Hello fellow CG'ers!
I've had my Mini Vivaldi v1 for a few years now. It's been very reliable until today. This morning I tried to make a shot of espresso and it barely dripped any coffee. I though maybe it was a bad grind, but alas it wasn't. I then tried to clean the grouphead by soaking it in Cafiza. It looks great now but the issue it still there. Even without a portafilter in it, there's no water pressure.
The steam wand works great, but the grouphead isn't. Water barely comes out.
