  1. Hi all, Been doing some reading on water flow / debit from the group and wanted to see if this is related to pressure in some way. So I ran three 30 second runs without portafilter and all were in the 186-189ml range. This is on my 2018 (2015 model) Classic. Does this flow rate equate to a defined pressure of the pump in any way?
  2. Hi I have just a few questions please i have been experimenting for the 1 week that I have owned my Sage DB and newly aquired Mazzer SJ. Yesterday I received from Redber my first proper beans. Now my question: I dosed my PF with exactly the same amount of coffee I tamped exactly the same My Mazzer was set on pretty much the finest BUT no coffee came out of the PF and it went to 9.5 bar Am I right in thinking that this is due to too fine. The shower screen is clean and no holes blocked in PF i then tried a slightly courser adjustment and I then got a slow ca
  3. Hi This is my first post, so please excuse my lack of technical expertise. I have had a 'New' Baby Gaggia since 2004. I believe it is the 2002 model, silver plastic body, four square push-in buttons along the top. I noticed a bit of a problem with the flow last year, bought some Gaggia descaler and that seemed to do the trick. However, the problem has re-occurred. I have de-scaled again and tried back-flushing twice. Still struggles to produce the usual amount of coffee. However, the crema is still good and the pressure through the steam wand is fine. I have noticed quite a lot of ba
  4. Hi, I've a little gem, and the flow rate through the group head seems very slow. Both the hot water tap and the steam wand seem fine, so I'm kinda suspecting it's not a scale problem (and we're in a soft water area anyway). It's been backflushed fairly regularly, although perhaps not as often as ideal, and I've taken the shower screen and the dispersion plate off and given them a good soak in puly caff - still doesn't seem right. I've had a quote for a front end service from Fracino, but it seems a little spendy - Anyone have any suggestions?
  5. Can anyone enlighten me please on the effect of exchanging a 'standard' gicleur for a finer one? I believe that E61 machines normally come fitted with either a 0.6 or 0.8mm gicleur, but that 0.5mm is considered to be better. In what way is it better, and if it is indeed better, why aren't machines supplied fitted with a smaller gicleur in the first place? I am aware that the gicleur influences the flow rate of the brew water through the group but what in practical terms of pulling a shot would be the effect of reducing it? Machine is Quick Mill Verona... I'd be interested to kn
  6. Hi CoffeeForumers, I have a Dualshit DCM2 that my Dad gave me when it stopped working. It just made a horrendous sound when switched on and primed. In fact it didn't prime at all, trying three times before giving up. Very loud. I believe this to be because there was no water getting to the pump. I thought maybe the pump was on its last legs. So, I stripped it down to get to the pipework. I cleaned out all the pipes with stiff wire and vinegar. Reassembled the device and started it up. Sucess! I now get steam and hot water at good pressure and flow rate from the milk frother wand bu
  7. Hi All I've just move (up, I hope!) from a Gran Gaggia to a Gaggia Classic. The Classic is second hand, but barely used used, I'm told - that seems to be borne out by the general condition of the machine and the only slight staining of the filter holder, though the shower disc was a bit yucky. I gave it a descale and cleaned the group head, filter holder and shower disc with Puly Caffe. The problem I seem to have is with the water flow rate - much faster than the Gran and much faster tha what appears to be the accepted norm. This is despite using Whittard espresso grind (much finer t
