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