Too much water coming out of steam wand

I have successfully owned a Cafe Roma for years and love my machine. My parents bought one on my recommendation BUT have never been able to froth the milk successfully. They have given it to me. I have compared the two machines by measuring the amount of water coming from each wand when I steam it. There is just over twice as much water coming from the their steam wand than mine. This is causing the milk to not froth. Can this fault be fixed in their machine? Sue

I noticed the wand squirts hot water at first befor the steam comes out, sometimes for quite a while, so grab a bowl or something and let the water drain out until the steam comes and then put it in the milk. This is what I do and it makes awesome frothy steammed milk.
Good luck and enjoy.

I worked at StarBucks, what we did was put water into a contaner and steam the water, a lot of the time why the steamer doesn'..t work as well is because it is clogged. Another way to do it is to just run your steamer, also go to a coffee store and buy expresso machine cleaner. It could just need a good cleaning.

The frother on my cafe roma has stopped working. I removed the wand but where the steam comes out is stopped up. how do i fix this


The "frother" is probably blocked. Remove it and see if you can blow through it. If not, you can try cleaning it with a paper clip. If that won't work, place the metal frother tube in a pot of water with a bit of ammonia or vinegar in it. Heat the water to boiling, then let it simmer awhile. After it cools, try using the paper clip again. You should clean the steamer attachment after each use:
2. Remove the froth enhancer and rinse under warm tap water. 3. Wipe the steam wand with a damp cloth. 4. Briefly set the Selector Control to the ‘STEAM’ position to clear any remaining milk from the steam wand.

Cafe Roma producing more water than steam


you really need to decalc frequently, at least every 2 months. after it goes too long, you will see that problem. have not figured out yet how to fix it.

Espressione Cafe Roma Espresso is coming out like foam!! Help!!!


I can understand how frustrating that can be. You might want to try and de-calcifying your espresso maker. After time the calcium and minerals in water can build up and clog the nozzle of the machine. You should be able to find a de-calcifying solution at a local cooking store. Also if you are trying to reach the manufacturer their number should be 770-509-3006.

Thank you,
