    Hi Guys, I'm in need of some advice on what direction in repairs I should take, I got this sage coffee machine that doesn't have any pressure through both single and double shots, well the single shot seems to move the needle but nowhere above the pre-infusion lines, water does come out but...

    Hi everyone, just got a new barista express machine and having some issues dialling in. I am on the finest grind setting with around 17g coffee (2 oclock on the grind amount knob) in my double basket and I feel like I'm tamping hard enough. However when I extract a double cup, it takes about...

    Hi everyone, In the last couple of days my Sage Barista Express has developed a new fault when using the steam wand, where the pump continues to run after the steam wand has been turned off. I tried turning the steam back on and lots came out, but when I switched it off the steam stopped again...

    Hi All, don't know if anyone else has had this but my portafilter has started to gradually rotate itself, as if to undo it, mid pour. It's not causing a problem yet but I feel if it does ever come out with, what should be, 9 bar of pressure behind it, it would cause a lot of damage to anything...

    Firstly sorry for long first post, I've been researching through this forum for a while now and have picked up lots of handy advice, however I wanted to check I've understood correctly and also gauge some opinions based on current pricing. Originally I was looking to pick up BE from Amazon for...

    As a relative newbie I recently purchased the Barista Express and Barista Pro from Costco for £365 and £450 respectively. I will only keep one machine however I do have a dilemma in choosing between the two. I did a quick comparison extracting espresso on both machines: Rave signature...

    First post and just joined so go easy on me. I've got a £250 John Lewis voucher sitting here. Would I be better off buying a Duo Temp Pro and separate grinder (Sage Smart Grinder Pro or better) or buying the Barista Express? From reading online it seems having a separate grinder is better...

    Hi all, I'm new to the forum and would like some honest advice from those who have struggled with upgraditis and who have any tips to cure it in this particular case. I've had a Sage Barista Express now for two years and although I've loved it, I feel I could be getting more out of my...

    Sage came along and replaced the grinder. Initially the engineer just changed the bur setting but I just said hang on the problem is that the adjustment was only doing anything over part of it's range. Settings above 8 did move the bur but going finer didn't so he went out and came back with an...

    I have a barista express that i use daily and always clean well and keep in good working order. The last week I've been having a perfect 2:1 ratio extraction at 30 seconds and have enjoyed coffee heaven every single morning. Until today. Same warm up time (half an hour), same grind (setting...

    The manual with the Barista express says a double expresso should have 14g of coffee and will produce 60ml in 20 to 25 seconds. Surely that will be a very weak expresso? What is that, just over 1:4, isn't expresso around 1:2 plus or minus? I use a 17g dose for a single shot getting about 36ml...

    Hello all, Barney here and new to the forum. Been reading things on here for sometime and thought with my new machine I would join up and get involved. I had had my Delonghi Magnifica ESAM 4000.b for sometime. I had taken the thing apart and refurbished the brewing unit a couple of times. I...

    I bought my machine a couple of months ago and love it. But the time has come to clean it. I've seen a couple of vids online, so the process itself looks simple enough, but do people recommend only using the Sage tablets? They seem very expensive for the amount you get, and I've seen links...

    Not seen this before: sageappliances.com » the Barista Pro™ Still a bean-to-cup like the Barista Express, but perhaps with upgraded internals? I suspect this may have the SGP grinder, as opposed to the one in the Barista Express (which shares the Dose Control Pro grinder as far as I'm...

    Hi, I've lost, or never had one since new, the cleaning disk for my barista express. I cannot find it anywhere available to buy... Not even on sage website. Is there anyway I can clean my machine without it? Can I replace it with some DIY hack? Thanks.
