should the topfilter of the pavoni gruppo be cleanedgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Coffee Related Buy/Sell/Trade : One Thread
Evening all... I note the importance of keeping the machine clean.. Does anyone routinely clean the top steel filter retained behind the main o-ring sealing the gruppo assembly. When flushing the group after a session , I note the run thru is tainted brown. I have this paranoid fear that rancid oils are poised to ruin my day, and terminate my crema with extreme predjudice. Also .. how do we stand on leaving water in the machine....Boiled...sterilised, what do you think?

Most definately. I clean mine out about once a week (although use my machine everyday). Be careful. Should the O-ring get too lubricated then the filter and ring fall out. Good luck.
