Posted Thu May 9, 2013, 11:46am Subject: Espresso Machine not pulling properly..............
Hello Everybody! Im head barista at a coffee shop and our Espresso Machine is not pulling properly. We had it serviced a few weeks ago. The shot is thinner than it should be and the portafilter still has a layer of water in it so the puck does not come out properly. Ive messed with the grind but even when the shot is at the correct time, there is still a layer of water. We have hard water up here and Im thinking thats the problem and was curious of what all of your thoughts were.
