Question about Gaggia Titanium Espresso Machine
Although I'm generally pleased with the Titanium I bought a couple of years ago, I've never been able to fill the hopper with decent espresso beans and not have to keep stirring the beans around, before the 'COFFEE BEANS EMPTY' message appears.
I've tried using lightly roasted beans, and these work ok, if you don't mind a very weak coffee
I have a friend with the older SYNCRONY Digital, and because it uses a straight sided bean holder, works fine with exactly the same beans I like.
Tried contacting Gaggia, but they just recommend using Gaggia beans.
Thanks for the help but I was well past that stage. After cleaning half a dozen times, changing beans three or four times, soldering the contacts on the switch, changing it, replacing the whole doser flap sled and anything else I could think to do I finally fixed it. It took me months but in the end it was the doser trap door not allowing the dozer flap to move back and hit the switch when the grounds came down. A simple light bending out fixed it. So...we had a rare mechanical issue. The machine does have a design flaw in that it has a long three inch shoot for the grounds which makes it susceptible to clogs. Do not use oily beans!

The problem is that beans have particles and oil on/in them, jamming the switch which is giving you this message. Invert the unit on a hard surface covered with newspaper and give it a couple of strong taps against that surface. The junk should fall out and get you going again. Clearly, you're missing something when disassembling the unit.
