Does your coffee taste off? Does it drip around your portafilter? These might be indications that it is time to put the Seattle Coffee Gear Tune-Up Kit to good use. Depending on how often you use your machine will inform your maintenance schedule. Typical daily users require maintenance at 3 or 6 month intervals. More occasional users may find that annual maintenance is sufficient.
More fun than a barrel of monkeys! Although if the monkeys had wrenches you could set them to work on your Saeco Via Venezia Espresso Machine maintenance with this handy tune-up kit brought to you by the Seattle Coffee Gear crew.
Brew head screen
Brew head screw

Best Answer:If you can't seem to remove the screw at the center, meaning the screw is either stripped or too stiff to break free, you can bend the screen around the screw to create a taco. This will break the screen (good thing the tune-up kit comes with it) so that you can remove the screen. After the screen is removed, it will give just a little bit of distance between the screw head and the bushing, so you can use pliers to grip the screw and turn it loose to remove it. From there, continue with performing your tune-up! :-)
Will the tune-up kit for a Saeco Via Venezia also work for an old Starbucks Estro Profi? Or is it a different kit?

Best Answer:Yes, the tune-up kit for the Via Venezia will work on the Estro Profi. Essentially, this is the updated model of that machine, with many of the same components, including the parts of the brew head.
