Question about La Pavoni Europiccola EPC-8 Espresso Machine

La pavoni 8-cup espresso

Hello. The basket will not go back on. It appears the filter that the water should pass through, is lop-sided. Is there anything I can fix from home?

Hi.
Will it go on at all? You should be able to turn it about 1/4 turn to the left once it's on. How far can you turn it, if at all?
I'm not sure which filter you're referring to, so I'll cover both:
1. There is a shower screen in the brewing group of the machine. You would have to look up into the group from below, in order to see it. This should be just a press fit, it's held in place by a big O ring. If it's lopsided, you should be able to just push it back up into place.
2. There is a filter that sits in the basket. It's the one that you fill with coffee. It should just sit square in the basket. If it's lopsided, take it out and you should be able to see why it won't sit in there properly.

Fergus.

Water leakage through grounds when lever is raised on my La Pavoni Europiccola.


Hi your grind is to course and or your tamp is to loose. Even with the right grind and tamp water will filter down through the puck eventually.

Virtually no crema :-((


If you have tried different coffees and grinds then i would try different packing methods using a tamper to do so. Try packing very firmly to not so firmly and see if that works. Also you might find that you need a new double filter basket. I have seen this in quite a few machines where the holes in the basket can become very slighty enlarged from what they were originally and what this does is allows the coffee to flow through the basket too quickly and therefore leaving you with poor crema by not getting a good extract from the coffee. I hope this helps.

All the best

Is water supposed to be added to the base and top chamber of the coffeemaker?


Only the base, then the water passes through the coffee as steam, re condenses and makes a great cup. Try and use specialty grade coffee,ground to mocha pot coarseness for the best results, not filter grind

On a La Pavoni europicola which way do the piston seals get installed, both the same way or opposite to each other?


Normally on lever machines the top seal sits with the cup area(slash in gasket) facing up and the bottom facing down.

First Cup Is Cold From La Pavoni Europiccola


If the machine works great after the first cup then it is possible that the heat for your first espresso went to heating the portafilter or the cup used to brew into, try warming the portafilter first by running some hot water through it first.

Directions on how to use my Black and Decker Espresso Mio coffee maker


Be sure the red rubber gasket is in place and clean (ridge side in) and bottom water cup is screwed firmly on to avoid leaking.
HOW TO USE:
1) Fill the bottom water cup with cold water up to the inside lip.
2) Set funnel into bottom water cup
3) Fill coffee basket with expresso grind coffee and level off. (Do not tamp or pack). Make sure it's filled to the top.
4) Place filter onto coffee basket and set coffee basket into funnel
5) Place brewer over bottom water cup and screw firmly into place.
6) Place unit with lid in the center of a microwave oven set on high for 1-1/2 minutes. If boil over occurs, reduce the brew time in 10-second increments until no boil over occurs.
7) Grasp handle to remove unit from microwave when finished brewing.
8) Remove lid and check the level of espresso in the brewer cup. Standard brew is at least 2 oz. If you don't have this level brew, replace lid and microwave on high another 10 seconds. Wait 20-30 seconds for bubbling to stop.
CLEANING/ADDITIONAL BREWING:
1. Under cold running water, unscrew the bottom water cup. CAUTION: It is normal for some water to be left in the bottom water cup. Both the coffee basket and any water in the bottom water cup will be extremely hot! If you prefer, allow the unit to cool for at least 3 minutes before unscrewing it.
2) To brew additional espresso, rinse Funnel, coffee basket and filter, then repeat brewing steps 1-8 above.
3) Parts are top rack dishwasher-safe -- hand washing filter is recommended.
