I recently got a Sage Barista Touch as a birthday present. I have wanted one on these machines for a while and was delighted in getting it. The instructions say that when you press the brew button it should not start to pour until 8-12 seconds and it should run like warm honey. I have been messing about with settings and double and single filters but don,t get anywhere near this. Mine start to drip at 3 seconds and runs for 25 seconds. this leaves about a centimeter of coffee on the cup (for a latte). I use fresh coffee beans and pre-heat the filter and cup. I think I may have a faulty machine but don't want to make a fool of myself and take it back to John Lewis if I am not doing something right. Please help.
Have had a Sage Barista Touch for about 6mths and after initial tweaking of grind size and brew duration it has been producing perfect crema espresso which coupled with the excellent milk frother has resulted in two very happy coffee addicts. Unfortunately the machine has just started producing longer, watery espressos probably about 1/3 of a standard mug deep (for a double - setting single seems to make little difference) and I cannot see why or what to do about it. Machine is kept clean and I've run all the cleaning cycles, brushed out the grinder etc and we are in a soft water area. Is it warranty time or is there something I'm missing? Same beans - always fresh (they don't last long in this house). Any help appreciated!
