Why won't it brew?

Have you cleaned the two little holes in the head?
Mine quit working and I used a paperclip, straightened out, inserted into each hole then ran a cup through, inserted paperclip again, ran another cup of water through, then it worked like new again. These little holes get filled with coffee grounds as they punch through the top of the pod, this is where the water comes out to make your coffee. I now clean these two holes every 3 months or so. Keeps it working beautifully!

Coming out in short spurt will not coffee cut up

there are a few things that can cause this;
1) You may need to clean the needle in the coffee exit where the coffee pod sits and gets pierced when the top is closed. You do this with a needle, be careful the point of the piercing nozzle is sharp and the needle point is as well.
2) There is also a needle in the cup holder under the pod that cuts the hole for the coffee stream, this needs to be cleaned with the needle.
3) The filter in the water tank may be plugged and needs to be cleaned.
4) The pump may be clogged with lime and scale.
5) The heater element may be scaled with lime.
6) Items #3 to 5), to fix this use DE-scalier, or vinegar solution, the pickling strength works better than household variety, but both are OK.
7) run the cycle for coffee, no pod, 3 times, this should clear the taste of the vinegar.

Hope this is your solution.

Recently the machine started dispensing VERY weak (mostly water with a very light brown see through color) coffee. It does not happen every time although all coffee seems weak. It looks like the pods...

Hi imhofag,

The first thing to do is clean the projections on the piercers. Gunk will build up on them and they need to be cleaned periodically.

I would need your model number in order to help you take it apart.
Please reply if cleaning the projections doesn't help.

Nespresso machine does not punch hole on the capsules after close

This problem is most likely being caused by air being trapped in the system. To fix this, please follow the following steps: -

- Turn on the Machine, ensuring there is water in the tank
- Wait until the light stops flashing and the machine is ready for use
- Lift the silver lever on top of the machine into the upright position
- Press the coffee button on your machine
- Push the silver lever back, away from you, and hold it in this position for 3 seconds
- Press the coffee button again to stop the water flow

This procedure releases the air blockage in the system and your machine should function normally again.

Gaggia Evolution Filtering Weak Coffee

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.

Senseo machine has started producing very weak coffee

I don't know if you've tried this, but it works like gangbusters for me. I use non-senseo pods with the 2-pod holder, and they're too big for the 1-pod holder but not quite big enough for the 2-pod one.

I would frequently end up with a lousy, weak cup of coffee, and after a little investigation I deduced that water was flowing into the pod holder and AROUND the pod, without going THROUGH the pod directly. The name-brand senseo pods fit perfectly, and always produce a strong cup, even if I don't like their coffee, and it's because there's such a tight seal between where water flows in and where it flows out.

Simple solution: Put your pod in with the flat part facing up, and the bulgy part facing down. Press it down hard into the 2-cup holder. Run a little HOT tap water, and lightly wet the surface of the pod--not so much water that the pod starts floating in the holder, but enough to get it soggy. Then make your cup of coffee. The water will flow through the pod first, and kind of like siphoning gas through a hose, once it's started going through the pod it won't stop. Instant awesome cup.
