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?
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.
