I've had some bad coffee, but never a shot that quick at a shop, think I would walk out if I saw that and they thought that was normal lol.

That's exactly what I do, too. The problem is that a lot of coffee shops in Germany don't hire trained baristas, so the people operating the espresso machine don't really know what they're doing. Again off topic.

It has been 90% humidity the last day or so and the beans that were running very fast when it was dry outside are now almost choking the machine on the same grind.  And they are 2 days older.  I believe it affects it a lot.

Buying advice: GRINDER GRINDER GRINDER. Don't cheap out on the grinder.
