This is the current production filter screen for the Robot - Manual Espresso Maker. The screen is now a bit thicker, completely flat and the centre pin is now made from silicone rubber. The silicone pin is now easier to grip and does not get bent if the screen is accidentally hit by the piston.
The silicone pin extends on the back by 1mm, this does not affect the coffee. If you find the difficulties of using the filter screen, please use filter paper instead.
The filter screen is placed on the bed of tamped coffee. You MUST use the filter screen (or filter paper) when brewing, otherwise when you add the water you will just make a big sludgy mess.
After tamping, put in the filter screen or filter paper and use 2 fingers to firmly push the screen (or paper) downwards. If you are not pushing the screen firmly, the screen will wobble and being damaged after applying the pressure.
Do not attempt to pump the arms up and down, as this will just disturb the puck, the filter screen and the water. Raise the levers after making coffee the metal screen may have moved out of place. The piston may hit the filter screen if you push the lever arms all the way down during the pull to expel the remaining water. So the best is stop pressing when you feel the piston is against the screen.
