advice? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I also noticed some water coming from the steam wand during the day. Also when closing the tap makes a little squeaky noise. I try not to close it too strongly but if loses some water then something does not look good. The steam tap is my only complain about the Elizabeth; it is just a cheap plastic one.
  8. Thanks a lot @MediumRoastSteam I managed to fix it and and how I have 10 as pressure. Tried a shot and difference is huge now; it is late so I just tried just a little but definitely was much better. 16g in and 35 out in 26 secs; still some improvement to be made but much happier Video: https://streamable.com/wbhp8b Picture:
  9. Thanks a lot!! Do I need to take the screws off? Is this OK with warranty? Not extremely happy/impressed I need to do this myself and was not factory tested... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Interesting enough doing a backflush gets same pressure and reaches only 9. I have noticed the portafilter is a bit further 6 o’clock. Is there a way to adjust the pressure or means I need to send it back? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Grinder is an Eureka Specialita. I will try a backflush soon and report back. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Quick question, after a few days (I think will take weeks) I am yet to find the right setting. Brewing pressure is just a bit above 8; what is usually your pressure when you get a good shot? Currently I am using Rave Blend I beans; pucks seem too wet after each shoot. I assume is due to the lowish pressure. I am using 16g as advised by Lelit. Tried 17g same results.

  13. I have been doing a few espressos today and kept playing with all the options. Got a bit better shots than yesterday but still a long way to go. I have also changed to DaveUK suggested settings and tried both type of infusion but difficult for me to describe any difference. What are supposed to be the pros/cons of steam vs bloom method?
  14. thanks a lot both!! @MediumRoastSteam & @DavecUK Very informative
  15. Thanks a lot!! I changed them as per Dave's recommendation but some are big changes (e.g. KDs). Will test; I am still not getting the timing right. Also need to learn/dial in the Specialita grounder... If these settings are better I am surprised that Lelit is not using them by default or at least closer.
