Hi,
My husb and I just traveled from PDX to Seattle to pick up a Preciso and Crossland CC1. So far no good shots. I have the presteam and wait both at 2 sec., however, when I start the shot, h20/coffee goes thru immediately, than a slight delay, then the rest of the shot.  Shouldn't there be a slight delay once initiated BEFORE coffee comes through?
Thank you!
Dawn

How fresh are your beans? That problem sounds more like grinder isn't dialed right, or not calibrated right... Or beans are stale.

Thanks,
beans fresh from Seattle Coffee Gear with purchase.
The Preciso is brand new. Do you calibrate before use? I did not think so...   ?

Thats pry your problem right there. SCG stocks roasters beans and you can end up with beans weeks old or older. Espresso requires fresh roasted beans, which you can get from the same roasters they stock, or plenty of others online. The Preciso can be calibrated as well, instructions are on Baratza site. It has an adjustment window inside for coarse/neutral/fine. I have mine set to fine. And usually between Macro 7-9 or so depending on roast type, blend or so, and dose etc (CC1 double is large so I stick with 16-18 grams. If you don't have a scale, you can get a digi scale that reads to .1 grams.

What Macro/Micro setting are you using?

Thanks.
Put new beans in and now much better!

Grinder set at 6B
it stopped several times. had to jostle it (!!)

thinking these oilier beans are already plugging it. we've practiced on close to 2 # already.
:(

Wondering if I need to clean it already.
 thots? 6B too fine of a setting?


appreciate your help.

Grinder motor stopped, or running but not grinding beans with beans in the hopper?  The motor should not stop as far as I know.  Oily beans can clog the output and then beans do not feed in.

Also see Baratza.com troubleshooting.

Call Baratza, they are very helpful.  I do not believe  that the motor should stop.  Oily beans do not grind well, especially at espresso grind.  They can clog the output and load the grinder.
