Problematic Espresso Shots - Starts by running normally then just drips...

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

My machine has developed an issue I can’t seem to overcome.

The extraction starts after about 6 seconds and then after running normally for a 2-3 seconds it then just drips... and drips... and drips....

I am grinding in my Eureka Mignon, weighing to one decimal place, using a levelling tool and then tamping. It’s a method I have practised and almost perfected now!

It did this with both Has Bean Jailbreak and now Peyton and Byrne Speciality Espresso...

Any help much appreciated....

What happens if you run water without coffee on the portafilter? What happens if you grind coarser?
