Question about Cuisinart EM-200 Espresso Machine
It sounds to me that your group seal is bad. Since this machine is a 15-Bar unit, it puts out quite a bit of pressure causing water to leak out around the portafilter when making espresso if your seal is old or damaged. The pressure doesn't build up as much when you are running just water through the machine - hence the reason why the machine works ok without grounds. I sell a LOT of parts and accessories for various manufacturers of espresso machines. This particular seal is extremely difficult to locate fom Cuisinart, but is rather easy to replace. Through extensive testing, I have located a replacement gasket produced by another major manufacturer that fits the Cuisinart EM-100 & EM-200 machines perfectly. I sell them for $10.99 each (or two for $19.99) which includes shipping in the continental US and I accept Paypal. If you would like to contact me via email (email@example.com), I will be happy to help you out.

Try running water only and see if you get the same result. If you do, then soak the filters and the bottom of the metal basket of the portafilter holder in vinegar (distilled white). In my experience, this unit requires constant cleaning. But the espresso is good.
