    EM6910 NEWBIE-->Help

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi ALL,

    Iam new in this forum, and a newbie to this forum. Didnt know that coffee addicts has forum too (thought only car enthusiasts like me..).

    Anyway, I own an EM6910 for bout half a year now, and only used them couple of times.

    The questions that I have:

    1) Why are my pour of the coffee very fast? I know that its gotta be the grind, but I will try to adjust the grinder again). Any other reason?
    2) Whenever I use the steamer to steam the milk, it takes very long to steam, why is that?
    3) What are your preassure shown on the dial, when you brew the coffee?

    Thanks...sorry for the newbie question..

    Hope someone will help me on this...

    1: What grinder are you using ?

    2: IF supermarket beans or coffee chain... Stale beans will do that

    3: Which basket are you using..

    4: How hard are you tamping

    Re: EM6910 NEWBIE-->Help

    hey, thanks!!!....i think it was the coffee beans tat was stale...it was grinded for like a few months already..I had a laugh

    iam using the sunbeam em0480 grinder. i juz grind my newly open coffee beans and grind them at scale number 10.

    Now the only problem that I have is steaming the milk. I have change the settings from factory settings to dryer. It steams pretty quickly, but iam not getting the 100% silky texture. Theres still many very small bubbles.. *:(

    any other way that I can eliminate the bubbles..?

    ohh, btw, I dun understand no 4 and no 5...

    Do a search via the [Search] link for both of these but dont forget to set This post was made in the last... to greater than 1 Week which is the default I think. All this stuff has been covered in great detail by some pretty impressive coffee tech-heads. Good luck.

    Theres your problem! Get some fresh beans ( forget supermarkets or even pre-packaged beans at cafes ) and you will be amazed at what these machines can produce.

    The steam on the Sunbeam is pretty slow....it can take a minute or more easily. They skimped on the steam in my opinion. I would have settled for a single boiler and stronger steam !

    Well i think the steam on the em6910 is pretty decent. Its just technique and practice. I find steaming milk on my 6910 better then the two group commercial unit we have had work.

    Also im able to produce better latte art with the 6910 then the big machine at work.

    So im saying the steam is pretty good you just have to learn to use it properly....practice mate. ;) ::)

    The 6910 steam is adequate in my opinion but still seems slow compared to my Expobar.
    Given the choice Id have the Expobar very time for steaming as I get good milk for art from both.

    The big Expobar at Di Bartoli almost textures the milk by itself in the blink of an eye.
    If I could have it at home.......

    I am still using my nearly 3 and a 1/2 yr old 6900 with same grinder and use it everyday and love every moment of it the biggest thing is to go and do the sunbeam course and search this forum everyday i do and am always learning new things.

    Practise and more practise will make for great coffee year round
