Amateur just getting started with a Breville - not happy with the results but I know I have lots to learn so I'll start with an aspect I am curious of - consistency. The Breville guide says the consistency of the shot flowing down should be of honey. First thing I say with my experience is no way, no how - mine flows through the filter like standard liquid. Things I know I need to ensure:
- a better grind - I am not using a burr grinder (yet)
- getting the grind right - not too powdery
- water temp - not sure what to do about this - the machine has control of that
But let's start with the consistency - should it really be like honey? If so, I'm no where near that and how can I be?
This is what I'm talking about - how the heck is it so thick; and the color...
