Hi
Check you grind. See if it is like grandulated sugar. If it is coarser than that, it might be you grinder has come apart. If not, it might be all you can get out of the machine.

GAGGIA TITANIUM........WEAK COFFEE


Try adjusting the grind finer, if that does not help then go to menu and make sure pre infusion is enabled.

Grinds too long coffee still weak


You can adjust the grind, finer will give you stronger coffee. Think water through sand vs. pebbles. There are also settings you can find in your owners manual for adjusting the length and strength of your "pull".
Try Julius Meinl espresso roast, it's dark, rich and sweet. Definitely my favortie.

Water and frother are weak


Basing on personal experience (you can find more on Google probably), solutions are:

On percolated (filter) coffee machines:

Check water temp, if water temp is insufficient , most common is scale heating element , faulty element, faulty thermostat.
Check if water is dripping right at the center of the filter, if it is dripping on one side because the orifice is clogged, that can result in weak coffee.
Coffee blend not well distributed on filter basket.

On Espresso machines:

Check water temp, same as filter coffee machines (thermostat element, scale on heating chamber).
Ensure that coffee is filled correctly in the filter cup (fill at level), and well pressed.
Ensure that the coffee mixture that you are using is not too coarse, buy the apposite one for espresso.
Ensure that you are not leaving the machine brewing for a time that is too long, and Italian coffee cup is very small, approximately one regular shot.

On the hob moka pots (espresso, Moka and Bialetti type):

This are the trickiest ones, you need art and practice to get a good espresso with a Moka, but when you learn, the result is better than what you may get with an home electrical espresso maker.
The frame on the hob must be not too strong, and the mixture coarse but well pressed, with water at level tag, or you will get a weak coffee.
On Mokas a good strategy is keeping hob at minimum, and turning up the flame at top when coffee starts coming out.

French and turkish cafetieres:

Ensure that you put enough coffee, water hot enough, and that you left the infusion enough time to get a strong coffee.

Note: insufficient pressure and clogged lines on electric machines never give you a weak coffee, exactly the opposite.
Not pressed mixture always gives weak coffee, but too much pressed mixture may give you coffee with bad taste.

Pressure is weak.


I am a certified tech for laspaziale Are you thinking the pressure is low because the gauge on the front panel does not go all the way to the green ? many of them didn't right from the factory. the pressure is not adjustable and unless it is really low don't worry about it

The grounds are sloshy and the coffee is weak - I think that the coffee is leaking out as the hot water is being pumped through the ground beans


I think I have the answer to this: when mine started doing the same thing, I found that coffee grounds had accumulated and were blocking the seal of the water supply with the brew-group.
The Behind the brew-group is a clear tube with o-rings that slides into the brew group to supply water. One or both of these is clogged with accumulated coffee grounds. Try cleaning out both well.
