Piccino owners.

Recommended Posts

I collect my new Piccino, "the little one" on Monday, I'm sure it will be an improvement on the Baby that has given me remarkable service for what seems like years.

 

Would the current Piccino owners like to share any tips, things to watch out for and techniques to use to make my transition smooth and worry free.

I'd order the single hole steam tip, easier to control :)

If you're having bland coffee I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but my beans ain't one. Yeah.

I struggled with a bit of a leak for a while from straight out of the factory - didn't happen all the time but enough to frustrate me - thought it was related to dose, grind and all sorts of other things. I eventually got round to emailing Fracino themselves who were very helpful and the problem was solved by changing the filter washer. I'm sure others who bought at the same time as me on here had the same problem (not a big one) but might be worth looking out for. A clue might be the position of the filter holder handle, if it goes much past 6:00....

 

Enjoy it though! I've had a lot of fun with mine :)

Yeah the 8.5mm circular rubber seal thing above the shower screen and locking plate - the Fracino guy called it a filter washer in his email, my understanding of terminology isn't great, sorry. I do know I've had no leak since changing it though, either when making the coffee or backflushing.

 

I also know its spare part FC104 on here: http://www.fracino4u.com/spare-parts-c8

Bump.

 

New Piccino user here. Has anyone got any further tips to add?

Does the single hole steam tip help creating microfoam?
