Question about Saeco Incanto Classic Espresso Machine

Coffee too weak

I just bought a Saeco Incanto, but after adjusting the coffee dose adjustment and SBS find that it is still far too weak to drink.

Any ideas on how I can make a strong coffee?

    Mine too, with time it became stronger. Now i just serviced the machine and its back to weak coffe. Its a basic saeco incanto model. Coffee grind setting 10, coffe amount 2 dots past the middle of the knob,



    I tried reducing the amount of water thinking that the coffee will be more dense but no difference.

Make coffee stronger on a saeco machine


Hi, adjust coffee amount knob more towards +, which will grind more coffee for brewing. The knob is the smaller one inside the bean hopper.If the machine has digital display(Incanto Deluxe) it can be set in the menu.

My Saeco Incanto Sirius grinds the beans but does not pump out the coffee into the cup


If you already tried the previous suggestion (grind at the most coarse setting) and you still get no water, it may be the SBS brew valve.

As a test, run a blank shot by telling the machine you are going to add preground coffee but don't add any coffee. When you start your shot you should get plain water (probably tea colored as it flushes out some old coffee left behind from previous brews).

If you still get no water, then it is either your brew filter screen is plugged or the SBS brew valve is plugged.

Remove the filter screen and hold it to the light, can you see through all or most of the tiny holes? If not, soak it in a good coffee detergent and scrub it with a toothbrush until the holes are clean (DO NOT USE A NEEDLE TO CLEAN THE HOLES).

If it is the SBS brew valve, you can open it fairly easily to clean it but there are a couple of tiny parts and a spring so be careful.

And final thoughts - the SBS brew valve can be defective - I've had some that were too tight and simply wouldn't allow any water to flow at all. But since yours was working before, it probably just needs cleaning.

Grounds dry, non-pressed and jettisoned to bin. Pre-ground function fine. Otherwise, no coffe.


The solution to this Saeco Incanto Deluxe problem was simply tweaking the Program Menu settings. After receipt of the unit, I immediately set all settings to STRONG. This move proved to be a major complication because the machine could not compress the load of grounds being dumped into the brew unit. I responded by setting ALL coffee settings in the Program Menu to MILD and now only use the Large Coffee SBS setting for regular coffee (the coffee is still robust and delicious).. The expresso SBS setting and those SBS settings further to the left I use only with the small cup button. If I want a double I just do it twice. The machine was protecting the drive shaft and brew unit from damage by stopping the press and jettisoning the grounds when I had the machine programmed the other way. I hope this helps other owners.

Check the chamber under the valve, make sure that it is not filled with coffee grounds and water, also there is a small discharge chute under the chamber to the drain tray make sure that is clear.

how tight is the coffee packed in the dripper, the flow rate is determine by how tight the coffee is, thats why you always see the barista press the coffee against the disk of the grinder dispenser in a coffee store
