I recently got Breville BES870XL Barista Express Espresso Machine. I am using fresh coffee beans. For some reason, I am not getting into the espresso range. Here is my setup:
- Grinding level 5
- 17 to 18gr of coffee
- My extraction begins around 8-9 seconds and it never reaches to the espresso range.
I tried different grinding levels (lower 3 and higher 8), nothing changes. Any suggestions?
