Question about Krups XP2070 10 cup Coffee Maker/15 bar Pump Espresso

1 Answer

Cant steam milk and brew expresso at the same time.

For spending this much money on a coffee machine i would think i would be able to steam my milk while my coffee was brewing. but instead i have to wait like 2 minutes for it to be ready to brew, then wait another few minutes to wait for it to be ready to steam. then when its done it dumps alot of water into the bottom tray. am i just doing something wrong. i would think i could make a cup of coffee rather fast spending that much money.

My maxim steam coffee machine will boil the water and froth the milk, but for some reason will no longer allow water to feed through to make the expresso - any ideas?


First things first, try a descaling solution, especially if you live where there's hard water. Sometimes minerals can crust up the brewing portion of the internal tubing. The steam part still works because it essentially leaves the limescal in the pot, channeling only steam through the steaming wand. Dump out any water in the reservoir, then put in a mix of half filtered or distilled water, and white vinegar. Run it through, setting the switch for brew mode only. Once you see it coming out of the filter holder, turn the machine off. Let sit for an hour or two, then run the same sequence again, shutting it off the moment you see the water/vineger mix coming out. Once again, let sit a while, then on the third cycle, let it run all of the vinegar solution through. Let cool, and rinse the reservoir with water, (put in water, swirl the machine around, then upend it to dump the water out.) then run the full reservoir of distilled wather through, repeating if necessary, to clear out the vinegar.

If that doesn't work, or if the vinegar solution never comes through, not even in a trickle, then there are other issues. Here's how to troubleshoot them.

The next steps will need to be done with some caution, as it may splash or shoot steam and/or boiling water out from the side of the porta filter holder!

Step 1...Remove the filter, and run it without coffee or filter in it. Do this from a few feet away or with something between you and the brew head of the machine, as it may cause hot water to spray with a fair amount of force!

Does the water come through the filter holder? If it does..

Step 2. Run it with the empty filter. If it the water doesn't come through with filter in place, then your filter is clogged, and you'll need to take a pin and clear the holes in it. If it does, then you're grinding your coffee too finely, or tamping it down to hard.

If the water doesn't come through with just the empty filter holder, then you've most likely got a valve (A.k.a. Brew/steam switch) problem. Frankly, it's easier to buy a new machine than replace that valve, especially if it's the automatic variety that switches you to steam whenever it's finished it's brew cycle.

If you've got one with the manual brew/steam switch valves, you can pull the knob off and see if it the stem turns with a needle nose pliers...{{NOTE: DO NOT DO THIS IF THERE IS STEAM LEAKING AROUND THE KNOB! Steam leaking around this knob can indicate that the ceramic valve is compromised, and could cause live steam to shoot out of the place where the knob is!}} if it does turn as smoothly as usual, and the machine works, then you just need to repair the knob because it's gotten stripped out or is broken where it meets the valve stem.

Water shoots out of steam valve and can't make espresso


Samantha,

The steam function and the expresso use the same elements to create the steam but the valves will direct the steam to the expresso unit or the steam arm. Most likely you have a faulty valve. In most cases the valve will not open until the pressure gets to the right level. If you are just getting hot water out of the steam arm instead of steam via the expresso unit it most likely means that the valve is faulty. The valves can be replaced but is not easy. You will need to have the unit serviced or you could try to replace the valves. Make sure the flow meter is working before you replace the valves. You can check the operation of the flow meter by running the hot water cycle and making sure that you get the right amount of hot water. Good luck!

Help received the Delonghi Cafe Nabucco machine from a friend .no instructions ,how do I make expresso ,capp steam milk etc?


http://www.manualnguide.com/dl/10372/

Go to the above link and download the manual for the BCO 120T

It should provide the basics to get you going

Making a good espresso with steamed milk takes practice

If you don't have the frothing pitchers.. buy a couple in different sizes

Used cold low fat or non fat milk..

It takes practice to get good at it.. a hand on the side of the pitcher to make sure you don't scald the milk.. etc.. you don't want the milk to bubble/boil..

If you have a control valve for the steam pipe.. immerse the pipe about an 1/2 inch or so into the cold milk and slowly open the valve.. until you have it open full. Jostle the pitcher to move the milk around pretty much during most of the process once it begins to warm and foam.. raise the pitcher to heat the milk in the bottom .. then lower it as the foam begins to form...never letting the steam pipe out into the froth. Once done..wipe the pipe clean with a wet cloth.

Grind of the coffee is imporant as well as the roast and when you fill the portafilter don't over tamp.. If you pack it to tightly.. won't brew... too loosely.. brews too fast.. You want to see the coffee shots come out and form what's known as crema... which is a thin layer of tan or light brown foam on top of the shot. If aren't getting this..the coffee is either ground wrong or packed too tight.

It's an art..and nothing beats practice.. there are scores of books and internet threads on how to froth milk and make different coffee drinks..

I love a good Cafe Borgia now and again.. we live in the Portland, Oregon area.. everyone here is addicted to the bean..

Best of Luck

Takes a long time to steam milk. water comes out of the brewing head while steaming milk


i'll preface this by saying i have never used a strarbux machine, but I have used dozens of others (daily habit for 18 years now)

when are you trying to get your steam (ie before or after brewing the espresso)
If you have been trying before, wait till after (if your machine does not let you turn off the espresso output then when the coffee starts to slow down (just past the peak of flow).
It should take only a few seconds to steam the milk. (also the closer to the surface of the milk that the steam is released the frothier the milk will get)

Sylvia still makes great milk for steam but on Saturday it stopped producing hot water for expresso. What do I do? I live in North Tas


Hi
. If the brew thermostat is bad it won’t heat. To test for this, push the steam switch and wait 15 seconds. Then open the steam knob and push the middle button and see if the water is warm. If it is then you need a new brew thermostat. That is the thermostat that has the red dot on the top. It sets on top of the boiler next to the steam thermostat. If you take the top off, make sure that the machine is unplugged.

One side of the expresso machine is not working


Check the nozzle at the end of the steam wand, use a paperclip to clear, if you can get hot coffee then the steam wand is just blocked.

Don't know how to work the steamer.


I have the same Conair Cuisine Ultra expresso maker as you; its an old one. Make sure the coffee grind is in the spoon/filter cup and as the water heats it will brew the expresso. Simply twist the the knob at the top of the silver steam valve stem will let out hot steam for you to frosh the milk.
