No pressure from porta filter.

So I get good pressure with the milk, but nothing bilds up with the coffee grounds. I have let it warm up for a good half an hour and still no difference.

    I have the same problem - I cannot get the boiling water to move through the coffee grounds - no pressure - the steam and frother works OK but no water through the expresso part of the machine.

I have one of these - Mine has been nothing but a pain in the bum!
Like an old girl friend of mine - All looks and no Action!
I guess that MAYBE your coffee is ground too fine, and is tamped down too firmly - try a coarser grind, or dont tamp the fine grinds to hard. PS: I am not an expert - just another owner

I have exactly the same problem! I have contacted the Australian Supplier (Espresso Elements www.espressoelements.com.au) of this machine with this problem, and as the parts are no longer made, they have offerend me a new machine for the price of getting it fixed.

One question: have you tried the machine without the porta-filter attached? If it works through an entire cycle without the porta-filter attached, then the porta-filter is clogged. I've lost that special little tool to poke into the hole on the porta-filter, but a fine-tipped needle works just as well. Other pins that I've tried are too thick. Sometimes there's a piece of coffee that has made it through the top part of the filter gets stuck at the single hole that is the exit. Find an appropriate pin and poke around with it, then run WATER only through the filter. If it makes it through a cycle, you've fixed it. This clogging can happen very frequently with too finely ground coffee.

If however, your machine stops and beeps without a filter attached, then there's something restricting the flow inside the machine and your only alternative is vinegar, or similar decalcifier.

Good luck!

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

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

We've had the Rancilio Audrey now for a year and still not have had a perfect cappucino. 1. Milk. We use 3.5 dairy milk, cold before going under spout. 2. What is the middle (steam) button used for? ...


  1. That is the right milk. Use a thermometer with the milk.
  2. The middle button is used for steam. It engages the high themostat for steam.
    1. Slightly open the steam valve
    2. Turn on the middle button
    3. Keep the end of the steam wand slightly above the milk surface (0.5 mm) so the steam incorporates air into the milk. (Takes practice)
    4. Open the steam valve as the boiler heats up. (Takes practice)
    5. When the milk get to 74 C (165 F) immerse the steam wand into the milk and heat to 82 C (185 F)
    6. Turn off the middle button and shut the valve.
  3. For 90 ml of coffee, use 14 gram of ground coffee. The coffee scoop that came with the machine holds 7 grams of ground coffee as it comes out of a grinder (not packed). Tamp the coffee after it is in the sieve.
