Thanks for posting this! I have a Barista machine that I bought a few years
ago. Mine’s a bit more recent than this video (mine’s a Saeco), but it’s
still the same concepts. I never knew coffee videos could be so cheezy.

renix says:

it’s called the portafilter because that’s what it’s called on every

I have had one of these machines for years, and have definitely put it

You will need to see if; the machine turning on, the machine is warming (if
not then it’s not getting power), does the steam wand get hot when you are
waiting to steam milk, water flow through on your screen when you push the
brew button? If any of these do not work you could have a problem with
power (corroded connections inside, boiler no longer has a seal (not hot),
or a malfunctioning pump (not getting water from the tank to the needed
parts). I suggest running a cleaning cycle if it works.
