Bloomfield coffee maker overflows, even with plain filter


The outlet of the cone filter holder is clogged. Normally its just a hole you can clean out but some units have a valve that is pushed up/open by your coffee pot. That valve may be clogged or if you changed the coffee pot it may not be opening due to the different pot. Clean valve or just remove it so the coffee will run into coffee pot.

I have an older Breville home unit that isnt pumping at the same pressure it used to. Cant make steam either


You need to clean the coffee filters real good,as per manufacturer instructions,One of the best solutions,boil the coffee filter,without the handle.After boiling for about 5 minutes,clean the filter.Now place filter with handle in place( DO NOT USE ANY COFFEE GRINDS).Engage machine into espresso mode.Let it run about a minute.Also clean the upper filter(requires taking philip screw out).Good luck.

I have to hold the filter when making coffee - if I don't the filter holder starts to unwind and then coffee and water spurts everywhere. It has only just started this and I clean it constantly making...


Please check the following:

1. Hooks - the hooks could be worn
2. Gasket - it could be worn or broken.

You need to replace the filter holder or the rubber seal/gasket.

Hope it helps and have a great day!

Coffee has started becoming weak


Basing on personal experience (you can find more on Google probably), solutions are:

On percolated (filter) coffee machines:

Check water temp, if water temp is insufficient , most common is scale heating element , faulty element, faulty thermostat.
Check if water is dripping right at the center of the filter, if it is dripping on one side because the orifice is clogged, that can result in weak coffee.
Coffee blend not well distributed on filter basket.

On Espresso machines:

Check water temp, same as filter coffee machines (thermostat element, scale on heating chamber).
Ensure that coffee is filled correctly in the filter cup (fill at level), and well pressed.
Ensure that the coffee mixture that you are using is not too coarse, buy the apposite one for espresso.
Ensure that you are not leaving the machine brewing for a time that is too long, and Italian coffee cup is very small, approximately one regular shot.

On the hob moka pots (espresso, Moka and Bialetti type):

This are the trickiest ones, you need art and practice to get a good espresso with a Moka, but when you learn, the result is better than what you may get with an home electrical espresso maker.
The frame on the hob must be not too strong, and the mixture coarse but well pressed, with water at level tag, or you will get a weak coffee.
On Mokas a good strategy is keeping hob at minimum, and turning up the flame at top when coffee starts coming out.

French and turkish cafetieres:

Ensure that you put enough coffee, water hot enough, and that you left the infusion enough time to get a strong coffee.

Note: insufficient pressure and clogged lines on electric machines never give you a weak coffee, exactly the opposite.
Not pressed mixture always gives weak coffee, but too much pressed mixture may give you coffee with bad taste.

Making Coffee


Ok lift the lid and inside you will see a brew basket (it will have a hole in the bottem middle of it) If this unit has a mesh type filter basket you will not need paper filters! you put the coffee in the mesh basket the replace before brewing! if you do not have a mesh basket you will need a paper filter to put down in the coffee holder!(the one with the hole in the bottom!) add coffee and waeter and brew!
I hope this fixes ya up!
Please rate my response!
THANK YOU!

Pressure but no water


Hi,

Make sure your filter is clean, take the filter and head it to light. If it is clean then you can see a little hole in the midle.
