[Homeroast] Liquid dripping from HotTop?

Hmm ... I never had water come out in my Hottop. Sounds like it could be content related.

Hi all,

My original email literally took 7 days to show up on the list (sent on the 10th and showed up on the 17th) so I didn't even realize
that anyone had responded until I checked just now.  I'm puzzled as to why that happened and wondering when this one will show up.
I just recently resubscribed to the list and this was my first post so I'm hoping that future posts aren't delayed.

Anyway, the dripping hasn't been consistent since I posted.  I'm thinking that it's the water content since it didn't happen with
the previous supply that I had.  I'll get to check this when I get some new beans.  I'm just glad that I didn't order my usual 20 lb
bag so I'll probably be through this order rather quickly.


Thanks for all of the responses,
Gary

Hi Gary:


I have had, am on my 4th, Hot Top.

I have had one machine that did that but only once or twice. It stopped.

I decided that it was the water content in the beans and ignored it...

if this is a new machine I would call Micheal and tell him and have him suggest possible reasons.

You could have a flaw in your machine and I would rule that out asap.
