Hi
If you steam and then try to make another coffee, you need to cool the boiler off. Turn the steam off by pushing the steam button again, then open the steam knob and running water until the flashing light turn to green steady. Then make you coffee.

Are there different types of espresso coffee?


The classic form of espresso is a small shot (2-3oz) of pressure brewed coffee made using about 1tblspn of finely ground coffee. There are several ways in which this original format has been altered to come up with various types of espresso coffee drinks. Here is a short list of some of the more popular varieties:

Americano - espresso with hot water added to dilute the strength

Macchiato - espresso shot with a small amount of frothed milk on top

Corretto - espresso mixed with a bit of alcohol

Cappuccino - a shot of espresso topped with 1/3 steamed milk and 1/3 frothed milk

Mocha - a latte with chocolate powder/chocolate sauce added

Saeco cappuccinatore not taking milk, instead blowing some steam into milk


Try this, the valve diagram shows that you twist the knob, but you left it up and down to adjust the flow. You could also check that the container you have the milk in, is lower in height than the cappuccinatore to help it siffin the milk up from its container. Make sure the cappuccinatore is fitted correctly pushed in fully and half fill a cup with milk and pull the valve adjuster up a small amount and push the button. It should start pushing steam out the cappuccinatore and then within a few seconds it should start siffining milk up the tube.

Sissling when making espresso


First of all, do you steam your milk first then immediately brew the shot? If so, that is your problem. When you depress the steam switch, the temperature elevates way past what is optimal for brewing espresso. If you try to brew immediately after steaming milk or using the hot water feature, that would definitely be why your espresso sizzles. Your shot will likely come out burnt tasting, thin and just plain rancid.

Either brew your shot first (learn temperature surfing for your best shots), or immediately after steaming milk, turn off the steam switch, depress the brew switch (without portafilter in place) for a few seconds until no steam comes out- only water (wait till you don't hear the sizzling sound). Hope this helps.

Jura S9 Capresso Machine "Fill System" Message


I think you use too fine grist on the grinder, or the coffeebeans are really dark and moisty. Try to set the grinder to a coarser grist, for dark roasted coffee it`s not recomended to to use any finer than medium grist. However, the sieve in the brewing unit could be clogged, and you need to clean this out. Put a finger up in the brew unit just along the grounds blade, you will probably find a lot of old fine coffeeground up the. Clean it up as best as possible, and then try to make coffee with coarser grist. If this helps, it`s smart to run a cleaning program to be on the safe side.

If nothing of this helps, you don`t have a choice, you have to send it for service, then the brew unit has to be dissasembled and cleaned from the inside.

I have had this machine for four years now, and it is FAB!!! it does have an extra step to it- after you put in coffee and add water to the reservoir, you DO need to prime the pump. So here's what you have to do:

-Fill the reservoir with MORE water then you think you will need, fill the coffee filter with the standard amount of finely ground bean.
-Turn the machine to "on," making sure the "steam" switch and valve (knob) are off.
-Wait till the green "ready" light comes on, then put an empty cup under the steam wand and turn the valve on (the steam switch is still in the off position). Hot water will come out of the steam wand, allow it to flow until the "ready" light blinks off. Discard this.
-close the steam valve, stopping the flow of water.
-turn the "steam" switch into the on position, wait for ready light to come on again.
-put your milk container under the steam wand and froth to your heart's content (this machine makes GREAT frothed milk and you should use a large enough milk container to allow for that! *smile*)
-when you have finished with the frothing, close the valve and flick the "steam" switch back into the off position. You are now ready to make your espresso.
-push either of the two buttons, ie one or two cups, and the espresso will start to flow. There is a way to set the length of time for each of the two buttons, but I have had mine set perfectly for so long i don't know how to do it any more. Sorry!

This has been the best machine I've ever used, and has lasted me for years. I heartily recommend it!

Overheat?


Typically it give the ventilate because insufficient amount of water/steam is comming through. A clog in one of the lines is usually the problem. This causes all kinds of headaches. There is nothing you can do so I suggest you do a search for an Authorized Saeco reapir center and have them do a service on it.
