    Wet Steam????

    I have a Marzocco Linea and and both steam wands are shooting out really wet steam. The water level is were it should be. Any idea''s why this is happening?

    Water level is a tricky thing if scale is involved. If the bottom of the sight gauge is scaled over with calcium deposits then the water will not be able to flow in the gauge properly and will not show you the true level right away. If it is scaled over at the top of the gauge the water has no way to equalize and the reading will be off.
    Have you ever walked through the aisle of your local grocer and smelled the death of a dying bean?

    Thanks for the reply. I think your dead on. We're taking a look inside this week to figure it out (it's a demo machine that the staff at the roastery uses everyday).

    Thanks Again,
    Steve
