Question about Astoria Argenta SAE-2 Espresso Machine
Our Astoria SAE/2-GL has started to give off a strange smell from the staem wands and makes the taste of the milk a bit strange. Has anyone any ideas how to resolve this please?
Clean and purge your wands EVERY time you use them. If you leave milk on the wand, it gathers at the lowest point ( where the holes are) and as the wand cools, the air/steam, in the wand contracts, the condensation reconstitutes the mil, the contracting air/steam creates a vacuum, and sucks the milk back into the wand. If you turn the machine off, the cooler does the same thing.
You're reboiling milk at 250F + again and again.

The boiler is contaminated with milk and needs to be descaled and cleaned.
