  • Difference between e61 and e98

    I recently got my hands on a Faema Compact s1 e98 without a portafilter. The group head looks the same as my others machine which has e61. The e61 handle does fit in but I think it needs a handle that is more of a straight T shape as the handle I have has the T part on a diagonal, if that’s makes sense. Anyway been researching but haven’t found what the difference between e61 and e98

    Hi , the E98 uses mostly Cimbali parts, the portafilter will be Cimbali , as will the group seal. It's mostly based on the Cimbali Junior or M21 machine

      Yes as above, E98 is very popular group across numerous cimbali and famea machines.

      For the group seals, I had good success with the comical ones, and also keeping the area the seal sits against very clean.

      Cheers

        Has anyone been able to install a brew pressure gauge into an E98 Head? I have the S1 Compact too and wanted to put in a gauge for extraction pressure like you can with the E61 head.
