When I just have water in the portafilter it runs through fine. When I put the expresso in it clogs and expresso will not flow through.

No solution here. Utopia directions say to only use MEDIUM (drip) grind. Ain't it awful? I prefer ultra fine grind, frankly muddy coffee.Deb

Saeco Starbucks barista.Espresso drips.

There was an unusual high pressure problem, remove the shower and screw, then the 2 allen wrench screws and check the spring and valve seat, they may have shifted.

My Barista Saeco is 4 yrs.old. Pump works good in the steam cycle but bogs down in the brew cycle. Today the pump almost stopped completely. What's up?

Try cleaning your portafilter. Put a pinch of automatic dishwashing detergent in the portafilter basket only. Brew until you get suds comming out then stop for 1 minute. Repeat 5-10 times, stoping for the minute each time, until you get white foam. Then rinse basket and brew empty for a complete tank. Then try brewing again with coffee.

Cleaning the hard plastic coffee pot

Patience- this may sound goofy.

In cleaning similarly difficult containers, I found a method that works for me.

Although other cleaners may work, I keep an inexpensive product which is a Simple Green knockoff called Mean Green.
It seems to be the same formula and costs a whole $5 a gallon from a dollar store.
For most cleaning, it can be heavily diluted and works better that way without leaving too much film behind.

Then (because it was there) I used the crushed charcoal purchased for the aquarium, dumped a half-cup of it into (it was a thermos), added a 1/4 cup of concentrated cleaner - and shook.

The charcoal is fairly light and not too abrasive but the shaking randomizes contact with the surface and scrubs it clean.

Uuuhh, rinse THOROUGHLY; it tastes terrible!

BTW, half mixed with water and in a spray bottle, it works great at killing insects and disabling wasp nests.
The stuff is very good at breaking surface tension and really wets anything it touches and, for the enviro fanatics, it degrades in nature.

Barista Coffee Expresso machine

yea, that happens to me. Try this way....Turn on the Barista, wait til the the steam's green light, then push the steamer button on, wait for a good 1 minute. It should be blowing hot air by then. Good Luck
