    Default Coffee Puck sticking to shower screen

    Hi Guys,
    Anybody else suffer from the puck sticking to the shower screen when you remove the portafilter?
    I ususally get this 50% of the time and it drives me nuts.... I’m assuming it’s to do with the suction when the valve does the business?

    I have tried everything to minimise the issue. Using a 18gram shot with the standard double basket with an IMS shower screen. Tried different force tamping, twisting, varied the shot weight. Doesn’t make any difference really.

    Any thoughts?

    This normally happens to me if I don't leave enough gap for expansion of the puck, so to resolve (assuming a consistent weight in) I loosen off the portafilter by ten/twenty degrees or so. Whether you can do that may depend on the seal/gasket on your particular machine.
