    My problem is similar. I have a La San Marco 2 group head manual. My water flows at about 250ml in 7 seconds. Far too fast meaning that I am compensating to get my 60ml in 25 second shot by grinding very fine. The water pressure is set at 9 bars. How to I lower the water flow rate?

Back-flush the machine regularly and check your water hookup and make sure you to not have a small diameter water line. Other than that it is controlled by the water pump I believe. If the solenoid (the silver thing attached to the pump) used to start the pump is old it could slow down the pump start cycle.

Water flow is slow and noisy


The pump is a vibratory pump and it will make some noise.

Take the lid off the reservoir and watch at the hose coming from the relief valve (the short hose).
Pull a shot.
If water comes out of the hose, the relief valve is opening on high pressure. The pump gets extra noisy on high pressure too. This happens when the water flow is blocked due to coffee ground too fine, coffee tamped too hard, pluggage somewhere.
Pull another shot but this time with the basket removed from the portafilter.
If there is still water coming out of the short hose, you need to descale the machine. If there is not water com ing out of the hose and the pump is quieter, adjust your grind or your tamp.

Filter basket overflows after cleaning Bunn VPR Coffee Maker


Some people also try adding fresh grounds to brewed grounds, resulting in an overflow. A restricter valve can be used, but a better solution is to simply pour in half the water at a time. This is what people who buy non Bunn filters do to stop overfills.

The coffee maker over flows with coffee


You might have to reprogram the brew level. Does it over fill the decanter or is is over flowing from the brew basket?
If from the decanter then reprogram, there are instructions behind the front panel.
If from the brew basket then adjust coffee grind and or volume, also check and clean the sprayhead.

Coffee barely drips out. I cleaned everything. Do I need a new portafilter basket? The unit is only 6 months old.


How about with the basket and portafilter in place, but no coffee in the basket? Does the water flow reasonably when you turn on the pump?

Can I adjust the water flow for finely ground coffee?


You probably have coffee ground for a drip coffee pot, not an automatic drip coffee maker. With a drip coffee pot, you put the coffee in and add the hot water on top of that. You might want to try a coffee press. They are fantastic for the finer grinds of coffee. Some Mexican coffees are ground almost as fine as flour and a press works great. You can get a press for about $12 & up.

No flow


Tamp the coffee a little less - run water through filter basket to make sure it is dripping out before filling with espresso grounds. Dry the filter thoroughly before inserting coffee grounds. I would reccomend using double filter basket only instead of the single.
