Even simpler way to prove the hot/warm water does not freeze quicker than cold water. It goes like this:
Lets say the two waters in question are 95 degrees and 55 degrees. The 55 degree water will freeze faster because the hotter water will get to 55 degrees on it's way down to freezing; thus adding on the time to reduce the first 40 degrees before being at the exact same temperature as the opponent water.
Case closed.

Also in regards to the dissolved minerals post...most minerals actually lose solubility in water as the temperature goes up, this is why hot water heaters and boilers in coffee makers get filled with calcium deposits. So hot water can have less minerals than cold. This is why I got an R/O system for my house when I lived in an area that had very hard water....when I brought water up to a boil on the stove, it would get a horribly ugly crust on top from the minerals coming out of solution.

    1. Make sure the filter holder fits properly into the holding ring.

    2. Try tightening the filter handle a little more.

    3. Make
      sure that the edge of the filter cup is clean from the espresso grounds
      before you insert it into the brew head. Also ensure that brew head is
      clean.







    1. Make sure the water reservoir is full and properly fitted into its position.

    2. The grounds should not be over-packed into the filter.

    3. Make sure the filter holder fits properly into the holding ring.

    4. You may need to clean the filter basket and the brew head. Click here for cleaning instructions.


    If your espresso maker is not making espresso, below are some causes:



    1. No water in reservoir

    2. Coffee grinds too fine

    3. Too much coffee in the filter

    4. Cap is not secure, causing steam to escape

    5. Appliance not plugged in

    6. Coffee grinds have been tamped/compressed too much

    7. Unit may need to be cleaned

    If the above troubleshooting does not work, your product needs to be repaired or replaced.






    discarded ideas was air in the system. Another was that gas released
    from the cool water entering the thermosyphon was the culprit.

    You may have tamped coffee grounds too firmly. If problem persists, try cleaning the appliance.

Well as i dont know what machine you have I will give you a generic troule shooting for manual esspresso machines.

first if the steam is working one can make the assumption that the way from the watertank to the bioler is ok.

that leaves us with the handle the filter you put your grindend beans in. Or the filter on the machine.

So first trie and see if it comes out water when you dont have on the handle with the espresson filter.

Will water not come even with the handle off? then its the fitler in the machine. trie and remove it and clean it or trie and descale it and force water through the espresso exit.

Will the water come out just fine with the filter and handle off?
then its those two things.
Trie and put the filter in alitle descaling for a couple of hours and the clean it "extremly" good.
