Flow Control Device for E61 group heads. (For wooden handle see Coffee Sensor E61 Flow Control walnut handle or below)

If you have to replace your e61 mushroom, due to mineral build-up and chrome flaking off - then this would be an ideal upgrade, as the mushroom is made from stainless steel, so the lime won't stick and there is no chrome to flake.

This kit allows you, to pressure profile by adjusting the pressure of water flowing through the coffee. The flow can be controlled due to its special needle valve, which allows for lengthy pre-infusion for even more saturation and extraction of your espresso drinks.

As the flow is modified, the pressure is shown on the gauge.

All the metal parts are stainless steel so you won't need to ever replace the mushroom, the chrome-plated brass mushroom starts to corrode after 3 years.

Product features:
  1. Long pre-infusion - adjust the length of pre-infusion 
  2. Control flow, lower pressure for 100% arabica, single origin, or light roast.
  3. Lever machine extraction: with pressure control 
  4. Use filter grind with lower pressure. 
  5. Stainless steel mushroom - will last longer than chrome-covered brass and has no mineral buildup
Kit includes:
  1. Stainless steel flow Control with a brass screw to prevent corrosion
  2. Coffee sensor 6mm black PVC tap x 1 and a choice of 2 handle heights
    1. Non-flip
    2. 180-degree flip handle- Suits models with a low group head.
  3. Coffee sensor pressure gauge 6mm with black face  0-16 bar (The gauge has a direct M6 thread on the back, so the installation is pretty simple and straightforward.)
  4. Teflon gasket for mushroom washer. 
  5. Teflon tape and a small hex wrench are needed for gauge installation;
  6. The bottom group spring is for cancelling the pre-infusion.
  7. Spare set of gaskets: 1 x mushroom gasket +  2 x  o rings for the stainless steel needle valve.
  8. Full-length installation guide and servicing manual

Frequently Asked Questions :

  • Q. Is my pump affected by the Coffee Sensor FCD? A. No Pressure reaches the standard 9-10 bar and is adjusted only if FCD is used.  
  • Q. Is the heat-up time affected?  A No, When FCD is at the closed position, it is just above the area where the water circulates slowly inside the GH, with the help of IN and OUT pipes.
  • Q Will my pump be affected in the long term?  A No - The pump will handle the FCD for a long time. The low pressure given by the FCD usage lasts for seconds.  
  • Q Which flow control handle should I use? A. Some coffee machines have a lower-positioned group head, so the standard handle could hit the body of the machine. In that case, it's best to use our flip handle, to avoid the chrome plate from behind the group head.
  • Q What are the spare gaskets for? A.  Spare gaskets are for E 61 mushroom and stainless steel needle valve.
  • Q Do all machines have the same water output? No - Each machine is different, rotary pumps work differently to vibration pumps and manufacturers have different E 61 groups.
