Hello, I recently entered the magic world of home-espresso: now, I come from Napoli and I live in Geneva, so this basically is an attempt to survive the lack of proper coffee shops here and get something similar to my place's "caffè". So, I bought a 2015 Gaggia Classic, a set of non-pressurised baskets + a Naked PF from Edesia Espress and a Breville/Riviera & Bar Smart Grinder which I see got very good reviews around the forums and websites. Everything works fine, except I always end up with shots that come through too quickly. It's true that I'm looking for a ristretto, b
Just purchased the above machine from a forum member, however I have yet to find a sweet spot with my dosing.
