  • BFC Vittoria single group

    Hi,

    I just picked up a BFC Vittoria single group machine to upgrade from my Silvia. I am having trouble with getting a solid puck after the brew. The puck is solid but there is always a little chunk left on the shower screen. I am grinding with a Rocky, the brews a good. Can anyone help?

    grind a little coarser and tamp a little harder. Nice machine btw, i have the same one (although mine just blew an element )

      sounds like its a little over-dosed. The puck swells up with water so it will be higher than when you lock it in dry. Its normal to have a couple of grinds on the screen from turbulence, but not usually a chunk. Each machine / basket is different so dont just dose it the same way you used to do the Silvia. Have you tried the 5c test on this one?

        I have gradually been making the grind finer because I couldnt tamp any harder. Coffee flow rate is good. I had been over dosing - I found i could dose to the mark in the basket. I think I have the dose right now.

        I have seen the 5C test referred to - how does it work?

          I just found the 5c test - I will give it a go. Maybe I am overdosing. It just seems that any less coffee affects the quality of the puck. Thanks for your help.

          Sorry to hear about the boiler I am very happy with my Vittoria. I cannot belive the difference to the Silvia!

            Weighed the dose this morning, turns out I was over-dosing. A great shot and a perfect biscuit-like puck. Thanks for the help!
