Posted Fri Jun 14, 2013, 10:48am Subject: Demoka M-364i?
Hello, all. I just received a used Demoka M-364i. I have not been able to find any documentation about it online, at least not in English. The unit came to me without any instructions. I found a website, translated through Google Translate, that shows the correct picture of the unit: Click Here (translate.google.com) . However, I don't really understand some of the details of it.
I'm guessing I need to switch the unit on and let it heat up for a while. Only after it is hot enough can I then press the button to brew the espresso. But then it does not stop brewing until I switch the brew button to off. How am I supposed to know when I should stop it? Every other espresso machine I have ever has simply brewed until all the water was gone and then it stopped. This one has a huge reservoir in the back, and the portafilter is only big enough for 2 cups of espresso, at most.
Would anyone happen to know whether I can put a different portafilter on this unit? I know the portafilters are measured in millimeters, but where should I take this measurement? is it the outer diameter of the portafilter where the metal lips stick out to screw into the unit, or is it the inner diameter where the basket goes in?
I know the members of this forum are the most knowledgeable group around when it comes to this stuff, so any help is much appreciated!
