Question about Gaggia Tebe Espresso Machine

1 Answer

No cream on the espresso when dispensed

I have a question. Our gaggia tebe has been maintained through the years. What is happening now, when the coffee is dispensed from the machine, there is no cream on the espresso coffee in the cup. We buy very good coffee beans but the taste is not robust. It seems weak tasting. Can you help me out with any suggestions? We hand grind the coffee and tried fine to medium grind with no success.

    Thanks for the input. Today, water starting leaking where you engage the handle with the coffee to the machine. The coffee was discharging and mixing with the leaking water. I'm thinking maybe a seal or valve may need to be replaced. What's funny, is we are actually using Lavazza beans. I'II check out James.

I was having this trouble with Lavazza beans and Morrisons (horrible) beans. I switched to Formula 6 from James' Gourmet Coffee on the internet and every cup has a great crema layer and good taste.
With the old beans I could get an occasional good cup, it seemed this was more of a problem if the machine had been switched on for a long time before making the cup. I use a Gaggia machine with a Gaggia MDF grinder on 8 or 9 setting, with the new beans I now get a great cup all the time so I'm going to try more the James' range!

Too much water is dispensed resutling in a weak espresso. This happened after rinsing the brew unit. Greatful for any assistance with this. I have a 1 year old Titanium.

Try reprogramming the button that is dispensing to much.
Push and hold the button for the coffee you want, but hold it all the way through the process. Don’t release the button until you get the amount of coffee you want for that button, then release the button. That should get you the same amount next time. You can do this for each coffee button.
If that doesn’t fix it, then you might need a new flow meter.

No hot water or steam from wand.

If steam wand is not blocked then the problem is on the inside of the machine, try descaling the machine that might clear the blockage in the steam line.
