Did you brew on steam mode???  Looks like it's sputtering out.

Don't think that looks good at all.

Numerous problems I see. I do not know that machine, but it appears to have a crema-enhancing portafilter. This would explain the very light color and very thin viscosity of the extraction, and the three+ ounces (80-90ml) I am guessing in 46 seconds or so.

Over there

That's what a lot of crema should look like.

Keep working at it.

I think you did really well considering what you are working with.  A lot of us started with that type of machine.  Don't be discouraged by us.

As said above there are LOTS of issues with the pull.

Not the least is that it is over extracted.

The machine that s a starter grade Saeco, though I am not familiar with that model.

Yes I put the BDB and CC1 in the same class, yes i have a reason for leaving SCG off my list, yes it is my opinion, yes it is subjective as opinions are by definition, no don't start a flame war because you disagree.

I wish I could have gotten to him first and welcomed him and encouraged him before the others....
