Coffee maker,why does my coffee clog in the filter basket and not go completely through?

Q. I have just bought a new coffee maker. The make is DeLonghi. It has one of those permanent filters and not the paper ones you throw away. It said on the instructions that you use 2 scoops of ground coffee for 2 cups, 4 for 4 and so on. It doesn't matter how many cups i make, at the end of it, a lot of coffee is still in the filter and hasn't gone through properly. This is my first time using one of these. Maybe i am doing something wrong but i've been going by the instructions. I'd be grateful for any help. If anymore info is needed, just ask. Thank you
Thanks to all who answered. It doesn't say in the manual that i can use paper filters. I think i will buy a finer ground coffee and see if that works.
Thanks again!

A. Try replacing it with a new one. If the problem still persists, you could write to the company and see what they would say about it. It could have something to do with the model you're using or maybe the grounds aren't fine enough.

What do you think of the Tassimo coffee maker?
Q. Compared to the others, if you know them too?

A. I'm afraid I have no experience of the Tassimo, but I bought myself the Douwe Egberts Senseo about 2 months ago. I absolutely love it, it's so simple and the coffee is always consistently lovely.

Having looked at the Tassimo website, I think it looks just as easy to operate and just as delicious coffee as the senseo machine. So the decision may come down to price - of both the machine and the refills. That's my only disappointment with my machine - the refill packs are more expensive than I thought they'd be. Have a look in the supermarket before you buy to get an idea of the cost involved with the Tassemo system.
