Hi, does anyone know if new gaggia classics have a high brew pressure as the factory setting. I'm having trouble getting a 20-25 sec shot, despite some heavy tamping and a fine grind. I'm wondering if the factory setting has been increased recently in line with gaggia now supplying pressurised baskets only. I've just got a new classic and the shop swopped the baskets so I'm using the non-pressurised ones. I read some posts suggesting some are as high as 11 bar and that reducing the OPV makes a big difference. Before I start tinkering I wondered if any knew for sure whether classics are 11 bar (ish) by default. thanks ps I'm currentky using the gaggia pre-ground coffee (until my grinder arrives). It seems pretty fine but this could also be contributing to the fast flow rate although I'm tamping as hard as I can!
