Is so true. I I returned a coffee maker before and water got all over the
place. Another suggestion would be leaving the maker upside down for 24
hours, that also helps. Basically, any coffee products, espresso makers,
anything just leave upside down that also helps it dries the heck out of it

Great tip, ladies. Thanks! -Chris

No; you just have to make sure you go through the priming process again
like you did when you first got the machine. As long as you do that, you’re
fine. – Kat

What about filling up the pump with water when you do want to use it again?
I thought that damage would be done to the machine if the machine is turned
on and there isn’t any water in the pump

Thanks for the how-to! But what about a HX machine? It’s basically a single
boiler, isn’t it? How’d draining look like on the NS Oscar for instance, or
any heat exchanger?

Seattle Coffee Gear says:

Yup! It’ll post early next week – Kat

Seattle Coffee Gear says:

Good point! I knew there was some instance why one might need to keep it
open. – Kat

Seattle Coffee Gear says:

Stay tuned next week – we did one for Hx and dual boiler as well. – Kat

Seattle Coffee Gear says:

Great idea! – Kat

Thanks Gail and Kat!

Seattle Coffee Gear says:

No, no, no … thank YOU – Kat

Great series ladies; always helpful, as usual… I’ll take spareidentidy’s
comments and raise it to a dual boiler… Will you be including one in your
‘drainage’ series?

Seattle Coffee Gear says:

Yay! 🙂 – Kat
