There is coffee powder inside/under the brew group.
Ground coffee inside or under the brew group can have various causes. Most causes are not directly due to a technical default.
Powder during first use
Some coffee powder was left behind after testing
We test all machines before they leave the factory. Although your machine has been carefully cleaned, there might be some coffee residue left. We guarantee, however, that the appliance is absolutely new.
Powder when brewing a pre-ground coffee
Only use one stroked coffee spoon of pre-ground coffee using the coffee spoon provided.
Restart the machine by switching it OFF and back ON
Select pre-ground coffee with the aroma strength button
Add one stroked coffee spoon of pre-ground coffee
Press the ESPRESSO button
Powder after some days of use
This is normal behaviour due to the fineness of the coffee powder
