I have a sage barista express ive had it for longer than a year now. Lately it seems like any coffee I but and make is starting to taste the same. Have been using different beans from different roasters, uses after 7 days from roast date and then put in coffee gator canister. If i bulk buy Ill normally put it in an airtight container and in a freezer. Then open for use.
Im measuring 18g of coffee, the extraction seems to be fine, making milk based drinks mainly. Grinder setting set on 6/7. Timing seems to be around 30-40secs depending. What am i missing? I used to get great flavours before from a few cups from roasters like northstar, foundry etc. I regularly descale the machine, I am from yorkshire so have been using tap water. I normally run 2 shots to warm up before i make a coffee. does the temp of the milk affect it that much? I normally stop when the pitcher gets too hot to touch.
a bit frustrated atm. Help needed
