Sage Barista Express

Recommended Posts

Hi!

so glad I found this forum. I’m trying to get to grips with my new BE. I have used so many beans it’s crazy. It is fun though it’s defo a steep learning curve.

Ive just bought one of these machines too..but having real problems making a single shot espresso that isn't over extracted (needle goes to 1 o'clock on dial).  Coffee volume is consistent (using razor)...so is tamping pressure and I've tried all grinds from 2,4,6,8,10 etc - can't find anything that seems to work and before I know it, I've run out of coffee beans and have to start all over again with another bag!

Surely there should be a simpler way to produce a decent single espresso using the single basket? 

 

Doubles seem a lot more consistent....

 

Any ideas?

Ditch the razor. 

Weight your dose. 

Use a double basket.

Whats wrong with the coffee you are making. Bitter? Sour? 

How much coffee is you single basket making.... Weight or volume please 

Are you using good fresh roasted coffee?

Just saying single basket, coffee bad, isn't enough info to understand how to help you. 

Lastly post your question on one thread only please.
