How have I not see this thread before. Hello! I only recently started making coffee at home, I have a Gemilai CRM3605 and a Fellow Opus Grinder at home. Recently I'm having issue with getting my puck pressure up to 9bar, water starts flowing around 4 or 5 bar only. Making my grinds finer causes even faster flow. Any sifu here got any idea why?

How old/fresh are your beans? If the grind size is right and the beans are fresh, it's likely the pump, OPV or water lines (scale). Go by elimination.

Holy thread revival by you. lol.
One of my fav gear for coffee.. is this double walled glass. Keeps the beverage hotter longer, but not hot to hold.

Complete noob here but what's an OPV?

My double walled glass too small, I need to get a bigger one. Recently tried making iced americano but substitute the plain water with Schweppes Ginger Ale, good stuffs

More reasons to buy more glasses! I got glasses from espresso and all the way up to 750ml thermos for on the go. Just ordered a smaller French press yesterday. Just finding more excuses to buy more gear lol.

Is it easy to use? You have to buy a separate grinder right?

I also need to look for a place to service my machine, the steam wand is leaking and dripping water when the machine is turned on.

I think usually coffee machines are quite standard, once you learn the basics. The machine itself is quite basic, decent enough to do a cuppa for its price.
But I believe its discontinued, newer models to replace it.

Yes you'll need a separate grinder, you can invest in a good hand grinder first before splurging on the expensive electric grinder. Or just buy off shelf ground coffee sweat.gif

i pulled trigger for a outin nano portable espresso machine for nespresso use. so far so good, very portable and easy to use just that the water reservoir is abit small, can put max 80ml water but just nice for lungo. not really into coffee yet but at least this is better than nescafe at office pantry.

Not suitable for espresso. Only last two finess step can use for espresso.
