  1. Newbie post. I got a Rancilio Silvia in January and I'm starting to fall out of love with it. Its a V3 without a PID. I can't pull a good shot that anything like what I'm happy with. I have worked in several half decent coffee shops on various machines with joy! So on to the process.. I've got a Eureka Mignon grinder which is dialled just about as fine as it will go without getting those little pebbles. I weigh, time and double check everything to the point of obsession (its not fun). It always seems to run fast (sub 20's for 60ml) or really really slow (1 min for 60ml) I cannot find a happy medium. The coffee is Taylor Street Barista's Bechmark Espresso (not to be confused with Taylors of Harrogate) its really good coffee. Their own shots - amazing, mine- sour. I aim for 18g's in the basket, but I find when I put this much in and tamp it properly the coffee makes contact with the brew head and its ruined.. (I often find the portafilter difficult to get into the group head when its got coffee in, when its empty its fine) - anyone else find this. If you put less in it just runs very fast indeed. Crema's often really thin as well. Any help much appreciated! Also - if anyone can recommend some accurate scales that would be great. thx
  2. Hi all, I just joined the forum and I'm planning to buy a coffee machine and a grinder for my house. Probably will go for a Silvia and a Mignon or Rocky or Mazzer Mini. Thanks all for your helpful posts.
