For best results, use coarse coffee grounds (like the table salt grain). Check the fineness between finger and thumb and not the adjustment setting on the grinder. Fill the filter basket with grounds and level it by running small finger across and lock it in the machine. No tamping is required. Pull the handle to the right all the way and hold it as you turn the switch on for pump to operate. Initially the water will not pass through coffee as the grip is on hold pulled to the right. This blocked flow of water builds pressure to 9 bars in 6 to 8 seconds.

Release the handle grip in 6 to 8 seconds or earlier if drops of coffee start to drip in the cup (whichever occurs first).  This process is called pre infusion time delay. It allows coffee to soak, swell and dissolve essential elements that make classic shot of espresso.  A classic shot of espresso is never more than 2-Oz. For larger 8 to 10 Oz. Americana coffee, add hot water to the 2-Oz. espresso from the same machine.It does not make sense to pass 8 to 10 Oz. hot water from the same coffee to collect burnt tasting and bitter coffee.

Make it a habit to make one last espresso without coffee to clean the internal valve, before putting it away for the next day. This simple procedure extends the life of this filter holder. Do not disassemble by removing the three screws in the bottom for internal cleaning. It will not be easy to reassemble correctly.

Do not pay attention  to those who suggest, recommend and promote modifying a pressurized portafilter into a non pressurized filter holder. Such advisors are retarded & ignorant.


Descaling is best done manually every two or three months. Order Best descaler (#DSC-6) from our online store and follow authentic descaling process.
