I’m in Austin, Texas (read; HOT) and am working in a small walkup café with window service.
We’re fairly high volume and
are working with a new 2 gr La Marzocco Linea PB ABR - the one with scaled built in. I’m looking for some input from anyone else working on this machine and hoping to compile some experience in this thread.
My current issue: An extracted puck will stick to the screen about 1 of every 3 shots extracted.
The ambient temperature doesn’t seem to matter much as it will do it very early in the AM and even before opening. A quick on/off of the continuous brew button will dislodge the puck, then I’ll unlock the portafilter and keep on as usual. It’s become a habit now, this little workaround, but occasionally that quick tap of the button isn’t enough and the puck still sticks. This machine is wonderful but this problem is very annoying and makes for a quick mess and fault in workflow if I’m not careful.
Does anyone have experience with this?
