Cm24p-1 When I make coffee it comes out foamy and gross looking. What would cause foam in the coffee. I have cleaned it, I have a filter on the water supply, and the water softner in the house is on bypass. I have had repair men out to the house and they have acheived nothing.

The foam is "crema" and is perfectly normal for unfiltered coffee and espresso, in fact it is preferred by coffee lovers. I afraid if you don't like it, you need to go back to a filtered coffee machine. Be glad that is the only "problem" your having with this machine. I've had nothing but trouble with mine.

Every coffee maker i've ever used like the meile, senseo or espresso machines do that. even my starbucks coffee looks like that at first. it should go away after just a little while, especially when stirred.

How do i use the foam setting?


It depends on what type of espresso maker you have. Some have two boilers, many only have one. For the ones with a single boiler, there will be a dial or button to raise the temperature of the boiler enough to steam the milk into foam. Just be sure to drain the line of any excess water first. Once the water stops and steam starts coming out, then you can use the steamer to create foamy milk.

The milk is not getting foamy. Steam comes out the pipe and heats the milk, but, no foam.


My only non professional suggestion is to take off the rubber cover on the steamer and make sure that and the metal steamer itself is clean.

First off, the best milk for foam is skim milk (0% fat). The higher the fat content, the less foamy your foam will be.

The foam is created by the steam/hot coffee from the lower part being forced through the doohickey and into the milk. That means that if the coffee itself isn't "perfect", the foam won't be "perfect". I've found that using different types of coffee (e.g. different grinds) or filling the coffee bin to different levels results in more or less steam/pressure being passed through, so the foam is better/worse. For example, if I put too much ground coffee in the bin or use too fine a grind, it blocks the water/steam that's going through the coffee, resulting in less coffee and weaker coffee, and also resulting in less foam.

Dacor CM24P will not dump coffee?


I have the same problem and a technician came in to look at it today. I need a press assembly unit (I think it runs about $600). He said it could simply be caused by using "sticky" coffee beans. He ran the machine, holding the door closed button with his hand so we could see the machine run it got stuck every time like it was moving through tar- even after cleaning. I'm looking at about $300 of labor and a $600 part. We ought to file class action suit against Dacor. My machine has never worked properly.

Coffee tastes like metal


THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE COFFEE. This has to do with water filter system and most importantly descaling of machine, as over time the metals in side machine and tubing get a mold type build up. Its a chemical reaction from the water and tubing and the coffee and metals. To 100% solve this, descale the machine with water and vinegar mixed. Do this a couple of times and use bottled water to fill water tank if you do not have a good water filter tap system. I have been the espresso business for over 16 years with 4 locations, and it has nothing to do with the coffee. If it was the coffee or poor coffee it would tasted burned or bitter, but NOT tasting like metal.

Please rate my solution as you see helpful, Thanks Mike Espresso Expert
