Fill a cup with vinegar and use a book to prop up the cup so that the steaming element is completely immersed in the vinegar. After about 10-15 minutes, wipe the steam element clean. While you're at it, try running a vinegar/water solution through the espresso machine. If it takes the solution, run plain water through the machine to clear out that nasty vinegar taste.

My Coffee machine Delonghi doing expresso without foam today. Before doing good expresso with foam. help please.


Espresso should have crema not foam, foam is air added to coffee, like Starbucks does. Issue lays in the grinder and coffee quality. Recommend using Italian espresso bean like Miscela d Oro

I have a Starbucks Barista Espresso Sin 006 that I got used from someone. They hadn't used in it awhile and didn't have the manual. I'm told that before using I should Prime it. The instructions says...


Hi
Since the machine hadn't been used in a while you might have a stuck check valve in the pump. You say it hums. Does it rattle or just hum? If it hums something is stuck in the lines that is keeping the pump from moving water. If it rattles and makes a lot of noise its the pump check valve or it could be a plugged flow meter/ intake line.
