Heating up happens in two phases, firstly the boiler will heat up, building pressure inside. Your gauge or (manometer) will move up to or just below the green area, steam will be present & hot water but now we must ensure the E61 group head ( beautifully built ) gets up to temperature otherwise our shots of espresso will not brew correctly. The complete heating up process usually takes between 15-20 mins.
So there is a hack for this one, speeding up your heating process is not really practical but we have discovered through experience that you can fit an electronic timer to your power socket ( follow the manufacturers guidelines) and then program your morning/daily routine into the timer so then your machine is always up to temperature when it matters the most.

Yes on the left hand side a little up from the drip tray, it activates as you pull up the brew handle so you can then time how long you brew your espresso shot for.
