SOURCE: francis francis x5-espresso splatters all over

1) The coffee you are using may not be ground finely enough to provide a proper extraction time, resulting in water rushing through the ground coffee much too quickly. Think of it like water running through a handful of pebbles as opposed to a handful of sand. You want "sandier" coffee.

2) Your gasket (the rubber part that seals the portafilter to the group head) may be worn/damaged and is leaking water when you are brewing. Attempt to contact FF! or Saeco to secure a replacement gasket. When you are not using the machine, don't tighten the portafilter all the way in to the head, either leave it completely disengaged or only loosely attached. This saves wear on the gasket.

3) Your brew water may be too hot. Purge your boiler right before brewing by running water into a bowl without the portafilter locked in. After a few seconds the superheated water will be run out and you're ready to brew.

Hello, We bought X6 TRIO from usa. We live in

You will have to look at the machine. It should say the voltage it operates on. I would use a transformer unless I'm sure.

I have a Francis Francis X3 machine and would like the attachment to use ground coffee as at the moment I can only use pods.

If you have an X3 Trio you are out of luck.
If you have the older model, you can buy 'ground coffee conversion kits' or you can use a ground coffee portafilter from an Ascaso Dream/Arc etc.

It is possible that the gasket under the spring is damaged, remove the screen and diffuser and check the spring and gaskek in the middle hole. You can try backwashing which might force the spring and gasket in position.

I have a Francis X1 Trio. Has anyone ever tried to use ground coffee and can it work. I hate the pods and would love to try to use regular ground with a tamper, but I'm afraid of ruining the machine.

You need a ground coffee adapter, these are available from various sites online. Do a web search for X1 ground coffee handle and you'll find one. Make sure it's the right one for your machine (check to see if you have the aluminium or brass boiler version)

Just found this site - It's in the UK and I'm not sure if you are but they will probably export to you.
