Filter basket overflows
This can have different causes:
- The drip stop is blocked
- Too fine ground coffee: Espresso coffee is too fine and not suitable.
- 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.
- 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.
