mjackson ♦ Norman,
It will take a 54 mm tamper that it will work best with. I hope this helps and it is a good value for a starter machine and you should enjoy it.

Are the filter baskets included with this machine pressurized or dual walled at all? Or are they normal baskets?

mjackson ♦ Andrew,

It is a pressurized system which will give you good shots easily regardless of the grind.It is a good starter machine and is easy to use. I hope this helps.

The frothing wand has "fallen out" of my machine. Is there somewhere out there where I can find a repair manual so I can fix my machine. I am assuming I will need to purchase the frothing wand as well.

Hi,

I have just received a Cuisinart EM-100 as a gift and would like to lower the temperature at which the "water heating" light sets off.
I live in Santa Fe New Mexico and the boiling point of water here is about 8 degrees lower than at sea level.
The effect is that as I operate the machine to make an expresso, after the heating light has gone out, the water comes into the cup as mainly steam which kills the crema. I believe the setting must be set around 204 degrees F which is boiling point here.
Is it possible to adjust the temperature to a lower setting to work at this altitude (7000 ft ASL)

Regards,
Ian Norrish

ToddS Ian, there is no way to set the temperature lower. But you can lower the brew temperature by doing a little "temperature surfing". Load your coffee into the portafilter as you always do but before you put the the Portafilter back into the machine turn on the brewing switch. You will the steam come out of the brew group at first and then it will turn into just water. When it does you know that you are below the boiling temperature at your elevation. Then quickly turn off the brew switch, place the portafitler back into the machine and turn the brew switch back on. It sounds like a lot of work but it only takes a few extra seconds the quality of your espresso will be much better. Remember the longer you run the pump before you brew the cooler the brewing temperature will be. If it starts to taste sour then you know that your brew temperature is to low.
