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?

Sanfam ♦ Unfortunately, we aren't nearly as familiar with the Espressione products as we are with most others--they're all supported directly by the manufacturer's authorized servicer. Their name is Electra Craft, and they can be reached by phone at 201-439-1700.

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.

Mike Russo ♦ Anthony...Thank you for interest in the Espressione Café Minuetto. Yes, the Espressione Café Minuetto does come with a pressurized basket standard. Although I have not sold any of these machines yet (so I have no feed back from customers), let me say I have had a chance to do some testing in our testing area. The Espressione Café Minuetto I have found works very well, producing hot espresso and steaming milk very easy. In the $250 price range I would suggest you look at the Gaggia Pure. I would not worry so much about the Gaggia Pure housing being made from plastic, because the Plastic is a heavy duty ABS plastic and the housing does not effect espresso quality. Keep in mind the the Commercial Heavy Chrome plated Brass portafilter and the 9 ounce Stainless Steel boiler found in the Gaggia Pure will ensure a good quality espresso shot. These features you will not find in either the Espressione Café Minuetto or the Delonghi EC702. I hope this information helps you with your espresso machine decision. Please feel free to contact us again on our Super Wall or directly at 1-888-411-5282 option 1 if you have anymore questions. Thanks.

Mike Russo ♦ Diana...The Espressione Café Minuetto like most Semi Automatic Espresso machines does not come with a built in grinder. It also uses a single thermoblock boiler and not a dual boiler system. Thanks
