  • Post pull dribble

    This is probably a silly and pedantic question, but Im curious so Ill ask anyway. And sorry about the title... I tried to resist... :.

    Anyway, I currently own an EM5600, my previous machine was a Gaggia Carezza. On both machines, while steaming the milk (after pulling the shot), a "dribble" of coffee comes through the basket.

    Is this normal-ish or simply the consequence of owning low-end machines?

    In regards to achieving the "best shot" possible, should the "dribble" be discarded or included?

    thank you peoples

    YES... And as to how the system works and your dosing levels..

    I would not ...

    But then your the only one that can decide if it makes the final result any better..   It could be the best part of the shot    But I doubt it.

      Dosing levels... as in too much or too little?

      Ha! if youve tasted my coffee, it could be the best part  :P

      But... my non-pressurised baskets and grinder are due any day now...

        Hard to say... Gut feel.. Under dosing... But the only way to prove it is to try and then make teh call.

        Is the puk sloppy or nice and dry at present.. If dry and a slight shower screen imprint (SLIGHT), then just the machine and teh way it releases pressure or has a little blow back from teh steam side ?

          After the steaming, its nice and dry. But just after the pull, it is usually pretty sloppy. It was the same for the Gaggia.

            Just thought Id post a quick update in case someone else has the same issue.

            Basically, after acquiring the non-pressurised basket and getting the grind right, the problem all but disappeared. Its a whole new coffee machine.

            Thanks to everyone for the advice here and elsewhere in the forums...  [smiley=thumbsup.gif]
