    Lack of Crema

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi All

    I have just had the control board replaced on a Fiorenzatto Bricoletta e61 machine after it died. Since the repair it has been difficult to get crema and the coffee is bitter despite using same beans and grind settings on my Mazzer Mini which previusly produce good results.

    Any suggestions re the underlying problem.

    Thanks in advance for any advices

    Hi JJ, and welcome to CS! ;D

    Unfortunately the only thing I can offer is the obvious--something has changed. >:(

    I suggest you need a calibration of both heat and pressure to make sure they are correct. That will at least give you a starting point.

    Some of the site sponsors (left) offer this service.
