I have yet another question about my machine that had air-lock. It seems that since I fixed the air-lock problem the machine does not give the same pressure (umph) it did prior to when the air-lock situation happened. I think that maybe, just maybe, it is affecting the taste of my coffee as well. I have noticed a slight difference (not sure if it's all in my head but it seems like the coffee is MUCH stronger now). I thought maybe I should run a descaling routine on it as the air-lock situation might have caused some grime etc. to move around in the piping, causing the taste to be effected but I thought I would as you what you think first, just in case you have any other suggestions!
No, I have stuck to my Lavazza blue label! And yes, the taste could be psychological, I agree. But how about the loss in pressure. Before the air-luck, whenever I made the coffee it was as if it were going to burst out of the machine. Now it just comes out with no sudden splurge. Just an observation. Maybe I will do the descaling and see how it goes from there.
