Why is water coming out of my steam wand?

by Paul Sadler

  • All steam wands on Italian coffee machines will have some condensed water sitting in the bottom when sitting idle. 
  • Before steaming, purge water for 1-2 seconds until you get to dry steam. 
  • If you are using a single boiler coffee machine, check that you have switched from brew mode to steam mode, and also, waited for the boiler to reach steaming pressure.
