What is E61 group head?

E61 group heads are an espresso machine group head design that have been around since 1961. It’s a design that is very tried and true and is one that is used on many of our prosumer grade espresso machines and even some commercial machines like the Faema Legend and the Faema Jubile.

Are all E61 Groupheads the same?

not all e-61 heads are true e-61 heads. the patent has run out and there are several aftermarket and non-faema versions, some w/o pre-infusion, and, iirc, some that aren’t even thermosyphons. Good point! At some point we should try and group the various E61 groups (original, variant, imitation) and categorize them.

What does E61 mean on a coffee machine?

E61 is the name of an espresso machine brought to market in 1961 by the Italian company Faema. This machine brought in a new era of espresso makers. Not only was the E61 the first heat exchanger machine, meaning that fresh water was used for making espresso instead of boiler water.

Why is my group head leaking?

If the grouphead leaks from the space in between the portafilter and the grouphead during brewing then the group gasket is either worn out or out of place. This gasket needs to be replaced typically every six months to a year. Use a flathead screwdriver to pull the shower screen down and off the machine.

Is Profitec German?
