  • Krups 978 Novo 4100 (Can I make it better)

    I have a Krups 978 that doesnt seem to make the greatest Espresso. I wondered if anyone has any experience with changing out the baskets or modifying it to improve results. Otherwise let me know if it is a lost cause.

    Re: Krups 978 Novo 4100 (Can I make it better)

    hey mts
    i had a similar novo something and found that unscrewing the black plastic section of the portafilter helped (somewhow). it basically created a naked portafilter.

    do u have a grinder?
    do you have a tamper? if i recall, the basket is around 53mm diameter so difficult to find a tamper that fits well.

    the baskets are also a bit funny where they have little hols and also thin lines...not sure why...i would try to find baskets that only have holes and see if that helps. i discovered that i was getting squirters from the lines.

    also, check out this: http://coffeegeek.com/reviews/consumer/krups_novo_series

    cheers

      Hi there,
      how do you proceed to unscrew the black plastic section for this: Krups 978 Novo 4100 espresso machine
      ?
      [It seems like I may have got one second hand.]

      If/when you unscrew the plastic section are all other functions saved? (1/2 cups selection, used coffee grounds ejection, etc...)

      Thank you for your answer!
