:huh:
Hi Colin,
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!

Best, Donavon

It could be psychological...

unlikely that you have effected anything.

Descaling is always good --
Have you changed anything else; coffee grind, blend, etc?

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.

The espresso will never splurge out -- not under any circumstances.

Your machine has a pressurized portafilter - so, short of defying the law of physics, there is no where for great gouts of espresso to spring from.

I have just switched over to standard NP baskets on the Solis SL70 and the change is wonderful.

I suggest to all owners of machines that they discard the pressurized filter baskets and get real.
