Question about Rancilio Audrey

1 Answer

We've had the Rancilio Audrey now for a year and still not have had a perfect cappucino. 1. Milk. We use 3.5 dairy milk, cold before going under spout. 2. What is the middle (steam) button used for? Is it to be used in conjunction with the pressure steam release knob ? - what configuration? Lastly, any advice on how full should the ground coffee be in the twist-on metal sieve? Any help will be gratefully accepted. $700. is a lot of money for the not so perfect kitchen gadget. Last question - do you have a Rancillio service store/agent in downtown Montreal? We are a city of coffee drinkers... Louis.

  1. That is the right milk. Use a thermometer with the milk.
  2. The middle button is used for steam. It engages the high themostat for steam.
    1. Slightly open the steam valve
    2. Turn on the middle button
    3. Keep the end of the steam wand slightly above the milk surface (0.5 mm) so the steam incorporates air into the milk. (Takes practice)
    4. Open the steam valve as the boiler heats up. (Takes practice)
    5. When the milk get to 74 C (165 F) immerse the steam wand into the milk and heat to 82 C (185 F)
    6. Turn off the middle button and shut the valve.
  3. For 90 ml of coffee, use 14 gram of ground coffee. The coffee scoop that came with the machine holds 7 grams of ground coffee as it comes out of a grinder (not packed). Tamp the coffee after it is in the sieve.

SOURCE: leaking steam valve rancilio miss audrey

you should take out the knob first, than you try to disasembke the SHAFT of valve from the valve body, in this types(small espresso coffe machines) usualy producer use conical valve, without seals she close metal to metal, when you get out the SHAFT you will see one line on the conical end. for repairing it will be enough to visit one metal vorkery where they will take a small amount of brass from end and polish it. then you put it back and work again with your machine.

ps: notice you only polish the SHAFT , dont let them to short the more than 0.5 mm

SOURCE: where is the reset button on the rancilio audrey?

Once you get the top off, there are 2 thermostats on the top of the boiler. Your looking for the thermostat that is on the front of the boiler with the red button . Push the red button. If that didn't work check the ohms reading on the element. It should read 12 - 16 ohms. If it doesn't replace the element. Also did you try to turn on the steam button? Sometimes the thermostat with the red dot on it goes bad. If it will steam just replace the brew thermostat.

Do women who drink 3 or more glasses of cow's milk have an increased risk of hip fracture?


according to researchers in sweden and the british medical journal, yes, because of the milk sugar. low fat or skim reduces that. but what they fail to mention in many articles is that you need vitamin d to break the calcium down and help, absorb it into your body, thus helping bone structure. without d, the calcium just stores there and causes acidosis. best way to get vitamin d? sunlight. drink milk and go outside for an hour

Try filling both water and the milk container with the correct decalcifying solution - just slit the 500 ml that results from the 1:1 mixture and - without the coffee capsule - press the cappucino button. Instead of cappucino you will get the decalcifying solution running through the entire system including the connector for the milk container (unlike the recommended decalcification method where you use the extra nozzle). Good luck - worked for my machine which only produced steam but no milkfoam...

Descaling rancilio


Use Citric Acid.

  1. Dissolve about one tablespoon of citric acid in the water reservoir.
  2. Fill the boiler completely. Open the steam valve and start a hot water cycle until water comes out the steam vent. Stop the hot water cycle, close the vent.
  3. Let the boiler heat up about 5 minutes. Then turn off the power.
  4. Let the acid solution work for about 1/2 hour.
  5. Pull a 30 second shot to change the water in the boiler.
  6. Repeat flushing cycles (steps 3, 4, & 5) until the water looks clear. Refill the reservoir with water and acid as needed.
  7. Wash out the water reservoir.
  8. Pull 5 or shots to get the acidic water out of the boiler. Run a hot water cycle to clean the acidic water out of the steam vent.
  9. Let the unit come to temperature and look for leaks.
  10. Make some coffee and look for leaks.
  11. Froth some milk and look for leaks.

Can anyone suggest any non dairy hot chocolate recipes for me?


You can basically substitute any non dairy products for milk and then follow the regular recipe for hot chocolate i.e. heat the 'milk' and add chocolate till it melts and stir in sugar to taste.

Be careful with the sugar amounts as some of the non dairy milks ie soya are quite sweet already.

You can try using almond or rice milk as well or just buy a non-dairy creamer.

The milk frother has stopped rotating.....the milk heats but the frother doesnt rotate hence no froth.... am in india,mmbai so dont know where i can fix it !


The solution to rotation issues with the frother have been soved finally by myself after reading all the suggestion. The fix is simple... Your attachments have been magnitised and need to be demagnetized. It works a beauty. Run a magnet around the metal rings. Hint. Never leave them on the the frother when not being used.

New Rancilio Silva - steamed milk not perfect


please relay on your experience realizing that you now have new steam pipe(with different holes in the end of it and different pressure)
you will need to get use to them and get maximum quality of that steam pipe.
my advice:
  1. every time hold your hand in the bottom of milk container, so that you will prevent overheating which often gives the result you mentioned.
  2. every time you use cold milk.

Do you have any recipe for milk free ice cream? For lactose intollerant diet?? Perhaps Almond Milk or Soy Milk.


Here are some of the useful steps to make a milk free ice cream.
1.) Microwave the chocolate and butter-substitute for thirty seconds in a microwave-safe bowl.
2.) Add a dash of salt, and a splash of vanilla extract to taste.
3.) Put a scoop of marshmallow fluff into the bowl and stir it in thoroughly.
4.) Remove the spoon, lick it clean, and wait up to 5 minutes for your mixture to become room temperature.
5.) Place it in the freezer for 50 minutes, remove, and if it is still not frozen well, then stir it thoroughly and place it back in the freezer for another 20 minutes.

Steam problem


If the milk scalds, you're getting it hot enough. It sounds like you're not incorporating enough air into the milk when frothing.
Make sure that the holes in the tip of the steam wand are clear. Soak in water for 5-10 min. and wipe with a cloth (no abrasives) and clear the holes with a paper clip end. Blow the wand out nice and hard.
How is your steam pressure? It should be about 1.2 bar.
It could also be your technique. The wand should never be more than 3 cm into the milk. For cappuccino froth, keep the tip right at the surface of the milk, lowering the pitcher as the level rises. You should hear a "shushing" sound, no squealing.

Good luck!
