Will this machine pump from a bucket without having a direct line? Like a 3 gal water jug. Also should it be filled first or will it fill when it's just installed empty?
Lukas W on Dec 10, 2016
Best Answer: If you want to run this machine from a bucket, you'll need something to simulate line pressure, like a flojet: It will, however, auto-fill its boiler.

Hope this helps!

can i use ground coffee??
A shopper on Mar 16, 2015
Best Answer: We recommend grinding the coffee yourself or taking whole coffee beans to be ground to an espresso fine grind. Pre-ground coffee is generally too coarse for espresso, as it's generally meant for drip brew.
