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.

When I brew a pot of coffee all of the grounds do not get wet Why?

Hello, Vicky -

It will help in answering your question to know the make and model of your coffee maker. You can choose Comment and add that information in the Comment box.

As a general answer, there could be 2 reasons for all of the coffee grounds not to be wet:

* You may be using a dark roasted coffee, which has a high amount of surface oils , making it difficult for the water to wet all the ground coffee beans during the brewing process. If so, you may need to follow the "hot bloom" method when setting your coffee maker up to brew. Watch the video here:

* The spout for the water to dispense in your model of coffee maker may have become positioned off-center

Along with only partially wet coffee grounds does the brew seem weak?

I assume you have already checked the user manual for your coffee machine to find if the partially dry coffee grounds issue is addressed in the Troubleshooting section. You may wish to visit the website of the manufacturer of your coffee machine to find if the problem is covered in FAQs or Troubleshooting for your model of machine.

Best wishes.

Saeco Vienna Deluxe -- Coffee weak weak weak

When the coffee is weak, that is often because the water is not at adequate temperature.

Check if the coffee is in right quantity and pressed in the right way. If it is than it means that the water was not hot enough.

Check water temperature, if water is completely cold, the element mus be replaced, if water is hot, but not enough, then replace thermostate activating the pump.

Krups Orchestro FNF243 - there are plenty of coffee beans in the machine but it started to produce very weak coffee more dirty water than coffee. How can I fix it?

I had the same problem with a 8250. I had to throw it out as the grinder stopped accepting oily beans. I suggest that you take all the beans out and take a "keyboard cleaner air can" and spray the heck out of the area where the beans get ground up. It'll spray grounds all over so do it outside!

Gaggia Titanium Weak coffee medium cup only produces a dash of water and weak coffee, also the ground is very course and I am going through lots of beans done the cleaning and re-calibration but still the...

The coarse grounds is definitely the problem. make sure your machines setting are near 5-8 depending on the beans you use.

You need to make 5 cups of coffee before you see the new grind size. Do not change the grind too often or you will not see what you are looking for.

If the coffee is still too coarse you may need to replace the grinder burrs.

or you should take it to a service center.

What is instant coffee?

Instant coffee is basically ground coffee that has been freeze-dried, packaged and sold. It is rehydrated by pouring hot water over top. This type of coffee is ideal for travelers or to anyone without a coffee pot/time to wait for their coffee to brew.

The problem is when I use pre ground coffee beans. The water doesn't run through. It comes over the top and the grounds get in the coffee. I buy them that way because they mark them down half price. I


There are whole coffee beans, and there are ground coffee beans, but there is no such thing as "pre-ground" coffee beans because you wouldn't want the beans to be ground AFTER making coffee.

If you have a problem using "pre-ground" beans, then STOP using pre-ground beans and grind them yourself.

I hope this helps.

My Coffee Gaggia Vision is grinding and the coffee is coming out very weak. The billet coming out is very wet and small. Any solutions or ideas?

see this matter causes:
Make sure there's water in the unit's water tank.

  • 2 Unscrew the shower disk from the top of the unit and rinse it. Dry the disk and screw it back in place.

  • 3 Replace the coffee grounds with properly ground beans. Coffee beans that are either too finely or too coarsely ground will adversely affect the flow of coffee from the machine.
  • 4 Make sure the coffee in the filter is not packed too firmly if the coffee isn't flowing at all. If the flow is too fast, tamp the coffee down a bit more with the tamper.
  • God bless you

    How many tablespoons of ground coffee are needed per cup of water in the Smart Brew coffee maker?

    For ground coffee, use 1-1/2 (one and one-half) tablespoons of beans per 6 ounces of water.

    For whole bean coffee, use two tablespoons of beans per 6 ounces of water.

    Coffee strength is a very personal preference, so use these numbers as a guideline for middle-of-the-road coffee, and adjust to make the coffee that you like to drink.

    Coffee Beans do not grind

    Try using the vacuum to clean out the grounds, then remove the brew unit and make sure the chamber from the grinder is clear.

    I have a Saeco Magic De Luxe. I am having a problem intermittent

    Could be the pump not providing enough pressure to force the water through the coffee. When using beans or preground, can you still hear the pump function?
