Question about Breville BES860XL
My Breville Barista Express is under 1 year old and I have been taking the recommended measures to take care of it. Yesterday I decalcified it, just like I have done in the past. However all of a sudden it just started making a high-pitched buzzing noise when I press the two-cup button? Should I panic? Does this need to be taken in for repairs or is there a simpler solution?
a 6ya Repairman can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I'm not sure you can. I did exactly the same thing, the very first time I used it -- I phoned Breville support and they told me to try soaking the filter in 2 tsp of baking soda dissolved in a cup of warm water. Which kinda seemed to work, although it was bit occasionally reluctant to give me my damned coffee.
I struggled on with it for maybe a year, but then the rubber seal around the bit the filter connects to blew out (with rather dramatic results). I think the extra pressure of the blocked filter did more damage that I suspected.
I got it serviced and they replaced both the seal and the filter. Worked great after that...
...until last week, when water started pouring out where no water should pour. Turns out that the black lock block that the filter holder goes into has developed a crack.
Looks like another trip to the service agent for me.
In short, you could try cleaning the 1-cup filter, but I would reccommend giving it up as a bad job and just buying another.

Once you've got the tamp right: no more rattles! The perfect tamp also makes a better cup of espresso.
The single hole is not a cheapo, lazy manufacturing defect. The Cafe Roma has a "double walled" basket which is to produce a thicker crema. The single hole is designed to allow pressure to build up behind it thus forcing a jet effect in the basket, giving the the coffee its crema. This, by the way, is why it is also a sloppy/wet puck rather than a dry one.
The thump during steaming just gives me something to dance to in the morning. "When the saints go marching in" always seems to come to mind; perfect timing.
I am very happy with my Cafe Roma. Just took some practice.
Happy espresso to you,

A dirty grinder or plunger will make your coffee dirty. Try mixing some vinagar and water (2 parts water and 1 part white vinegar) and then run it through your machine to clean out the inside.
