Hey there, new to the forum and in hope/need of some advice.
I recently moved from an espresso pure to the classic. First thing I did was to remove the pressurised basket and put a regular double in the pf. Now I cannot get a good 20+ shot, it is around 10-15 max and the crema is inconsistent. I have tried experimenting with different grinds and Tamps but I can't help but feel I am putting far more than 30 lbs in. The grind is like talc but I can't choke the machine and i am getting grinds in the bottoms of the coffee. Could the quality of the basket be the problem? It seems to go through
