After using the steamer every time I try to make espresso, more water comes from the steamer spout than from the espresso spout. I have to press the double cup button at least 3 times to fill up my espresso cup, I have to leave a cup under the steam spout to collect the water, and the espresso that comes out is purely black without the tan foam that it used to make before I started using the steamer.

mjackson ♦ Golan,

It could be you are not letting the boiler cool enough after steaming. Try making the shot first and see if that helps. If not call Cuisinart at 1-800-726-0190

I had the Cuisinart EM-100 that was giving a perfect expresso coffe with lot of "cream", but it worked for a while, and I had to return it 3 times. Now, I think that may be the company fixed the prior problems with this new machine EM-200 and if it workes OK. I will have a very good espresso coffee. The 4 revews I read are not very good. What do you think? What advise can you give me?. Thank you for your information, R.Stein

mjackson ♦ Rodolfo,

I have well went and read as many reviews as I could find. There like many machines were great and not so great reviews. I think it overall is a good machine and if there had been problems it seems to happen right away. Make sure you get it primed. If you want a machine with a pressurized portafliter that is similar I would also look at the Saeco Aroma. It has a good reputation but does not have programmble cup sizing.

Is a non-presssurized portafilter basket available for the Cuisinart EM-200? If so, where may it be purchased? Thanks.
