My Philips Espresso Machine discards coffee powder without brewing coffee

Published on 03 April 2024

Your Philips Espresso Machine will throw away the coffee powder when coffee brewing is cancelled. Please read below to find more information and solutions.

When using the pre-ground coffee function to brew your coffee, the machine needs to be switched ON and ready for use before adding pre-ground coffee into the pre-ground coffee compartment. 

Please use only one full scoop of coffee grounds, with the spoon provided, and strike off the excess. Exceeding the amount of coffee grounds can cause the brew group to be overfilled and the coffee brewing to be cancelled. The coffee powder will be thrown away and no coffee will be dispensed. 
A dirty or clogged brew group can cause no coffee dispensing from the machine. It is important to rinse the brew group weekly. Follow the steps below or watch our tutorial video: 
  1. Switch OFF the machine and wait until it is completely off and does not make any more noise (this takes about 15-20 seconds).
  2. Open the service door and remove the brew group by pressing the “PUSH” button to the right side, hold it, and pull it towards you.
  3. Rinse the brew group thoroughly with lukewarm water and let it air-dry before placing it back.

The brewing will be cancelled if the coffee beans are not enough, before brewing your coffee. The coffee powder will then be thrown away into the coffee grounds container. 

To fix this, ensure that you have enough coffee beans before you start brewing.
