How do I get a great shot?

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...

Is the Rancilio V3 a better machine than the new Breville BES840xl? Is the PID option on the breville a big deal? Does it matter if you brew the espresso first and steam the milk second?

Question by David M.

Can this machine steam and brew at the same time? I find that if I steam first, the foam rises and all comes out at the end in a blob. We have a Salvatore at work which does both simultaneously and I am spoiled. This machine would be my choice if it does both.
