I received a new machine from Breville, and I presume it is a B machine as the portafilter is much tighter, and has a slightly different design.  However, I notice two other issues. First, is that in order to remove the coffee puck, I now have to use a utensil -- I can no longer knock it on the drain of the sink to get it out. Second, is that after the coffee is made, when I remove the portafilter, there is always a tiny bit of coffee that is left in the bottom of the portafiler (below the basket), that drips out as soon as the filter is tilted slightly. It tends to drip, and makes a mess unless I put something under the portafilter to catch the drips. Anyone experience these issues?

If you have a /B, it will say BES900XL /B on the box.

I knock out my pucks on the /B same as I did in the /A, no utensil required. I also don't get any coffee spills. Do you have a plastic insert in your PF?

I did notice that the hole in the center of the portafilter is smaller on the /B model.

Des, I have the same issue with my older machine. Think it is my new calibrated tamper! If I empty the portafilter right away, no problem, but if I leave it in the machine for a while,  the puck sticks.

No plastic insert. I can't confirm from the box that it is a B model since it was shipped back with my old coffee maker. Do you know where else to look on the machine?

Does the number start with 1302? Pull out the water tank and look for the label.
