I found that after about 6 cups, the filter completely plugs. The filters aren't designed to be taken apart to clean. How do I restore them to operate?

If you would like to know a little about the many types of espresso machines we sell, this would be a good video to get you started. This video covers the machines we sell and based on your lifestyle, what you like to drink, and ease of use. It will give you an overview of different espresso machines and help you determine which one best suits to your needs.
I would watch the video and focus on a particular kind of machine—prosumer, semi-automatic, and super-automatic to decide which kind is ideal for you. Then, you can go and look at individual models to get a better idea of exactly what you want. Of course, if you narrow it down to a few espresso machines and are still undecided, give us a call and we would be glad to help!

Can you tell me if this item has a pressurized portafilter? Do you have any feedback on this machine? In the $200-$250 price point, what semi-auto machine would you recommend. I was looking at the Gaggia machines, but had some concerns about the plastic housing on the Pure and others. I also looked at the Delonghi 702. Your input is appreciated.
