    wet puck

    Sorry this question isn''t as sophistcated or technical as others on the forum. Just purchased a replacement machine which makes reasonably good coffee for a budget machine. The problem I have is the coffee soup left in the basket afterwards which is rather messy. My old machine would generally leave a dryish puck which could be tapped out.

    Anyone know whats going wrong? I thought I might be using too finer grounds but they''re the same as I used in the other machine. The coffee is great with good crema.

    It would be quite helpful to have a few details about the machine, coffee and grinder you are using. Also whether you use a tamper (hevay or light tamp).

    one more thing...how much coffee are you using? It doesn't sound like you are using enough.

    Sorry guys it's not a sophisticated machine which no doubt you have. But a simple domestic one. http://www.minky.co.uk/index.php?page=p ... uct_id=168.

    I have since found it's made in China with model number SK-201A, under the manufactures name of Wellseek.

    I fill the basket to the brim ( I use ready ground) and I've tried hard and soft tamper. Coffee is good, well I think so, with a good crema. I'm going to try some different coffee, so Ill see how it goes.

    Thanks for the input.

    I suspect it has a pressurised crema enhancing widget in the portafilter and no 3 way valve for pressure release....so wet pucks will probably be unavoidable

    Your right it does have a widget. I've changed to a different coffee which has made it slightly better in that the puck is more solid and not sloppy.
