First post on here as a new “proper” coffee machine owner.
Have just bought a Sage Barista Express and I’m having trouble getting the perfect shot.
I went through a full bag of Lavazza Rossi beans and didn’t pull a decent shot. Have just received a bag of fresh beans and found an instant improvement.
Pressure gauge is perfect, no problem there and the taste is amazing.
However, it’s taking about 9 seconds before the coffee starts pouring, which the book says over extraction, but total time for the shot to take is 20 seconds which means under extraction.
The grind is set to 6 and I’m getting 16/17g
any help would be great as I don’t want to waste a full bag of these amazing beans.
