  1. Yes, I found the answer to the frothing milk problem ! Use the hot milk instead of the cappuccino ring. Allow the smallest amount of air to enter. Perfect micro foam.

  2. Hello, I’m new to espresso-making but does anyone know the amount of ground coffee does the portafilter basket hold? (grams)

      1. My machine is 5 months old. I use it twice a day. It is a simple machine and makes a decent cappuccino if recently roasted beans are used. Too bad the portafilter is made of an inferior material.
        William.

  3. Amit,Do you by any chance know a make that fits this machine?
    Also, do you know if it is safe, for the plastiv in the porta filter, to use Joe Glow to remove the coffee oils?
