    Non-Pressureised Basket for Via venezia

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Where can I source a non-pressurized basket for a Via Venezia?

    My daughters been using the machine with pre-ground coffee and now she is buying my EM0480 grinder. To get any improvement over what shes been used to she will need the non-pressurized double basket.

    Any help will be grately appreciated :)

    Cheers,

    Thanks to Angelo of Demeral Tamper I now know its the group handle that needs replacing - or modifying as some have done.

    Great service Angelo, much appreciated :)

    Cheers,

    Thank you Dean of Sibonis Coffee. *I will go with your suggestion to remove the pressure valve from the handle.

    Cheers,

    Yes, all sorted.

    I just need to convince my daughter to let me disassemble her group handle ;)

    I removed the pressure valve without any problems. Should I also have removed the black disk that is attached to the handle? If so, how would I do that :(

    im unsure of what you mean but if you are taking about the plastic inside your PF then it should be ok as long as your basket fits

    Yep, thats the bit I mean.

    The Sunbeam EM6910 had something similar in the PF and everyone recommended removing it because of the crud that collected underneath it.

    Maybe the same reasoning applies the VV ::)

    Hi Rusty,

    I recently got a Via Venezia and would feel comfortable making the changes myself, but I was just wondering if you could please post what I need to do to make the required adjustments and if the black disc does indeed need to be removed.

    On another topic, what grind level on the EM0450 did you find the best?

    Rusty, Remove the black disk as it creates extra pressure. Youll need to poke it out from the bottom.

    Grant. Do a search of this section and youll find detailed instructions.

    The one that gave the right poor ;D

    Sorry, I couldnt resist that ;) There is no across the board correct setting for any grinder. They all vary even between the same models. It depends on a lot of factors and experimenting is the only way to find the right setting for todays beans in the today;s weather conditions.

    Grant..,this is what I did with my emo 480....start near the middle about a 10-12 and work your way up/down from there...different beans grind differently in different conditions and at different ages even...might be a little bit annoying at first but you will soon see a pattern develop and get a "feeling" for your grinder and fave beans...
