How's the coffee in comparison to the 6910 a couple of weeks on?
Noticing my first real gripe with the EM7000...possible pressure limitation ?
My personal method of choice for making multiple coffees (eg 3 or 4 at a time as opposed to just 1 for myself), is to steam the milk for 1 and do the espresso pour towards the end of milk steaming...and then make the first Cappuccino.
Top up the milk, get the next lot of coffee grind....and same procedure as above for the 2nd Cap...and so on.
With the EM6910, I used to find that by the 3rd or 4th espresso pour, the machine would struggle to force the water through the grind and I would end up with an over extraction and little espresso in the cup. I used to compensate for this by easing off on the tamping for the last Cap.
With the EM7000 (using the exact same method of Steaming and Espressing)...I find the same problem occurs from the 2nd Espresso Pour....so much so that the Needle on the Meter goes right to the limit. It can't be the grind is too fine as it is the same grind setting I always use...and the individual ones I make for myself during the course of the week are all great.
I performed further tests by just doing Espresso Pours (without resteaming the milk)..and all of the Pours are successful. So I can only assume that the EM7000 doesn't have the same level of pressure when combining Milk Steaming with Espresso Pouring that the previous EM6910 had ?
Or I have a problem with my new EM7000
