    Sunbeam EM6900 problem??

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

    Just did my Coffee appreciation course this morning in Melbourne, very worthwhile. I learnt a lot about espresso in general and especially about texturing milk. On the course they had several machines like mine and I noticed that when I open the hot water knob, there is this pulsating sound which is normal I think but the water in my machine is coming out in spurts as well and not as a contineous stream. I seem to recall that the machine at the course had a contineous stream of hot water coming out. Can another owner with an EM6900 please confirm this?
    Also the steam wand seems NOT to have a contineous supply, more like a changing flow of steam. I hope I made myself clear with what is my very first post.

    Thanks in advance,

    Dick

    In regards to the hot water, mine will either come out in spurts like you mentioned or a contineous stream. And the pulsating noise is normal. As for the steam, as long as its actualy steam and is heating milk in a decent time, I wouldnt worry about its flow.

    Hi Skamp

    Thanks a lot for your answer, for a moment I thought I had a faulty unit.

    Cheers, Dick
