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.
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!
