  1. Hi All, Owing to my main grinder suddenly going down without warning I'm using my backup (an old Krupps burr grinder). The particle size on this grinder is slightly larger so I compensated by tamping firmer and my machine still choked slightly. I was wondering what people's experiences had been regarding finer grinding vs firmer tamping vs volume in portafilter.
  2. Afternoon all. I just got into this espresso coffee, namely for making lattes in the morning and just got the Sette 270 and the new (to me) Gaggia Classic up and running. A quick history on what I have tried so far. Fresh (beans)from a local store. I started with a setting on the Sette of about 3 with 18g of beans in a double PF basket.

I'm asking for £35 for mine with FREE delivery, it's in perfect condition to!

I put enough coffee into my double portafilter to just over the top and level it got with a knife before tamp. Is this too much coffee for a double expresso? i end up getting coffee in the head trying to insert it into the machine! Again I appreciate your patience and quick an
  5. Sometimes when I dose 18g into a 18g VST basket it does not always fill to top. What do people do to level off. Is a tap to the side ok to do?
