We just got a Via Venezia espresso maker. When I have the pod filter basket (with the pod) on top of the portafilter, it won't screw into the top. Can I just put the pod in the portafilter?

We have broken the handle on pressurized portafilter for Saeco Via Venezia espresso machine. where can we get replacement?


I don't think the handle is sold separately. Seattlecoffeegear does sells both a bottomless and an unpressurised portafilter for the Via Venezia. Both would be considered upgraded gear vs the pressurized one.

My machine is brand new and the coffee holder is stuck and not coming out inspire of twisting either side... Please help!


Hi
The handle rotates to the left until it stops, then pull down. If the baskets is left, turn the machine off and let it cool. then grab the basket and twist it sideways. If the basket stuck you may be missing a spring in the portafilter itself. It is in the top inside of the silver piece (wire spring).

Frothing works perfect....water is extracted just fine. BUT when I put coffee in the basket and tamp it down and put it in the machine it just makes noise like it is about to drip and nothing comes out,...


I have a brand new Via that never worked right out of the box. Could barely get any espresso to come through the portafilter. Got a new portafilter and the espresso now flies out of the machine beautifully. Seems they are shipping2_bing.gif units with faulty portafilter. Bad news is a new portafilter is like $65. See if you can get them to give you a new one. I had the same issue as you, very little espessso comes out.

No espresso comes out. the grounds are like


Hi
There are a few things that can cause that.
  1. You grounds are too fine. You already have a pressurized portafilter. Your creating too much pressure.
  2. You need to clean your portafilter with espresso machine detergent by brewing it through the portafilter and basket (without coffee). Automatic dish washing detergent can do in a pinch, but has additives. Just a pinch will do.
  3. Your pump is bad and needs to be replaced.

I have cleaned the machine, taken apart the filter and even attempted to run white vinegar through it to remove any potential deposits. I still can't get water through. Any suggestions?


You may need a new portafilter. I got a brand new Via Venezia and it never worked right out of the box. I got a new portafilter and now the espesso flies out of the machine. Bad news is the portafilter is like $65. They say you are not supposed to take those portafilters apart, they have some weird pressurized part that gets wrecked if you disassemble them.

Makeing coffee


No, these machines use a pressurized portafilter to make brewing espresso easier. Be sure your coffee is ground about the fineness of table salt. Just level the coffee in the filter and insert the filter as instructed.

Coffee not pouring through portafilter


if your grounds are tamped down too tight, the steam can't get through it.
