Hi all, I have just purchased a Sage Barista Touch and I am having trouble getting the flow right, the instructions say 8/12 secs b4 coffee starts, mine is 4 seconds no matter what grind size, frustration is setting.  I know this is a new machine after having an auto coffer maker...

 

Any suggestions on grind time and size...

It will likely be one of these 3 things.

Not enough coffee
Grind needs to be finer
Not tamped down enough

How long does it take for a shot of Espresso from start to finish?


Gear:   Gaggia Classic, La Pavoni Euopiccola, Niche zero grinder.

Had the grind down to 8, no difference, coffee was I overflowing, still 4 seconds ,  checked the coffee that’s fine, fresh as a daisy... I’ve read that tamping too hard can crack the puck, so tried again slightly better but still 5 seconds ... this I quite new as I had a Nespresso creatista which was auto....

When was the coffee roasted? Where are you storing it?

Yeah if it’s not fresh roasted it will just fly through the machine. What coffee is it?

Grinding finer may help as you've still got a ways to go before you run out of adjustment.
This thread may help as the OP was experiencing similar problems to you.

I think there’s a mirror thread going on elsewhere....either that or Deja Vu.
