Olympia Cap Gauge for Cremina Maximatic ( new gauge with used modified cap)
Perfect for troubleshooting
Posted by Carole on 5th Apr 2018
After a rebuild, I was pulling bitter shots. This cap was essential in allowing for quick reset of the pstat on 1983 cremina. It's pretty enough to leave on. Very useful to see the bounce in pressure when pulling shots and relieving false pressure. I really love it. Inexpensive, great value. Mine was brass gauge on brass cap.
A must for the home barista

I couldn't be happier. While I have used Maxiamatics and Creminas almost exclusively for the last year or two I learned a lot about my machines after using this cap/gauge. It really helps dialing in your vintage Olympia . Typically, a gauge is used to set the boiler pressure, but in this case it can also tell you the boiler pressure while pulling a shot or steaming.
I would encourage Johnny to have more of these built. I think there's a market.
I only had a few minor complaints. The cap I received had some loose brass filings and the gasket was a bit worn. Still, the cap and gauge worked flawlessly and I would highly recommend the purchase of this or similar cap/gauge.
