    I have the same problem. Even with the dosage lever on max.

    Hi Check your spent grounds. Do they look very coarse. If they do your grinder may be off its mounts. Look at the white cork screw on the center to the grinder ( remove some beans ) If its off to one side thats your problem.

Basing on personal experience (you can find more on Google probably), solutions are:

On percolated (filter) coffee machines:

Check water temp, if water temp is insufficient , most common is scale heating element , faulty element, faulty thermostat.
Check if water is dripping right at the center of the filter, if it is dripping on one side because the orifice is clogged, that can result in weak coffee.
Coffee blend not well distributed on filter basket.

On Espresso machines:

Check water temp, same as filter coffee machines (thermostat element, scale on heating chamber).
Ensure that coffee is filled correctly in the filter cup (fill at level), and well pressed.
Ensure that the coffee mixture that you are using is not too coarse, buy the apposite one for espresso.
Ensure that you are not leaving the machine brewing for a time that is too long, and Italian coffee cup is very small, approximately one regular shot.

On the hob moka pots (espresso, Moka and Bialetti type):

This are the trickiest ones, you need art and practice to get a good espresso with a Moka, but when you learn, the result is better than what you may get with an home electrical espresso maker.
The frame on the hob must be not too strong, and the mixture coarse but well pressed, with water at level tag, or you will get a weak coffee.
On Mokas a good strategy is keeping hob at minimum, and turning up the flame at top when coffee starts coming out.

French and turkish cafetieres:

Ensure that you put enough coffee, water hot enough, and that you left the infusion enough time to get a strong coffee.

Note: insufficient pressure and clogged lines on electric machines never give you a weak coffee, exactly the opposite.
Not pressed mixture always gives weak coffee, but too much pressed mixture may give you coffee with bad taste.

Saeco syntia ground coffee chute not working well


The grind on the coffee might be too coarse and instead of making espresso its coming out like drip coffee because the water is running through it too fast.

Hi - a couple things... 1-Coffee is bitter + not creamy (I know it is not the bean b/c it produces nice a smooth creamy coffee in another machine) 2-water leaks into the drip tray (sometimes grind too)


One possibility is that the grinding is too fine and the coffee is running slowly. Turn the coffee grinder udjust so the coffee will be more groase and the coffee will run faster. For a 30 cc coffee need around 20-25 sec.

Waret Pucks


Hi There are 2 problems that can cause a watery puck. 1. Like EsWorld said, If the grinds is too coarse it leaves room for more water and you get a watery puck. 2. But if your grind is like a grain of salt, the you don't have enough coffee going into the brew unit, and this leaves room for extra water. To fix this, there is a lever on the top center of the door. The lever will increase the dose if pushed towards the back. DON'T push the lever to the full back position. This could cause an over charge, which could cause the brew unit to dump the ground coffee with out making because it could not compress the charge, or it could break the brew drive. 1 click back from the full plus is fine and will give a great shot.

What does the coffee produced taste like, is it bitter and watery, is there any creama on the espresso shot. Try adjusting the grind and the coffee level, maybe a little coarser.

Espresso is dark and rich at first; then shifts to water


This is suppsed to happen, every espresso machine out there on the market does this.

All the taste for the coffe comes in the first couple of seconds and after that it gets less and less.
So the problem is not that it gets lighter and lighter, but that you dont get enough taste in the start of the brewing.

And this can be caused by alot of things.
Bad beans?
Not set the grinding to fine?
it will not heat enought and thereby not get enough taste.
etc.

Saeco Royal coffee machine


There is probably something wrong with the milk frother. I would purchase a new one before having the machine serviced.
