Hi guys, im still really struggling to get close to a 1:2 ratio. Can’t really understand where I’m going wrong. i measure 18g. Grind at a 4 setting on Sage pro grinder (have already moved the top burr to setting 4. break clumps up and put into portafilter. Tamp then put portafilter into machine and go. Closest I’ve got is 20secs at 36g out. Starts off at a slow speed as you would expect but then quickens up so fast. Will try and get a vid up shortly
Hi all, I found some a really nice blend from Coffee-compass (Gusto Gold) which I have been using for a couple of days now (I use them 4 days from Roasted) So.. 1) following my usual procedure i pulled a double shot and it came out perfectly 2) Once the boiler got back up to the correct temp (104) I pulled another double shot (following the exact same procedure- Same beans, grind, dose, tamp, temp etc) and it came out perfectly 3) all good right 4) Then i did step two again, but this time the shot run way too quickly, it wasn't even gloopy and looked like there wasnt any resistance in the puck. 5) I adjusted the grind a notch or two finer (in case the beans have been affected in some way by humidity), but it still ran super quick. I'm talking a double shot (30ml) in 10 seconds as opposed to 30ml in 27 seconds. After that I could not get it to run slow again. Is it because the machine got too hot possibly? Before pulling any shot, I leave my machine to pre-heat for 40min then run some water out. Then leave the PID to get to it back up to 104. I ran a shot this morning and it was better but a bit slow (although its better then it just pouring out.) and for this shot I did set the grind back to what it was in step 1 which was at 1E (Vario) I have an ESPRO VST calibrated tamper by the way so I'm being constant in that area and PID is managing the temp. Any ideas? Thanks
