Question about DeLonghi EC140 Espresso Machine

Sempre Crema I'm find myself cleaning my espresso maker and mesh filter from the Sempre Crema quite often. Lately, the espresso has no or very little crema? Is it time for a new filter. If so, how can I order one. Thank you, Zoraida

Before changing the filter, try cleaning it following the instructions in the manual(page 9, i'll attach it to my post). The Delonghi web site also offers the following solution: "The coffee may have been ground too coarsely or the grounds may not have been pressed with a tamper. Also check to make sure that the coffee is not old or stale." Parts are supposed to be available from the delonghi website(www.delonghi.com), but i couldn't find where they hid it. but there's an option on the site to go to local sevice centers, lets say you live in canada, then you pick the canadian website from the pull down menu on the top, the customer support tab, then service center on the left. Good luck

Dispenses very little CREMA. Is there something to adjust?


Rule of thumb - espresso machines deliver a shot of coffee in 25 to 35 seconds.

If there is no crema and the coffee comes faster:
  1. There is not enough coffee in the portafilter (7 grams per shot).
  2. The coffee is not tamped enough (about 30 lb pressure on the tanmper handle).
  3. The grind is too coarse.
If the above does not "fix" the crema problem, post again and include make and model of the machine and type of portafilter.

Good luck.

Where do I find the schematics/drawing of internal parts for Briel Cadiz Espresso maker


I just bought a new Briel Cadiz and it doesn't make crema. I tried my old Briel crema filter and it works fine making good cream. I was told to untighten the screw in the new crema filter but the screw just goes round and round, even with an electric drill. Can't tighten it or loosen it. Anyone got any suggestions?

New machine but no crema.. very disappointed


I have the same machine with excellent crema. You need to be sure you are using a high quality burr grinder on the fine setting. Also be sure to tamp using a tamper for even compression. The espresso should come out SLOWLY and smoothly... it will end with a great crema.

SAECO fully auto Traditional Very little crema


The crema is created by reducing the grinding to more fine so the coffee will run slower around 20 sec. Inside the coffee bean container their is un adjust control and with special tool you can turn it to grind the coffee to more fine.

Why doesn't my Krups espresso maker produce crema when I brew espresso? Very little is produced and gets blasted away by the time it's don't brewing.


Crema is the goldish brown top that goes onto the top of the coffee once it is dispersed from the espresso tap and flows naturally as part of the coffee when coffee is made. Im not sure what you mean "blasted."
Perhaps you should flush through the machine with cold water a couple of times beforehand and also consider a descaling kit - check your manual or Krups if there is one for this model.
Crema isn't produced by any machine though.
