    Problem with Icon

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi there.
    Last week I purchased me first coffee machine which was the Breville Icon, and I bought the Sunbeam EM0450, to go with it.

    Anyway I have had a problem when making my coffee. Whenever I finish pulling a shot, the coffee I receive is very weak. Also in the basket there is a lot of water in the basket on top of the coffee, is that normal?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Martin,

    What setting did you set on your grinder?
    Are you using presurrised basket?

    Try set the grind finer and see if it helps. Try different settings each time til youve found your favourite.

    I haven a Ikon as well and am using 13 on my EM480, however Ive found the readings on 450 and 480 are different.
    At work we have a EM450 with setting on around 6 which is similar setting on the 13 for my EM480. (anyone please correct me if I am wrong)

    I am using the same basket that came with the machine. At the moment am I using it on about 12. Should I put it down to 6?

    Should I get a pressurized basket? What difference does it make?

    Search //\/ (at the top) all posts for Breville Ikon and change the search to everything in the past year.

    With regard to your question, read everything you can about:
    - Unpressurised baskets
    - Fresh beans
    - Grind settings
    - Extraction times

    Then ask about anything you are unsure of.

    There are people here who have forgotten more about coffee than most of us will ever know - And they are more willing to help you out if you do a bit of searching first.

    Hope this helps.
