How is telling someone how they should have done it better a recommendation, Dave? I don't get it. It's like pointing out their mistakes. Wouldn't it be better to tell them how they can make improvements? Ok, we'll to be fair you did recommend a Preciso, but that was less than half of the post.

Dave would have done it better if he didn't recommend or purchase that piece of garbage in the first place.

New to the thread but, but thought I oughta way in.  New to making espresso as well.  Recently bought a used Silvia, took it home to my Breville Smartgrinder and went to work.  I personally have been dissatisfied with the performace of the Breville grinder.  It's awesome for pour over I think, pretty good consistency, easy to use, clean, etc...  But for my espresso ot just doesn't do the trick.

At first I couldn't get a shot to pull longer than 9-11sec.  Terrible.  I have two different PF's, a double spout and a bottomless along with three baskets, a single, a double and a triple for the bottomless.  After experimenting a little and using the double with the bottomless, I've been able to stretch that time to about 16 seconds with a hand-stand tamp.  Taste in the cup runs from mediocre to vomit-inducingly sour.  Just bought a Vario off Ebay.  Will be able to comment on that soon, I hope.
