    Hi guys and gals, I'm looking for some advice and I'm sorry if this has been covered before. I did search but couldn't find the exact information I was looking for. I recently received my Mara X and I'm delighted with it. Its my first prosumer machine so I'm a total newbie with this kind of...

    Dear coffee lovers I am seeking advise when running a backflush cycle on my 2019 model duo temp pro. The machine comes with the newly updated silicon disc that has no hole. The silicon disc is inserted into the portafilter along with a cleaning tablet. The manual states that you need to run...

    I have a couple of earlier Baby Gaggias with the 3-way valve, so backflushing needs to be done. I clearly left it too long because - quite a lot of water was spritzing out of the top of the PF on pulling a shot - the PF wouldn't go all the way round and sit properly - obviously the coffee...

    apologies if repeating a common theme but I have done a full stripdown and now I cannot get a drop of water out of the group head, can get it out of the wand but I get no pressure even when I put on the blanking basket that I use for back flushing any ideas?
  5. Gaggia Forum
    Hi there, I bought a second hand Gaggia classic and descaled (Gaggia own descaler) and backflushed (Cafiza) as instructed by a Gaggia Classic video. I have since flushed at least five tanks of water and made about 10 espressos only to find out that there's still some very little white particles...

    Having found out if your machine is OK to backflush, it can still be a daunting task, see how to go about doing it here:

    I've had my Duo Temp Pro for four or five months now, after any number of machines over the past thirty or so years, and I like it, a lot. But, I've tried back flushing, sometimes twice in a row, and I've still needed to remove the shower screen to get it properly clean. So I was wondering if...
  8. Gaggia Forum
    Eeeuk. The classic is here but tastes very odd. I've had everything off and given it a good clean, I'm grabbing descaler tomorrow and I've ordered detergent from Rave with my beans.... But I need to practice and I'm both impatient and from Yorkshire (I've drunk two icky lattes since 1930hrs...
  9. ECM / Profitec Forum
    Hi All, Backflushed my Barista for the first time today (with Pulycaff) and thought I would pass on my ovservations (and a question of course !) I followed the instructions in the ECM manual. The first thing I was surprised about was how dirty the water/detergent coming out of the discharge...
  10. Gaggia Forum
    I've been backflushing my classic every now and again, maybe not as often as i should so last night i had a good session on the machine cleaning etc... I started to do this as I am struggling to tell too much of a difference between different coffees and am starting to wonder if my machine is...

    Hi all I recently bought my NS Oscar brand new and have had it around 3 weeks. I've probably run around 25 cups through it so far. The only cleaning I've done is after each cup I run hot water through the empty PF after emptying the puck out, then clean it and leave the PF to dry. I also clean...
  12. Expobar Forum
    Hello, if I am going to backflush my Expobar dual leva every couple of days with just water how many times shall i do it? Is 20 seconds twice enough?
  13. Gaggia Forum
    As title really. I regularly descale but I've yet to back flush my 2013 Classic. If so, can anyone give me some pointers? I have the blank filter for back flushing....
  14. Sold
    I'm selling a bottomless PF with non-pressurised double basket and deep blank basket (both from Happy Donkey). It's not had much use (truth be told, I don't think I've ever used the double basket) so it's in great condition. £25 for the lot, which includes P&P. Picture of the blank basket to...
  15. Sage Forum
    With it being so easy to just set and forget it for backflushing the SDB can it become too clean? I'm thinking aloud, wondering if using a detergent backflush more than the recommended once every 200 shots is going to cause premature wear of anything? Right now I'm doing a detergent backflush...
  16. Rancilio Forum
    Good evening, I'm considering upgrading from my current dualit Espressevo to a second hand Silvia. Not knowing the history and service record I would like to get the machine serviced. A good descale, backflush, Strip and clean, seals and O-rings replaced etc. I understand I can probably do...
  17. Rocket Forum
    Hey all, having owned my R58 for a month or so now thought I had better ask about routine maintenance! I backflush with water after every session but currently thats all I do. Run bottled water through it so guessing a descale isnt needed just yet (and no idea how to go about it as only...
  18. Rocket Forum
    Serviced my Giotto Evo today. Backflush with Cafiza and de-scale with citric acid. No real evidence of scale so I guess Ashbrook has been doing its job. Only disturbing thing, bits of chrome appearing when flushing. Also took the panels off and made minor changes to pipe routing where they were...
  19. Gaggia Forum
    Like the title says. I bought this on the basis that it was mechanically identical to the Classic, but it doesn't have an obvious down-pipe like the classic.

    I have an Izzo Alex Duetto III and after each brew I blind filter backflush to get out the crud. However I sometimes have to do this up to five times before the water runs clear. If after a brew I did not water backflush say one day the next day's brew will have crud deposits in circulation...
