I can't seem to get a great shot from the machine. I was told while pulling a shot that it should take 20-25 seconds. However, mine is running much faster, usually less than 10 seconds I'll have a double shot. I have the Baratza Virtuoso grinder, and a nice tamper, so there has to be something I'm doing wrong here.

Hello Rachel,

Depending on the coffee you are using I would be using a grind setting of around 8 to start.  The pressure on the tamper should be around 30lbs of pressure.  If your still having problems.  Please feel free to call me 1-888-411-5282 ext 5198(Shane) and I can help over the phone by your descriptions of what is going on with flow and so forth and get you where you need to be!  Shane

Thanks for getting back to me. I have the baratza preciso grinder. So the macro should be set at 8, what letter for the micro would you recommend?
