Filter basket overflows

This can have different causes:

  1. The drip stop is blocked
  2. Too fine ground coffee: Espresso coffee is too fine and not suitable.
  3. Using decaffeinated coffee may clog the bottom of the coffee filter. You have to fold the edge of the coffee filter well to the side.
  4. Do you have a salt-based water softener connected to the water pipe? Often these are central systems for households. Calcium and magnesium are seeded in sodium. This water has a lower EC value and a higher surface tension. The water penetrates slower into the coffee powder and the filter container overflows. We recommend max. Brew 8 cups or use other water.
