Posted Tue Jul 2, 2013, 5:49pm Subject: portafilter on B machine
I received a new machine from Breville, and I presume it is a B machine as the portafilter is much tighter, and has a slightly different design. However, I notice two other issues. First, is that in order to remove the coffee puck, I now have to use a utensil -- I can no longer knock it on the drain of the sink to get it out. Second, is that after the coffee is made, when I remove the portafilter, there is always a tiny bit of coffee that is left in the bottom of the portafiler (below the basket), that drips out as soon as the filter is tilted slightly. It tends to drip, and makes a mess unless I put something under the portafilter to catch the drips. Anyone experience these issues?
